  • Clouds increase overnight
  • Scattered showers Tuesday
  • Cooler temperatures this week

Clouds will increase late tonight ahead of a cold front that will enter the region Tuesday morning. Scattered rain showers will start to push into the west between 9AM -11AM in the New River Valley. Showers pass through the Roanoke Valley between lunchtime to 2pm. Any showers will exit the east between 3PM - 5PM Tuesday. While the front will mostly bring scattered showers, a few storms can’t be ruled out Tuesday afternoon especially for areas east of I-81.

This front will break our ridge and we will see cooler conditions build in by the middle of next week. Highs on Tuesday expected to fall to seasonable temperatures in the 70s. Lows will dip back down into the 40s.

WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY

Sunshine returns by Wednesday, but much cooler weather settles in. It looks like our high temperatures will only climb back into the mid 60s. We remain in the 60s right through the end of the work week.

Thinking of starting the garden? It does look like we could see some frosty conditions again Wednesday night into Thursday morning as lows will dip into the 30s and low 40s. You may want to bring the plants indoors, especially Wednesday night, just in case we see some frost. We eventually start to gradually warm things up as we close out the work week.

WEEKEND

We start the weekend off with a mix of sun and clouds. Our high temperatures Saturday climb back into the lower 70s. We bring back the chance of showers Sunday as our highs climb back into the low and middle 70s.

Shower chances are possible again Sunday as a warm front moves through.
