Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
502 PM EST Fri Dec 2 2016

Friday turned into a clear and cool day for the mid Atlantic
region as High pressure continued its graceful approach from the
south and west. A brisk Northwest flow aided in the presence of a
mid level cloud deck across the higher elevations of both Virginia
and West Virginia, greatly limiting the temperature potential in
the afternoon hours. Low to mid 40s were prevalent along and west
of the Blue Ridge, while 50s were common in the Piedmont counties,
likely due to reduced winds and an increase in sunshine.

High pressure will continue to build in from the southwest into
Saturday. The high moves overhead Sunday ahead of a plume of moisture
that will work into the area. This will occur well in advance of
a developing storm system along the Gulf Coast which sets its
sights on the forecast area early next week. This system should
track west of the region by Tuesday with a trailing cold front
working through the area during the middle of next week. Behind
the boundary, much cooler air will fill in, giving us an extended
period of below normal temperatures.
