HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - After another morning of near-record low temperatures, we’re tracking a passing wave of clouds overhead. These clouds will end up harmless, as the air has been drying out a bit courtesy of an area of high pressure that arrived last night. The April sunshine will eventually power back through these clouds this afternoon, allowing us to finish the afternoon in the low 60s. Though that’s still a little cooler than average, it is much better than where we’ve been the past couple of days. Look for a nice and easy night, with a starry start and temperatures sliding more seasonably back to the 40s.

Clouds will already be streaming back in on Saturday, with rain set to spread across the region. We’ll try to hold off the rain for some of the morning hours, but we’re going to get a good bit of rain one way or another. The rain will be steady at times in the afternoon and evening, where we’ll see temperatures initially having made a run at 60° cool back quickly through the 50s, potentially even into the 40s. Leftover clouds and drizzle will keep things gray at times on Sunday-- but we’re all looking forward to the weather next week.

It may well be the best “Monday” of weather we’ve had all year, as sunshine returns and temperatures soar back through the 70s, and then the 80s in the days that follow. It may even feel ‘hot’ considering the cold now, but I will gladly volunteer to be a judge!
