Warmer and wetter weather 'whys' for the end of this week.

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - The flow of the atmosphere is generally from the north with the approach of high pressure on Monday. As this moves east, the counter-clockwise flow of low pressure approaching will turn the winds to (from) the south. In addition, wind speeds will also pick up in the lower levels of the atmosphere. This will increase the amount of warm air and moisture that gets transported north.

With the boundary between warmer and cooler air in the area for a number of days, this will increase the time that rain can fall. In addition, areas of low pressure riding along this boundary will also increase rain at times.

Rain for late Wednesday into late Friday could be enough for flooding. This is a consequence of the total rainfall potential and rain from the weekend still in the ground.
