Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
519 AM EDT Fri Oct 21 2016

Thursday evening through early Friday morning, cloud cover was
gradually on the increase from west to east across the area. The
greatest concentration was over southeast West Virginia, south
into the Northern Mountains of North Carolina. Scattered showers
skirted the far western extent of the region, producing less than
one-tenth of an inch generally along and west of a line from
Marion, Virginia to Bluefield, WV to Rupert, WV. Temperatures
continued the trend of being very mild for this time of the year.
Values ranged from the upper 50s to the mid 60s.

A cold front, along with its associated showers, will approach
and then cross the area today. In its wake, gusty northwest winds
are expected later this afternoon, through the overnight hours,
and last through at least the day on Saturday. A much colder
airmass is expected behind the front, dropping the mercury to
readings more in line with normal conditions. Lingering showers
will continue across parts of southeast West Virginia, south into
the Northern Mountains of North Carolina tonight into Saturday.
Elevations roughly at or higher than 4000 feet may experience some
light snow late tonight into early Saturday morning. Little or no
accumulation is expected given how mild the ground has been the
past week.
