Tonight is yet another beautiful night! High school football, dinner on the patio, shopping, or finishing up the yard work, any outdoor activity this evening is in great shape. Temps remain mild even after sunset as we drop back through the 60s settling into the 50s by the early morning hours. Only negative note is winds begin to pick up southerly 5-10 with gusts up to 15 overnight.
Saturday we hold on to the warmth as we work our way out of the 50s by morning into the 70s by the afternoon. Showers possible Saturday late afternoon for the eastern mountains while the bulk of rain with a cold front arrives late Saturday night.
Winds will be howling Saturday, however, 20-25mph with gusts as high as 30-40mph.
Sunday a cold front stalls out over our region bringing isolated showers in the morning. Some clearing expected for the afternoon. Temps aren’t hurt much as we reach the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds still racing 10-15mph with gusts as high as 25-30mph.
Monday our stalled front continue to bring a shower risk to the region for the morning hours. Eventually we’ll clear things up for the afternoon and winds will begin to dial back. Temps remain above average in the mid to upper 60s.
Early risers Monday will be treated to a total lunar eclipse! The eclipse starts at 3am with totality around 6am. Thanks to the time change, those up early enough will be able to find the red moon along the southwestern horizon, that is if clouds clear fast enough.
ELECTION DAY should be an easy on to get out to the polls for. Mostly sunny skies and temps in the mid to upper 60s will keep things comfortable.
Wednesday will be another dry day with temps continuing to cool. Low to mid 60s expected with mostly sunny skies. Clouds increase Wednesday night ahead of another rain maker.
Thursday brings a few showers here and there with some dry hours throughout the day. Temps are on a downward slide still as we top out in the low to mid 60s. About average for this time of year.
In your extended forecast we’re watching for upper level winds to finally make the fall change. This means a few more rainy days for us as well as a more rollercoaster ride in temps. All things considered we’re right on par with a typical November weather pattern.
Remember, Fall Fire Season is in effect for West Virginia. With trees now dropping their leaves more and more along with fairly dry stretches on the way, follow fire bans in effect closely. Fall brush and forest fires can get out of hand quickly with all the extra dry fuel lying around.
