HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Another morning of sub-freezing frost and fog draped much of the Tri-State, but bold sunshine quickly came to the rescue. After most of us started out in the 20s, we’ll be cruising through the 40s and on to the low and mid 50s this afternoon under cloud-free skies. Though you should be able to appreciate a slight difference this afternoon, don’t let it fool you-- when the Sun goes down, those temperatures will drop quickly. Those headed to the high school football games this evening will have to prepare to fall right back through the 30s in the second half!

High pressure holds in place all weekend long, keeping a developing coastal storm harmlessly to our east, and keeping the Sun shining overhead. Though the mornings will still be frosty cold, the afternoons will feature progressively milder air as the sunshine continues. We’ll be in the upper 50s on Saturday, and then 60° on Sunday. Though that doesn’t sound particularly warm, it will be a great day for fall pictures (and maybe getting the kids to rake some leaves).

Next week will feel like a regular heat wave ;-) Highs well into the 60s and approaching 70° as we continue to stay dry. But those things will come to an end the second half of the week as our next storm system finally approaches.
