...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 4PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 9AM EDT MONDAY...
A few storms are in WV right now, but should not affect our region as they head NE. Areas north and east of Lewisburg, WV could hear a rumble of thunder or some heavier rain through 10:30 this morning. Expect some gusty breezes today as high pressure tries to build in from the west. Skies are partly to mostly sunny here in Snowville and throughout the CWA. Drier pockets of air, resulting in clearing skies, are trying to appear in far SW Virginia and a dry slot is working its way up from the gulf coast through Georgia and may provide us with mostly sunny skies later this afternoon. Expecting no precipitation today, but the higher elevations of WV, especially the WV/VA border counties could see some snow flurries or snow showers as we progress through the evening hours. 850mb temps will be below 0°C from 8PM this evenign until after daybreak Monday morning. We will most likely reach our high temperature for the day this morning as cold air will soon be wrapping around yesterday's rain-maker.
Monday looks to be nice, although it will start off chilly. Expect windy conditions Monday morning on a NW flow. Winds will quickly turn out of the SW and bring warming temperatures Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Upper-level divergence may provide the area with partly cloudy skies Monday and Tuesday as well. With only the expection to a few mountain snow flurries into WV during the morning, most areas should stay dry. Temperatures will range from 52 to 58 degrees around the region.
Winds should decrease as we work our way into Tuesday with increasing clouds ahead of our next weather system to our southwest. The mountains will stay cooler than other parts of the CWA. Expect the NRV and higher elevations to be in the upper 50s to lower 60s on Tuesday with possible mid to upper 60s for southside. Our area may see the mid 60s if we can provide enough sunshine. The next cold front should start to push into our region on Wednesday.
