Get ready for another winter storm.
A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect for our area starting Sunday at 7 p.m. as we brace for the potential of another powerful winter storm on Monday that could bring multiple precipitation types, including snow.
Right now, our weather pattern is calming down a bit as we move into the weekend. We'll stay cold, which is keeping the ice around. There's not much chance for melting over the next several days. For Friday night, we have only a small chance to see a few snow flurries, some light rain, or freezing drizzle. Most models keep any precipitation light Friday and Saturday. Both Saturday and Sunday should hold chilly temperatures with highs only up to the low 30s both days.
Sunday will be the "calm before the storm" so to speak as we are tracking a couple of larger and moisture-filled low pressure systems which will head northeast toward the Ohio Valley by late Sunday night. The ingredients are setting up for an impactful storm on Monday. Cold air from the north and moisture from the south. The type of precipitation and amount are both dependent on where the low travels in relation to the Commonwealth. At this time, it is likely we will see all types of precipitation at some point across the state with some heavy snow more likely north or northwest and freezing rain south. Hold on for totals as things are likely to change over the next several hours.
The 8-day forecast shows a few more chances for winter weather exist, plus cold air camps out for a while. Tuesday will be the coldest with highs in the upper teens.
