Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
427 PM EST Fri Feb 24 2017


A weak high pressure center along the Mid Atlantic coast provided
partly cloudy conditions with patches of fog early Friday
morning. Overnight temperatures varied from around 40 in the
colder mountain valleys to the mid 50s across southern portions of
the region. Any residual clouds cleared the area by mid morning,
allowing for daytime heating to take full effect. Afternoon
temperatures in the mid seventies were prevalent area wide,
nearing record values for a few climate observation sites. No
precipitation was observed across the region as of 5pm.


High pressure will weaken and move off of the mid Atlantic
seaboard overnight Friday into Saturday, as a cold front
approaches the region from the West. Ahead of the front, showers
and a few thunderstorms are expected to impact the area. These
showers look to push into the western portions of the region just
after sunrise on Saturday, finally pushing east of the forecast
area just after the lunchtime hour. Winds are expected to shift
from southerly to northwest flow behind the front, allowing for
cooler temperatures to finish off the weekend. Another warm up is
expected early next week, with afternoon temperatures in the 60s
expected again as soon as Tuesday.
