HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - After the early fog and cool start, we’re getting broad-based sunshine beaming through, and it will take care of the rest of the day. Highs will reach the upper 70s and hold it there. Toss in low humidity and a refreshing breeze, it’ll be about as good as it can get out there. All outdoor activities are a go, and same with the evening. If you’re going to go out to those high school games though, bring along the long-sleeves, as temperatures will quickly back their way down through the 60s after sunset. It will be a great night for the firepit though, and don’t be surprised to find those campgrounds much more occupied than normal for a post-Labor Day weekend.

High pressure continues to dominate this weekend, with both days lined up for full sunshine. The morning hours still present cozy-cool temperatures near or below 60°, but with gradually warming afternoons. Saturday’s highs in the lower 80s is still magnificent, though will bring that bad burn if you’re not careful tailgating at the football game. Sunday’s highs will inch into the upper 80s... Still pleasant enough for a summer day, but definitely a harbinger of things to come. Monday and Tuesday still keeps that Sun shining, but now we’re talking about the 90°-mark. The next shot at showers around here may well hold off until the middle of next week.
