Weather Update: Cold Blast Will Be Followed by Record Warmth

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): Low pressure will bring a swing back to winter early this weekend with a winter wonderland above 2,500 feet.

Chief Meteorologist Chad Merrill has the latest:

SNOW: Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., the trees and grass will get caked with a light accumulation above 2,500 feet. Below is our snowfall forecast. Otherwise, expect spits of rain mixed with snow around midday, but only a shaded spot could see a brief coating before melting before 3 p.m.

FULL MOON: The February full moon is set to rise Saturday evening, with the best viewing for it after the clouds clear after 11 p.m. Saturday night.

FROST: A thick, hard frost is likely Sunday before 9 a.m. thanks to a moist ground, clear sky (after 11 p.m. Saturday), light wind and widespread temperatures in the 20s.

RECORD HEAT: The warmest temperatures of the next seven days will occur Tuesday and Wednesday, with record highs likely to be surpassed.

LEAP DAY: A front will trigger a shower or storm late Wednesday and then high pressure guarantees a dry, sunny and mild Leap Day!

First week in March: There are strong signals for above-average temperatures across the region.
