Drier for Thursday and Friday, Rain this Weekend

Weather

Thursday, it looks like we can squeak out an almost completely dry day to round out the week. The risk of an isolated shower will still linger in the forecast but we should end the day much drier than any other day this week. Highs return to the mid and upper 80s.

Friday is trending drier as our pattern shifting low pressure is expected to move a bit slower than anticipated, meaning we kick off the weekend on a high note with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid and upper 80s. A few showers will work their way in during the late evening and the overnight hours though.

Saturday our low pressure comes crashing down from the north right into our stubborn high pressure that’s been off to our south and east all week long. Showers and storms will be widespread and everyone has a solid chance of seeing rain at some point during the day as the cold front pushes through. Highs remain near the 80s.

On Saturday we do have a small risk of flooding across West Virginia, as rain is expected to be heavy at times along our passing cold front. We’ll have to watch poor drainage and flood-prone areas throughout the day. This is not expected to be a widespread issue, only in a few isolated areas.

Sunday, our front is still hanging out causing widespread rain and storms during the daytime. Highs are a bit cooler back into the 70s as rain and clouds will be limiting daytime heating.

Monday we see the tail end of the influence of our weekend cold front. Rain will still be possible through much of the day but the most widespread chances will come through the afternoon hours. We’re still a bit cool back into the upper 70s but overall we are still close enough to average.

Tuesday brings the last lingering showers during the morning and afternoon before we slowly dry out. Highs will hover towards the upper 70s and low 80s for most right around average for this time of year.

Wednesday brings another short lived dry day in the forecast. More sun than clouds is expected as high pressure grabs hold. Highs will make the jump back to the 80s for most by this point too.

In the extended forecast we have a few dry days in the forecast as high pressure settles in from the north. This will give us a nice break before chances for unsettled weather return in the long term. Highs will stick to the upper 70s and low 80s during this time.
