Monday Evening Video Forecast Update


A cold front has moved through the region and drier air will continue to move in overnight. There could be some patchy freezing drizzle, drizzle and flurries tonight before the northwest upslope flow diminishes. A freezing rain advisory is in effect for the higher elevations of Pocahontas County through 3:00am.

A weak system will pass just to our south on Tuesday and will bring us a chance of a few rain showers and snow showers. Areas north of Interstate 64 could have enough cold air in place to see mainly snow showers. There won't be a lot of moisture associated with this system, so rain and snow totals will be light (less than 1 inch at higher elevations north of I-64).

An arctic cold front will move through Wednesday afternoon and evening. A few snow showers and flurries are possible Wednesday night and Thursday morning (light accumulations likely 1 inch or less along western slopes). High temperatures on Thursday will struggle to get out of the lower twenties with overnight lows in the single digits Thursday night and Friday morning.

Dangerously cold wind chills are possible during this time as strong northwest winds are expected. With Arctic air in place moisture will begin moving Northeast toward our area by Friday night and Saturday. A period of snow, sleet and freezing rain as possible Friday night and Saturday morning before changing over to plain rain during the day on Saturday. It is too early to determine how much ice/snow we will see before precipitation changes to rain, but it doesn't appear to be a major winter storm at this time. There could be some slippery travel early Saturday before high temperatures climb into the middle and upper forties by afternoon. Rain showers are expected to continue through Sunday but will change to light snow showers Sunday night or early Monday before tapering off.
