Low pressure will remain stalled over the Tennessee and Ohio River Valleys for a bit longer into our Thursday evening. On-and-off rain looks likely into tonight, with locally heavy downpours still possible. . Temperatures tonight will remain in the 50s under the cloud cover/fog and showers.
Tomorrow, we should finally be a bit warmer, pushing into the upper 60s and low 70s, and we could see some breaks of sun during the day. This system will finally start to head east and off into the Atlantic into Friday, but we will still be a bit unsettled on the backside of this low. While the rain looks more scattered than widespread in nature tomorrow, we'll still have the possibility to see locally heavy downpours, especially because we could see a few thunderstorms pop up to end the work week Though the worst of the rain will come to an end tonight....RUNOFF could still induce river flooding issues through the end of the week.
A FLOOD WARNING is in effect until Saturday for the New River at Glen Lyn, affecting parts of Giles, along with Summers and Mon012roe counties downstream. See warning here
A FLOOD WARNING is in effect until Saturday for the Walker Creek at Bane, affecting parts of Giles county. See warning here
A FLOOD WARNING IS is in effect until Saturday for the New River at Allisonia, affecting parts of Wythe county.
As the low continues to make its way offshore, a warming trend will ensue into the weekend. Highs on Saturday, Sunday, and Memorial Day look to be in the 70s, while lows should be in the upper 50s/low 60s. Despite the return of seasonable weather, we won't exactly be "dry". With several weak upper level disturbances swinging through the Appalachians, we could at least see some spotty/pop-up showers and t-storms through the entire weekend. Rain will not be as widespread or as steady as it has this week though, which should keep our flooding risk lower through the holiday weekend.
