DISCUSSION: More sunshine will return for the afternoon our highs will be back in the upper 20s, which is an improvement from Monday but still below average. The flurries that we’ve seen early on should quickly taper off through the afternoon as high pressure starts to build in over the region.
Tonight will be another clear and quiet night. Low temperatures are looking very cold once again though as we expect teens and single digits once again.
Temperatures on Wednesday start to warm up nicely after another bone-chilling morning with temperatures in the teens. Highs are actually looking to climb slightly above average as we make it into the mid 40s. Dry conditions and mostly sunny skies are on tap for most of the day.
Look for dry weather to hang around through Thursday as well. Highs on Thursday will be back above average in the mid and upper 40s.
Our next chance for precipitation doesn’t come into play until the end of the week. Right now Friday looks to start out dry but turn much wetter by the afternoon and evening. Most spots are looking warm enough for just plain rain though some mixing will be possible through the Greenbrier Valley. Wintry mix will become more common across the entire area as we drop our temperatures on Friday night.
We look to stay active this weekend with a wintry mix continuing on into Saturday. A lot of melting will take place in most spots, which means that accumulations on Saturday aren’t looking very likely outside of the higher elevations, which could pick up a few inches. Accumulation is looking more likely area-wide late Saturday night into Sunday as more cold air rolls in and we drops those temperatures down. A few inches look possible for most locations and there’s a chance we may even see flurries continuing to fall into next 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.
