Dry weather on tap through Friday morning; storms late Friday into weekend
After severe weather and flooding took the stage over several days of the past week, calm conditions continued today and will continue through Friday morning. Clouds will increase throughout the day on Friday, especially in the afternoon with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s with dew points in the 60s. This could produce showers and a few strong or severe storms across north-central West Virginia beginning Friday afternoon, but the bulk of the storms will be late Friday overnight into Saturday morning. Heavy rain and strong, damaging wind gusts look to be the main threats once again. This active pattern will likely continue into Saturday and Sunday, but things are looking less severe as of now with isolated showers and storms mixed in with warmth and sunshine possible for the weekend. A few pop-up showers or storms are in the cards Monday and Tuesday as moisture decreases and temperatures cool into the middle of next week.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear and quiet. Low: 51. Calm wind.
FRIDAY: Partly sunny with increasing clouds late with PM showers and possible strong thunderstorms and showers overnight into Saturday. High: 85. Low: 65.
