Joseph Williams’ Morning Forecast | September 29, 2022
Mild, partly sunny conditions as the month ends, and rain chances to start October!
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Yesterday, a weak disturbance brought clouds and isolated rain chances to our region. Before leaving in the evening. Today will be much nicer, as a a high-pressure system will push in and bring dry, stable air to West Virginia. So this afternoon, skies will be partly clear and sunny, with most of the clouds being upper-level clouds. Winds will come from the north-northeast at 5-10 mph, and temperatures will reach the low-to-mid-60s, warmer than the past few days. Overnight, more clouds will push in, leading to partly cloudy skies. Winds will be light, and temperatures will drop into the mid-40s. Tomorrow afternoon, skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, with more clouds pushing in during the evening hours. Winds will come from the northeast at 5-10 mph, and temperatures in the upper-60s in some areas. Overnight into Saturday, the remnants of Hurricane Ian (which is still lingering in central Florida as of this morning, September 29) will lift into West Virginia, bringing showers and even a few downpours into the area and leading to a messy transition to October. This rain will continue into Sunday and perhaps even Monday. However, because of their interactions with a high-pressure system in Canada, most of the rain will fall in southern West Virginia. Still, while rainfall totals are uncertain this far out, some areas in North-Central West Virginia will see an inch or more of rain between Saturday and Monday morning. Thereafter, a high-pressure system pushes in from the north and dries us out, and it’s not until later in the week that a cold front brings more rain chances to our region. All the while, temperatures will be in the mid-60s. In short, today and tomorrow will end September with partly sunny skies and nice conditions, and this weekend will be soggy and cloudy.
