A change in the forecast data over the past few days has shown a weak piece of energy above us. This piece of energy teams up with marginal humidity and warmth to get some showers and storms going Sunday afternoon.
Most of these start popping along the spine of the Blue Ridge around 1 or 2 p.m., and these will slowly drift northeast up until about sunset.
Storms will move slowly, so it’s possible that we see a couple ‘Flood Advisories’ issued by the National Weather Service.
With our weak disturbance overhead, we may maintain the chance for spotty showers and rumbles of thunder east of the Roanoke Valley overnight into Monday morning.
Anything Monday afternoon will once again be spotty and target similar areas.
Highs the next two days will generally be in the upper 70s and lower 80s in the mountains, while reaching the low to mid 80s elsewhere.
As high pressure strengthens over the Great Plains, our temperatures will rise each day this coming week. Highs in the mountains will be around 84 to 89°, while Roanoke, Lynchburg and Southside hit the low to mid 90s.
Storm chances will be pretty limited until about Friday and Saturday.
