HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Early clouds broke for sunshine, and temperatures already started on a good head of steam, being about 10-degrees milder than yesterday right out of the gates. We’re expecting sunshine to hold on for the rest of the afternoon, and highs will reach the mid 50s. This is fairly seasonable for this time of year (average highs are actually 52°), but the fact that it’s a 10-degree bump from yesterday’s numbers should be a sensibly favorable change to our outdoor fortunes. It will be a little easier getting across those parking lots or up on the ladder stringing the lights. In ‘normal’ fashion, temperatures will quickly drop back through the 30s under clear skies.

A quick-hitting system scoots through Wednesday afternoon, not allowing much time from when any early valley fog lifts and those clouds arrive. The showers themselves wont be a big deal, but they will hold temperatures down into the 40s to near 50°. The good news for folks that like the milder air is that we won’t see any sort of cold snap dropping in behind this weak system. In fact, we’ll be seeing some 60° air coming in for Thursday and Friday, establishing a mild start to December.

Our next run of showers arrive on Saturday, but currently looking like another no-biggie. That’s good news for spectators of the state title football games this weekend (and the lack of cold air would be another treat). Of course, there’s a lot of time between now and then for us to see how this all settles out.
