First Warning Forecast | Downpour risk continues another day
Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - How quickly the region has gone from needing rain to having too much, but that seems to be the way things go. Even though the flooding has been localized, areas that have gotten hit these past few days have been impacted hard. Friday presents another risk for downpours and local high water before the weekend turns a bit quieter. Much of next week looks significantly quieter and refreshing as both temperatures and humidity drop.
Friday morning starts with areas of fog and isolated showers as temperatures hover near 70 degrees.
High temperatures reach near 80 degrees for the afternoon as the day stays mostly cloudy. New scattered showers and thunderstorms develop around midday and persist through the evening hours. Some storms will contain downpours that lead to local high water. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect through the evening.
Showers and storms fade Friday night into Saturday morning as areas of fog settle in. Low temperatures fall to the mid 60s.
Saturday may see a couple showers in far southeastern Kentucky and southern West Virginia, but most locations stay dry with increasing sunshine. High temperatures reach the mid 80s.
Sunday sees another opportunity for scattered showers and storms area-wide, mainly during the afternoon and evening. High temperatures reach the mid 80s.
Monday stays dry under a mostly sunny sky as high temperatures reach the upper 80s.
A couple passing showers cannot be ruled out Monday night into Tuesday morning, otherwise dry conditions prevail through Tuesday evening with more sunshine. Temperatures only top out near 80 degrees Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday will be quite refreshing as temperatures fall to the 50s in the morning and only rise to the upper 70s in the afternoon. Sunshine continues.
