It’s windy today! Leaves are skittering across the lawn while bare tree branches dance in the strong swirling winds that are affecting much of western Virginia. The sun is bright but the temperature is 56 degrees so it feels much cooler in the stiff breezes.
The “s” word is in the forecast tonight for the mountains west of us so maybe we will see white along the ridges in the morning.
WHSV TV-3’s forecast says the conditions will continue through today:
Winds continue to stay strong. The Valley will see plenty of sunshine, but clouds will linger over the western mountains as cooler air filters into the area. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 50s, near 60° for many areas.
Late Friday night into Saturday morning, light snow showers will be possible over the far western mountains as winds will stay out of the northwest. The air will be cold enough to support the flurries and small accumulations will be possible. Don’t expect the snow to reach the Valley, but a few blowing flurries may be seen in West Virginia.
Saturday will be the coldest day this week with high temperatures in the upper 40s and it will still be fairly breezy. Expect mostly sunny skies in store for the end of the weekend, conditions will warm up through the beginning of next week.
We’re getting closer to the snowy time of year for my corner of Augusta County with only 5.5 weeks away from the first day of winter. Enjoy your blustery day!
