HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -Late Friday evening showers and thunderstorms had lessened in aerial coverage, a sure sign the risk of flooding was lessening. Overnight there is a lingering chance of a thundershower. Leftover high water will team with patchy dense fog to limit visibility and safety for folks traveling through the flood zone.

Saturday leftover hot spots include interests along the Little Kanawha where a rise on the river and some faster than normal currents on Saturday and in southern WV where the Guyandotte, Coal and Tug Rivers will show some minor rises after the rain.

Saturday will dawn with patchy dense fog and leftover showers far to the south before sunshine makes itself felt by mid-day into the afternoon. Kids should slap on a SPF 30 sunblock before heading to the Wave or Waterways pools as highs aim for the 80s. Any thundershower will hide out in mountainous WV.

Sunday will also be hot and hazy with the risk of thunder for a half hour. Highs will crest in the mid 80s.
