Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
457 AM EDT Fri Sep 22 2017

We begin the morning of the 2017 autumnal equinox similar to many
prior mornings of late...that being milder than normal
temperatures with areas of patchy fog. Fog was mainly located in
the New River Valley in NC/western VA and in the south-central
VA/northern NC Piedmont, with visibilities commonly in the 2 to 4
statute miles. High pressure continues to be in control with light
to calm winds in place. Temperatures this morning were commonly in
the 60s...though a few mid 50s were being observed in Watauga and
Ashe counties.

Shower and thunderstorm chances will be quite limited today,
mainly restricted to the NC mountains in the afternoon. The main
story is the stretch of warm weather that awaits us, with
plentiful sunshine and dry conditions leading to summerlike
temperatures. Next chance for significant precipitation doesn`t
appear to occur until mid to late next week at the earliest.
