NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BLACKSBURG VA  
522 AM EDT THU MAR 23 2017  
   
WEATHER SUMMARY
 
 
WEDNESDAY WAS A BREEZY, CHILLY DAY ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA UNDER  
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES THANKS TO A COLD FRONT THAT MOVED THROUGH EARLY  
IN THE DAY ALLOWING CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE TO BUILD SOUTHWARD INTO  
THE REGION. HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE MOSTLY IN THE 40S WEST TO THE  
50S EAST. OVERNIGHT AND EARLY THIS MORNING, SKIES REMAINED MOSTLY  
CLEAR WITH LIGHT WINDS. TEMPERATURES EARLY THIS MORNING WERE QUITE  
COLD, MOSTLY IN THE 20S TO LOWER 30S, ALTHOUGH ISOLATED LOCATIONS  
HAD DROPPED INTO THE UPPER TEENS. AT 5 AM EDT, TEMPERATURES RANGED  
FROM 20 DEGREES AT LEWISBURG, WV TO 39 DEGREES AT MT. AIRY, NC.  
   
FORECAST SUMMARY
 
 
HIGH PRESSURE WILL SETTLE OVER THE AREA TODAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN  
CONTINUED MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES, LIGHT WINDS, AND COOL TEMPERATURES.  
AFTERNOON MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE MAINLY IN THE  
LOWER TO MID 50S, ALTHOUGH SOME UPPER 40S ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE  
WESTERN MOUNTAINS. ON FRIDAY, THE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE  
TO THE EAST OF THE AREA ALLOWING FOR A WARMER SOUTHERLY FLOW TO  
RETURN TO THE AREA. THIS WARMER WEATHER PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO  
REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH MOST OF NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER, A SERIES OF  
UPPER-LEVEL LOW PRESSURE AREAS WILL KEEP AN UNSETTLED PATTERN IN  
PLACE WITH NUMEROUS CHANCES FOR RAIN AND EVEN A FEW THUNDERSTORMS  
AS WE MOVE THROUGH NEXT WEEK. LOOK FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES MOSTLY IN  
THE 50S AND 60S OVER THE WEEKEND AND 60S AND 70S MUCH OF NEXT  
WEEK, WITH LOW TEMPERATURES MAINLY IN THE 40S AND 50S AS WE MOVE  
THROUGH NEXT WEEK.
