Tropical Moisture on the Way Tonight



  • Cooler Today, heating back up by Thursday and Friday
  • Rain tonight for Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Summers, Mercer and Monroe from the remnants of Tropical Storm Bertha
  • More widespread showers and storm chances by Thursday and Friday

Today, we will see more of the same. We have very small shower chances and many will stay dry. We reach for the upper 70s with a few low 80s mixed into the forecast.

As we head closer to sunset though we watch the remnants of Tropical Storm Bertha will make it’s way into the two Virginias. Localized amounts of 2-3 inches of rain are possible, especially over the Appalachians. As a result of this and the fact that the ground is still saturated from last weeks heavy rains, we have a the entire area under at least a small flood risk, and a majority of our Eastern Counties under a medium flood risk!

The end of the work week is looking more active with better chances for rain as each day goes by. Thursday starts the trend with a soaking rain and a few rumbles of thunder moving in by the afternoon, despite the rain things stay warm in the upper 70s. The severe threat for Thursday looks to remain off to our west, but we will watch any storms that begin to push in.

Friday, we see another round of rain swing in this time associated with a cold front. This boosts our chances for thunderstorms but again the severe threat is limited. Highs again remain in the upper 70s and low 80s, but we are watching colder air move in behind the front for the weekend.

Saturday will bring clearing conditions. We could still see a shower or storm, especially during the afternoon, but we are looking drier than the previous two days. Temperatures will be seasonable with highs in the low to mid 70s.

Sunday looks dry as well and still comfortable with highs in the low 70s. Monday looks to keep things dry as well, with temperatures remaining seasonable in the low 70s. Wednesday we continue our drier stretch with temperatures beginning to warm up, highs in the mid 70s are expected. By Thursday we get back to near 80, with our first chances to see rain and some thunderstorms return. By Friday we continue to keep rain in the forecast, but we keep the near 80 degree temperatures.

While things aren’t looking favorable for severe weather in the short-term forecast, remember that severe weather season is now in full swing. Be sure you have two ways to receive alerts and warnings! NOAA Weather Radio is something we always recommend, and it makes a great gift too.
