First Warning Forecast | Warming Trend Continues
Dry Skies As Well-- But It Won’t Last
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The time-change was a welcome sight this morning, as the now-earlier arriving sunshine helped clear out the early frost a tad earlier than before, and set us up nicely for the afternoon. We’ll be cruising past the 50s at lunchtime, on the way to the mid 60s -- milder than before. By now this incremental warming trend should be sufficient to get you outside and getting things done. The other side of the coin though is that our Sun sets before 5:30pm, which means a bunch of commuters will no longer be able to take advantage of these nice days. We’ll be dropping quickly to the 30s before the end of the day, but at least it stays quiet.
High pressure stays in control overhead for the next several days, keeping passing storm systems at bay. Highs will make it to near 70° through Thursday (Veterans Day). Currently we’re tracking our next rain-maker to swing through Thursday evening though (and the timing can change between now and then, so stay tuned). This will bring about another dramatic change in the weather pattern, sending us back down to the 40s this weekend (and during those playoff football games). Several systems will be quickly scooting through as well, offering a chilly rain, but also more sightings of those mountain snowflakes.
