HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A mix of clouds and sunshine keep temperatures seasonably comfortable through midday, then the front that is slowly traversing the Ohio Valley will start to kick up a few showers and storms. They should stay of the garden-variety, but a bunch of us will see at least some rainfall before the end of the day. Highs reach the low and mid 80s this afternoon, but considering Tropical Storm Isaias prowling the I-95 coastal corridor to our east, it could definitely have been a lot worse around here. The scattered showers fade overnight, with some patchy dense fog forming in its stead.

Look for a gradual drying from west to east tomorrow and Thursday, which will still will hold onto a pop-up shower in our far-eastern counties while letting more and more sunshine into our western counties. The end result will be a slow warming trend. Highs get back to the mid 80s on Thursday, but then return to around 90-degrees by the weekend. We had been fighting back an emerging drought situation in our northern and western counties with these recent bouts of rain, but it looks like we may well have to give back some ground on that. At least as a silver lining, the current projection for the weekend does feature sunshine.
