First Weather Alert – Alert day for the return of cold air

There will be snow storms, and it will be colder tomorrow morning.

Updated: 2 hours ago

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Any early sunshine this morning will soon return, with snowflakes and raindrops returning to the Tri-State around midday, scattered throughout the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will struggle into the lower 40s, with gusty wind chills making it feel more like the upper 20s and lower 30s. If we had a “normal” period from February to March, this cold spell would not be so noticeable. This is because we had so many encounters with the 70s (and even 80 degrees last week) that this made this very uncomfortable. Likewise, many trees and shrubs have flowered very early, attracted by the persistent warm air, and will now be completely vulnerable tonight. The flakes are expected to dissipate into the mountains, the skies will clear, and temperatures will drop into the 20s Tuesday morning. This would be a freeze if the growing season was officially active, but tell that to all the plants that popped/came out too early. Expect trouble for magnolias, pear trees, and any other fruit trees that have already begun to flower. The first weather alert day after the morning drive will end tomorrow, with sunshine and a southerly breeze now helping to push us into around 50 degrees in the afternoon.
