A dry start for our Wednesday, but things will take a sharp turn as we head into the afternoon. Rain showers will be widespread with heavy downpours in the mix.
A Flash Flood Watch will begin at 4 PM this evening and last into 10 AM Thursday for Buchanan, McDowell, Wyoming, Raleigh, Fayette and Pocahontas counties.
Our highs will be situated in the 40s, with not much of a dip overnight. Winds will increase in speed throughout today. During the afternoon gusts will hit around 25 MPH. Into tomorrow morning, the highest gusts could exceed 45 MPH.
Along with the windy conditions, heavy pockets of rain will be in store for Thursday morning. Not expecting severe storms, but with the high winds and the saturated soil power outages along with downed trees may become issues.
Highs tomorrow will be set in the morning in the 50s, but temperatures will slowly trickle down throughout the course of the day. Lows Thursday night will be in the lower 20s and teens. Behind the cold front, Friday's temperatures will have a hard time making it in the middle-upper 20s with lows Friday night hitting the teens. Moisture will still be leftover Thursday night into Friday AM. We will see a transition from rain to light snow. Little to no accumulation is likely.
We dry things out Friday afternoon and keep up with the dry trend throughout the majority of the weekend even into Monday. Rain showers look to build back in Tuesday. Highs over the weekend will be seasonable, but the warm spell strikes again Monday with highs hitting into the 50s.
