  • Tracking two systems that bring us a chance for rain
  • Won’t be raining all weekend long
  • High temperatures warming up

Rain chances peak this evening and slowly become less numerous after sunset. Even then, we can’t rule out a few showers overnight. Areas of fog are possible early in the morning hours, and more widespread for areas receiving light rain Friday.

SATURDAY

A better chance for showers builds in Friday and again Saturday. You’ll want to bring the umbrellas for graduations and outdoor events.

Scattered showers will come in waves throughout the day, moving east to west. We’re not expecting a complete washout or an all-day rain. However, it be wet at times so be sure to dress and plan accordingly. Have the WDBJ7 Weather App downloaded so you can check the radar and see when you can take that quick walk around the neighborhood or pickup the groceries.

On & off showers with mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast all day Friday.

During the afternoon, isolated storms are possible as high temperatures climb to the 60s/low 70s thanks to a wedge setup developing for our region. The same conditions set up for us overnight with temperatures reading in the upper 50s and low 60s.

We’ll see more of the same on Saturday. Again, Saturday won’t be a washout, but we can expect a few showers and even an isolated thunderstorm. Highs on Saturday get a little warmer. Our temperatures climb back into the mid 70s.

More scattered showers Saturday with an isolated afternoon storm.

SUNDAY

Clouds will break some Sunday ahead of an approaching cold front. This will allow for increased instability which may allow for occasional thunderstorms. Not looking at storms to be severe, but any that develop would be decent soakers. Isolated flooding issues are possible.

Scattered showers continue into Sunday.

NEXT WEEK

We’ll see more sunshine Monday with a few pop-up thunderstorms. We quiet down Tuesday with sunny skies as our highs continue to warm back into the 80s. We bring back the chance for a few thunderstorms on Wednesday.

Peaking ahead to near the end of the ten day outlook highs look to climb into the upper 80s and even 90s for some as some of the warmest air so far this year moves in.

Temperatures will warm close to 90 by the end of next week. Get ready for the heat because it's...
