Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
522 AM EDT Thu Mar 23 2017

Wednesday was a breezy, chilly day across the forecast area under
mostly clear skies thanks to a cold front that moved through early
in the day allowing Canadian high pressure to build southward into
the region. High temperatures were mostly in the 40s west to the
50s east. Overnight and early this morning, skies remained mostly
clear with light winds. Temperatures early this morning were quite
cold, mostly in the 20s to lower 30s, although isolated locations
had dropped into the upper teens. At 5 AM EDT, temperatures ranged
from 20 degrees at Lewisburg, WV to 39 degrees at Mt. Airy, NC.

High pressure will settle over the area today. This will result in
continued mostly clear skies, light winds, and cool temperatures.
Afternoon maximum temperatures are expected to be mainly in the
lower to mid 50s, although some upper 40s are expected across the
western mountains. On Friday, the area of high pressure will move
to the east of the area allowing for a warmer southerly flow to
return to the area. This warmer weather pattern is expected to
remain in place through most of next week. However, a series of
upper-level low pressure areas will keep an unsettled pattern in
place with numerous chances for rain and even a few thunderstorms
as we move through next week. Look for high temperatures mostly in
the 50s and 60s over the weekend and 60s and 70s much of next
week, with low temperatures mainly in the 40s and 50s as we move
through next week.
