After the storm…

The top part of a poplar toppled by the wind.

Toppled trees greet some residents after a night of storms in the area (photo from an earlier storm).

High winds, hard rains and a tornado watch added to the problems Monday night in Floyd County and surrounding areas.

Fallen trees, flooded roads and power outages punctuated the woes.

Tuesday is expected to bring sunshine and drier weather back to the area and conditions should remain so for the remainder of the week until a threat of rain on Sunday.

A threat of possible snow showers for Sunday no longer appears on the outlook from the National Weather Service in Blacksburg.

Overnight lows Tuesday and Wednesday are forecast to bring temperatures down to the freezing mark and the weekend could drop the lows into the high 20s. Tuesday’s high should reach 63, then drop to 52 on Wednesday, 59 on Thursday and 64 on Friday.

Forecasts call for zero percent chance of rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, 10 percent Thursday and Friday, 20 percent Saturday and 80 percent on Sunday before heading back down to zero on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

Looks like a moderately chilly Halloween and more chances for rain when November arrives next week.

After the storm, the sun returns
