HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The fog has been lifting more quickly than yesterday, allowing the penetrating sunshine to push us into the mid 80s this afternoon almost region-wide. It’s a great way to catapult us into the last weekend of summer, though again it won’t be perfect through the entire afternoon. A few isolated showers will pop up during the heat of the day, but they will be rare and primarily confined to the mountain counties. As the Sun sets, temperatures will slide back pleasantly into the 70s, great for spectators to the football games or those headed out to the numerous fall festivals out there.

Saturday will also feature some bountiful sunshine, but also that isolated shower that can briefly annoy. More hours than not will be great, which still puts temperatures back into the 80s. Tailgaters and golfers had better be ready with the sunscreen as well, or else you’ll be sorry when that sunburn lingers.

Early next week will start off quietly, but the middle of next week will end up pretty active. The first actual day of fall is Wednesday, and it appears we’ll get our first autumn storm system right on schedule. It’s still pretty far out, but we’ll be watching a swath of rain cutting through the middle of next week for everybody, and change up our temperatures to stay more in the 60s, instead of the 80s.
