First Warning Forecast | Clouds Break For Pleasant Sunshine
It will be good to dry out a little. Again.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Much of the region received an inch or two of rain between Saturday and Sunday, and we’re just now seeing the clouds and fog that were left behind gradually erode for returning sunshine. A light northerly breeze will be settling in more comfortable air, and it will be a refreshingly delightful afternoon. Temperatures will largely stay in the 70s this afternoon, with a few hitting 80°. Notably, we’ve finally reached the time in the calendar year where the average high temperature around here slides into the 70s on its way down toward winter. High pressure will continue to exert influence tonight, and you might notice a cozy chill as temperatures drop all the way into the 50s to start tomorrow morning. We’ll keep the sun shining tomorrow as well, with highs staying around 80-degrees.
Meanwhile, we’ll be eyeing the Gulf of Mexico as “Sally” makes her move toward the Louisiana coastline. This system is expected to become a minimal hurricane prior to landfall, so significant amounts of rain will once again be pouring into the southern states. We’ll be watching her progress after that, as often-times these storms can spread decent rains far inland as they die out. This would be more toward Thursday and Friday, and certainly is not set in stone at this point.
This weekend may actually provide more clarity weather-wise than the days before it. There will be a cold front swinging through before-hand, and some of the modeling coming back is projecting temperatures dropping all the way down to the 40s for each weekend morning with sunshine returning to the region. Fall is indeed not far away, so it’s good to get some of those same kinds of feels right on schedule.
