Roanoke, Virginia – You can thank the high pressure wedge for the brief cooling on Friday. We peaked only in the 50s in the afternoon in most of Southwest and Central Virginia.
Saturday will be much warmer! For the change we can thank the warm front that passes through the region, because in the afternoon the wind will move to the south and provide air in the spring.
We’ll have plenty of clouds to start the day, but look for them to clear before noon and in the afternoon.
Warmer air will remain on Sunday and Monday. In fact, both days we will be pretty close to record highs!
You can see in the map below how far north there will be a jet stream in the second half of the weekend.
During the day on Monday we will observe high energy levels and a strong cold front.
The result? Later in the day and night on Monday rains are possible from west to east.
The Center for Storm Forecasting (SPC) has already identified a small risk (level 2 of 5) of severe weather west of us.
It is possible that in areas west of the Blue Ridge there is a separate strong storm. Be sure to check to find out the exact timing and consequences.
After the front we will be much colder by the end of the week. The next chance of rain will be on Wednesday.
