Fleeting Bitter Cold Blast Arrival Soon; Extended Outlook Into Early Dec.

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): A cold front will kick up the winds, bring flurries, the coldest weather of the season so far and aches and pains with a pressure adjustment.

The cold front is pushing across the Upper Midwest this afternoon.
The pressure will continue to drop this evening and then rapidly rise overnight following the frontal passage. Those who suffer from arthritis will feel the pressure change through Monday afternoon.

TONIGHT: A few showers will accompany the front as it pushes through between Midnight and 3 a.m. Monday. Wind gusts will reach 25-30 mph and temperatures will drop into the 20s with wind chills in the upper teens, except upper single digits above 4,000 feet in Pocahontas County. A few snow showers are expected early Monday, leaving a dusting on the highest ridges across the entire region. An inch of snow accumulation is likely in northern Pocahontas County.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with flurries, except occasional snow showers in the western Greenbrier Valley and Pocahontas County. No additional accumulation, except Pocahontas County where another inch of accumulation is expected, bringing snowfall totals to around 2 inches. Temperatures will remain steady in the upper 20s with wind chills in the upper teens (single digits in Pocahontas County).

TUESDAY: Early sustained wind of 15 mph and gusts to 35 mph will produce wind chills of 4-8 degrees, except below zero-degree wind chills in Pocahontas County. Wind Chill Advisories will likely be issued at least for Pocahontas County. The weather will be dry, except flurries in Pocahontas County. The balance of the daylight will be partly sunny with wind gusts to 35 mph, which will lead to sporadic power outages. High temperatures will reach 32 degrees, with low 20s in Pocahontas County. Wind chills will reach the low 20s.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: A pattern change will bring a significant warming trend with rain late Friday. There is a heightened brush fire risk Thursday with warmer than average temperatures, low humidity and a breezy southwest wind.

LONG-TERM TREND: A strong positive phase of the East Pacific Oscillation will allow the transition to much warmer than average temperatures bleed into December’s first week. A moisture-logged system will bring rain late Sunday to early Tuesday. Transient blasts of near to below average temperatures will be found in the wake of cold front for 2-3 days afterwards (Dec 6-9).
