Pinpoint Weather: Chilly temperatures linger Sunday, warming trend ahead into next week

Happy Sunday!

We’ll have a blend of clouds and sunshine for today and while temperatures won’t be as cold as they were on Saturday, we’re still going to be below normal across the area.

Highs will reach into the 30s for most of us, though a few locations could top out into the lower 40s east of the Blue Ridge.

There could also be a few flurries or snow showers as we head into the mountains of Pocahontas, Greenbrier and Highland Counties.

Into Sunday night, temperatures will again drop well below freezing – into the upper teens and the mid 20s.

We’ll continue dealing with variably cloudy skies into both Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 30s in the mountains and into the 40s east of the Blue Ridge.

By Wednesday (Groundhog Day), we’ll have even more clouds in the picture ahead of a cold front that will be moving closer. Highs will range in the 30s and 40s in the mountains and into the lower 50s further east.

Rain showers become likely as we head into Thursday which will also be the warmest day of the week with highs in the 40s in the mountains and the 50s further east.

Showers could linger into Friday which could be a day that we see our high fairly early in the day as a cold front passes through which will allow temperatures to fall after the front passes. Highs should primarily top out in the 30s in the mountains and into the 40s to near 50 further east.

Then we dry out as we start next weekend with highs returning back below normal.

So, today will be a better day to be outside as winds will be less of a factor but it will still be cold, so grab a coat and enjoy the last day of the weekend!
