Big Chill Returns This Weekend, Greets WV Hunters With Icy Start

Posted: Updated:

Temperatures will rise for a few days, then the whipping winds of winter will roll into our region for the second half of the weekend.  The gun-buck hunting season also starts in West Virginia on Monday morning, and the StormTracker 13 Meteorologists say morning temperatures for the start will definitely be cold.

According to StormTracker 13 chief meteorologist Spencer Adkins, rain will move in Friday with a cold front and temperatures will keep on falling for the next two days.

"We should go from a high near 60 Friday to a morning high in the 40s Saturday with falling daytime temperatures and by Sunday some areas will barely make it back to 30 degrees as the high.  That's an impressive drop," said Adkins.

Cold winds are also expected to add wind chill as an issue for those out and about this weekend.  The Stormtracker meteorologists are also calling for some snow to fly in the high terrain of West Virginia.  

"The northwest wind should bring at least a little snow that sticks in places east of Summersville late Saturday until late Sunday so there could be some slick driving in some of the more mountainous areas in West Virginia," said Adkins.

The firearms season for bucks starts Monday in West Virginia and the current StormTracker 13 forecast calls for morning start off temperatures in the lowlands in the 20 degree range with teens in the high terrain.  

"Some hunters really like the cold conditions for deer season," said Adkins, "but the big thing is to just have enough layers on to deal with the early morning cold on Opening Day."
