Joseph Williams’ Morning Forecast | January 24, 2022

Some light rain and snow tonight, and colder, drier conditions for the last full week of January!
Updated: 17 hours ago

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Yesterday brought some light snow to NCWV, and tonight will bring mixed precipitation, as a weak low-pressure system pushes into NCWV. This afternoon, skies will be mostly cloudy, with light southerly winds. The light winds cause temperatures to rise into the seasonably cool low-30s. Temperatures then rise into the mid-30s during the late-evening hours, as the center of an Alberta Clipper moves north of us. They then drop into the low-30s by Tuesday morning. We see light precipitation coming in after 8 PM, with snow in the northern counties and mountains and rain/snow mix and rain in the lowlands. This light rain and snow lasts until Tuesday morning. Not much is expected, with 0.1″ of rain and 1″ of snow in the lowlands at most, and up to 2″ to 3″ of snow in the mountains. Still, that could lead to slick spots on some roads, so as always, make sure to take that into account when traveling. Overall, expect a calm afternoon and rain and snow tonight. Tomorrow afternoon, skies will be mostly cloudy, thanks to leftover moisture. Light northwesterly winds cool us down into the upper-20s, so it will be cool outside. We will stay dry, however, as a high-pressure system builds northwest of us. This high-pressure system will drag in cold, dry air from Canada over the next few days. This means that we expect sunny skies, but temperatures will only reach the low-20s at most, with lows in the single-digits. We could even reach lower in the mountains at times. That means you’ll want a heavy coat. Towards the end of the workweek, another cold front comes in and brings snow into WV during the daytime. However, there are some uncertainties with this system, so we will be watching it carefully. In short, expect some light rain and snow tonight, drier conditions tomorrow, and sunny but cold conditions for the last full week of January.
