Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
428 PM EST Wed Jan 18 2017

Satellite imagery indicated cloudcover diminishing from east to
west through the day as high pressure made its approach from the
lower Ohio River Valley. The downsloping northwesterly windflow
made for a wide range in afternoon temperatures, with southeast
West Virginia holding in the low 40s during the day, while
temperatures warmed into the low to mid 60s across the Southside
of Virginia and the Piedmont of northern North Carolina.

The center of high pressure will pass over the central
Appalachians tonight, making for generally light winds and mostly
clear skies. Overnight temperatures will cool into the low to mid
30s for most of the region, with upper 20s expected for a few of
the deeper mountain valleys. As the high passes off the coast
Thursday morning, winds will shift more southerly, allowing warmer
air to build into the mid Atlantic. Expect Thursday afternoon
high temperatures to warm into the mid to upper 50s for much of
the region. Clouds will increase during the afternoon and evening
as another low pressure system approaches from the central
Mississippi River Valley.
