HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - More and more of us managed to avoid the frost scraping this morning given the temperatures bumping up in the light southerly wind. It’s the continuation of a crescendo that began at the beginning of the week, and that will get us to the 60s this afternoon, feeling much more like spring than December. If you’ve had it on the mind to sneak on the tennis court or the golf course, this is your day, because our stretch of dry skies are about at an end. Our Ohio counties have been getting grazed by a few showers passing by to the north, but they will be coming right through starting tomorrow afternoon.

We’ll be tracking a front coming in tomorrow, then stalling out over the southern Ohio Valley. We’ll manage to stave off the rain until the afternoon Thursday, which allows for another day of temperatures spiking into the 60s, but after this our mild air will be tempered by occasional showers. We’ll see rain off and on Friday, and then a steadier rain Saturday as its final front swipes through. All told, we’ll be looking at upwards of an inch of rain from this multi-day event, but keep an eye out for a few lulls too. Whenever this zone of rain bumps northward, the folks underneath it to its south can nab a few more hours of rain-free warmth.

Once that final front swings past on Saturday though, we’ll turn sharply colder Sunday morning, even cold enough for some snowflakes. Don’t expect enough to delight the kiddos though. It’s starting to get down to the wire, but too early to count out snowfall before Christmas. As they say, “there’s always a chance”.
