  • Shower/storm chances winding down
  • Breezy and cooler overnight
  • Dry, windy and chilly Friday

The cold front that brought the rain and storms is moving through the region overnight. Most of the rain should be exiting with the front, although a few isolated storms are still possible through around sunset.

Heading into the night, we should see drier conditions. A few sprinkles of rain and even some light snow is possible mainly for areas near I-77 and into the mountains of West Virginia.

FRIDAY

Don’t expect the winds to calm after the rain stops. We are staying windy all day Friday with gusts again ranging from 25-40 MPH. We are cooler for Friday with highs in the 50s. Snow showers will linger toward the ski areas and perhaps a few flakes blowing into the Highlands.

Winds remain gusty into Friday, reaching 20-35 mph.

The week starts sunny and warm with highs in the upper 60s. Another front will enter the area bringing rain Tuesday into Wednesday along with warming temperatures. Highs climb to the mid 70s by Wednesday.

We’ll slowly begin to cool back down toward the end of the week. In fact, the following weekend may end up being below normal.
