It’s time for a night time forecast on this, the final night of the NCAA tournament. We will go to the home of Marshall University, which, to my knowledge, never makes the tournament.
At 1051ET, Huntington was reporting a temperature of 62 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. A low level wave moving through the Ohio Valley has brought showers through the area, though they have shifted predominantly into the Panhandles of the state.
An upper level trough was going to help enhance the lee trough over the High Plains, while the exit region of the jet will be polluted with multiple streaks, leading to multiple waves and widespread shower activity, even south of the leading edge of warm air. The bulk of sysnoptic scale activity will steer clear of western West Virginia, however surface waves moving south of the various boundaries will make things very damp in Huntington. A wave particularly on Tuesday afternoon will bring heavy rain and thunderstorms south of a stationary front, while a reinvigorated surface low over the Plains will lead to more moisture arriving on the scene Wednesday night.

Some showers are seen across eastern West Virginia, just like we thought, but the action for Huntington comes tomorrow. [Actually, I forgot to save a radar image from the Huntington area. My b.
