Wet and Messy Weather Continues


Good Morning Everyone! As of right now we will be stuck with the rain through the afternoon. Luckily temperatures for most of us are in the lower 40's so it is mainly rain however Greenbrier and Pocahontas counties as well as some higher elevations in Nicholas county are seeing some mixing.  We will see a slight break this evening, however another low will pass to our south and this one and is looking more and more like a threat with each model run.

At this point I feel like we cannot rule out accumulating snow in southern counties. Hardest hit with accumulations of over 6 inches would be Tazewell, Mercer, Summers and Monroe counties. Everyone else should not worry too much as worst case scenario would only bring a couple of inches. This will all take place Thursday morning through Thursday evening and we will begin to finally dry things out

Things are about to cool off drastically. We get our first shot of cool air on Friday with highs only getting into the lower 30's. Low temperatures at night are going to dip down below twenty degrees. As we start off next week our temperatures at night could drop as low as the single digits.

Extended Forecast:

Today: Mostly cloudy with showers throughout the day. Highs in the lower to mid 40's.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy and mainly dry. Lows in the upper 20's

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy and messy with rain, sleet and snow. Some accumulations expected in southern counties. Highs in the mid 30's and lows in the lower 20's.

Friday: Partly cloudy with highs in the lower 30's and lows in the upper teens.

Saturday: Partly sunny with highs in the mid 40's and lows in the upper teens.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of snow flurries. Highs in the lower 30's and lows in the lower 20's.

Monday: Partly cloudy with snow showers. Highs in the lower 30's and lows in the upper teens.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy and freezing with highs near 20 and lows in the single digits.
