Increasing Clouds Tonight...Showers & Storms Saturday...Morning Showers Sunday

    A storm system moving into the region will bring clouds and showers as we make our way through the upcoming weekend. There could be some storms that could cause localized flooding before warmer conditions return for next week.  Tonight, the front will make for increasing clouds across the region. It will stay dry but unlike last night the cloud cover will keep the temperature above freezing at 37 degrees.
    Saturday will be cloudy and will start off dry. By the late morning into the early afternoon showers and storms will develop. Some of the storms could become strong to severe along with the potential for some localized flooding. The high temperature will be 59 degrees. Sunday will start out with rain showers that will give way to mostly cloudy skies along with dry conditions by the afternoon. The high temperature will cool slightly to 59 degrees. Rainfall over the weekend could be heavy at times, with totals in the 1-2" range.
    Monday will be mostly cloudy with a few lingering showers as low pressure remains over the northeastern U.S. The high temperature will drop again to 58 degrees. Tuesday will be mostly sunny and dry with high pressure making its way back in across the region. The high temperature will warm to 65 degrees.
    Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and at this point looks to be dry with a low pressure system passing to the south. Computer models are at odds with this system so the forecast could change over the next few days, so stay tuned to this website as we get closer to the time frame. The high temperature will be 70 degrees if it does decide to stay dry. Thursday will also be mostly cloudy and dry, with that forecast also in question for the time being. The high temperature will make it to 73 if dry conditions prevail. Friday looks to be partly cloudy and dry with high pressure building in over the region. The high temperature will warm to 76 degrees.
    The next weekend will start off with high pressure strengthening over the region for partly cloudy skies along with dry conditions on Saturday. The high temperature will warm to 79 degrees. High pressure will get even stronger on Sunday for partly cloudy skies along with dry conditions. The high temperature will warm again to 81 degrees. Monday will be partly cloudy and dry with high pressure still in control over the region. The high temperature will cool slightly to 80 degrees.

    A quick look back at yesterday's forecast shows that skies stayed clear overnight with cold temperatures as forecast. The overnight low temperature fell to 32 degrees which came in one degree warmer than the forecast low temperature of 31 degrees. Friday was partly cloudy and dry as forecast. The high temperature in Charleston was 61 degrees which came in one degree cooler than the forecast high temperature of 62 degrees. Huntington's high temperature was also 61 degrees. Neither city reported any precipitation.

    Tonight: An approaching storm system will make for increasing clouds but dry conditions through the night. The overnight low temperature will be 37 degrees.

    Saturday: Skies will be cloudy with showers and storms that will move in during the late morning hours and will take us through the night. Some of the storms could become strong to severe with heavy rainfall that could make for the threat of localized flooding. The high temperature will be 60 degrees.

    Tuesday: High pressure will move back into the region for mostly sunny skies along with dry conditions. The high temperature will warm to 65 degrees.

    Wednesday: A low pressure system tracking to the south will make for mostly cloudy skies along with what appears to be dry conditions for the time being. If the low tracks farther north we could see some showers but at this time it looks to be dry with a high temperature of 70 degrees.

    Thursday: The low pressure system will make for mostly cloudy skies and what appears to be another dry day, at least for now. The high temperature will climb to 73 degrees if there are no rain showers.

    Friday: High pressure will make its way back into the region for partly cloudy skies along with dry conditions. The high temperature will warm to 76 degrees.

    One Final Note: Today's low temperature in Charleston dropped to 32 degrees. That made for the coldest night since April 5th when the mercury fell to 29 degrees. That so far has been the only other time this month the temperature has fallen to the freezing level!
