Cold morning leading into a rather decent afternoon

Weather

DISCUSSION:  Today will feel very similar to Thursday, aside from a slight uptick in our high temperatures in the afternoon. Plenty of sunshine will hang around through the afternoon and evening, which should help our rather cool temperatures. We are expecting upper 40s highs for most, with a few lucky spots reaching back into the low 50s.

A bit cool, but plenty of sun today.

More bitterly cold football games will be played tonight. You can expect low 30s and 20s during game time if you’re heading out in the evening for some gridiron action.

Our forecast through the weekend looks to pretty calm as well. Temperatures will be slightly below average as we climb into the upper 40s during the afternoons, but overall we will be feeling much more fall-like once again. A low pressure system will pass to our southeast and keep things a bit active around the region, though this storm system will not track close enough to southern West Virginia to bring us any rain showers.

Storm system passes to our southeast, we stay dry this weekend.

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 a shower or two depending on the day. For much of the week, our highs will be near 50, which is close to where we should be for the middle of November.

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.

Precip outlook for Winter 2019-2020

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!
