Tonight will continue our cold conditions with tonight being especially a chilly and cold night ahead. While much of us will be dry and with minimum cloud cover, our temperatures will start to see our first taste of winter, getting down into the 20s for most areas. For that reason, the National Weather Service has upgraded our Freeze Watch to a Freeze Warning across the region. The National Weather Service has also issued a new Frost Advisory across the areas not effected by the Frost Warnings.
Sunday expect widespread frost with the higher elevations seeing their first freeze. Temps Sunday morning will be in the low 30s with higher elevations in the mid to upper 20s! At least the sunshine will be around all day but don’t expect it to help temps as we only push the mid 50s.
Monday we start to warm things up from the weekend as we continue with the sunshine. Temps still cold to start in the 30s and 40s but this time we’ll push the 60s by the afternoon.
Tuesday is a copy and paste day starting off in the mid to upper 40s then pushing closer to the 70 degree mark with the lowlands pushing just ever so slightly past 70.
Wednesday is another clear and comfortable day with highs pushing ever closer to the 70 mark once again. Folks in the low lands won’t have any issue making it but our mountain county friends will be stuck in the mid to upper 60s.
Thursday will be our first day in a while where we feature mostly cloudy skies once again. After enjoying some rather dry conditions, we have a frontal system making its way into the region and featuring showers in the late afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be still near the 70 mark, getting into the mid and upper 60s once again.
Friday is looking much calmer compared to our Thursday. We will still be dealing with some clouds in our forecast but it should be a dry and calm Friday. Expect temperatures to fall into the 60s.
Saturday will continue our dry spell from Friday where it will be mostly clear but it will continue the cool temperatures. Our temps will get into the upper 50s.
In your extended forecast we’re tracking a few rain makers bringing with them colder air and the potential…dare we say…our first snow chance of the season for some in our region. On average, some WV mountain counties could see snow as early as October 16th which adds up with how long range models are shaping up.
REMEMBER: Saturday, October 1st is the start of the Fall Fire Season for West Virginia. Fire Bans go into effect with no outdoor burning from 7am to 5pm daily until December 31st. After 5pm, follow these guidelines and laws to limit the risk of fall wildfires.
