Pinpoint Weather: Windy and colder Monday, then turning milder for rest of the week

Weather Blog

Parts of the region are seeing an increase in clouds as a cold front is working through the area this Sunday afternoon. Behind the front, temperatures will turn sharply colder, accompanied by gusty winds.

Despite more clouds this afternoon, temperatures in most locales are a bit seasonable and mild. That will change later tonight and Monday.

Winds will increase behind the front with gusts over 20 mph possible. In the higher terrain, gusts over 25 to 30 mph will be possible. Winds stay gusty through Monday afternoon.

Tonight, temperatures will drop into the 20s for lows for just about everyone. With the winds factored in, it is likely to feel as cold as the teens at times by early Monday. Wind chills generally in the mid to low 20s (east) to teens (west) can be expected. Bundle up!

In addition, a few upslope snow showers are forecast for the western slopes of Pocahontas and Greenbrier Counties where some light accumulations may occur tonight through early Monday.

Monday afternoon highs will only manage the mid to upper 40s east of the Parkway and just 30s to lower 40s west of the Parkway. Factor in the effects of the wind and it will feel several degrees colder than the thermometer says at times through the day.

After our coldest day of the week on Monday, temperatures moderate fairly quickly. Tuesday, highs will be around 10 degrees warmer. The warming trend continues from there with highs in the low to mid 60s by Thursday!
