Tonight remains dry with partly cloudy skies. However, the high-pressure system that kept us dry will be fading, as our next system approaches. Temperatures will dip back into the upper 50s. We should have enough of a southeasterly breeze to prevent the thick fog we encountered this morning but some pockets of fog cannot be ruled out as we move toward dawn.

Tuesday brings a cold front into the region during the evening hours. Out ahead of it, a bit of a muggy airmass will allow a few scattered showers and rumbles of thunder to form. Flooding is not expected, but a brief downpour or two is possible. We’ll have plenty of breaks in between showers. The cold front itself will cross near dusk from west to east and we’ll see our temperatures cool down behind that for Wednesday. High temperatures on Tuesday will be in the middle 70s. 

Wednesday has a pattern that is reminiscent of fall, with gloomy conditions likely during the first half of the day with a northwest flow behind Tuesday’s cold front. This will likely give us periods of drizzle for the first half of the day, especially over the mountains, but we’ll see a slow clearing trend take place during the afternoon. High temperatures will be chilly for this time of the year, as the mercury only climbs into the middle 60s! The coolest high temperature every recorded in Beckley for September 13th is 66 degrees and we’ll challenge that! 

Thursday’s headline weather-wise will be the chill, as temperatures Thursday morning will be in the middle 40s to begin! That’s not close to the record – Beckley’s record low for September 14th is a freezing 29 degrees – but it’ll be well below our average of 56 degrees as we will wake up with temperatures in the middle 40s across the region. You better bet there will be some pockets of temperatures near cold enough to frost up in the mountains! Plenty of sunshine will allow a nice rebound as we will see highs make a run to near 70 degrees under mostly sunny conditions. 

Friday continues the sunny trend, as well as the warmer trend with high temperatures around 70 under mostly sunny skies after beginning the day all the way down into the middle 40s! High school football looks great weather-wise but bring the coats as temperatures will fall quickly after sunset.

Saturday is yet another wonderful day in southern West Virginia weather-wise, with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures in the lower to middle 70s.

Sunday brings the risk for a couple of isolated showers late in the day as our next storm system looks to scoot toward the region with high in the middle 70s.

Monday provides the potential for a few scattered showers with our next system moving into the region. High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 70s, as the slightly below average conditions look to continue.

Looking ahead, temperatures for the following week look to be near normal for this time of year in the middle 70s. We are now in the peak timeframe for hurricane season – so we’ll be watching the tropics closely for any developing systems that could eventually impact our areas.
