Pockets of heavy rain precede a round of cooler weather - CM 🤓
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY
We are tracking a front that will move through the area Tuesday. This front moves slowly, with low pressure above us grabbing a lot of moisture from the Gulf and throwing it our way. A few showers will be around in the morning with the rain turning more widespread in the afternoon and evening. This area of rain will move slowly from west to east throughout the night.
0.5-1.5" of rain is likely across much of the area, so localized flooding is a possibility. Temperatures will start out warm in the morning and either remain steady or drop in the NRV, Highlands and Roanoke Valley. Highs around Lynchburg and Southside will be the warmest of the entire area - in the 70s.
THURSDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND
One reinforcing cold front swings through Thursday, giving us a few late day showers before passing through. Highs will be around 65-70°.
We'll return to fall-like weather with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s through the weekend.
Clouds decrease Friday, leaving us chilly Saturday morning with sunshine by the afternoon. More clouds arrive Sunday ahead of another front that could produce a few evening showers.
