HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - We began the day much calmer than yesterdays wind-swept rains, but we’re also 30-degrees colder too. Highs will struggle to get into the lower 40s (and many won’t even get there). Meanwhile, early sunshine gradually hazes over to cloud cover during the day, but doesn’t have enough in it for precipitation, rain or snow. That all changes starting tonight.

A weak storm system will be gliding across the Ohio Valley today, and will arrive to the Tri-State right before sunrise tomorrow morning. Current indications are for spot dustings and coatings of snow in places that haven’t seen much of anything yet on the young season. It won’t be much, but the timing is key-- right when school busses are heading out. Any snow sticking to the roads will certainly be a concern, but beyond that narrow time-frame it’s not expecting to be a lingering issue. Flurries end as some fading drizzle around lunchtime, and we’ll warm back up to the lower 40s as sunshine returns in the afternoon, and any snow that did manage to stick melts away.

Thursday becomes another one of those ‘intermission’ days, with a mix of clouds and sunshine and seasonable temperatures in the lower 50s. That would be the next best day to get things done, as our next system moves into town Friday. Friday and Saturday both will see temperatures surge back into the 60s, but it’s with a widespread rain. This is the time of year where the kid-in-us yearns for thematic snowfall, but sadly this is going to be a very Humbuggy event.
