HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Most areas started off well-enough this morning, with temperatures once-again on track to get into the 80s given the hours of sunshine involved. However we’ll be tracking showers from an approaching front that will interrupt our nice streak of weather. This front isn’t very wide, so no one place will have to deal with it for a particularly long period of time, but because we cover such a wide area we’ll end up monitoring the thing all day long here at the station as it lumbers its way across. Our western counties will see these passing showers first, and the eastern counties in West Virginia won’t get the rain until the afternoon. Thunder will become a part of this as well, primarily in the afternoon. Once it starts raining where you’re at, you’ll quickly cool back through the 70s. We’ll all get back to breaking clouds and quieter skies tonight, with temperatures eventually slide back into the 50s.

Onward to Thursday, we’ll see early fog dissipate for returning sunshine, but as the ground warms up and cooler air moves in aloft, the widening temperature differences will eventually popping new clouds into the mix, along with a few isolated showers in the afternoon. The overall trend will be for improvement though, as temperatures slide back into the 70s for highs under lowering humidity. Expect afternoons in the 70s and mornings in the 50s right through Saturday morning, great weather for those high school football games and area festivals.

Saturday and Sunday keep the sunshine going, so bring the sunblock when going out to those college home openers. Temperatures will be inching into the 80s, so you’ll feel it again. Next week the heat goes up another notch, which stands to reason when the Sun continues to shine rain-free. We may even hit 90° again, but at least we’ll have enjoyed a nice dry stretch first.
