First Warning Forecast | Some Of The Best August Temperatures You’ll See
The skies aren't too bad either.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Typically as we move through the fabled ‘dog days’ of August, the air overhead is just so used to starting off in the 70s and finishing near 90° that it takes quite a shock to the system to change up the pattern. Fortunately for us one such shock (”Isaias”) came through the eastern half of the country yesterday without much of a scratch locally -- and yet we still partake in the benefits that so-often follow. Highs today will remain in the low 80s for most of us, and with hours of sunshine (normally we’d need clouds or even showers to achieve that kind of result). Not that it’s going to be perfect though, as we’ll be keeping our eye on the southern and eastern mountains for a couple showers that can pop... But most of us should be happy with what they get today.
Thursday and Friday will have a similar look to it, with our Ohio counties closest to the dry air out west, and our eastern mountain counties vulnerable for a pop-up shower in the afternoon. Still, most hours for most folks will end up rain-free each day. This will keep those temperatures slowly rising, such that we’ll be back in 90-degree territory this weekend. After making up some ground against a drought scenario locally, we’ll be giving back some ground in the coming days. Our next Tri-State-wide rain maker will be arriving early next week, dropping us back into the mid 80s before any heat-wave talk returns.
