Temperatures will continue to warm to well above average ahead of a late week cold front.
It’s a mild and somewhat breezy morning on this Wednesday. Early morning temperatures will generally be in the 50s and 60s, which is quite comfortable for this time of year.
High pressure at the surface and aloft continues to dictate our weather. Highs will be similar to yesterday, warming as much as the mid and upper 80s in many locations despite a few more clouds this afternoon. It will also be somewhat breezy this afternoon.
An upper level disturbance may trigger a few showers/storms west of our region that may hold together long enough to make it into our westernmost counties, mainly the Highlands. There’s a marginal risk for isolated severe storms across western Pocahontas and Greenbrier Counties for late today. Any storm that becomes severe will mainly pose threats of damaging winds and hail.
Tomorrow, you can expect more of the same in regards to temperatures. However, a slight chance for showers will exist mainly for the mountains by late in the day. Increasing shower chances are anticipated Thursday night and into Friday.
Friday will be cooler with more clouds, showers, and cooler air moving in behind a passing cold front.
Saturday looks sunny with pleasant afternoon highs around 70 degrees.
