New Year’s Weekend Weather Forecast

Wheeling W.Va. (WTRF) – Another year has quickly come and gone. As we gear up for New Year’s Weekend, you have a good chance to wash away all those bad habits. Grab your umbrella as you head out the door Saturday for the festivites.

Saturday, New Year’s Eve:

It’s looking like a scattered showers type of weekend, with rain showers starting Friday night into Saturday. Our max temperature for New Year’s Eve Day will be around the mid to low 50s while our overnight low will get down towards the lower 40s. Most of the rain showers will be contained to the morning and afternoon hours with most of the rain starting to wrapup closer to 8 PM. It will feel more like 48°F around the time that the ball drops if you happen to be outside. This will be most certainly one of the warmer New Year’s we have seen. Winds will be light from the south 05-10 mph, so it shouldn’t be much of a problem holding onto an umbrella.

Sunday, New Year’s Day:

We made it to 2023! Clouds will still remain in place for much of our Sunday but trend on the drier side precipitation wise. Our max temperature for the day will be around the 50 degree mark. Winds will pick up a bit on New Year’s Day averaging around 10 mph sustained, with gusts up to 15mph possible. Travel should likely have little to no impacts due to weather. Cloud coverage lingers into the New Year but don’t let that dampen your spirits! Enjoy the warmer weather & have a Happy New Year!
