Scattered thunderstorms to continue throughout the week

MORGANTOWN — The weather will remain inconsistent this week, aside from warm temperatures hanging around.

Afternoon and evening thunderstorms caused some flash flood warnings for Monongalia and Preston counties Monday.

And today will remain pretty much the same, with a mix of sun, rain and thunderstorms that are difficult to predict, said John Feerick, AccuWeather senior meterologist.

“It’s going to be a bit of an unsettled week here,” he said.

Today will start out warm and humid in the morning hours, and then more showers and thunderstorms may pass through the area in the afternoon and evening. There is also the potential for more flash flooding, Feerick added.

A front is moving into the area, which will stick around Wednesday and Thursday.

“If there’s a dry period in there, it’s probably Wednesday night into Thursday morning, maybe,” Feerick said.

But when it comes down to hourly forecasts, it’s going to be tough to pinpoint those wet vs. dry moments.

“I guess if there’s good news, at least it’s warm,” he said.

Today, temperatures will remain in the mid-80s, with a slight cooling coming through Wednesday and Thursday, with temps in the upper 70s and low 80s. At the moment, Friday is supposed to be 75.

“I’m not convinced that Friday is a whole lot cooler than Thursday,” Feerick said.

Heading into the weekend, we should be back in the low 80s.

The nighttime lows through the week will be lower 60s, he said.

“It’s a changeable month,” Feerick said about May, adding that we’re not going to see a steady bunch of rain. Instead, it will be both sunny and stormy sporadically this week.

“We’re going to have to keep an eye on the radar and an eye on the sky the next few days.”
