Pinpoint Weather: One more dry day

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Dry conditions will continue for Thursday, but clouds will start to build into the region.

As high-pressure slides to the east, winds will shift to the south and southwest, which will allow warmer conditions to return to the region.

The upper-level high pressure that has brought a string of dry days to the East Coast will break down, which will allow rain to return off-and-on starting Friday and continuing through Tuesday.

Rain is expected to be light to moderate through the period. No one day will be a washout. The best rain chances are Friday evening, Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning and Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. Rainfall totals will be between half an inch and one inch. Because it is stretched over several days, flooding does not appear to be a threat.

Once the rain moves out next week, cooler air will return with high temperatures starting Monday dropping into the 50s. Temperatures will only be in the 40s starting Wednesday.
