Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
450 PM EST Thu Jan 19 2017

Skies were a mixture of high clouds and sunshine through the
morning and afternoon as an area of weak high pressure shifted off
the Atlantic coast. Southwesterly winds in the wake of the
departing high pressure system carried mild air into the mid
Atlantic region from the gulf coast, allowing afternoon
temperatures to range from the upper 40s across portions of
southeast West Virginia, to around 60 degrees across the Southside
of Virginia and the Piedmont of northern North Carolina.

A low pressure system will lift from the central Mississippi River
valley toward the Great Lakes region overnight, which will bring
another round of rain to the central Appalachians and the mid
Atlantic. Rainfall amounts through early Friday afternoon will
range from a quarter inch to a half inch. Overnight temperatures
will remain mild, holding generally in the low to mid 40s, while
Friday afternoon temperatures will warm into the 50s areawide.
