Oak Hill, WV (WOAY-TV): Following a week of warming temperatures, Bridge Day will bridge the gap between a departing system and incoming transient chilly blast.
FRIDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Occasional showers are expected from before dawn on Friday into the late evening (for high school football games). A quarter to half inch is expected to fall, which is needed.
SATURDAY: The morning will start with dry weather and a cloud deck at 2,500 feet that will rise to 3,500 feet by 11 a.m. The sun will be able to penetrate the clouds after 10 a.m.
A southwest wind at 5-10 mph for the first jumpers at 9 a.m. will transition to a northwest wind between 11 a.m. and Noon and increase to 10-15 mph with gusts to 25 mph. A northwest wind is most favorable for jumpers because it tends to push them away from the bridge after being catapulted in the air.
The approach of a weak disturbance from Ohio will bring increasing cloudiness from Noon-3 p.m. with a sprinkle or two after 2 p.m. No upside risk for moderate or heavy rain.
Temperatures: Morning low of 40 degrees will warm to 55 degrees by 1 p.m. and then slowly drop to 52 degrees at 3 p.m. Wind chills in the middle 30s prior to 10 a.m.
