DISCUSSION: We will hit our high temperatures early on today before cold air starts to arrive across the area. Drier conditions will take over as well behind the cold front. Expect temperatures to drop throughout the afternoon and evening as we dip into the 40s and eventually 30s.
Cold nights return for the first time in a while, as overnight lows dipping down into the low 30s and possibly 20s.
Drier conditions hold tight through most of Tuesday with the chance for just a few showers/flurries for the mountains. If you are heading out to celebrate on New Year’s Eve, be prepared for a cold night as temperatures drop into the upper 20s.
New Years Day will be another chilly one with temperatures near average. Expect highs in the low 40s under partly cloudy skies. We are looking to stay dry though!
Unsettled conditions could return as soon as Thursday though, with a wet finish the the week looking likely. This looks to be in the form of mainly rain, with just a small chance of mixing during the evening hours through the end of our weekend.
Despite temperatures returning near average for the start of the 2020, much of the next couple of week is looking warmer than average. With warmer temperatures continuing to dominate the pattern, it’s going to be tough to see any widespread snowfall during the period. On average, we receive 18 inches of snow during the month of January (NWS climate data for Beckley). If this warm pattern hold tights through the first half of the month, there’s a good chance we will see below normal snowfall totals for the January.
