The rain, on our plain, is about to be a pain, says the National Weather Service in Blacksburg, but it could be welcome to farmers in the area.

After a prolonged period of dry, pleasant fall weather, major rains with some thunderstorms, should hit Floyd County and surrounding areas beginning around 8 a.m. Monday and are forecast to dump at least 1-2 inches of the wet stuff on the ground.

By Tuesday morning, however, the rains should pass and leave the rest of the week dry until a few showers on Saturday and then the possbility of rain and snow for the Monday of next week.

Did they say snow?

Yep.  A “possibility.”

Overnight temperatures ae expected into the mid 30s Tuesday, then low 30s in the wee hours of Thursday and then below freezing by the weekend.

Highs in the 50s and low 60s for most of the coming week with a high in the mid 40s for overnight next Sunday as a possible prelude to some white wet stuff.

Still, the daytime hours should be relatively pleasant for the remainder of October with November kicking off with rain.

At least, that’s the forecast for the area as of this morning on October 23.  It could all change.
