A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Greenbrier, Summers, Monroe, and Mercer counties until midnight Thursday AM. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Pocahontas county until 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Wednesday afternoon and evening will be spent slowly drying out with breezy conditions behind the front continuing. It will be a slow process drying out as lingering showers will still be mixed in with the overcast skies but the heaviest of the rain will be out of the picture by now. Highs today will only be into the low to mid-70s.

Thursday, we’ll be cool with clouds clearing throughout the day. High pressure is moving in from the north bringing with it much drier air which will break the oppressive humidity we’ve dealt with for the past few weeks. Highs in the low to mid-70s are expected.

Friday, still quiet and dry. High pressure is working its late summer magic providing us with a taste of fall across southern West Virginia. Morning lows Friday will be into the upper 40s and low 50s, while afternoon highs will hover towards the mid-70s.

Saturday, a few more clouds are possible as a cold front lingers nearby. Highs into the mid and upper 70s are expected, fairly seasonable for the beginning of September. Overall we should remain dry outside of a few isolated showers.

Sunday, our cold front passes bringing some showers and maybe a rumble or two of thunder with it. We’ll be cloudier through most of the day but some sun should show itself at times. Highs in the upper 70s and the low 80s are expected.

Monday could bring a few spotty showers leftover in any lingering cloud cover from the day before but chances remain on the low side. We won’t clear out fully as another front is waiting in the wings just to our north for Tuesday, this might also contribute a little to our shower chances during the day. Highs in the mid to upper 70s are forecast.

Tuesday, as another front passes us by more showers and some rumbles of thunder are probable. Overall not much in the way of out of the ordinary rainfall is expected here. Highs in the mid-70s.

In the extended forecast we look to stay cool towards the middle of September. Not much in the way of rain looks likely in the time period for now, but that can easily change this far out!

Summer isn’t quite done with us just yet so the threat of severe weather across the two Virginias remains. Make sure you and your family have a plan in place for what to do when severe weather strikes. One of the most important parts of that plan is having multiple ways to receive weather alerts and warnings. Two great ways to get them are having the StormTracker 59 app downloaded and purchasing an NOAA Weather Radio for your home and on the go.
