High pressure dominates today's forecast allowing mostly sunny skies and calm conditions. With this high pressure system gliding through, we will pick up on a southerly flow. This flow will allow us to notice a big temperature difference from yesterday into today. Highs will head into the 40s.
We are starting off the morning with temperatures in the teens under mostly clear skies. May need to have the defroster or ice scraper ready to go before your morning commute as patchy frost has formed overnight.
Overnight our temperatures will be seasonable, but chilly with lows in the 20s. Partly cloudy skies will form tonight. On Thursday, 40 degree temperatures still linger around even for some areas into Friday. A frontal system starts to inch closer to our region tomorrow allowing clouds to build in. This system should primarily arrive Friday morning in the form of rain and even some freezing rain on the eastern slopes. Freezing rain/sleet is most likely to head into the Roanoke valley. Rain showers will dominate all day.
We continue to hang onto moisture into the weekend, but a cold pool of air will dip into the area allowing more rain to transition into mixing/snowfall. Snow could continue to linger into our Monday.
Most of the area shouldn't witness a big snowfall, but some higher elevations could see higher accumulations. Slick travel is likely Friday morning and once again Saturday through Monday.
