Five Day Outlook – Friday 2/12/16
12 February 2016 Weather
11pm Thursday 2/11: Weather notes for the next few days for Brrrrrrkeley Springs, Shivering Shepherdstown and all across the freezin’ Eastern Panhandle:
1- Scattered snow showers will develop tomorrow afternoon and evening as much colder air blows into the EP. Not a big snow event, in fact an inch or less, but we’ve seen what can happen with icing on the roads even with a few flakes, so heads-up for tomorrow evening and nighttime travelers.
2- Major cold air in place for the weekend. Saturday morning’s low near 15 will carry a zero or below wind chill. The high only gets to 20 and the wind chill holds firm near zero or a little below. By Sunday the wind diminishes but temperatures don’t climb much beyond 20 degrees.
3- Monday brings milder temperatures back along with what appears to be a rain/snow mix setting up. Monday night could be all snow, then back to all rain on Tuesday with highs into the low 40s. It’s another low pressure system forming in the south and coming up through the Carolinas and Virginia that will be the cause here, and the storm track that develops into early morning will help solidify the forecast a good bit.
