Skies turn partly cloudy this evening. Most areas will remain dry, but some rain showers are likely in the mountains along the VA/WV border, including some snow showers toward the ski resorts of West Virginia. Lows slip to the 40s by sunrise Saturday.

Several cold fronts swing through over the weekend. Each one will bring some clouds, breezy conditions, along with reinforce the cold air for the weekend. Temperatures run well below average through early next week.
NEAR-FREEZING NIGHTS: Highs will mainly read in the upper 40s to low 50s with lows dipping into the upper 20s to low 30s. If you have any potted or hanging plants outside, you’ll probably want to bring them indoors Saturday and Sunday nights. Our overnight lows drop close to freezing.
