The wonderful weather continues on Wednesday

Tonight features mostly clear skies with high pressure still the dominant weather maker in southern West Virginia. With a light breeze, the thick, patchy fog will be something to see again, especially after midnight and in the morning. Low temperatures will be in the upper 40s, so it’s another cold night!

Wednesday starts out cold, so kids will need coats as they head out the door, but once the morning fog dissipates, we’ll see plenty of sunshine and a nice warmth in the mid-70s for highs. It will be a beautiful day of weather across the region and a perfect evening to enjoy dinner outside with warm temperatures and dry air.

Thursday features continuing trends from Wednesday, with slightly warmer temperatures as highs jump into the mid to upper 70s. A little more moisture in the atmosphere, coupled with weaker troughs could lead to isolated rain showers over the mountains in the afternoon. We’re talking about one or two showers at most over the mountains – or a few “Doppler freckles” if you will. Most will remain dry under partly sunny skies.

Friday will continue to be partly sunny skies with one or two isolated showers threatening over the mountain counties again in the afternoon. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s. Once again, we will be mostly dry but there will be some rain with weak lows over the mountain counties. Temperatures will be a little cooler as clouds move in late in the day as the coastal system approaches.

Saturday brings plenty of clouds to the area as a coastal low pressure system moves north across the mid-Atlantic coast. This could bring a few rain showers to the area, but most of us will likely only experience a sprinkle or two. Our eastern mountainous areas like Pocahontas County will likely see better chances for light rain. Although there won’t be any significant rain due to this system, temperatures will be kept low with abundant clouds around, with highs only in the upper 60s.

Sunday trends drier as high pressure returns to our north. This would allow temperatures to rebound back into the mid-70s.

Monday brings more sunshine to the area ahead of the next storm system, which looks to move in on Tuesday. High temperatures on Monday will be warmer in the mid to upper 70s, as a southerly breeze and a moderate air mass make their way into the area.

Tuesday looks to bring a warm front to the area ahead of the next low pressure system, which will bring with it a chance of rain and perhaps a rumble of thunder or two. Surrounding clouds and rain will keep temperatures near average in the lower to middle 70s.

Looking ahead, our only current tropical system is the Nigel System, which should not be a concern for the United States as temperatures appear to be near a bit above normal overall. Our average high temperature for this time of year is 74 degrees, and high temperatures generally in the mid to upper 70s look to be common over the next couple of weeks. Conditions look a bit wetter as we head into this weekend and beyond, as a series of systems look to create a slightly unstable pattern. This is associated with a blocking pattern known as an omega block, which can bring a series of weak storm systems through the region. We’ll be watching that closely! For any storms that pop up in your area, don’t forget you can download the StormTracker 59 app for free with interactive radar ready at the push of a button! I love using it when I go hiking and running!
