ROANOKE, Va. – We are tracking a series of fronts that will allow the storm to develop in the next few days. In addition, we are on the hot and humid side of this field. Expect temperatures at least in the 80s Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon.
Around 2 pm Thursday, a storm will start erupting near the Blue Ridge Parkway.
It will slowly drift north throughout the afternoon and night. Although not everyone is wet, any storm can cause local flooding or even minor wind damage and hail.
A group of storms in our west will shift eastward towards our area late at night, but will gradually fail.
Come Friday, there will still be enough heat, humidity and energy around for a storm to appear after 1 or 2 things. The severe threat looks rather low, but local flooding will likely occur again.
With Free Fishing Days, it is as if Friday will have the biggest chance for rain. When a front passes Saturday, we might see some storms developing. However, wind in the mountains can limit the scope of the storm. Sunday looks amazing!
At that time, the humidity level will stop. Sundays and Mondays will be very pleasant, before the heat and humidity return through the middle of next week.
It is at this point that we hope that the remaining rain from Cristobal will be closer to the region.
We don’t expect a big impact from this, fortunately.
