Hello everyone. My husband and I would like to take a short detour along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia on our way to Richmond. We're looking at just a 30 mile stretch from Roanoke VA stopping at the Peaks of Otter visitor center before making our way back to the highway. I'm concered because the weather says 60% chance of storms. Would we be able to see anything scenic if there is a cloudy sky? Are thunderstorms dangerous while driving through that region? It should only be an hour or two drive but I don't want to go out of my way and be disappointed or stuck driving through a torential downpour.
thanks for any advice!
