Expect plenty of showers this weekend.

THE WEEKEND
A low pressure system will deliver rain for the weekend. Rain will gradually move in by mid to late morning from west to east and remain light to moderate through the day.  The wettest time of day appears to be from Noon to 7PM with another wave coming in late Saturday night.

STORM RISK: The region remains locked in the cool, stable wedge. Afternoon temperatures will barely reach the upper 40s to low 50s Saturday. However, outside of the wedge, storms will be brewing in eastern Tennessee and Kentucky. A few of these may slip into the New River Valley and far southwest Virginia during the afternoon. The greatest risk would be west of Interstate 77.

SUNDAY: Several waves of rain will move through the region on Sunday, mainly in the morning through early afternoon. Highs only reach the low to mid 50s.

RAINFALL: Rain totals may top 1" from Saturday and Sunday.

NEXT WEEK

Temperatures remain below normal next week with daytime highs in the low to middle 60s. Another storm brings our next chance for rain and storms by midweek.
