WHAT WE’RE WATCHING

  • A few stronger storms possible this evening
  • Breezy, cooler air to end the week
  • Weekend looks dry and cool

REST OF TODAY

We dodged the worst of the severe weather Wednesday as storms fired just as they were exiting our coverage area. This severe storm storm below was photographed as it exited Halifax and headed toward South Hill with hail and lightning.

The second round of rain is moving in along a cold front this evening. This will provide a soaking for everyone into the night before tapering off west to east after midnight. Additional rainfall will likely range from .10″ to .25″. Overnight temperatures will slip to the 40s/50s by sunrise Thursday as skies gradually start to clear.

THURSDAY & FRIDAY

Drier weather returns for Thursday and Friday with partly cloudy skies and seasonable afternoon temperatures with highs in the low/mid 60s. Hopefully you have plenty of trash to weight down the cans on trash day. Winds turn gusty with sustained winds at 10-15mph, gusting 20-30mph at times through late Thursday evening,

Winds won’t be as strong Friday but it remains equally as cool with afternoon temperatures nearing 60° and lows in the 30s and 40s.

Sustained winds are expected to be in the 10-15mph range with gusts up to 30mph at times.

THE WEEKEND

The weekend offers very little change in the ongoing pattern. Chilly morning temperatures in the 30s/40s will lead to cool afternoon highs in the low 60s. Skies remain mostly sunny. This means great running conditions for those participating in the Blue Ridge Marathon this weekend in Roanoke.
