HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Temperatures this morning started off as chilly as the upper 30s with locally dense valley fog, but the good thing about May sunshine is that it rises earlier, soars higher, and stays longer than any month before it, which will do wonders to kick out the fog and get us to moderating temperatures as soon as possible. Expect enough sunshine for a pleasant afternoon, with highs cresting in the mid 60s. Despite this still being about 10 degrees cooler than where we should be, the 60s are pretty respectable, especially when you’ve got some yardwork to do. Clouds will gradually increase this afternoon, and showers will return tonight, but we should get all the ballgames in first.

Friday will see another round of rain swing through, primarily in the morning hours, but also seeing a few more showers scattering into a stubborn afternoon of cloud breaks and setbacks. All of this is on the wings of another one of those brisk northwest wind kind of days. Friday night will clear out much like last night did, but we may well have to cover the plants, as we’ll be looking at another sunrise that starts in the upper 30s.

Our Mother’s Day weekend is looking like a half-and-half deal again, with our best sunshine opportunities on Saturday (highs in the seasonably cool low 60s)... Mother’s Day itself continues to look dreary though, with rain lurking most of the day. A few showers will still linger into Monday before better sunshine arrives Tuesday. One thing that does not look to change a whole lot are those temperatures. We’ll be staying in the 50s and 60s right through the middle of next week.
