Oak Hill, WV (WOAY-TV): High pressure will yield warmer than average temperatures once again Friday before a front brings rain, wind and transition to fall.
Chief Meteorologist Chad Merrill’s forecast:
TONIGHT INTO MIDDAY FRIDAY: The sky will be clear tonight with increasing mid and high level clouds Thursday. Highs will reach the 70s. Ahead of a front, expect a couple of showers Friday afternoon and for Friday night football games. Drenching downpours are NOT expected. Wind gusts will reach 15-20 mph Thursday afternoon and 20-25 mph Friday afternoon and evening.
WEEKEND: The cold front will come through between 4-9 a.m. Saturday. Clouds will hold intact, the northwest breeze will increase and there will be occasional light showers. Elevations above 3,500 feet in the evening will see snow flurries!
NEXT WEEK: Frost is likely Monday and Tuesday morning, but a hard freeze is still not expected. Nonetheless, be prepared to cover flowers with a blanket and/or bring them inside to avoid damage. Cooler than average temperatures are expected and the foliage is expected to really start to shine.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK THROUGH BRIDGE DAY (OCT 21): Following another early weekend storm Oct 13-14, another front will likely move through midweek before Bridge Day. We are expecting partly cloudy skies and near average temperatures (Lows in the 40s and Highs in the 60s) on Bridge Day. A northwest breeze will kick up just a smidgeon during the afternoon.
