Today we visit Weirton, WV, way up in the stovepipe of the state. While much of the Eastern US is looking ahead to what impacts Hurricane Florence will have in the region towards the weekend, let’s take a look at what the weather will be like in the lead-up to this powerful cyclone.
At 1153pm EDT, the temperature at nearby Wheeling, WV was 62 degrees under overcast skies. An area of low pressure is quickly exiting the Northeast, which trails a boundary down to the Virginias. Some isolated shower activity is found to the south, but the Weirton area stays dry tonight. High pressure builds in behind it and while Tuesday should remain dry, clouds will continue to persist over the region. The system backs up a smidge on Wednesday, so the clouds will continue to cover the region and while some scattered shower activity should remain off to the south, one cannot completely rule out that a couple stray showers could find their way northward into the city. Overall, not a bad couple of days! Now… about that hurricane…
