Pinpoint Weather: Chilly pattern ending, summer pattern developing

Weather

Our region is still on the cool side this afternoon for the middle of May as the temperatures will be in the low to middle 60s.  Normal for this time of year should be the middle 70s.  There will be a decent mix of clouds and clear skies moving forward through the day and into the night with little to no precipitation expected.  Look for the clouds to increase in our southern tier counties as moisture moves in from Tennessee and North Carolina late tonight and Wednesday. Northern counties of Summers, Monroe, Greenbrier, Alleghany, Rockbridge and Bath will all experience some frost in places overnight, so an Advisory is in place tonight for that event. Pocahontas and Highland counties will be seeing colder air and a Freeze Warning is in place tonight for those areas. Bring in the dangling plants from the porch and cover the ones you can if you are in or near the highlighted counties tonight.

Expect one more day of below normal temperatures in the Commonwealth before we start to experience above normal conditions as we head into the weekend.  There will be some spotty showers from time to time that will be forming in the afternoon and early evening on Thursday, but mainly over the mountains and should only be light rain.

Our spring pattern this season has taken a hit and we have been dealing will below normal temperatures since for the past several days. The next several days the region is slated to be impacted by more summer-like conditions.  Highs will be in the upper 70s on Thursday then we have a run of 80s over the weekend and into next week.  There will be some spotty showers and isolated thunderstorms associated with the run of warm weather, but as of now the threat for severe weather seems to be low.  Any thunderstorm is dangerous though, so we will caution you if you plan to go camping or hiking this weekend to keep an eye on the weather patterns where you are and make sure to bring along your mobile device with our WFXR weather app downloaded.

Stay Safe and healthy.
