Forecast Discussion

The record high for Galax today is 89 and there is a good chance that record will be tied or broken today.

A cold front moving in from the north will stall over central VA today. It won't make it through so we will stay in a hot and sticky air mass. It will get close enough to provide more clouds and increase the afternoon shower and thunderstorm coverage starting tomorrow. The front should make it through by Friday but will move back through as a warm front over the weekend. The vicinity of the front and the hot unstable air mass will allow for showers and thunderstorms to develop each afternoon from Wednesday through the weekend. It appears Thursday, Friday and Saturday will have widespread clouds and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening but on the bright side, high temperatures will be 8 to 10 degrees cooler.
