There are some gusty winds throughout the region, but not all that robust. The winds are enough to act as a drying mechanism to assist us in getting any residual water off the roads. This is significant because any left over water may freeze up and produce what is called Black Ice.

The temperatures across Western Virginia will be below freezing tonight so there will be a chance for a few icy spots.

Friday will be a lovely day with partly to mostly sunny skies and temps about where we should be for this time of year. Winds will be relaxing a bit so I expect a typical late January day.

Saturday gives us a bit warmer weather as the mercury hits the middle to upper 50s in the thermometer. Sunny skies start the day, but clouds arrive late in the afternoon ahead of a rainy Sunday.

Sunday will be our next chance for some widespread rain.
