Shaping Up to be an Awesome Weekend!

Currently, there is an upper-level low circulating off to the north of the Commonwealth bringing in the cloudier skies. This feature will move out of the Ohio Valley and move into the Mid-Atlantic later on this evening. Skies will begin to clear out of the area later on tonight, the clear skies that we will be experiencing will help the temperatures drop to around the freezing mark.

High pressure begins to settle in heading into your Friday, with most of the area experiencing nothing but sunshine, with the exception of a few stray afternoon clouds. Highs around the area on Friday will rise into the upper 50s. Heading into Friday night, the ridge aloft will strength and settle over the Ohio Valley, this will result in clear skies during the night time hours. Again, the clear skies during the night time hours will aid in temperature dropping below zero, with temperatures early Saturday morning struggling to get above the 30 degree mark.
