Very cold and gusty to start the day


DISCUSSION: A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Western Greenbrier and Western Pocahontas counties until 10 AM Monday morning. Wind chills in the highest terrain could range from -10 to -15 at times. Be sure to check on your friends who don’t have a warm place to go as well as your furry friends.

Wind chill advisory.

Happy Martin Luther King Day! Today will be one of the coldest days we’ve seen in 2020 so far. Morning temperatures will be in the teens as we leave for work and wind chill values will be in the single digits for most spots. The higher elevations will see negative wind chill values early on! We are also still seeing some flurries falling in spots, keeping some of the roadways a little slippery out there.

Day planner.

Afternoon temperatures will make it into the mid 20s for most. Look for a bit of cloud cover to hang around throughout the day. It’s definitely going to be a day in which the winter coat, gloves, and hat will be needed anytime we are outdoors.

Winds will die down a good bit tonight as high pressure starts to build in across the region. Temperatures will be very cold once again though, with lows in the teens.

Temperatures rebound by midweek.

A bit more sunshine will return for Tuesday and our highs will be back in the upper 20s. Dry weather looks to stick around through the middle of the week. Highs actually look to rebound and return slightly above average on Wednesday and Thursday as we make it into the mid to upper 40s and even low 50s.

Our next chance for rain doesn’t come into play until the end of the week. A dry start to Friday will lead into a few showers making a return for the second half of the day. Most of the rain holds off until Saturday morning.

Another somewhat active weekend is expected once again as we have the chance for some rain and snow on Saturday as well as more flurries possible through Sunday before we start to dry out at the beginning of the week.

We are still looking to be below average as far as snowfall is concerned for the month of January. On average, we receive 18 inches of snow during the month of January (NWS climate data for Beckley). We have kept temperatures far above average as we kicked the month off. Even though we look to close the month on a much colder note, the pattern favors drier conditions which will make it hard to fill that snow deficit.
