First Warning Forecast | Some Messy Weather Ahead
But there are some quieter spots too.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - After the morning showers grazed our northern and western counties, southerly breezes helped push in a breather for most folks in the Tri-State to get outside and get those last minute grocery items or head out on the road. Rest assured, more rain is coming, and will be sweeping through the region from west-to-east this afternoon. Temperatures will briefly spike into the 60s, not so bad for November, but will then sag back into the 50s during the rains. Once the showers arrive they can be steady at times, with most locations looking at a half-inch of rain, give-or-take, before it moves along early Thursday.
Thanksgiving morning will start off in the clouds, with some lingering spits of drizzle for the Turkey-trotters, but there will still be plenty of clouds hanging on throughout the day, making this one a good one to just stay in side (and eat, watch TV, and eat, etc.) Friday will also stay with some stubborn clouds, but at least the shoppers should be treated to mainly rain-free conditions. Temperatures will stay in the 50s in the afternoons, with mornings near 40°.
Saturday and Sunday will turn out to be our best weather days (some good timing right there), with partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures edging closer to 60°. This will be great for those who are finally ending the hold-out and stringing up the outdoor Christmas lights. You also had better take advantage of the pleasant weekend weather regardless, as the next rain-maker will be an even messier event. Look for a rainy day on Monday, but with temperatures crashing through the 40s and 30s in the afternoon. It’s too early to nail in stone, but the early indications are that Tuesday continues the influx of cold air, potentially resulting in the first area-wide accumulation of snow.
