Warmer Temperatures on the Way

Current Conditions:
We enjoyed a beautiful spring day today with the official high reaching 67 degrees.  The main cause for the mostly clear conditions today was surface high pressure which is centered over West Virginia. For the rest of tonight, winds will remain out of the south at 6 mph under mostly clear skies.

Forecast Discussion:
Surface low pressure located over Quebec Canada will push off to the east tonight into tomorrow causing our winds to be from the south.  Tomorrow winds will increase ahead of an approaching cold front.  The cold front will then stall Thursday night into Friday morning and become stationary.  Due to the position of the front, showers will be possible during the day on Friday and Friday night.  Winds will remain out of the south allowing us to have warmer temperatures into the weekend.  The front will remain to the north Friday night into Saturday.  Sunday night into Monday our next system will be moving in.

Thursday: Low of 41 to start the day and a high of 74 under mostly clear skies.  Winds out of the south at 10 mph becoming 15-20 mph in the afternoon.  Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.  No chance of precipitation.    

Friday: Low of 51 and a high of 69 under mostly cloudy skies. Winds will be out of the SW at 10 mph.  Rain will be moving into the area in the morning.  Thunderstorms are possible throughout the day.  Chance of precipitation is 40%.  

Saturday:  Low of 51 and a high of 77 under mostly sunny skies.  Winds will be out of the south at 5 mph.  No chance of precipitation.   

Sunday:  Low of 54 and a high of 73 under mostly sunny skies becoming partly cloudy.
