HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The frosty morning chill that started the day is quite typical of December. Mostly clear skies will allow for a full day of sunshine, with a southerly breeze helping to push temperatures up to the 50s this afternoon. This is several degrees milder than yesterday. It might not get you to leave your jacket behind, but it will be a little easier crossing the parking lots to get that shopping done (or perhaps to re-string up the lights after this weekend’s windiness). After sunset it will be back to that typical December cool-back, putting us back below freezing for tomorrow morning.

High pressure continues to keep sunshine in the mix tomorrow, now bumping afternoon highs to around 60°. Wednesday and Thursday will also end up in the 60s, but our western counties will be getting a little close to some showers grazing the region. Thursday night we should get those showers to finally swing through, leading to a seasonably cooler day on Friday. Another rain-maker comes through on Saturday. One thing we’re not seeing a whole lot of in the forecast-- Snow. The air looks to remain too warm for that right into next week.
