RAIN TO SNOW THURSDAY/FRIDAY
Here’s the TLDR summary by Friday mid-day:
For anyone who wants to read on — THANKS!
A little blip of precip starts the day with the chance of a little freezing rain around Summersville around mid-morning. (See our model below) This would be due to a warm front. Then we sit in a gap with warmer temps in the mid 40s in the lowlands.
Then we move to the evening where it’s raining for most everyone, but look for some sleet and wet snow in the high terrain east of Summersville at this point around 7p.m.
After this, the region east of Charleston changes to snow and we expect those accumulations you saw in the first image. Watch for SLICK ROADS early Friday even if you only have very light accumulations. We will have the chance for ice to form out there on area roads. Also a little streamer band or two — or three — could be floating in off the Great Lakes. That usually adds a little fluffy accumulation in a very narrow band.
Temps on Friday will be COLD! Only in the upper 20s in the lowlands and mid 20s in the high terrain.
