Gusty Winds & Rain Friday

It will be dry through Friday morning and we’ll wake up to temperatures well above freezing for the first time in a couple of days.  It will be a breezy day with gusts over 30 mph as we head into the afternoon.  Clouds will increase from north to south throughout the day with rain showers moving across the Ohio River by late morning into the early afternoon.  Showers will gradually move southeast across the state through the afternoon and evening hours ahead of a weak cold front.  The rain will move out late Friday night leaving us dry on Saturday.  Rain totals around the Commonwealth will range from a third of an inch to two thirds of and inch. 

Expect mainly sunny skies on Saturday with highs in the middle to upper 50s.  We’ll see similar temps on Sunday with a few showers possible, especially across the southern half of the state.  We’ll start a warming trend early next week with highs near 70 degrees by midweek.
