<< Good morning, I'm Meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A large, strong ridge of high
pressure has prompted the return of
summer-like weather. Record highs were
set in Roanoke, Danville, Blacksburg
and Bluefield yesterday afternoon. This
same high pressure will provide another
sweltering afternoon today, with some
record highs being challenged. A strong
cold front enters the area later today
into Wednesday. We're not anticipating
anything more than a few isolated
showers and storms as it passes
through. The winds will also increase a
bit. The main story with this front
will be sharply cooler temperatures by
Thursday and Friday. Highs will barely
make it into the upper 60s to near 70.
We'll also monitor and upper level low


coming out of the Great Lakes by the
end of the week. This may provide
another opportunity for showers in the
western mountains....TUESDAY: Sun and

Increasing clouds. Isolated shower and

<< Good morning, I'm Meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A large, strong ridge of high
pressure has prompted the return of
summer-like weather. Record highs were
set in Roanoke, Danville, Blacksburg
and Bluefield yesterday afternoon. This
same high pressure will provide another
sweltering afternoon today, with some
record highs being challenged. A strong
cold front enters the area later today
into Wednesday. We're not anticipating
anything more than a few isolated
showers and storms as it passes
through. The winds will also increase a
bit. The main story with this front


will be sharply cooler temperatures by
Thursday and Friday. Highs will barely
make it into the upper 60s to near 70.
We'll also monitor and upper level low
coming out of the Great Lakes by the
end of the week. This may provide
another opportunity for showers in the
western mountains....TUESDAY: Sun and
clouds. High: 91 ...TUESDAY NIGHT:
Increasing clouds. Isolated shower and
storms. Low: 62...WEDNESDAY: Mostly
sunny and cooler. High: 82�..Get the
