Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
503 PM EDT Tue Aug 30 2016

Scattered showers and thunderstorms once again impacted portions
of the mid Atlantic region on Tuesday, as we remained sandwichedbetween
an encroaching high pressure and a strengthening Tropical
Depression off of the North Carolina Coastline. Skies remained
partly cloudy throughout the afternoon, with spotty storm coverage
mainly concentrated in southeast West Virginia and bordering
Virginia counties through 5pm. Temperatures were limited a bit by
the cloudcover, remaining in mid to upper 80s along and West of
the Blue Ridge, with 90s prevalent to the East. Winds remained
light and variable throughout the day.

A decaying frontal boundary will continue to initiate spotty
showers and thunderstorms across the region today, before sliding southeast
late in the day Wednesday. A stronger cold front will move
through the area on Thursday, bringing drier and cooler conditions
as high pressure settles back over the region heading into the
weekend. Our area should see little to no impact from the active
tropical waves currently impacting the Atlantic Basin.
