High pressure continued to dominate the region Wednesday providing
warm temperatures and light winds. However, a mid-atmospheric
disturbance brought abundant cloud cover to the region.
Temperatures were on the warm side, ranging from the mid and upper
70s west to the mid 80s Piedmont. Early this morning...skies were
partly cloudy with patchy dense fog in the valleys. Temperatures
were mostly in the 60s. At 5 AM EDT, temperatures ranged from 61
degrees at Lewisburg to 70 degrees at Roanoke and Mount Airy.
Strong high pressure aloft will remain over the region into the
weekend. A weak front will drift into the area from the northwest
today and move very slowly south into the Carolinas by Saturday
and dissipate under the large high. Isolated to scattered showers
and thunderstorms will be possible over the next few days near the
front and across the mountains. Temperatures will remain well
above normal, ranging from the 80s west to the lower and even mid
90s Piedmont. Expect muggy overnight lows in the 60s mountains to
the lower 70s Piedmont.
