Chance of Heavy Rain, Gusty Winds Today, More Rain Chances Over the Next Few Days!
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Yesterday was nice, with partly sunny skies and highs in the low-80s, due to south winds bringing stable conditions to WV. Today, however, will be different, as a cold front will bring rain into WV, some of which may bring dangerous conditions. This afternoon, scattered showers and storms push into NCWV. Some of these storms could contain heavy rain and gusty winds, which could cause serious problems.Some areas could see over 0.5 inches of rain by the time the system leaves. Therefore the Storm Prediction Center still has us under a Marginal Risk, i.e. isolated severe storms are possible. Make sure to have plans in place in case something happens, such as having a safe place to go or planning for rain on your commute. Most of these storms go away as we head into the late-evening hours. Barring the rain, skies will be mostly cloudy, with highs in the low-80s. Overnight, we’re left with patchy drizzle and fog, along with cloudy skies. Temperatures will be in the low-60s. Overall, expect a dreary night. Tomorrow afternoon will bring a few more showers and storms into WV, although they won’t be severe. Barring the rain, which ends in the evening hours, skies will be partly cloudy, with highs in the low-80s. In short, you may want an umbrella tomorrow, but we won’t see as much rain as today. Rain chances stick around for Friday and Saturday as well, so we will see some rain for the next few days. It’s not until we get to Sunday that the rain leaves, allowing more sunshine and warmer temperatures to come back. In short, today and the next few days will bring rain chances to WV.
