Hot to Start the Work Week

WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:

Father's Day started off with a few scattered showers and thundershowers which made way for sunshine and warm temperatures in the upper 80s to around 90. Things will cool off a little bit Sunday evening. Temperatures will slide into the upper 60s to start your Monday morning commute with a few clouds to start off your work week.

Monday is going to be a hot one. Lots of sunshine and a few clouds will rise temperatures quickly to the low 80s by lunchtime and the low 90s for the heat of the afternoon. Temperatures will be flirting with record highs but will likely stay just below. Feels like temperatures are going to be in the mid-to-upper 90s, thanks to excess moisture being pumped in from the southwest giving us dewpoints in the upper 60s to around 70. Shower chances look slim across north-central West Virginia to start the work week, but you still can't rule out a stray raindrop or two, mainly in the higher elevations.

However, that is going to change for your Tuesday. All the moisture still in the air will provide the spark need for some showers and storms late in the day. Things will be starting off Tuesday morning nice and sunny, but things will warm up with increasing clouds throughout the lunch hour and afternoon. Showers and storms look to be in north-central West Virginia from around dinnertime into the overnight. Areas of heavy rain are possible as well as some thunder, lightning, and gusty winds. There looks to be a break in the action come Wednesday morning, with more showers and thundershowers expected Wednesday afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 80s.

Thursday looks to be mainly dry and sunny with a few clouds. Rain chances return Friday into the weekend as temperatures warm back up a little bit. Have the umbrella handy just in case, but things are looking hot and sunny for most of the following weekend, so it'll be perfect to go outside and explore!
