Today’s road trip falls just short of 400 miles, but will traverse 4 states as we travel through Appalachia. It’s just a day trip, but are there storms out there that will slow us down?
It will be mostly cloudy but dry to start the day driving southwards into western VA. However, a boundary that’s been camping out over the Virginias into NC over the last couple of days, and by midday, showers and thunderstorms will develop south of Roanoke. We’ll be dodging these storms for the duration of the afternoon as we continue down I-81 and eventually into Johnson City. We’re not anticipating any severe weather from these storms, but they could slow us down a bit at times.
