HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The clear, calm night air this time of year always leads to chilly temperatures, but if the skies stay clear through the day, you can bet that sunshine will have an uplifting influence on the afternoon numbers. On Sunday we held in the 40s, yesterday we reached the mid 50s, and today we should reach the upper 50s (and some hitting 60°). This will be a great afternoon for getting things done, and boy these days there’s a lot to do. After another quiet evening we’ll drop those temperatures back down through the 40s into the 30s for tomorrow morning.

Our next storm system is getting its act together out to our west, and will progress through the Ohio Valley in the coming days. At first on Wednesday our Ohio counties can get close to a spot shower, but we’re still expecting most to stay dry. The continuing southerly winds will add another couple degrees to the afternoon highs, now placing most of us across the 60-degree mark. Thursday will also end up in the 60s, but we’ll be tracking showers finally making it in during the latter part of the day.

A long, drawn-out zone of low pressure will be strung out across the Ohio Valley at that point, bringing through a couple different waves of showers. Keep the umbrellas handy Friday and Saturday both, a rather murky finish to what has been a sunny week. When this system departs on Sunday, colder air fills in behind it, offering the opportunity to finish with a few snowflakes. At this point, it’s nothing for the kiddos to get excited about, but we’ll keep an eye on it!
