Bucking the trend, Monday’s deer season opening day in West Virginia looks cooler

Weather

(WOWK) – The traditional “gun-buck” season for whitetail deer kicks off as the sun comes up Monday (November 23, 2020). After a string of dry and hot days for November, the weather looks cooler and the ground will be damp in the morning.

Rain is likely Sunday until late evening.

Rain will taper off before sunrise which is 7:17 a.m. in Charleston but the clouds will remain. Hunters and deer will have the chance to move more quietly about the woods with a carpet of wet, fallen leaves but later in the day the leaves will dry out and become crunchy once again. Morning temperatures will be right around 39 degrees and the afternoon high will top out only in the 50 degree range.

Wednesday a new round of rain is expected for most of the day and Thanksgiving and Black Friday look to be dry with highs near 60.
