**WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY** continues for Pocahontas County through 1 a.m. Wednesday. Slick travel will be possible as a result of mixed precipitation, which will allow for some light ice accumulations.
Tonight will see the steady cold rain and freezing rain over the mountains begin to shut down slowly from west to east. The main activity will be out of here before midnight. Watch out for black ice on untreated surfaces as temperatures will drop down to around 30 degrees in most spots. With temperatures in that realm, roadways that are treated should be ok, but those side roads could be dicey, especially farther up in elevation where it’s colder!
Wednesday we’ll hold onto a few lingering flurries for the ridgelines in Pocahontas and Greenbrier County. As another shot of cold air rushes in from the northwest, our typical pattern of moisture from the Great Lakes will keep our northeastern mountains in cloud cover and flurries much of the day. Everyone else will see some clearing with peeks of sunshine as temperatures work their way to the upper 30s.
Thursday is yet another day for flurries for the northeastern mountains while others enjoy a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures are still running well below average in the mid to upper 30s for daytime highs!
Friday finally looks to promise some much drier conditions into the region! It’s going to remain cold for now though with high pressure moving really taking control, with highs only in the middle 30s.
Saturday is a cold day once again! Morning temperatures in the teens don’t improve much as we see high temperatures only improve into the middle 30s.
Sunday is a repeat of Saturday with sunshine and blue skies. Highs will still be cold for this time of year in the middle 30s.
Monday finally begins the thaw we’ve been seeking for across the region! We’ll see a lot of sunshine with high temperatures in the lower to middle 40s.
Tuesday is mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the upper 40s – still below average but not by too much!
Wednesday sees partly cloudy skies and it’s yet another warmer day, as we’ll see highs jump up into the lower to perhaps middle 50s – that is going to feel great considering how cold it’s been!
In your extended day forecast we’re watching out for your Thanksgiving holiday forecast. With such a big travel weekend, it does look like we’ll see the chance of showers the week of Thanksgiving but we’re also seeing warmer temperatures too. We’ll keep you posted as we get closer. Remember, despite cold temps, fall fire season is still upon us. As we saw this season already, brush and forest fires can start and spread quickly. With not so many rainy days in the forecast, crispy conditions can be expected once again in the next few weeks. Be mindful of burning bans and make sure to follow them closely.
