HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - This time of year, we’re in the unofficial “fog season”, where departing showers have a really easy route to generating fog, and then the lengthening sunrise time keeps the fog around longer than before. Many areas didn’t see their fog lift until after the 9 or 10-oclock hour. Once we ditch the fog though, it’s on to partly-to-mostly sunny skies, a definite improvement on yesterday’s gloomy showers. It won’t be a completely clean sweep though. Many folks will end up rain-free today, but a few isolated showers and storms will still pop, mainly in the southern mountains. They will work back up toward I-64, but will fade after sunset. Most evening games and festivities will be just fine. Temperatures will slide back down through the 70s and 60s overnight, initially under clearing skies, but then watch for more of that valley fog slides into place.

Friday and Saturday will feature sunshine for more hours than not, keeping high temperatures in the low to mid 80s (which is warmer than average for this time of year). Unfortunately, there will still be a few isolated showers popping up each day, but most folks will still end up dry. At this stage I wouldn’t worry about the health of your outdoor events Friday and Saturday, but some spots will get that unlucky shower. Sunday and Monday are currently trending rain-free, and temperatures will hold solidly in the mid-80s.

Our next rain-maker for the whole of the Tri-State lurks in the days beyond, but there’s a lot of time between now and the middle of next week to keep an eye on things.
