HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Temperatures started off a lot milder than where we were over the weekend, uniformly in the 50s, but as the day wears on we’ll start to see a split develop in our weather, all depending on cloud cover and showers. We’ve got a front draped across central Ohio, due to the convergence of warm-enough-for-summer winds up from the south and cold-enough-for-snow winds coming at it from the north. As this air converges, it can only go upward, thus forms clouds and showers, especially in central Ohio and northern Kentucky. This swath of showers will also scoop up our Ohio counties too, leaving them in clouds, rain, and seeing their temperatures slowly creep from the 50s into the 60s. Meanwhile, south of I-64 we’ll be looking at partly sunny skies breaking free, and afternoon temperatures managing to get into the 70s. It won’t be a completely clean sweep though, as a few scattered showers can briefly pop up in the south, and a lull in the north, but each will still see predominantly different weather on average. This pattern continues overnight and on into the start of Tuesday, but after that things should even out.

As showers start to lift northward and out of the region Tuesday afternoon, more and more of us will end up on the ‘rain-free’ side of things, until finally all end up dry. Not only rain-free, but also feeling that summery warmth. Highs Tuesday get into the mid 70s for many of us, but then the 80-degree mark is in range given mid-week sunshine. An “Indian Summer” is the term used for a multi-day stretch of unseasonable warmth that follows a period of frosty mornings. Given the chill of this past weekend, we’ll be in “Indian Summer” territory Wednesday through Friday. It is looking much more comfortable for the spectators at the Friday football games compared to last week. Showers are lurking for this upcoming weekend though, but not with as crazy of a coold-own as this past week.
