After a chilly start we have a nice day on tap today! High pressure
over the Tennessee Valley brings sunny & dry conditions to the
Mountain State. Temperatures not nearly as cold as this past weekend.
Highs top out near 40! But more unsettled weather will arrive early
Tuesday morning in the form of light snow showers. Daytime warming
will turn that precip over to rain during the day Tuesday.
Temperatures will again fall just short of 40 Tuesday. Then we'll see
a changeover to snow as temperatures fall into the low 30s Tuesday
night. Accumulations will be light. However, we may see some isolated
freezing rain early Wednesday morning. So watch for icy roadways,
especially in the higher elevations. Strong southerly air flow aloft
will bring more spring-like conditions late Wednesday into Thursday.
Temps are expected to reach the upper 40s Wednesday & low 50s
Thursday! But that next weather disturbance will arrive Thursday
afternoon to bring mainly rain to the area into Friday. Next weekend
is lookin' dry and mild for now.

A wind chill advisory is in effect for those eastern mountain counties
in light blue until noon today. High pressure beginning to dominate
the area will clear out any leftover mountain snow flurries later
today. High temps are expected to only reach the upper 20s today.
Then another chilly night is on tap with lows in the teens. Monday
will be warmer with sunshine and temps creeping back to near 40.
Another system will bring some wintry precip early Tuesday. Air flow
aloft will be from more of a southerly direction, allowing daytime
highs to reach the low to mid 40s. Some light snow accumulations are
expected Tuesday night. Then another low pressure system will sweep
across the area Thursday into Friday.

Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the lowlands. Winter
Storm warning in effect in the mountain counties until Sunday
morning...That arctic cold front will continue to deliver an
additional 2-4 inches of new snowfall in the lowlands and 4-8 inches
in the mountains over the next 24 hours. High temps today will only
reach the upper 20s. Winds will become quite blustery overnight as
snow showers begin to wind down in the lowlands. Lows in the teens
coupled with strong gusty winds will bring the wind chill to zero
degrees tonight. Snow flurries will wrap up in the mountains during
the day on Sunday. High pressure will build over to area leaving calm
but still very cold conditions during the day on Sunday. Monday will
be dry and warmer with highs near 40. The next weather disturbance
will arrive early Tuesday to bring mainly snow showers to our area.
Wednesday and Thursday will be more comfortable with mainly sunny, dry
conditions & temps in the low to mid 40s. Next Friday looks cloudy and
rainy. Have a great weekend!

Arctic cold front brings rain/snow mix this afternoon changing to all
snow late this evening. NWS has issued Winter Weather
Advisories/Winter Storm Watches for parts of our forecast area through
Sunday morning. Accumulations of 4-8", gusty winds and wind chill
values into single digits are in store for Friday night/Saturday. Snow
showers will wrap up Saturday night. But tempertaures will stay below
freezing over the entire weekend. We'll dry out and warm up a bit on
Monday. Then another round of winter arrives by Tuesday.

Thursday, February 9, 2012

We have a chilly night on tap across the Mountain State with lows
settling down to 24 degrees. Friday will be mainly cloudy with highs
in the low 40s. Then a weak cold front will sweep across the area
Friday afternoon/evening. Light rain or a rain/snow mix will arrive
with the leading edge of the cold front Friday afternoon. Then quick
change over to snow is expected with sundown. Lows in the mid 20s will
allow for some light snow accumulations up to an inch or two by
Saturday morning. Another front, with colder air & deeper moisture
will arrive quick on the heels of Friday's front during the day
Saturday. That cold air behind this front will bury temps in the teens
by Saturday night. Strong gusty winds to 20+MPH will create blowing
snow, adding to any potentially hazardous conditions. Northwest winds
Saturday will allow for better upslope snow production, especially in
the mountains & east-facing slopes. Widespread snow showers Saturday &
Saturday night will bring 5-7" of new snow across much of northern &
central West Virginia. The higher elevations in the eastern mountains
& Garrett County can expect 8 or 9 " of new by Sunday morning.

Sunday will dry out under high pressure & partly sunny skies. But
temperatures will struggle to reach the upper 20s during the day. Lows
fall into the upper teens Sunday night. Monday looks dry and warmer
with temps near 40. Then another disturbance will bring more winter
weather Tuesday. Check back for more weekend winter weather updates.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Old man winter gives us all he can muster but it ain't much! Low
pressure system now pressing eastward will produce a rain/snow mix
today. But only a dusting or up to an1.5" of snow will fall in the
lowlands of West Virginia. While 2-4" are possible in the higher
elevations in the eastern mountains. The NWS has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory in effect from now until 10PM tonight for the eastern
Panhandle, parts of PA, MD and VA. Timing of this snowfall will keep
much of the white stuff occuring in the AM. But some leftover upslope
snow showers are still possible for the mountains into this evening.
High temperatures today will reach the low 40s. Clearing skies tonight
will allow lows to sink down into the low 20s.

Thursday and Frday will dry mainly sunny and dry thanks to high
pressure over the region. Highs will stay in the low to mid 40s. Lows
will still be quite chilly with temps in the low to mid 20s. then an
actic cold front will bring another dose of winter to the area. this
will include temps in the teens and more measurable snowfall.

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

We'll keep mainly sunny skies along with dry and calm conditions
today. Highs will reach the upper 40s. But low pressure advancing into
our region will bring increasing clouds this evening and overnight.
Expect a rain/snow mix across the lowlands by Wednesday morning as
that low pressure continues its eastward progression. Cold air behind
that front will bring a changeover to all snow Wednesday with upslope
mountain snow flurries being the primary precip type into Wednesday
afternoon. Minimal accumulation is expected during this time. A dry
and somewhat mild forecast is in store for Thursday and Friday. But a
colder airmass will bring more winter-like temperatures along with the
threat for a wintry mix of precip over the coming weekend.
