Very Cold Tonight


A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Northwestern Pocahontas and Western Greenbrier counties from midnight until 10 AM Saturday.

Tonight will bring just a few lingering flurries. The big story this evening is that we get COLD. Temperatures drop into the low and mid teens. Winds will be out of the northwest at 10 to 15 MPH, so wind chill values will be in the single digits and even below zero in the high terrain. Bundle up and watch for a few icy patches.

Saturday we dry out and get another rare chance to breathe with minimal precipitation in the forecast. A good chance at some sun exists for the first half of the weekend too, but this will be later in the day. We could still hold on to some clouds during the first half of our day with a few lingering mountain flurries. We are really getting a good dose of colder air it looks like so most won’t even break the 30s for highs and overnight lows will drop back into the teens.

Sunday isn’t looking to bad either with mostly quiet weather still expected. We will likely see clouds begin to thicken up by the second half of the day, but any precipitation will hold off into Monday it looks like. Highs in the 40s are expected. Enjoy the break, because Monday brings rain and snow for some.

Monday, we see our next round of weather pop it’s head in. For now this looks like it will mainly be rain for most of us. Some mixing along the ridgeline and snow in the mountains will likely accompany this system during the daylight hours. A few scattered snow showers will remain possible in the evening once we cool off. At this point this does not look to be a major deal and luckily looks to be the last of the active weather for a few days. Highs will return to the low 40s.

Tuesday, we see most of us try to hit the mid and upper 40s. We spend the day drier with an area of high pressure trying to push it’s way in. This could lead to some additional sun which will be a nice treat for the day.

Wednesday we stay dry once again with high pressure holding on. We will see additional sunshine and temperatures make a run for the 50s! It will be a very nice change from the cold and wintry weather we have been seeing. We look to continue the dry and mild stretch into Thursday before our next storm signal arrives for the end of the week.

Thursday, there are some hints that another southern tracking storm supported by cold air from a high pressure parked off to the north is set to make it’s way through in the evening hours. We’re keeping chances low at the moment because there isn’t a whole lot of agreement with this system just yet, but it is on our radar.

A few chances for unsettled weather live on in the extended forecast, precipitation types to be determined as get a little closer to those last days of February and the first days of March. Temperatures at least look to be fairly close to average!
