Joseph Williams’ Morning Forecast | September 22, 2022
A partly cloudy, cool start to fall!
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Yesterday started out sunny and hot, with highs in the upper-80s, before a cold front pushed in from the northwest last night and brought scattered showers and thunderstorms into West Virginia, resulting in half an inch of rain in some areas. We’ll see a few more showers this morning, so expect some light rain on your commute. Then by the afternoon, any leftover rain is gone, and skies will be partly sunny, with scattered cloud cover. Winds will come from the northwest at 10-15 mph, and temperatures will reach the upper-60s in some areas. Overnight, skies will be mostly clear, as a high-pressure system pushes in from the northwest. Winds will be light, and the combination of clear skies and cooler air from Canada results in lows in the mid-40s. Tomorrow afternoon, skies will be mostly clear, with only a few clouds pushing in during the evening. Winds will be light, and temperatures will reach the mid-60s at most, over ten degrees cooler-than-average for late-September. Saturday will be slightly warmer, with highs in the upper-60s, and combined with partly sunny skies, Saturday will be nice. Then on Sunday, scattered showers, and even a few downpours, will push in and bring some rain into our region. A few more showers are possible on Monday and maybe even on Tuesday, although there is uncertainty in some of the models. After Tuesday, however, a high-pressure system should bring partly sunny skies for the rest of the week. All the while, temperatures will stay in the mid-to-upper-60s, so the last week of September will be cool and mostly quiet. In short, the first few days of fall will feel like the season, and skies will be partly clear for the most part, barring some rain early next week.
