Soggy weather continues: rain and wind to persist through midweek

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A slow moving area of low pressure over our area will continue to keep the rain around over the next several days. Tonight will be mainly cloudy, cool, and foggy in spots with rounds of scattered showers. Lows tonight will fall into the upper mid to upper 40s for most.

Tomorrow looks much like today, with clouds and rounds of showers. This time however, the rain does look a bit heavier. Another 1-2" of rain could easily fall on top of the wet soil through Wednesday, and heavy downpours could still possibly cause flooding issues, especially into late week. Along with the rain, WIND will be another weather threat. Gusts at times over the next few days will be over 25PH, which could cause downed trees/power loss due to the soggy ground.

A WIND ADVISORY is in effect for northwest Pocahontas, western Greenbrier, southwest Fayette, southwest Raleigh, Summers, Mercer and Tazewell counties until 8 AM Wednesday.

Rounds of rain will continue into Thursday, with heavier downpours still possible across our area, which could lead to further high water issues at the end of the week. We'll start to warm up again by Memorial Day Weekend, and rain/t-storms should at least become "spotty" by Saturday and Sunday, allowing for more breaks of sun and highs in the 70s.
