DISCUSSION: Winds will die down a good bit tonight as high pressure starts to build in across the region. Temperatures will be very cold once again though, with lows in the teens. We could still see some lingering flurries heading through the evening. These shouldn’t amount to much, but we could see some slick spots.
A bit more sunshine will return for Tuesday and our highs will be back in the upper 20s. We could still see some flurries early, but we gradually dry up and clear out through the afternoon. We are still well below average.
Temperatures on Wednesday start to warm back up. Highs are back in the 40s which is close to average for this time of year. We are dry and look to stay dry heading into Thursday. Highs on Thursday are back above average in the mid and upper 40s.
Our next chance for rain doesn’t come into play until the end of the week. A dry start to Friday will lead into a few showers making a return for the second half of the day. We could even see some mixing in the Greenbrier Valley.
Another somewhat active weekend is expected once again as we have the chance for some rain and snow on Saturday as well as more flurries possible through Sunday before we start to dry out at the beginning of the week. We could see some accumulation with this round, especially Saturday night, so we will watch this closely.
We are still looking to be below average as far as snowfall is concerned for the month of January. On average, we receive 18 inches of snow during the month of January (NWS climate data for Beckley). We have kept temperatures far above average as we kicked the month off. Even though we look to close the month on a much colder note, the pattern favors drier conditions which will make it hard to fill that snow deficit.
