Tonight we’ll see a quick-hitting clipper bring snow to our region. Not expecting much in the way of accumulations. Folks south of Beckley will simply see flurries, Beckley through Lewisburg areas could pick up a grassy coating while those up in the eastern mountains of Pocahontas and Greenbrier county could see 1-2 inches by Monday morning. Expect temps to drop as cold air follow the snow with temps back into the teens. Wind chills will make it feel more in the single digits with negative numbers for the higher elevations.
Monday, lingering upslope snow showers through the morning will cause a slow start to the day for most across the mountains and west. Snow should end fairly quickly during the afternoon as winds shift back out of the south quickly during the day. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s.
Tuesday, another clipper system grazes our region with most snow accumulations remaining in the higher elevations to the east as upsloping develops with northwest winds setting up. While the lowlands will see a few flurries the bulk of accumulations will be limited to the mountains. Highs in the mid to upper 30s.
Wednesday a few lingering flurries for the mountains. Clouds remain for the morning but thin out throughout the day. Another shot of cold air keep us well below average in the mid 20s. Wind chills will once again be a factor so make sure to bundle up heading outside.
Thursday we dry out and spend the day basking in the sunshine. A few passing clouds will make their way by but overall we should be clear as drier air moves in. Highs will slide back into the low to mid 30s with southwest winds helping us out.
Friday hosts a cold front that will push through east to west across the region. Highs in the 30s with increasing clouds throughout the day. Snow totals at this time aren’t impressive but the track is everything so we’ll keep an eye on it. Either way, a very cold and messy end to our week is a safe bet.
Saturday dries out once again but we’re still cold with highs only in the upper 20s and low 30s. At least we’ll slowly get rid of the clouds from Friday’s storm with sunshine returning for the rest of the weekend.
In the extended forecast, we’re continuing to monitor quite the cold January for the East coast. No real signs of a warm-up are on the table through the end of the month.
