DISCUSSION: A WIND CHILL ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR WESTERN POCAHONTAS AND WESTERN GREENBRIER COUNTIES UNTIL 8 AM THIS MORNING. Wind chills in the advised areas could be as low as -15 through the overnight hours.

Wind Chill Advisories

Thursday is looking much better. We bring back plenty of sunshine and temperatures will begin to warm up. Highs by Thursday afternoon are expected to reach the mid and upper 30s. While it’s still below average, it’s above the freezing mark and certainly warmer than what we saw on Wednesday. It will be a cold start to the day though!

The Day Ahead

Friday through Sunday look even better! We will keep sunshine around through the weekend and temperatures will remain close to and above average. We are back in the mid and upper 40s on Friday and Saturday and reach the 50 degree mark by Sunday!

We kick off the short work week with more 50 degree weather. A storm system will pass to our south and east and could bring some clouds to places south and east of I 64 and I 77. Rain looks to be too far south, but a few showers can’t be ruled out in Tazewell county, just depending on where the storm tracks. We will keep the forecast dry for now, but may need to add a small rain chance for our southern counties.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day shows dry conditions and warm temperatures! We could be dealing with highs in the 50s both days! Christmas travel locally looks to be smooth sailing as well.

Boxing day also looks quiet. We will keep temperatures above average in the 50s with sunshine around. Friday is when things will begin to change. We see clouds increase on Friday and some showers will be possible as our next storm system moves in. We look to remain all rain as temperatures are still warm. Heavier rain is likely Saturday and cold air returns by Sunday.

If you were hoping for a White Christmas, don’t get your hopes up. As temperatures stay a bit more mild and we stay dry, it is very unlikely anyone will have the required inch of snow on the ground to qualify for a White Christmas. Maybe next year!
