Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
525 AM EDT Sun Aug 28 2016

Isolated showers and thunderstorm dotted the landscape Saturday
evening through about midnight. While most folks stayed dry, those
locations that did receive precipitation received a lot of it.
Much of the precipitation was slow moving, and allowed for rain to
accumulate on the order of at least one-half inch. Precipitation
occurred over parts of the New River Valley and Mountain Empire
region of southwest Virginia, the mountains and foothills of North
Carolina, and over parts of southeast West Virginia. The heaviest
rain fell near Trout, WV where estimates from radar suggest close
to two inches. Early morning temperatures were on the mild side
for this time of year. Readings ranged from the mid to upper 60s
across the mountains with upper 60s to lower 70s across the

The area will remain in pattern that promotes above normal
temperatures with elevated humidity levels through at least the
middle of next week. Daytime heating and a series of weak fronts
will also keep isolated to scattered showers and storms in the
forecast, especially for areas along and west of the crest of the
Blue Ridge. A minor decrease in temperatures is expected toward
the end of next week as drier, and slightly cooler, high pressure
enters the region in the wake of a cold front.
