HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The turbulent skies of yesterday have put us where we are today, seeing temperatures about 10 degrees cooler. The colder air swirling overhead is often a cloud producer, so the fight for sunshine is going to be a little more stubborn the farther north you head. An isolated shower will pop this afternoon where those clouds are still trying to hang on (thinking closer to US-33 and US-50 than south of I-64). We’ll start clearing out in a more lasting way this evening and overnight, but bring the blanket to the ballgame as temperatures will quickly drop back through the 50s and even the 40s after sunset.

Friday may start in the chilly 40s, but bold sunshine is set to carry the day. Look for high temperatures to reach 70° in the afternoon, a masterful way to end the workweek for folks that are just starting to get used to the fall air. It will be a perfect fall feel for the high school football games, as temperatures fall back through the 60s and 50s during the waning quarters, and the air will be peaceful.

Outside of a brief passage of showers on Saturday, the skies will stay mainly dry for much of Friday through Monday. We’ll also embark on a gradual warming trend, putting the 70s in the air on Sunday, and then stalking the 80°-mark in Monday’s sunshine. Sounds good for folks that may not be all that ready to jump head-first into the fall chill.
