Unsettled Weather Ahead… Much Needed Rain Events Coming… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23


Good Wednesday afternoon! After a cold start to the day, conditions this afternoon really turned out nice. A breezy south wind developing is in the process of pumping moisture, clouds and increasing rain chances by Thursday. Expect a dry night tonight, with a low in the lower to middle 40s.

Showers increase on Thursday, but I don’t expect an all day rain. Rain amounts will be light, with most areas picking up at or under 1/4th of an inch. Expect a mild day, with a high in the low to middle 60s.

Groundhog Day will be cooler, much like yesterday’s weather. Look for an increase in sunshine after early morning clouds, with a high in the upper 40s to near 50. Clouds increase on Saturday, with a few showers late in the day. The best chance of rain will arrive Saturday night, then depart Sunday late morning or early afternoon. Drier air will take over by Sunday afternoon and evening from west to east. Expect highs in the 50s on Saturday, with low to mid 50s for highs on Sunday and Monday.

We’ll notice a bit of a warm-up on Tuesday and Wednesday, with a high in the lower 60s. A few showers will return by Tuesday evening and Tuesday night.
