  • Clear and cold tonight

Warmer and quieter conditions continue for the next few days. Expect mostly sunny conditions through Wednesday. High temperatures return to the 50s for most hometowns each afternoon. Some lower 60s are likely on Wednesday. Low temperatures moderate back into the 20s and 30s.

Confidence is increasing that most, if not all, of Thanksgiving Day will be dry throughout our hometowns! A few showers are possible very late in the evening, but most should remain dry until the overnight hours. Scattered showers are likely all day Black Friday. May be best to do that Black Friday shopping online!

Models (still...) are not in agreement for the timing of precipitation Thursday and Friday. For now though, we are thinking most of the rain will be present on Friday rather than Thanksgiving!

A cool start will be with us on Thanksgiving morning as lows will read in the upper 20s and low 30s. By the afternoon, high temperatures will be in the 50s with partly cloudy skies.

Looks like we will see a mostly dry day for our Thanksgiving. Not the case for Black Friday...

Again, models are having a hard time pinpointing the exact timing of this system. We could hold onto some lingering moisture into Saturday & Sunday with upslope snow showers possible in the mountains of West Virginia. For now, we believe most will be dry throughout the weekend, but continue to monitor the forecast.

Expect pleasant temperatures Saturday with highs in the lower 50s. Temperatures even look like they could warm back to near 60 Sunday afternoon for a few of us. One downside is the winds will pick back up again.
