Welcome to the start of the weekend!
Morning clouds will lessen by early-afternoon giving us Mostly Sunny skies. High temperatures will climb into the 60s in the mountains – upper 60s to near 70 east of the Blue Ridge.
Breezy conditions will be possible as well, mainly into the mountain locations.
Into Saturday night, another batch of clouds can be expected as temperatures range from the mid 40s to near 50 across the region. A stray shower can’t be ruled out in the western-most locations including Summers, Mercer and Tazewell Counties.
Sunday’s weather looks to be a bit milder than Saturday’s with some passing clouds in the area. Highs are expected into the upper 60s to the lower 70s in the mountains and into the mid 70s further east.
Monday is expected to start out Partly Cloudy but an approaching stronger cold front will cloud things up during the afternoon with widely-scattered showers and thunderstorms – some of which could be strong to severe as the Storm Prediction Center has our region under a SLIGHT risk (scale 2 of 5) of seeing severe storms. Damaging winds and even an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out as we head into the afternoon and into the evening hours. Monday will certainly be a day to be weather aware.
High temperatures, on Monday, will compare to Sunday’s.
On Tuesday, we’ll keep some clouds in the picture with breezy and much cooler conditions. Highs may struggle to get out of the 50s in the mountains. Lower to mid 60s can be expected elsewhere.
Wednesday’s weather looks dry, for now with temperatures returning to near-normal levels in the low and middle 60s in the mountains and mid to upper 60s elsewhere.
Thursday and Friday are both looking unsettled with showers possible each day with highs in the 50s and 60s.
