Weekend Weather & Events
It’s time to turn our clocks back this weekend as we “fall back” and get an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night. Weather-wise, Mother Nature aims to please for the most part as long as you don’t mind the frosty morning chill.
Thursday’s rains stayed mainly on the plains of Ohio and the foothills of the Bluegrass. Showers did manage to sneak into southern West Virginia, but a dry air wall prevented those rains from moving bodily through the Mountain State.
Friday will dawn under a grey overcast with sprinkley rains moving away early on points south. The arrival of a stiff northeast breeze will be the hero for chasing the clouds away.
Those north easterlies will suck very dry air in from New England, New York and Pa, so the atmosphere will turn B & B, blue and breezy as we get into the afternoon.
High school football fans should prep for a chilling night on Friday with a wind chill deep down in the 30s by the second half. A run on hot chocolate at the band boosters concession stands is assured!
Under the cover of darkness, temperatures will tumble into the 20s and low 30s by Saturday morning making for a down right cold tailgate party outside Milan Puskar.
Weekend skies will be bright and sunshiny with highs in the 50s on Saturday (53 in Morgantown to 58 for most) then will jump into the 60s by Sunday.
That will make for nearly perfect conditions for the Battle of Guyandotte during Civil War Days this weekend.
One last note, the Marshall marathon on Sunday will feature a second consecutive cold start with sunrise temperatures near 30 degrees.
