AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Charleston WV 333 AM EDT Sat Oct 16 2021

SYNOPSIS. A cold front brings showers and storms today. High pressure and cooler weather follow from Sunday through Wednesday. Another cold front arrives Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. As of 330 AM Saturday .

Showers ahead of a cold front continue to move through the middle of the CWA, while a line of showers and storms along the front has moved into our westernmost counties. Showers and storms will spread east into the area as the front treks through the CWA during the morning. There is still potential for a storm or two to become strong or severe this morning. Damaging winds are the main threat, though heavy downpours are also possible within any stronger storms.

Precipitation will taper off west to east behind the front, which is expected to complete its passage through the CWA by afternoon; however, a few showers could linger over the mountains for a few hours longer. Breezy conditions are also expected across the area for much of the day.

With a much cooler air mass settling in behind the front, today's high temperatures are expected to be a few degrees below normal -- in the mid 50s to 60s across the area. Tonight, temperatures remain slightly below normal with 40s in the lowlands, and the mountains dipping into the mid to upper 30s. At present, winds look to remain strong enough to prevent frost.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 225 AM Saturday .

A high pressure system will build in on Sunday, providing dry and cool weather. Although temperatures will reach the 30s in the mountains Sunday night, winds will prevent most of the region from seeing frost. The exception could be in the deeper valleys of southwestern Virginia where winds have a chance of decoupling late Sunday night.

By Monday night however, winds should relax enough for frost to be a possibility in the valleys in the northern mountains of West Virginia, depending on temperatures and dew points.

As the high shifts eastward on Tuesday, temperatures will moderate slightly with dry weather continuing.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 225 AM Saturday .

A high pressure system will continue to shift eastward on Wednesday, allowing for temperatures to continue to moderate slightly. Dry weather will also continue.

A cold front can then be expected on Thursday. Models vary with the placement of the upper low over Canada, which brings some timing differences for the front and even bigger differences in the amount of cold air behind the front for Friday.

AVIATION /07Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 125 AM Saturday .

Have included VCSH early in the period to account for showers moving through the area ahead of an approaching cold front. A line of showers and storms along the front is moving towards the area and is projected to reach PKB/HTS in the first couple of hours of the TAF period. Showers/storms will then spread east and ceilings will lower to MVFR/IFR as the front crosses through. Heavy rain may also lower visibilities to at least MVFR. The front is projected to exit by the afternoon, with ceilings improving by the end of the day. VFR is then expected for the remainder of the TAF period.

Southwest winds will increase ahead of the front, remaining strong but transitioning to the northwest once it passes through. Breezy conditions are expected to continue most of the day. Winds gradually relax overnight and remain westerly through the end of the period.

FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 06Z SUNDAY . FORECAST CONFIDENCE: Medium.

ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: Onset timing of showers/storms with the front may vary. Visibility in heavy downpours may be lower than forecast.
