HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - While many appreciated the non-frosty start, with temperatures a full 30-degrees milder than yesterday, there are a few scattered showers sneaking around. These aren’t a big deal, as most won’t even merit the umbrella, but just take it along in case. Highs will reach the low 60s this afternoon, the silver lining to a gray/unfestive day like this. Overnight we still won’t really cool down, as a stiffening southerly breeze keeps us at least in the upper 50s with a few more scattered showers.

What really has our attention is Saturday’s weather, as a strong frontal system is set to swing through. Each location may only have to deal with it for a couple hours, the timing of its crossing where you’re at will be critical. Expect some gusty winds, and even a few rumbles of thunder as this springlike air is replaced by a return of the winter chill. It doesn’t look like there’s a way around the downpours, so downloading the free WSAZ Weather App may be your best bet to staying on top of things. You don’t want to be caught outside in the peak of this rain-crossing, and hopefully it’s not going to line up with any of our Christmas parades either.

Sunday returns the colder air, but also the sunshine. We’ll be trudging through a dry December day, with highs just in the 40s. From there, a large area of high pressure works in, keeping us dry right through midweek. A slow warming trend also takes hold, gradually pushing us back to the quite tolerable but quite Grinchy 60s.
