Wet Today, Snow Later This Week WV 3-11-13

After a lovely weekend with sunshine and warmer temps, the upcoming week sees the return of unsettled weather. A cold front is approaching the region and will move through tonight. Cloud cover will persist today and light showers are possible this afternoon. However, the heavier rain arrives this evening and will continue overnight.

Light showers will linger into tomorrow morning but should taper off by midday. High temps tomorrow will be seasonable and intervals of sunshine will appear in the afternoon.

The colder air behind the front doesn’t arrive until tomorrow night. Northwest flow, upper level disturbances, and low level moisture will accompany the burst of cold air. What does all of this mean? Scattered snow showers are expected beginning tomorrow night and will last through Wednesday night. Accumulations look to be minimal (a few inches at best) and will mostly be relegated to the usual favored locations.

High pressure will calm things down on Thursday but temperatures will remain on the chilly side.

The end of the work week looks pretty decent as temperatures moderate to near/slightly below normal levels.

The weekend sees a clipper system create the chance for more unsettled weather.  Confidence is pretty low at this point though in what will happen.
