ROANOKE, Va. – We have been spoiled for the past three days with cool, refreshing mornings and pleasantly warm afternoons.
A slow front will change on Tuesday and Wednesday. That doesn’t mean it will be wet all the time, but there will be the chance of occasional showers and thunderstorms.
A weakening thunderstorm group will throw more clouds and a few showers in our direction through noon Tuesday. Any storms that form in the heat of the next day will be fairly scattered.
High temperatures on Tuesday are only reaching the 70s in much of the region, due to the abundance of cloud cover.
Our front still persists nearby on Wednesday. This, combined with more heat and humidity, will trigger another round of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, evening and late at night.
Localized flooding, damage caused by wind or hail cannot be excluded.
Thursday and Friday will still be warm, but humidity levels will be lower than Wednesday.
They will rise from Friday evening to Saturday, when another front triggers showers and thunderstorms.
Once that passes, humidity levels drop again on Sunday.
Highs will be in the 70s and 80s every afternoon this weekend. Morning temperatures, especially on Sunday, will only start in the 50s.
A strong area of high pressure then forms over the central United States, which will likely bring warmth or more consistent heat ahead of Father’s Day weekend.
For updates on the forecast leading up to Father’s Day, be sure to check back frequently with our weather app.
