Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
453 PM EDT Sat Jul 23 2016

Heat was the name of the game on Saturday, as Mostly clear skies
prevailed in the early morning hours. This allowed temperatures
to soar, surpassing the 90 degree mark in many spots by the middle
of Saturday afternoon, including the city of Blacksburg, Virginia
who saw its first 90 plus degree day since July, 2012. Winds
remained light and variable throughout the region, with limited
cloudcover due to the warm air aloft preventing widespread shower
and storm development.

Strong high pressure continues to build over the region resulting
in high heat and humidity through the weekend. Heat index values between
100 and 105 degrees could occur east of the mountains into Sunday
afternoon. An isolated shower or storm will be possible mainly
across the mountains over the weekend, otherwise, dry weather is
expected. Highs will range from 85 to 90 across the mountains, to
the mid and upper 90s in the Piedmont.
