We’re keeping things on a mostly calm track for Saturday afternoon as only a few small and isolated showers have popped up on the MaxTrack; most of which being west of I-75. These may grow a little more, or a few more may pop-up. However, they are daytime heat driven, so whatever is there later this evening will fizzle out pretty quickly. Temperatures have been on the warm side, getting to the low to middle 80s for most, but also cooling nicely in areas that the front has passed, and the winds have shifted.

As the front continues south, it will do little for temperatures overnight, and will wash out as the higher pressure south of us stands its ground. A small low attached to the system will sit and spin over West Virginia tomorrow and into Monday keeping cooler air shooting into the state from the north, and a small daily rain/storm chance. The best chance for storms will be Sunday, as the low crosses the state and lowers pressure enough to see some pop-up activity. Coverage will be very isolated for these thundershowers Sunday, so you still have a lot of time for outdoor activities. A plus, will be the cooler and drier air in place making it warm, but also incredibly comfortable. Monday, the low will be centered further east, so the pressure will be slightly higher, limiting most of the pop-up storm activity to the Eastern Coalfields and Appalachian Foothills. Both Sunday and Monday, if you get caught under a t-shower it will be a brief, but heavy, downpour and maybe a decent wind gust. The rain and storm chance lowers through the middle and end of the week as a ridge builds in and the low slides away. Temperatures will have a chance to become “summery” and so will the dew point temperature. Meaning, by the end of the week, it will feel like it’s July.
