Warmer today with highs in the low/mid 80s. Warm air will stick around
through this week as highs reach 80s each day! But scatterd rain
showers & thunderstorms will keep the forecast unsettled through the
first half of this week. Wild weather will ramp up this evening,
bringing several rounds of rain & storms. Repeated downpours could
trigger flash flooding problems across the mountain state, especially
in our northern counties, north of RT 50. Strong winds and hail are
also possible overnight inside the yellow risk zone. Showers and
storms will linger into the overnight & Tuesday morning.

Here's the scoop on the snowfall forecast...Low pressure shooting
northward from the Delmarva into northern New England Sunday will
combine with a Clipper type system timed for Monday to bring
unseasonably cold temps, rain showers, breezy conditions and what is
sure to be the last snowfall of the season Sunday night into
Monday/early Tuesday. Could see sustained winds overnight to 20-25
MPH, especially along our ridgetops. Tonight, temps falling to just
below freezing in the mountains & just above freezing in the lowlands
will bring a changeover to a wet snow with nightfall. Initially, warm
soils will keep the wet snow from sticking. But Some minor
accumulations of an inch or two are expected across the lowlands.
8-10" of snow are expected in the mountains of WV & MD into Tuesday as
the departing low pressure off the Eastern Seaboard will leave the
Clipper system to produce more of an upslope air flow in the

Be prepared for possible power outages during this time as wet snow
and strong winds may bring down trees and power lines. A Winter Storm
Watch is in effect for several counties in our area. Be sure to stay
tuned to local TV/radio to keep up to date on changing conditions.
Will post updates here as new info comes in!

Strong winds out ahead of this cold front have triggered a wind

Cooler and breezy today with a slight chance for an afternoon rain shower. Highs reach the mid 50s today. Temps falling into the low 30s/upper 20s tonight will bring a changeover to snow, especially in our northern mountains. Measurable accumulation is not expected. But freeze watches & warnings are in effect for nearly the entire state for tonight through Wednesday morning. Any vegetation left unprotected will be damaged or killed.

The chilly nights will continue through Wednesday and Thursday nights. Low pressure will bring warmer temps and the chance for rain into the weekend.
