Wednesday night will bring mostly clear skies and very chilly temperatures. Our lows are going to drop into the low and mid 20s by the morning commute. Anything that is still wet on the roadways can freeze back up as our road temperatures drop too, so be sure to take it slow on roads that still look wet. We are quiet through the night though and don’t add any additional snow showers.
Clouds clear out quickly through Thursday morning. After another chilly and slick start to the day, we do see some improvement by the afternoon hours with highs in the mid-40s. Any snow that did survive the day before will be gone before the afternoon even begins most likely.
Friday, a few leading showers are possible through the afternoon hours as another cold front builds off to our west. We’ll notice winds pick up out of the south about 5-15mph, and temperatures take a quick rebound as well back into the mid-50s to near 60 degrees for most.
Saturday, rain moves in during the morning and spends the day here. It will be heavy at times, and along with the wind visibility will be reduced on the roads so be mindful of travel during the day. Highs in the 60s will be complemented by lows in the 20s as cold air rushes in behind the front. Any lingering moisture could transition to mix or snow showers, but most of the precipitation will have stopped by this point, so it’s unlikely that anyone but the mountains see this. No accumulation is expected.
We are dry by Sunday morning and things look nice, but chilly to end the weekend. Highs will return to the low and mid 40s and we will see sunshine return to the region.
Monday brings a quick turnaround from Sunday temperature wise. We go from the 30s back to the 50s for most, as sunny skies and southerly winds become the dominant weather feature of the day. A strong area of high pressure is expected to build to our south and should last through the middle of December.
In the extended forecast, clear and drier weather looks likely as a strong ridge builds in the southeast. We’ll expect temperatures to rise to above-average levels around this time too, which this time of the year only means above the mid-40s!
As a reminder, the Fall Burn Ban is in effect until December 31 for West Virginia. Take the time to remember the rules, and be sure to use common sense this Fall.
