Moisture returns to the Mountain State today as Tropical Storm
Alberto, 150 miles off the coast of Myrtle Beach combines with low
pressure spreading eastward tonight through the first half of the work
week. Alberto will move northeastward, grazing the Outer Banks today

showers will be tossed as far west as our Eastern Panhandle tonight &

vicinity later on Wednesday. We'll be left with mainly sunny and dry
conditions towards the end of the work week. A slow warming trend is
expected through this week with highs reaching the mid & upper 80s by
the weekend.

We trend towards cooler and drier weather today with highs only
reaching 70. Although a few lingering showers are still possible in
the east this morning and some light rain is expected over northern WV
this evening and overnight. New rainfall will not be nearly what we've
had over the past several days. High pressure building overhead will
help us finish the work week dry with mild daytime temps and chilly
nights. Saturday will be a few degrees warmer with mainly sunny skies.
more unsettled weather returns for Sunday.
