HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Folks across the Tri-State woke up to temperatures a full 30-degrees colder than yesterday morning, having now dropped below freezing under a heavy frost. But the Sun is shining and the winds are light. Ordinarily we’d get a nice little boost for the afternoon, but not today. Look to stay in the 30s and 40s all day long, with temperatures nose-diving back through the 30s as soon as dusk arrives. Bundle up and bring the blankets to those football playoff games tonight-- only the strong will survive!

Hazy clouds will arrive on Saturday, but there won’t be any showers along with them. In fact, Saturday ends up the best day for people to their shopping handled and errands run. Highs will be in the more seasonable 50s, but it still will take a little getting-used-to as we were spoiled with those 70s not too long ago. Travelers will need to know that Sunday will see showers back into the area, but that’s only the first-half of a large storm system.

Sunday night into Monday, the front driving this storm pushes through, sending temperatures tumbling and turning rain into snow. Monday will stay in the blustery 30s all day, with scattered snow flurries flying, mainly in our eastern counties. Hunters and travelers, if you are headed east to or through the WV mountains, expect to see snow accumulating on the ground. Even the lowlands have a shot at seeing the flakes. The cold stays with us through Wednesday, but it’s good to see things quieting down weather-wise in the run-up to the Thanksgiving Holiday.
