Weather Update: Changeable Day Wednesday, Then Wild Temperature Swings

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): Low pressure pushing across the region Wednesday will bring everything from rain and rainbows to graupel at the highest elevations.

Chief Meteorologist Chad Merrill has the latest:


RAIN/GRAUPEL ALERT: A shower or two is likely prior to 11 a.m., then we are guaranteed to have a few 10-minute showers, perhaps with a thunder rumble, separated by full sunshine. Be on alert for rainbows in the morning around daybreak and then especially in the evening before sunset! Western Pocahontas County will see a few graupel (soft snow pellets) showers on Wednesday thanks to the lower height of the freezing point in the atmosphere!

RAINBOW ALERT: Look in the western horizon between 6-8 a.m. and the eastern horizon between 7:30-8:30 p.m. for a possible rainbow on Wednesday.

SEVERE WEATHER SIGNAL EMERGING: A strong signal has developed in the teleconnection patterns for a push of heat and humidity next week (June 3-6) followed by a cool blast to conclude the work week (June 8). A strong cold front has a likelihood to produce another round of severe thunderstorms between June 5-8.

TEMPERATURE TRENDS: Temperatures will continue to slowly cool through Thursday and then warm significantly by early next week. The coolest morning will be Friday with low 40s (frost in the deeper valleys of Pocahontas and Randolph counties) and then get ready for the humidity to return late this weekend! Sunday through Wednesday will be warm and humid yet again.
