Warming Trend This Week…What About The Weekend and Beyond?

Oak Hill, WV (WOAY-TV): Stubborn low pressure to the north will continue to send waves of chilly temperatures our way, with a widespread frost expected by midweek.

Chief Meteorologist Chad Merrill’s forecast:

TONIGHT: The clouds will start to clear in time for sunset, so we should see red colors in the western sky! Overnight will be clear with temperatures in the 30s.

MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: Temperatures will warm to 60 degrees by midweek. Clear skies, light wind and dew points near 30 degrees will ensure a widespread frost occurs Wednesday morning. Expect Frost Advisories to be issued Tuesday afternoon for the early Wednesday frost with temperatures dropping to 30 degrees.

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: Your heating bill will get a break each afternoon as temperatures warm to the mid 60s by Thursday and lower 70s on Friday afternoon. Fabulous Football Friday will be DRY with temperatures dropping into the upper 50s.

WEEKEND into Monday: A cold front will trigger rain Saturday followed by gusty winds 25-35 mph and falling temperatures. Periodic sprinkles are likely Sunday and Monday with occasional flurries/snow showers that will trigger very light accumulation in northern Pocahontas County. The blustery trend will continue into Tuesday.

NEXT WEEK: Much below-average temperatures are likely with a hard freeze Tuesday morning that will end the growing season for the remainder of the region (already ended in the high elevations of Pocahontas County). The upper-level blocking pattern in Canada will relax by late week. This will allow temperatures to make leaps and strides to near average by Thursday and Friday before a cold front triggers a few showers Friday afternoon.

BRIDGE DAY: Early clouds will break for sunshine around daybreak and then puffy cumulus will develop after 10 a.m. The wind will be northwest at 10-20 mph with gusts 25-30 mph during the late morning to mid-afternoon. Temperatures early in the day will be near 40 degrees with highs around 55 degrees.
