Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
541 PM EDT Sun May 28 2017

A nearly stationary frontal boundary was draped northwest to
southeast across the forecast area today, spurring on scattered
showers and storms mainly North of the Interstate 460 corridor by
late afternoon. Cloud cover became abundant through much of the
afternoon hours, likely limiting temperature and storm potential
across most of the region. Afternoon temperatures ranged from the
low 70s across the higher terrain, to just above 80 degrees in the
valleys and piedmont counties. Winds were light and variable most
of the afternoon, with a few gusts in the 20s across portions of
the North Carolina and Grayson Highlands.

Additional showers and storms will remain possible Sunday
afternoon and evening thanks to a nearly stationary frontal
boundary sitting northwest to southeast across the area. A strong
storm or two will remain possible through sunset, however, most
showers and storms will only exhibit short periods of heavy
rainfall. Through the overnight hours into Memorial Day, a cold
front will arrive and bring widespread showers and thunderstorms
to portions of southside Virginia and north central North Carolina
Monday afternoon. Afterwards, diminishing rain chances will take
hold as high pressure builds in Tuesday ahead of another front
anticipated to reach the Mid Atlantic Seaboard by Wednesday
