Saturday remains warmer than average but rain showers and some steadier pockets of rain will be with us all day long as a cold front continues to slowly push its way through. Winds will get gusty again through the evening hours with some gusts topping out at over 30mph! Highs remain in the mid to upper 50s with the mountains remaining in the upper 40s and low 50s.



Rain totals between Thursday night and very early Sunday morning look to range from a half of an inch to an inch and a half. The further west and north you are the more you see. While our eastern counties really need the showers at this point, they look to be on the lower end of the range. The good news is, this should still help out a bit.

Sunday our cold front gets the boot, and we cool off quickly across the region. Highs in the 30s are expected across much of the region, reminding us winter is only a few short days away at this point. We should remain dry during the day, but an early morning shower can’t fully be ruled out. We get frosty once again overnight with lows in the 20s.

Monday continues our wintry feel with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s. Mountains look to remain in the low to mid-30s. We should remain dry for the most part, but a few of our southern counties might get clipped by some showers from a system moving through the southeastern US.

Tuesday, highs remain in the 40s for most, even in the mountains. Clear skies dominate as high pressure is in control for the time being. For the most part, outside of being a bit chilly, this should be a fairly nice way to start off Winter!

Wednesday, highs stick to the low 40s for most. Overall were fairly quiet, with mostly clear skies throughout the day. Holiday travel should be in the clear as it starts to pick up around this point in the week, no major obstacles weather-wise are expected.

Thursday, we’re still quiet in anticipation of the holidays. Another easy travel day is expected for everyone, whether their commuting or heading off to see family. Highs will make a quick jump to the upper 40s with a few low 50s popping up here and there.

In the extended forecast, everyone’s mind is on holiday travel conditions. Right now we are tracking a storm signal for Friday into Saturday (Christmas Eve into Christmas Day) that could bring some disruptive weather to the area. Precipitation types, amounts, specific impacts, etc… will come as time goes on. We’re simply too far to say right now.

As a reminder, the Fall Burn Ban is in effect until December 31 for West Virginia. Take the time to remember the rules, and be sure to use common sense this Fall.
