First Warning Forecast | The Beginning Of Frosty Mornings
A Side-Effect Of An Extended Dry Stretch Beginning Along With It
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - When skies are clear and winds are calm, folks should be ready for a cold night. That was borne out this morning in the Tri-State, where many were in the 20s to start the day in the clear skies of Ohio, while some along I-64 held the line in the upper 30s before sunrise, then dropped to the freezing mark as clouds cleared after the Sun came up. At least we’ll be thawing out a bit given a mainly sunny/hazy picture today, but don’t expect much of a different feel from yesterday when the afternoon also only managed the upper 40s.
We find ourselves in between storms systems on the larger weather pattern, missing out on the “lake effect” snows starting to our north, and also missing the southern track storm system we’ve been eyeing to pass us by tonight and tomorrow. As a result you may be happy with the relative peace and quiet we’ll see from the skies right through the weekend, but as a consequence this morning’s battle with the frost will be a daily struggle each morning as well. Eventually we’ll slide in a slow warming trend this weekend, but now we’ll have to decide that the 50s to near 60° will suffice as ‘pleasant’. Perhaps that’s another silver lining we can take about a cold snap-- every little bit of help out of it becomes appreciated.
