THE FLOOD WARNING FOR CENTRAL MERCER COUNTY has now been extended until 7AM Tuesday morning.
The FLOOD WARNING for Western Greenbrier county has been extended until 7 AM Tuesday morning due to the flooding along the Meadow River! River levels in all areas will gradually drop through early Tuesday.
A FLOOD WARNING WILL CONTINUE FOR: the Greenbrier River at Alderson, Greenbrier, Summers, Mercer, Wyoming, Fayette, McDowell, Raleigh, Pocahontas, and Buchanan counties overnight tonight.
The heavy rain has moved out of our area, but rivers, creeks. and streams will remain high as runoff will still be causing flooding over the next several hours. As we head into the overnight hours, water levels should eventually recede, especially once we get past midnight.
We will be COLD AND WINDY overnight however, as Canadian high pressure moves into our area from the northwest. Winds will be occasionally gusty, over 25 MPH at times!
With the wet soil, downed trees/limbs and power loss will remain possible overnight. BLACK ICE thanks to frozen rainwater will pose another hazard into early Tuesday as temps fall into the teens to mid 20s overnight. Stay safe!
A WIND ADVISORY is in effect western Greenbrier and northwest Pocahontas counties until early Tuesday morning.
Much quieter weather is on tap for Tuesday, and most of the rest of this week is looking rather tranquil, just on the cooler side. We'll see abundant sunshine and high temps in the 40s.
A system looks to just brush us to the south on Wednesday, ,but as of now it looks like the moisture will be very limited across our area. We should stay mainly dry with perhaps just a few more clouds, especially south of HWY 460.
Late week is not looking too shabby....make sure to tune in tonight to WVVA News at 5,6,10 (CW) and 11 PM for the latest full forecast!
