Tonight once again provides partly cloudy skies and perhaps a spot or two of patchy fog, especially over toward the Greenbrier River Valley. Low temperatures will dip back into the upper 40s.
Friday will be a great day for anyone wanting to head outside. Jackets will be wanted in the morning with temperatures in the upper 40s but it’s a quick warm-up on the way with a southerly breeze. Temperatures will warm into the middle 70s for highs, which is nearly ten degrees above average! We will see mostly sunny skies through the middle afternoon, with clouds on the increase toward the evening. High school football at this juncture looks pretty solid other than the chance for a brief sprinkle in our western counties toward the end of the fourth quarter, with temperatures at kickoff in the upper 60s, dropping into the lower 60s by the end of area games.
Saturday looks plain wet and gloomy, with an area of low pressure providing abundant clouds and showers. This looks to be a day where you’ll want the rain gear if you plan to be outside, with highs in the middle 60s. Flooding is not expected, with occasional light to moderate showers under low clouds will be common throughout the day.
Sunday looks very chilly and still wet at times, as some wraparound moisture around Saturday’s area of low pressure impacts our region with periods of drizzle and low clouds. Highs will only be around 50 in what will be a cool November-like day. In addition to the chill and gloom, we will have a breeze to contend with, with wind gusts up to 30 mph possible.
Monday continues the risk for a few showers, with an upper-level ripple scooting through for the first day of the work week. This will keep temperatures held down into the upper 40s for highs, a good 10 to 15 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year!
Tuesday provides the risk for a few showers still yet, primarily over the mountain counties with a northwest flow persisting. It’s another chilly day though for all despite some drying in the valleys with highs around 50.
Wednesday finally sees the sunshine return, with high pressure beginning to nose back in, with partly sunny skies expected and highs in the middle 50s. Temperatures look to be remaining below normal, so keep the jackets handy!
Thursday provides mostly sunny skies with high pressure in control of our weather pattern. Temperatures will rebound a bit with a light southeast breeze, with highs in the lower 60s.
Looking ahead, beyond this weekend’s low-pressure system that will plummet temperatures once again for the second half of the weekend, conditions for much of next week once again appear below normal in terms of temperature. We will see a warming trend late next week that could get us to near average for highs in the 60s but the days of high temperatures in the 80s look to be long gone. Bridge Day next weekend is on a lot of people’s minds and at this point, a few showers are looking possible with temperatures in the lower 60s for highs. If you plan on being outside for extended periods of time, don’t forget that the interactive radar on the StormTracker 59 app will allow you to use your location to zoom in on your area so you can easily see incoming bad weather. It’s free and made with you in mind!
