HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Much like yesterday, the early clouds dissipated for hazy sunshine that will set the tone for the day. Unlike yesterday, a southerly breeze will chip in to help push temperatures past the 50s this afternoon, making for a fairly pleasant afternoon. A new wave of clouds comes in tonight, but outside of a few spotty showers, this will not be a big deal. What’s behind it will be significant, as an even warmer surge of air lies beyond.

A large storm system is gathering strength, and will be heading into the Central Plains and western Ohio Valley Wednesday. As is typical with these storms, the winds out ahead of them will be out of the south, and behind them the north. This means our warmest day will be Wednesday when we will spike into the lower 70s. The rain will arrive on Thursday, and we’ll actually track the temperatures moving down all day long, sinking to the 40s by evening-- a big change from the day prior.

Friday’s playoff football games will be one for the hardy among us. Temperatures will stay in the 40s despite returning sunshine, then diving through the 30s as soon as the sun sets. Bring the blankets! The weekend does stabilize though, in a typical late-November range of the frosty 30s by morning, and the 50s in the afternoon. This truce doesn’t last long, as an even stronger system lurks early next week that may finally do the trick to drop the ‘first flakes’ in even the lower elevations.
