HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - After another morning of frost and fog, we’re wavering back and forth between getting used to what will surely only become a more regular occurrence and rolling the eyes at another start on the struggle-bus. Either way, we’re stuck in this pattern and will spend our mornings scraping and our afternoons still reaching for the sweater. At least it’s staying dry around here. Temperatures will claw their way back to around 50° this afternoon under brightening sunshine, not much different than yesterday. Skies will clear out boldly this evening, but then we’ll be dropping quite quickly after sunset through to the 30s (be ready if you’re heading out late). This all leads to, voila-- another start tomorrow morning in the frosty 20s.

High pressure re-establishes itself in time for the weekend, as a strong storm system generates off the east coast. We’ll end up staying dry because that off-shore system hogs all the available moisture. Dry skies and clear nights make for those chilly mornings, but the afternoons will gradually warm up given continued sunshine. The timing couldn’t be more perfect, granting us this deserved reprieve right in line with the weekend. Our afternoon highs climb through the 50s Friday and Saturday, and even despite the time-change on Sunday we’ll end up near 60°, which had got to feel nice by then.

Early next week we’ll be back into a regular heat-wave -- Well, the 60s anyway. From where we’ve been, it’ll be a pleasant improvement.
