First Warning Forecast | Change Is In The Air
Some of the wettest weather of the summer thus-far is headed in.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Though the day starts off with hazy clouds, sunshine, and the same sort of temperature rise as the past several ‘heat-wave’ type days we’ve been having, today will finish decidedly different. A storm system is arriving from the west, and from lunch-time onward today will spread rain and rumbles throughout the Tri-State. This will knock the temperatures down back through the 80s and even 70s, and give some much-needed rain-water for the lawn and garden. Periods of rain will continue through Friday as well, though perhaps not as intensely as what we’ll see this evening. All told, by Saturday most folks will have seen a good 1″- 2″ of ground soaking water, with some pockets of a generous 3″- 4″ of rain. It will be spread out across several hours for the most part, keeping flooding threats manageable.
The weekend will feature times of sunshine working back into the mix, but we’re still not quite done with the daily rain risks. The two will combine to keep temperatures in the more seasonable 80s. Early next week will feature the same kind of skies, with partial sunshine and several opportunities at passing showers to keep an eye on.
