National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
528 AM EDT Fri Apr 28 2017

Late Thursday afternoon, Thursday evening, and through
approximately midnight, scattered showers and some isolated
thunderstorms moved eastward across the region. Most rainfall
amounts ranged from one to two tenths of an inch. However, under
some of the heavier showers and storms amounts on the order of
one-half to three-quarters of an inch were more common. Around
midnight, fog started to form across the mountains valleys, and
continued to expand as the night progressed. The Interstate-81
corridor from roughly Christiansburg, VA to Marion, VA, as well
as, the Interstate-77 corridor from Wytheville, VA south to around
the North Carolina border, experienced a lot of dense fog. Early
morning temperatures ranged from the low to mid 50s across the
mountains with upper 50s to lower 60s over the Piedmont.

A cold front entered the region late yesterday, stalled, and will
return north during the course of today as a warm front.
Southerly flow will increase across the area and allow for much
warmer air to infiltrate the region through Saturday. A cold front
will approach the region Sunday, and cross the area Monday into
Tuesday. Anticipate a trend towards more showers and storms as the
front draws closer and then moves through. Drier weather is
expected for the middle of next week. An area of low pressure will
bring showers and storms back into the forecast by Thursday.
