(WVVA) A Wind Advisory is in effect for Mercer, Summers, Monroe, Greenbrier, Tazewell, Bland, Wythe and Giles counties through 11:00am Friday. Winds could gust up to 50 mph, causing a few trees to come down due to the wet soil and some power outages.
Most of the heavy rain has moved east of our area, but Flood Warnings remain in effect for a few counties across our area through Thursday evening. Flooding is also expected along the New River on Friday south of the Bluestone Dam from Summers County to Giles County. Much cooler air will push into the region Thursday night with lows in the 40 to 45 degree range by Friday morning. We’ll also experience windy conditions through Friday morning. Skies will begin to clear some overnight, but a broad northwest flow will keep clouds along the western slopes of the mountains through early Friday.
Cool conditions will stick around this weekend with a few isolated showers possible Saturday. We’ll see a better chance of showers Sunday and Monday. Cool weather will persist into next week with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s and lows in the 40s.
