Transient Chill Exits, Warm & Windy Weekend Ahead

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): An upper low will trigger more rain with episodes of clear skies between showers through early Saturday.

Chief Meteorologist Chad Merrill has the latest:

TEMPERATURES: Following a chilly Friday, we will rebound all the way close to 80 degrees by Sunday and stay in this pattern until a cold front knocks our temperatures down by a large margin on Friday.

RAIN: Another quarter to half inch of rain will keep the standing water in spots on our roadways intact through tonight. Thereafter, expect a slight risk for a late day shower or storm Sunday and then we are smooth sailing until showers and storms return Thursday.

Note: The mudslide that closed part of Route 60 in Smithers has been cleaned up and the road is reopened.

WIND: Constant wind of 20 mph and gusts 25-35 mph will continue until 10-11 p.m. tonight, then winds will drop off a bit. The strongest gusts Saturday will occur in the afternoon, topping out at 30-35 mph. Ultimately, Wind Advisories will likely be hoisted for Sunday afternoon when gusts hit 35-50 mph (see map above).
