First snow flurries/showers of the season

On October 24, 2013, in Latest Forecast, by wx4sno

We got our first bout of snow showers for the 2013/14 winter season here in Snowville early last night and some of those showers continued into today.  The video above was shot around 4:15p this evening with temperatures holding around 40° F.  Not expecting any accumulations, compared to last year when we had a half inch or so around this time.  More flurries and snow showers are upstream into West Virginia and will slide eastward as the evening goes on…

Snow showers across SW Virginia and SE West Virginia

Another couple nights of really cold temperatures for this time of year…the normal high temperature is 63 and the normal low is 37.  Records are in jeopardy.  Freeze Warnings are out for all of the NRV and Mountain Empire tonight with a Freeze Watch in effect for Friday night.  If the area gets a hard freeze tonight, I don’t expect the warnings will be re-issued tomorrow night as the growing season will end if we see temps below 32° F tonight.

 

We’ll be 10-15 degrees colder than normal Friday night/Saturday morning with a low around 25 here in Snowville!  Temperatures return to normal for next week…next 7-10 days look average with no really strong cold intrusions on the GFS model run out to the first of November…will have to keep watch though.
