REST OF TONIGHT

This is looking to be the coldest Friday high school football game so far for this season as overnight lows will fall down in the upper teens and 20s. Bundle up and bring the layers if heading out tonight!

THIS WEEKEND

Dry, windy and sunny are the perfect adjectives for this weekend. Afternoon highs will only be in the 30s and 40s with Sunday being the coldest of the two days.

Sunday morning will likely be the coldest morning of the weekend. Wind chills (feels-like temperature) will read anywhere from the single digits up to the low 20s around sunrise. Afternoon highs don’t warm much either with many areas in the NRV and Highlands never making it out of the 30s. Low 40s are possible east of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

WEEK OF THANKSGIVING

We will likely see a pattern change as we look ahead to the week of Thanksgiving. Right now, temperatures will gradually warm with mid-upper40s and low 50s on Monday. Highs will return to near-normal levels by mid-week (50s for most!)

There is a chance we could see our next chance for rain by Thursday. Timing is not definite with models as they have been back and forth with timing. Right now prepare for a little rain on Thanksgiving and on Black Friday. We will fine tune timing as more model data rolls in!
