Warm Might Be An Understatement For Our Late Week Weather!!!!
Good Tuesday Morning Friends!
It is still a bit frosty in many neighborhoods across the region with temperatures very elevation dependent this morning. So, be prepared to warm up the car in most places, even if the thermometer might say temperatures around the freezing mark!
High pressure has positioned itself to our east. South to southwest winds begin to pump in much warmer air during the day today. We keep the sunshine around for the next two days and temperatures will jump due to this. By Wednesday, most folks will see low to mid 50s!
A storm system will get organized to our south and west this afternoon and move across the Gulf States for the next couple of days. It will move to our northwest Thursday and Friday, bringing an opportunity for some scattered showers and a couple rumbles of thunder.
The only thing this storm will do is bring even warmer air into the region. By Saturday, forecasted highs at this point are into the mid 60s....which would be the warmest temperatures we have seen since December 9th, when we reached 62 in Beckley.
Today: Mostly sunny and very comfortable. Highs: 44-52. Winds: S-SW 7-14 mph.
Tonight: Mostly clear and mild. Lows: 30-40. Winds: Light SW.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Highs: 46-55.
Thursday: Partly cloudy with some showers. Highs: 50-60.
Friday: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a couple rumbles of thunder. Highs: 55-63.
Saturday: Mostly sunny and hot! Highs: 62-72.
