Here we go! Things are beginning to change and we will take notice starting today. Temperatures will fall through the 40s during the day as rain continues to move into the region. Pockets of heavy rain will fall later on this evening until the early portions of the overnight hour. A quick 1.00” – 1.25” not out of the question before the precip moves out early tomorrow morning. Some wet snow could mix in north and west of town before the rain moves out of here by 7AM – 8AM. Saturday temperatures will fall once again during the day, however, they will fall through the 30s! Snow begins to move in from the SW during the morning hours on Sunday. Before the change to freezing rain and sleet, the snow could accumulate up to 1.5” east of the Blue Ridge Mountains and up to 3.00” in the Shenandoah Valley and across the eastern WV Panhandle. A changeover to freezing rain/sleet will occur in the afternoon hours and eventually that will change to plain rain. Still nailing down the details on the changeover in terms of time but we could see accumulating ice from the wintry mix before temperatures start to go up during the overnight hours Sunday into Monday. By 7AM Monday morning, all locations should be warm enough to receive plain rain. Temperatures drop through the middle of next week.
