Period of dry weather ahead. Winds look to pick up again Wednesday night.
There may be a good deal of cloud cover in West Virginia trying to push over the Appalachian Range as we go through the day and into the night but the overall theme will be drying. There we some impressive totals from the snow event that marked the beginning of the meteorological winter. For the most part, those that could be measured were on our western periphery. The west facing slopes of the Alleghany Highlands were able to squeeze out the most snow with some locations getting about a half a foot. The New River Valley region did provide us with some measurable snow, but overall there were flakes flying, but melting as they hit the ground.
There is going to be a bit of a breezy situation for the next couple of days, but nothing worthy of an advisory. The winds will be coming from the west-northwest and should be in the 10 – 15 mph range at best. Another shot of snow is possible in the Greenbrier and Pocahontas county mountains on Wednesday, but much shorter duration of the snow machine and therefore much less accumulating snow. Still a bit slick.
As for the rest of the viewing area, we should be on the dry and chilly side. Temperatures will be near our normal highs each day, in the low 50s, and lows overnight should also be near normal, in the low 30s. Not much in the way of clouds until Friday as high pressure sets up for a bit. The next chance for rain will not be until early next week.
Enjoy the seasonable temps as well as your inflatable decorations (since winds will be relaxing a bit), but keep an eye on them Wednesday night as the winds are expected to return for another round of windy weather from Noon Wednesday until early Thursday. May see a bit of snow in Pocahontas county again Wednesday night.
