... A strong cold front crosses tonight. Much colder Sunday. High pressure early next week. Cold front Tuesday night. High pressure again late week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/... As of 750 PM Saturday...
Overall, winds gusts continue to be in the 30-40 mph range. Did get a gust to 47mph at KW22, so opted to expand wind advisory a bit into Barbour, Taylor and Upshur counties. Also added the remainder of Webster and Randolph.
As of 255 PM Saturday...
A strong cold front will push through the region overnight. Models still showing a strong low level jet near the cold front, so still concerned with wind gusts along the front. Will need to monitor this situation very closely, as a wind advisory may still be needed.
Behind the cold front late tonight, models showing good lift for a brief period. Looks like the higher elevations of the mountains could get a quick inch or two of snow. Should see a lull in snow during the morning hours, but as an impulse goes through in the late afternoon hours, models showing good moisture depth, cold air advection, and good upslope over northeastern WV. Will increase pops accordingly.
SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/... As of 330 PM Saturday...
The aforementioned weak impulse will be moving into the mountains to start the period and enhances upslope snow through roughly 06Z Monday. Deep moisture up through around 700 MB and favorable dendritic growth indicate a burst of snow with additional accumulations across higher terrain on the order of 1-2 inches, of course favoring areas above roughly 2500 ft.
Beyond 06Z Monday, low level moisture is largely lost or continues to wane as the upper level trough moves off-shore. High pressure will build in from the southwest clearing us out for the day Monday. High pressure shifts toward the east and puts us under southwesterly, WAA flow bumping temperatures up considerably on Tuesday.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 400 PM Saturday...
Upper level ridging will yield to height falls with a potential cut-off low across the southern states. This would place the Mid-Ohio Valley/Central Appalachia between a weak, moisture- starved northern stream wave across the upper Great Lakes region and a deeply amplified trough extending down through the eastern CONUS. Warm, moist advection up through the Piedmont and the potential for coastal cyclogenesis suggests the potential for upslope rainshowers along the Eastern slopes. It would be aided by the northern stream cold front.
In spite of model disagreement during the middle of the week, there is consistent signal for another potent system and cold front coming through during the weekend.
