THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy for the rest of the afternoon and a very chilly day. Highs only in the low to mid 40s. Still quite windy. A blustery and cold Spring day.

Winds calming with sunset and cooling very quickly. Overnight, expecting another widespread freeze with low temperatures once again in the upper 20s to low 30s across the area.

It will be much colder than average by the time we get to Thursday.

FRIDAY: A cool start to the day with temperatures rising into the 40s. A weak disturbance will swing through the region during the day today, which will bring a few more clouds, but otherwise we will see a fair amount of sunshine mixed in.

Afternoon highs will be back into the mid 50s for our West Virginia locations, around 60 for the Valley. With lighter wind, that will feel quite nice compared to the previous couple of days. A pleasant afternoon. Mainly clear and cool for the evening with temperatures dropping into the 40s after sunset. Overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s, so not expecting a widespread freeze.

SATURDAY: Cool morning with temperatures in the 40s and some sunshine very early. Turning cloudy ahead of our next system. Still pleasant with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. and highs will likely be early afternoon before the rain starts. We have an earlier arrival time for the rain. Plan for showers to start after about noon. We’ll be fighting off a little dry air at first so for some spots it may not start to rain until after 1/2pm. so it will start to feel cool as temperatures drop a few degrees with showers in the afternoon. Showers continue for the evening and through at lease midnight. Tapering off overnight. Lows in the mid to upper 40s with low visibility and fog.

Our next system will bring rain showers to the area Saturday evening

SUNDAY: Starting with a few lingering showers across the Allegheny mountains by dry for the rest of the area. Cool to start in the 50s with clouds.

Decreasing clouds today behind a passing cold front. Highs in the upper 50s to low 60s but it will be windy for the afternoon making it feel cool. Overnight will turn chilly as temperatures will dip into the mid and upper 30s. Expect widespread frost Sunday night.

MONDAY: High pressure will start to dominate our weather for the beginning part of this week, and with that high sliding off the coast for several days, temperatures will start to soar. A cool morning to start as temperatures rise into the 40s. Lots of sunshine today with highs in the mid to upper 60s for our West Virginia locations. For the Valley highs will be right around 70. A very nice afternoon! Lows tonight will be cool, right around 40.

TUESDAY: Morning temperatures will start out pleasantly cool as temperatures rise into the 50s. Plenty of sunshine again for today and much warmer. High temperatures this afternoon will reach the mid to upper 70s for the Potomac Highlands and around 80 for the Valley. Likely low Valleys in West Virginia around Petersburg and Moorefield into the low 80s. An incredible day to enjoy some time outside if you get the chance. A pretty mild night ahead with low temperatures in the low to mid 50s for much of the area.

WEDNESDAY: A mild morning with temperatures rising in the 60s. A mix of sun and clouds in store for the day and temperatures rising even higher! Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s! Typical low valleys across the Potomac Highlands (Petersburg and Moorefield area) in the mid 80s. These temperatures are well above average for this time of year, so be sure to take advantage of this very warm stretch!

A cold front looks to approach the area late Thursday dropping temperatures by the weekend.
