Good Thursday evening! And it's a wet go for us tonight. A cold front is approaching and will stall out over southern West Virginia through early Saturday. Tonight and tomorrow will bring all rain. Temperatures will fall into the low 50s tonight and by Friday morning they will continue to fall.
Friday afternoon brings temperatures in the mid 40s and by Friday evening we will see them dip near that freezing mark. Wintry mix is likely Friday night into Saturday morning.
The cold front begins to pull away on Saturday morning and by Saturday afternoon we get a little break from the moisture. But not before picking up more than an inch of rain in many locations, higher amounts to the west. Temperatures will be cold, right near the freezing mark.
Our second storm develops along the frontal boundary and that will bring a wintry mix back into the picture for Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Temperatures rise a bit by Sunday afternoon into the low 40s, but freezing rain will be possible through much of the day due to a colder layer of air above the earth's surface. Some significant icing is possible, though we'll know more by Friday afternoon. Keep in mind that IF significant icing occurs there will be power outages, and dangerous roads. We'll keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
We will see that switch over to all rain by Monday morning. The rain continues through Monday night and temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 40s.
Tuesday brings back the cold air and temperatures will only be in the mid 20s to low 30s across the region. We are likely to see all snow during the morning hours, but it clears up quickly by the afternoon.
We are finally clear and dry by Wednesday, however temperatures will be frigid in the mid to upper 20s with overnight lows in the teens.
