Weather Blender Blog: Cold Start to Week!

Posted: Updated:

The our weather headlines includes a good chunk of cold air that will move into West Virginia for the early and middle part of next week.  A cold front by week's end will bring rain and possible snow.

Our top graphic today shows the Euro model and the progress of cold air by Monday morning.  The really cold stuff is still to our north, but it will make progress south Tuesday and Wednesday.  For graphic two and three, these are precipitation outputs on first the NAM model, and then the Euro model.  As you can see, both are pretty dry.  With that, not expecting a lot of snow with this cold air.  I do think that we could have an occasional snow squall and flurries, and eastern mountains might be able to squeak out an inch of snow Sunday through early Tuesday as best.

Fourth graphic shows when I think it will be the coldest, before sunrise on Wednesday. Temperatures should be in the single digits to possible zero in mountain valley locations.   

But then, by Friday, we see a pretty quick warm up.  Our graphic is precipitation for Friday morning.  Another cold front, one that will be able to tap some Gulf of Mexico moisture, will spread rain back into the area.  Colder air behind the front should allow a changeover to snow by Friday afternoon into Saturday.  This should be our next best chance of seeing some snow.  So far models are agreeing with this solution.

Have a great weekend!  Get ready for the cold!
