Cloudy and cool as shower chances increase Tuesday morning
Sunny Monday, then daily chances of rain return
- Cloudy and cool with scattered showers on Tuesday
- Cooler than average temperatures this week
- Another chances of showers returning Thursday
An area of low pressure riding along a stalled front will be the focus for clouds and rain showers Tuesday, mainly along the Virginia/North Carolina border during the first half of the day. Precipitation amounts vary greatly with the highest totals in the New River Valley and along the VA/NC border counties (.25″ to .50″). Much lower totals are expected along/north of Roanoke and Central VA as well as the Highlands (less than .25″). There will be some areas that do not receive any rain Tuesday.
Clouds and showers will also keep temperatures on the cooler side with highs only in the low/mid 70s.
After a hotter than average July, our weather pattern will enter new territory for a decent stretch of this week. A nearby front will keep a slight chance of showers around. However, we do NOT expect any widespread rain events this week. This means many of us will need to continue watering the lawns and gardens.
Temperatures return to the low 80s by midweek and even upper 80s by the weekend.
