FROST ADVISORY UNTIL 9 AM MONDAY, MAY 9TH FOR southeast Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Summers, Monroe, Bland, and Giles County. Clearing skies and light winds will allow sheltered valley’s and the high elevations to see patchy frost. Farmers and home gardeners take note to protect sensitive plants.

Monday high pressure takes full control of our region allowing us to clear up for a blue sky day. Winds shift from the northeast to the west allowing us to warm back up into the low 70s.

Tuesday we continues to enjoy blue skies and dry weather. Winds move out of the south helping us reach the upper 70s and low 80s. Overnights get warmer too in the mid to upper 40s.

Wednesday, we should make a shot at the low 80s in a majority of the region. Plenty of sunshine is in the forecast and with light winds thanks to high pressure we should be able to heat up just enough. Don’t forget to stay hydrated!

Thursday will see a few passing clouds with plenty of sunshine and dry weather as high pressure continues to protect us. Temps still in the upper 70s for another nice day before rain returns for Friday.

Friday while faced with growing amounts of cloud cover will stay on the drier side during the daylight hours, showers will become more likely during the evening and overnight. Temperatures despite the added hurdle of the clouds should still get near 80 for most.

Saturday will be a day mixed with rain and sunshine to start. Showers build in for the afternoon with more frequency with a few passing non-severe thunderstorms. Temperatures maintain steadily into the 70s.

Sunday, more of the same from Saturday. Cloudy and generally unsettled weather continue. This will at least help to keep pollen levels on the lower side through this weekend. Highs in the 70s.

Through the extended forecast, rain and thunderstorms return as a pattern change once again brings us southern moisture. Temperature wise we’ll remain seasonable into the 60s and 70s.

Severe weather season is here, so make sure your thoughts are turning to preparedness! Refresh your emergency kit and grab that NOAA weather radio that’s still on your shopping list. We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on the forecast so you can stay weather aware.
