This morning, we are waking up to a few snow flurries across the viewing area. These snow flurries combined with temperatures well below freezing are causing for some slick roads, as some roads are becoming quite snow covered. Expect snow flurries to continue through the early morning hours, before drying out by the late morning.
Temperatures are starting in the upper single digits and teens. With the strong northwesterly breeze, it feels a lot colder than what it actually is. Wind chills are in the low single digits, and below zero degrees in some spots. Wind chills are going to stay around the single digits and teens as we go into your Monday afternoon, as strong northwest winds continue to usher in much colder air.
A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Western Greenbrier and Western Pocahontas counties until 10 AM for dangerous wind chill factors in the higher terrain.
Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 20s today, as most spots will stay in the mid/upper 20s. Very few spots will get into the low 30s this afternoon, even with gradual clearing and mostly sunny skies. Make sure to cover up your skin throughout the day, and bundle up as much as possible. It is also a good time to limit outdoor exposure for long periods of time. Especially if you are outside at any M.L.K events today. Bring pets inside during this cold span as well.
Tonight, temperatures will drop into the teens once again, with a few spots falling into the upper single digits. Wind chills are going to become quite low again overnight, with wind chill factors again in the low single digits, and below zero degrees in some spots. Winds will calm down throughout Monday afternoon. Expect more clouds to build in tonight as well.
Tuesday will bring mostly sunny skies, but conditions will stay chilly. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s/lower 30s for Tuesday, with a light northerly breeze continuing to usher in colder air.
By Wednesday, we begin to become more mild, with temperatures getting into the mid/upper 40s. Milder conditions will continue through at least Friday and Saturday. We look to stay dry for both Wednesday and Thursday, before rain begins to push back into the viewing area by Friday evening. Stay tuned!
