Weather Blog

Behind a passing cold front that pushed through early Saturday, winds will continue to be quite gusty at times with colder air continuing to move in.

After many places reached highs in the 60s Friday, Saturday’s highs will be confined to the 50s and 40s despite ample sunshine. Wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph will remain possible through the rest of Saturday afternoon but will continue to weaken. Tonight, winds will be light out of the northwest. Overnight, temperatures will drop to below freezing across most of the region, into the 20s to around 30 degrees.

Another cold front will approach the region Sunday. A few rain showers will be possible Sunday afternoon for areas west of I-81. The rain may mix with some snow in some of the higher elevations north of I-64, mainly west-facing slopes in the Highlands.

Sunday night into Monday morning, upslope snow showers for the west-facing slopes of Pocahontas and Greenbrier Counties will bring additional snow to those areas. By Monday morning, some areas along the west-facing slopes of Greenbrier and Pocahontas Counties may see snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches.

Winds will increase Sunday into Monday with gusts as high as 25 to 35 mph across the region possible. Higher elevations will likely see gusts at times over 35 mph.

Monday will be a windy and chilly day as highs will generally be in the 40s to around 50 degrees across most of the area.

Less wind and milder temperatures are forecast for Tuesday. Highs return to what one can typically expect for mid-November. Look for highs in the mountains to be in the 50s and lower 60s across the Piedmont.
