HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The morning frost and fog has abated, and skies are actually turning out okay across the Tri-State. Mostly cloudy yes, but some sunshine is coming in around the edges, and temperatures will end up in the rather seasonable lower 50s (we’re just not used to these ‘normal’ temperatures just yet). Compared to tomorrow’s weather, today will end up being the better one to make those grocery runs or to assess any travel plans in the COVID-era.

A storm system is moving across the Ohio Valley, and will bring rain back into the region tomorrow. The earliest hours of the day will be your best, with a southerly breeze trying to hold back the approaching showers while also keeping temperatures in the 40s. You’d better get out early though, as most of us will be under some occasionally steady rain by midday, continuing through the evening and overnight. Temperatures will get up to around 60°, but it won’t be easy to enjoy scurrying across the rainy parking lots. Showers will exit early Thanksgiving morning, but a lingering drizzle can affect any remaining turkey trotters. Conditions will slowly improve Thursday afternoon, with temperatures sneaking into the mid 50s.

Our best weather days appear to be reserved for the shoppers, with gradually increasing sunshine and temperatures moderating toward 60-degrees Friday and Saturday. Even Sunday looks dry with a fair amount of sunshine, but our next rain-maker approaches later that night. That next system also looks pretty interesting, as the rains have a shot at finishing as snow as temperatures crash Monday afternoon.
