A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM TUESDAY FOR WESTERN GREENBRIER AND NORTHWESTERN POCAHONTAS COUNTY.

Tuesday, morning will see a few left over snow showers for the mountains and areas west. In addition to some minor snow showers, we will be below freeing long enough to have to worry about black ice for the early morning commute. Lows begin in the upper 20s and low 30s, as we clear out later in the day we should climb back to the 40s but winds out of the northwest will still make it feel colder than it really is. We’ll still see gusts up to 20-30mph Tuesday!

Wednesday, starts off frosty but temps warm up nicely by the afternoon into the low 60s. We’ll enjoy mostly sunny skies with fair weather clouds here and there. Winds lighten up finally and take on a more southerly direction as well!

Thursday clouds and a few isolated showers look likely as a weak cold front pushes in from the west. Most of the rain, if any, will be focused in the morning and early afternoon. Clouds will remain through the entire day though. Highs still make it back to the upper 60s and low 70s regardless.

Friday we’re clear and mild with highs all the way into the 70s now as our late month warming trend continues. A great day to get outside if you can just don’t forget to stay hydrated as the weather gets hotter, and make sure you’re wearing sunscreen!

Saturday, we continue with mostly clear skies and climbing temperatures. Highs jump back to near or just above 80 for most. The same advice for Friday carries over here too, it’s getting hot and you need to take care of yourself when you’re spending long periods of time outside!

Sunday, we’re just as hot as the other days of the weekend pushing 80 once again. Mostly sunny skies are likely through the entire day as a strong high pressure begins to set up to our east ahead of the work week.

Monday, rain is held off to our west by a strong “Bermuda High” that acts like a wall along the eastern seaboard keeping unsettled weather stalled away from us. This won’t last forever but it should provide us with a sunny and hot start to the week with highs returning to the 70s and 80s.

Through the extended forecast as our “Bermuda High” breaks down we’ll eventually see rain return to the forecast by the middle of next week. Temperatures take longer to cool off in this scenario too, which will be nice for those wishing it was summer already.

Severe weather season is here, so make sure your thoughts are turning to preparedness! Refresh your emergency kit and grab that NOAA weather radio that’s still on your shopping list. We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on the forecast so you can stay weather aware.
