HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Beautiful hazy blue skies helped usher out temperatures out of the seasonably cool lower 40s this morning and on to the seasonably mild temperatures in the low 70s. This is THE day to get out there and enjoy the spring air (though do note that the tree pollen is still sky high). It’s also a good idea to take a look around yard to see if there’s anything that needs to be taken care of, as we’re not going to be back to levels like this in a while.

A cold front drops in from the north and west tonight, and by dawn tomorrow we’ll be cooling into the 30s. Rain will initially spread in, but as it gets colder a few snow showers will mix in. Blustery winds will make the air feel like it’s around the wintry freezing mark all day long, though we’ll try to sneak into the 40s by the end of the afternoon. There will be some snippets of sunshine on the day, but they will be hard to enjoy with the constant risk of a chilly roaming shower and those brisk breezes. An isolated shower will still linger into Thursday as well (with a few flakes in the mountains), as temperatures continue to struggle. Morning temperatures will dip down to near 32°, so watch out for the potential for Freeze Warnings. Tender plants should be protected.

We’ll see some actual improvement on Friday, but it’s a bit of a fleeting thought. Sunshine will increase temperatures from the cool 50s to the more reasonable lower 60s. Showers will be coming back for parts of Saturday and Sunday though--- all the more reason to make the most of today!
