  • Cold winds return out of the northwest
  • Mountain snow showers linger in Tuesday
  • Spring warmth gradually returns

A northwest flow will bring some snow into the mountains and higher elevations to the west overnight into Tuesday. Most of it will stay contained into the mountains of West Virginia, but some of that may spillover into places west of the Blue Ridge. Any snow seen will be light and shouldn’t accumulate for most. Lows drop to the mid and upper 30s for most areas. However, a few areas across the Highlands may see low 30s. It’s a good idea to bring those plants indoors the next few nights.

Bring in the plants the next few nights as temperatures slip to the 30s.

Most of us will be completely dry on Tuesday and expect the rest of the work week to stay mostly dry! Highs on Tuesday will read in the 50s and low 60s with a cool wind. Overnight lows into Wednesday morning will fall into the upper 20s and 30s. A Freeze Watch is in effect for parts of our area for Wednesday morning.

Freeze/frost likely, especially Wednesday morning.

Nice warming will occur for us starting on Wednesday with highs back in the 60s. Temperatures eventually warm back up into the 70s and 80s by Thursday and into the weekend.

Temperatures soar into the 80s by the weekend.
