Strong cold front moves through later today - CM 🥶
We're tracking a cold front that will move through the area Tuesday. Because of it, we'll notice a gusty wind at times out of the northwest. Highs in the NRV and Highlands will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s - in the mid to upper 40s from Roanoke to Lynchburg and low to mid 50s in Southside.
As the wind continues to usher in colder air, we'll see temperatures drop into the 20s first thing Wednesday morning.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
Arctic high pressure settles in, leading to a cold and windy start to Wednesday with temperatures in the 20s. Wind chills will be lower. Highs Wednesday only reach the 30s, despite more sunshine. We fall into the teens by Thursday morning with highs in the 30s and 40s under ample sunshine.
FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY
Friday starts dry and cold. Highs reach the 30s and 40s. As a storm system digs into the Eastern U.S., we'll see the chance for snow and a rain-to-snow changeover farther east. This takes shape Friday evening into Saturday morning.
For now, the chance of anything significant here is low. However, it's likely this turns into a full-blown Nor'Easter for New England. This means colder air and high wind gusts by Saturday. Highs will be in the 30s Saturday with decreasing clouds. Sunday looks mostly sunny with morning lows in the teens and 20s. Afternoon highs reach the 30s and 40s for most.
