WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
WIND ADVISORY: Will remain in effect from 8:00 AM Monday until 2:00 AM Tuesday for Webster County. Peak southeast wind gusts in the 45-50 MPH range may blow down tree limbs, resulting in possible power outages. Loose objects may also be blown around. Motorists should use additional caution, especially driving high profile vehicles. The strongest gusts will occur from late-morning into the late-afternoon Monday.
Stable, dry high pressure fades off towards the New England coastline early Monday. With it, fair & dry weather also bows out to increasing clouds and developing rain showers Monday afternoon/evening.
A weak upper level trough pattern develops along an evolving low pressure system, rotating around the Central Appalachians Monday. Look for thicker/lower clouds Monday afternoon with a few disorganized rain showers during the evening drive. Temperatures still manage mostly upper 60s and low 70s with the heat of the day. Cooler conditions will be noticed in the eastern mountains with highs only in the low to mid 50s in our favorite cool spots above 3000 feet.
Gusty southeast winds will develop along the approaching weather disturbance. Peak winds Monday afternoon/evening may result in minor tree damage and a few scattered power outages. We'll also notice more and more clouds rolling in with sunset and overnight. Scattered rain showers will likely threaten through the overnight with mild lows through the 40s.
Mainly cloudy, cooler conditions stick with us Tuesday into Wednesday with off/on lighter showers throughout each day. Without the extra sunshine, temperatures will be notably cooler, upper 50s and low 60s at best.
While some locations will begin to clear out with increasing sunshine along the departing low pressure disturbance Thursday, some of our mountain counties will keep lingering cloudiness and stubborn drizzle into Thursday morning. Conditions will remain rather cool, 30s by sunrise Thursday. However, with increasing sunshine, highs manage low 60s.
Friday will be mainly sunny and dry as high pressure briefly regains control of our area with highs in the mid 60s.
Tranquil weather lingers into the first part of the weekend before another fast-moving weather impulse drops in from the Great Lakes with cooler temperatures, developing rain showers and a few low-impact snow flurries for the mountains.
