Staying Gusty and Cool Tonight


Tonight will bring improving conditions. We are already starting to see clouds decrease and we will continue to do so throughout the night. Temperatures will drop back into the upper 20s and low 30s, so anything wet can ice up a bit. A widespread refreeze is not expected. Winds will remain gusty so wind chill values will likely be in the teens throughout the night.

Tuesday is going to be a nice day. Temperatures warm back up into the mid and upper 40s and we will finally see plenty of sunshine. Winds do remain gusty through the day, with winds from the west at 10-15 MPH and we could see gusts up to 30 MPH during the afternoon.

Wednesday is a very similar story to Tuesday except it’s EVEN WARMER! We’re talking highs in the upper 50s and the low 60s possibly for the coal fields. We see more sun and a nice south westerly wind. It will be a mainly dry day, but we could see a few showers try to creep in during the evening hours. This would be quick moving and most are dry again by Thursday afternoon.

A few showers will be possible to start Thursday, but clear out quickly. We will keep clouds around though and that will keep our temperatures cooler. Highs will be back to or a bit below average in the low and mid 40s

Friday, we see a chance for some showers throughout the day with mixing likely across the mountains. This won’t be a very organized system so precipitation chances are on the low for the day time. Highs hover around the low 40s for most. It also looks like the best chance for showers will be in the mountains and our southern counties. If we do see any wintry weather, it won’t amount to much.

Saturday we take another shot at the 50s across the low elevations while the mountains get stuck into another round of near freezing temps as a rain maker makes it way through. For most once again just some plain old rain. For the mountains likely to be another sloppy wet snow event. It doesn’t look like a lot of snow at this point, but some.

Sunday a fairly similar story plays out as another wave of low pressure rides up a stalled frontal boundary. Most end up back in the upper 40s and low 50s while the mountains maintain just enough cold to at least see some snow mixed in.

In the extended forecast there are hints that we might exit this above and near average temperature pattern we’re in this week and get some colder weather going again as we head into March. This also accompanies at least one storm signal making it’s way through this period too. For now, we’ll leave it that there is, as there always is, a lot of uncertainty in this period. We’ll update this as we know more!
