Our weather stays dry through the weekend, other than a few snow showers possible across the higher elevations of the Highlands. Any accumulations will be light and generally along those west-facing slopes of Pocahontas and Greenbrier Counties.
Sun-filled skies will be the general rule moving into the rest of your Saturday afternoon and for Sunday, sunrise to sunset.
Tonight will be cold with lows in the low and mid 30s for most locales.
A storm system with a trailing cold front will sweep across the eastern U.S. tomorrow. Any chance for snow showers tonight should remain to our north. However, if you’ll be traveling northward out of our forecast region, you can anticipate increasing snow chances. The bulk of the snow falling with this system tonight will be over Pennsylvania and New York.
Closer to home, we should manage highs a few degrees warmer, compared to Saturday, for Sunday afternoon before the cold air moves in behind the front. In general, highs in the mountains will be in the mid to upper 40s with highs as warm as the mid 50s working east of the Parkway.
Winds will become gusty with the passage of the front. Gusts over 20 mph will be possible at times Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon.
Sunday night will be breezy and colder with lows back down into the 20s.
Upslope snow showers for the western slopes of Greenbrier and Pocahontas Counties look more likely Sunday night into Monday with some light accumulation possible in those spots.
For most of Southwest Virginia, it will be 5 to 10 degrees colder Monday. Winds will make it feel several degrees colder than the actual air temperature.
It will be much milder for the rest of the week! By midweek, highs climb into the mid 50s (west) to around 60 degrees (east). The forecast continues to warm from there! Expect mid 60s in many locations for highs later in the week!
Enjoy your weekend!
