Temperature bump Thursday is brief; more wintry weather coming

Roads could turn briefly slick in areas that pick up light snow accumulation, late Friday through Saturday morning. Most of us will stay dry, but temperatures will struggle to rise much and almost everybody is expected to stay below freezing through the day. As the system pulls away, a few flurries are possible Monday with highs staying in the 30s and 40s. The weekend begins with periods of snow starting Friday afternoon that will drop 2 cm even as the mercury rises from the morning's -4 C to 3 C. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 50s to low 60s.

The best chance of completely sunny and dry days will be Thursday and early Friday as we remain between systems.

Little if any sleet or snow accumulation is expected, and any accumulations will only be on grassy areas and other elevated surfaces. Lows in the mid to upper 30s. Check back for updated forecasts as we get closer.

Thursday Night: Becoming cloudy.

We're watching another round of cold air that will enter the region Saturday. Lows tonight stay steady in the lower 40s. Around 10 a.m. Saturday, that rain will be switching to a wintry mix (sleet then wet snow for some, especially in the Northern Valley).

It looks like the best coverage of snow would be areas across the I-64 corridor, whereas areas to the south of Roanoke would see primarily rain.
