Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
538 AM EDT Tue Apr 25 2017

While rainfall continues to come to an end west of the Blue Ridge,
moderate rainfall continued across a large part of the VA/NC
Piedmont and Southside areas, contributing to new or worsening of
flooding. While some swollen creeks remain, focus is shifting
toward river flood impacts particularly on the Dan River and along
the Roanoke River east of Smith Mountain Lake. Temperatures
remained cooler than normal with temperatures only in the 40s to
lower 50s overnight along with dreary, cloudy skies.

Steadier rainfall today will be mostly confined to our southeastern
and eastern counties. Lighter, showery conditions expected outside
of these areas from the Blue Ridge foothills westward. By
afternoon, many counties away from the Virginia Piedmont should be
beginning to shake free of clouds and rain; though it will be
slower to occur in the Piedmont. The Dan River is still expected
to remain above flood stage into midweek.

A warming trend is expected Wednesday into Thursday ahead of a
cold front that will spark a renewed chance for showers and
