The heat and humidity hung around longer than expected this week. Rain stayed well to the South as highs in the mid-80s kept its hold on the region. All will come to an end this morning as the last of the humidity burns off in the form of patchy fog.
A dry frontal boundary will push through Blacksburg this morning, drying us out and clearing the skies. Temperatures will be held in the mid-70s. For the first time in quite a while, thunder and lightning will not be a threat at Gobblerfest Friday afternoon.
Temperatures will warm slightly on Saturday, setting the stage nicely for the Hokie’s home opener. Early-morning tailgaters will wake up to clear skies and chilly temperatures in the 60s. By game time, temperatures will raise into the upper 70s to near 80 by kickoff. A light breeze will keep air flowing throughout the stadium without affecting gameplay. A few clouds will linger in the sky, providing little relief from the sun during the game. Be sure to remember sunscreen!
Sunshine will continue into early next week. Rain and storm chances return by Tuesday before we dry out again later in the week.
