A Few Strong Storms Possible Wednesday


Tonight will be another quiet one. Any lingering showers will begin to shut down and we are drier through the late evening. Temperatures are going to be mild as we only drop into the low and mid 60s. Don’t forget to set an early alarm to try and grab a glimpse of the “Super Flower Blood Moon”. We’ll only see a partial eclipse here in West Virginia but it should prove to be a cool sight if we can see clear skies! The partial eclipse will be visible at 5:44 AM.

Wednesday we run the risk of a few strong storms across the region as our heat and humidity driven storms get a boost from a passing cold front. Temperatures will still be mild as we make it back into the low and mid 80s. We will still see plenty of sunshine, but the late afternoon and into the evening hours could bring some storms.

Most, if not all of the severe weather is anticipated off to our north and west but, that doesn’t completely put us in the clear for one or two storms sliding into our area. Gusty winds and small hail remain possible, through the evening and into early Thursday morning.

Thursday will see more in the way of dry times but still a risk of an isolated shower and hot with afternoon temps reaching the mid-80s. We’ll see our shower risk diminish into Thursday night with overnight lows again dropping back to the low 60s.

Friday will see more sun than showers in the early parts of the day but rain chances increase into the late afternoon and evening as a cold front brings rain, thunder, and cooler temps our way. Highs in the upper 70s. Rain sticks around into the overnight hours into Saturday morning with lows dipping back into the 50s.

Saturday will start rainy and cooler but showers and storms will diminish into the afternoon to a more scattered chance. We’ll have a mix of sun, clouds, and leftover showers and it’ll feel cooler than the last few days with afternoon temps in the upper 60s and low 70s. Overnight lows feeling comfy in the low to mid-50s.

Sunday we’ll begin to fully dry out for the second half of the weekend with temperatures moderating out into the mid and upper 60s. A little cool for this time of year but after such a hot week previously it will be a little refreshing.

Monday, we keep dry as high pressure settles in for much of the region. Highs are set to return to the upper 70s.

In the extended forecast we stay near or above average temperature wise for most of it along with dry weather remaining thanks to high pressure.
