HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Skies are shedding their early clouds, and we’ll end up with a decent window for sunshine during the day, which will get temperatures back respectably to the upper 50s (average highs are in the lower 60s). By the end of the day new clouds will haze their way in, courtesy of a fast-moving jet stream that is getting our next storm system ready to arrive soon enough. We will stay dry though, so no worries for the Trick-or-Treaters who shrewdly relocated their candy-times away from last week’s rains. By tomorrow morning though, we’ll be ready to go back to some chilly showers.

We start off Tuesday with temperatures around 40°, but the eastern mountains will sink deep into the 30s. It will be an interesting prospect to watch, but as most of us end up in a pass of cold rain the mountains above 3000 feet in the east can see snowflakes mix in (or even take over briefly). By afternoon we’ll be breaking back into sunshine, but don’t expect much more than just the 40s for temperatures all the way through, sinking to around 30° by Wednesday morning. This will effectively end the growing season, and have us grabbing the jacket and the scraper-- and learning to keep both around for good.

Wednesday’s sunshine only get us back to about 50° (about 10° below average for this time of year), and much of the rest of the week will stay in the 40s by afternoon, and below freezing each morning. We’ve got another system to watch Thursday, which could bring another mix of rain and snow, but it currently is projected to miss us to the south (so it’s wintry mix ends up primarily being for the Carolinas). After that, it’s back to sunshine to get us to the weekend, but don’t expect any warmth here either.
