West Virginia is lucky enough to have two Panhandles. Our trip today will take us to the northern edition.
At 353PM, ET, Wheeling was reporting a temperature of 71 degrees with clear skies. A dissapating warm front was parked just north of Wheeling, with a broad area of clouds with a few embedded showers between Wheeling and Lake Erie. To the south, West Virginia was sunny and warm. Along the lake shore, it was 30 degrees cooler in the clouds and rain.
The warm air will continue to pump north through the day tomorrow. With this warm, moisture rich air rolling over the Appalachians, there could be a few showers quite a few clouds across southeastern West Virginia especially, though a few may filter north to the Ohio Valley. The warm front and this moisture infusion are a byproduct of a strong area of low pressure moving from the southern Plains to the Upper Midwest by Monday. A strong cold front will become weaker through the forecast period as it approaches Wheeling. Expect a few showers and storms as the boundary arrives on Monday afternoon. Just because of the warmth that Sunday will bring, there is a chance that some of those storms may be briefly severe.
