Monday evening will bring a few showers and thunderstorms. They will not be as widespread or as severe as the severe storms we saw on Sunday night, especially in Fayette, Greenbrier, Raleigh, Summers, McDowell, Wyoming and Pocahontas counties. A cold front is moving through and will drop our temperatures quickly into the mid and upper 50s. You may want a light jacket as you head out the door on Tuesday.
Tuesday we’re noticeably cooler and with much drier air as highs drop to the 70s for everyone. Winds will be mostly out of the northwest with plenty of sun and the odd chance at a few showers or storms by the afternoon. Most will remain dry and you will certainly notice the lower humidity throughout the day.
Wednesday we remain cool, with highs in the low 70s. High pressure has taken control from the north at this point signaling a quick shift in our weather back to dry and sunny conditions. It will be a nice and comfortable day!
Thursday, more sun is expected and some shifts in the wind to a more westerly direction should help temperatures back to the mid 70s for most. This is the kind of weather we really need after the past week or so!
Friday we keep high pressure in place for one more day. Winds are fully back out of the south by now bringing us back to the 80s for most. Sunshine will be with us through the day but clouds will thicken up by the evening hours as a cold front approaches for Saturday.
Saturday despite rain and clouds in the forecast highs should make it back to the 80s as winds pick up from the south ahead of our cold front. A few thunderstorms should be expected as the front passes, along with fairly gusty winds. Severe weather is not expected at this time, but keep checking back for updates. We will still see plenty of dry time and even a little bit of sunshine.
Sunday will end up fairly similar to Saturday, rain, a few thunderstorms, and clouds will all remain as a secondary cold front slides through. Highs should still make it near the 80s. We could see a few more showers than we did the previous day.
In the extended forecast rain chances continue to grow as an unsettled pattern sets back up over the east coast. Highs remain near average in the low 80s through much of this period too.
