It’s a busy Saturday across the area, but you’ll need the rain gear to enjoy it

Hopefully you had a chance to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather Friday! We’re already seeing some changes today in the form of extra clouds and rain increasing from the south.

There are many festivals and things to do scheduled for our Saturday, like Olde Salem Days and Virginia Tech football. If you want to attend any of those events, you’ll want the rain gear.

Here’s the chance for rain throughout the daytime hours. We expect the most widespread rain to come between 4 and 6 p.m.
