Cold and Windy Friday

Weather

Through the afternoon, we continue to see clouds and sun alternate while still remaining fairly breezy along the mountains. Temperatures despite climbing a little into the 30s for most will still feel like the 20s due to the windchill. Jackets remain critical throughout the rest of the day. Overnight skies clear out again and winds lighten up, allowing us to drop back into the low 20s for Saturday morning.

Saturday, we’re dry and a bit clearer than the day before. Winds will lighten up significantly versus days past and they’ll shift more out of the south. This will allow highs to rebound a bit back into the 40s for most.

Sunday, clouds build back in slowly throughout the day as a strong storm system begins to come together off to our west. Showers look likely as we head towards the evening which will transition to just rain by the overnight hours as our cold front barrels through. We’ll be far too warm for snow just yet. Highs in the upper 40s and low 50s, lows in the 40s. Winds will be a big issue through the night with gusts topping out over 30mph!

Monday, rain will switch over to snow as our cold front passes overnight. This will lead to slick travel heading out the door for many as icy spots will be likely especially on bridges, overpasses, and untreated side roads. Accumulations look unlikely, but for some grassy and elevated surfaces a coating might be possible. Highs will be in the upper 30s, but temperatures by the afternoon will be more in the range of the upper 20s and low 30s.

Tuesday, while our cold front is long gone the upper-level system that spawned the storm in the first place is still yet to pass us. Round two of this storm will consist of snow showers across parts of southern West Virginia, mainly focused along the high elevations and their western slopes. Highs in the low 30s and upper 20s are expected. Wind chill values are likely to be in the teens and single digits!

Wednesday, after one of the coldest starts since last winter with most in the 20s and teens, we’ll warm up slightly into the upper 30s and low 40s by the afternoon. Clearing skies will bring in more sunshine too, which won’t be as helpful in warming us up as earlier in the year, it should feel warmer in the sun at least.

Thanksgiving we remain cool through the day but thankfully dry so any family traditions should be able to go off without a hitch if they’re done outside. Just don’t forget to bring a jacket! Highs in the mid-40s, lows drop back to the 30s for most overnight.

In the extended forecast, generally cold weather is here to stay with temperatures running below average likely through the end of November. There are a few storm signals trying to organize after the holidays that we’re watching in the WeatherLab. Keep checking back as we get more data in!

As a reminder, the Fall Burn Ban is in effect until December 31. Take the time to remember the rules, and be sure to use common sense this Fall.
