As a cold front departs our area to the east this evening, cold high pressure will begin to take control of our weather pattern. Expect temperatures to drop quickly tonight, especially after the sun goes down. Temperatures tonight will eventually bottom out in the teens and 20s for most. We look to stay windy at times, with gusts still occasionally over 20mph into early Friday. Eventually, winds will subside by Friday afteroon/evening. Wind chills tonight and into early tomorrow will dip into the single digits for some, especially across the high terrain. Bundle up!
We'll otherwise keep the clouds around, and light rain/snow will change over to light snow showers this evening. Spotty light snow will continue into early Friday across our western facing slopes, but accumulations look little to none across most of the area. An inch or so could still fall at high elevations above 3500 ft, especially across Western Greenbrier and Pocahontas counties.
BE CAREFUL ON THE ROADS! With temps well below freezing, minor snow and BLACK ICE due to frozen rain-water will be possible tonight and even through our Valentine's Day. Temperatures Friday afternoon will only top off in the upper 20s/low 30s. Wind chills throughout the first part of the day may struggle to make it above the teens. Friday night will feature calmer winds, but still frigid temps in the teens.
Sunny and seasonable weather finally looks to make a comeback for most of the weekend. Besides the chance for a stray rain/snow showers Sunday evening, highs should be in the 40s, lows should be in the upper 20s/low 30s, and we look overall quiet both days. A chance for rain and snow looks to return by Tuesday-Wednesday of next week. Stay tuned!
