Cold Work Week Start, Quite Changeable Day Expected Monday

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): A cold front is setting the stage for a colder Monday, but sun, snow and even a rainbow are expected.

MONDAY: Daybreak will bring a few patches of deep blue sky mixed with dark stratocumulus clouds. Through the morning, patchy dark clouds will give way to 10-minute intervals of bright sunshine.

Between 5 p.m. Monday and 3 a.m. Tuesday, an upper trough will generate flurries to briefly moderate snow showers in spots that last 10 minutes. Enough snow will fall to whiten the grass, but likely not enough to measure. The exception….Western Pocahontas, western Greenbrier’s ridges above 3,000 feet and the highest elevations near Bluefield will see 1 inch of accumulation. Only above 3,000 feet will the snow create a few icy spots on secondary roads.

Not to be outdone, don’t be surprised to hear a thunder rumble given the cold air aloft. As if that wasn’t enough, in between snow showers you have a good chance to see a rainbow in the evening sky as the sun BRIEFLY returns between these showers! Capture the rainbow, if you see one, and send our way!

It will be brisk with gusts to 25 mph, so the low 40s dropping into the upper 30s in the snow showers will feel like the teens and 20s outside!

After a cloudy start Tuesday, we are guaranteed to see bright sun emerge in the afternoon and temperatures will warm several degrees over Monday’s readings!
