DISCUSSION: Today is looking pretty nice though, after a chilly start. There will be more sunshine and highs will be close to 50 degrees for many of us.
Quiet, rain free conditions are looking likely to begin following week as well. Our pattern will favor a lot of dry time with just a chance for an isolated shower at most. This would potentially come from a weak front that looks to enter the area on Monday, but most models aren’t showing much precipitation for this system as it arrives in West Virginia. Expect more clouds, though.
More dry time is expected into the middle of the week as well. Increased cloud cover and cooler air from the cold front will result in Tuesday’s highs being a few degrees cooler than the other days this week. Expect mid 40s. Wednesday looks to bring more low 50s alongside dry weather.
Showers will begin to move back in as we close out next week. Right now it looks like we could see some showers move in late Thursday at the earliest. Friday is shaping up to be a bit unsettled with some rain showers as a front moves through the area. We should expect to dry things out by the weekend once this system exits.
The 2019-2020 Winter Outlook has been released. Southern WV is expected to have a winter with above average temperatures and above average precipitation. This doesn’t mean we won’t see snow or any bitterly cold snaps. While temperatures are expected to be generally above average, we could still have days where temperatures are well below average.
This outlook can’t predict big snow storms, or even how much snow we see. With above average precipitation in the forecast it could mean we see more rain AND snow. It just depends on the individual systems and their timing. Only time will tell!
