Cold and windy to start the holiday weekend, but temperatures bounce back soon

Following a cold front, we were colder and windy on Friday and that trend has continued to start the holiday weekend.

Some areas have seen the wind chill bottom out in the single digits and teens this morning! Unfortunately, we believe the wind will stick with us all day.

In fact, Carroll, Floyd and Patrick Counties have been placed under a wind advisory until 9 p.m. Most of us will see wind gusts between 25 and 35 miles per hour.

Actual temperatures are starting in the 20s and 30s, so it’s colder than Friday morning. We’ll only warm up into the 30s and 40s for highs this afternoon, about five degrees below-average.

In addition to the wind and cold, we’re keeping the chance for mountain snow in the forecast. Western Greenbrier, Western Pocahontas and Grayson Counties are under a winter weather advisory until 1 p.m.

Outside of the western mountains, we’ll have decreasing clouds into the afternoon.

After another cold start on Sunday, we’ll see a nice warm-up by afternoon. In addition to the warmer temperatures, we believe the winds will be weaker tomorrow.

We’re forecasting quiet and cool weather for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday. Our next storm system arrives that night.

A cold front sends a round of showers our way through Tuesday morning. Temperatures will be too warm for us to get any snow out of this one.

What we're tracking - Tuesday 9 a.m.
