HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - This morning started cooler (chillier) than we have yet on the young transition toward the winter months. We had a lot of 30s, valley fog, and even a touch of frost in the hollows. Partly sunny skies will gradually work in during the day, and the fact that it stays rain-free makes a big difference. Highs hit the upper 50s, certainly not ‘warm’, but it’s the kind of weather we need to get more used to. This will be a good day to check out all the decent fall foliage, but layer back up this evening when visiting the area trunk-or-treats at the local churches.

Our next storm system arrives tomorrow afternoon, and it will leave us pining for the weather we have today. Expect showers to spread in from west to east, and stick around as a swirling mass of clouds and showers through both Friday and Saturday. Though there will be some lulls in the mix across that long period of time, it’s more prudent to simply develop a plan for rain if you’re going to be heading out to the local Trick-or-Treats or football games. Temperatures will struggle in the 40s and 50s for the most-part through this period, improving just in time for actual Hallow’s Eve Sunday night (where there aren’t many events). Early next week we’ll start off with some sunshine at least, and it will be good to inch back to somewhat more seasonable temperatures.
