A WIND ADVISORY has been issued for areas along the Blue Ridge, from the Roanoke Valley south through the mountains of North Carolina. For tonight, expect breezy weather with lows falling into the upper 40s.and low 50s.
Cool air will quickly move in behind the early week front bringing highs into the 50s and 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. It’ll also be pretty windy through late Tuesday. Wind gusts could reach 30-40 mph along the ridgetops. This may be strong enough to topple outdoor decorations or furniture as well as bring down trees and limbs. Watch for road debris and secure any outdoor items. Winds diminish late Tuesday and turn calm by Wednesday.
We follow that with another rain-maker Thursday through Saturday. That too will bring showers and another shot of cool temperatures. Most temperatures next week will hold in the 50s and 60s. Rain totals could reach 1-3″ through Saturday, The heaviest rain looks most likely Thursday night into Friday.
