HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -Temperatures will start out icy cold at dawn Thursday with readings in the upper teens off south and low 20s off north. Once the temperature jumps above freezing by mid-morning we are unlikely to see another sub-freezing low most of next week and perhaps not until 2022!

The rest of Thursday afternoon will result in high temperatures around 50 degrees and a south breeze with sunshine fading as the day goes on. By the evening, clouds have fully taken over the skies and that along with a breeze will keep us in the mid to high 40s all evening long.

By Friday milder winds will produce more clouds as the sun gets filtered out by the increased high altitude moisture. Highs will eye 60 by day’s end with any rain likely holding off until after evening church services.

Christmas day will dawn with temperatures near 50 degrees then despite a general cloud cover with a few scattered showers highs will get close to 60 degrees!

Moving into the last full work week of the year, a springlike feel will be common place as the wind continues from the south. This southern breeze will flood the skies with clouds and occasional showers. At least we get daily highs in the 60s as compensation for our mostly gloomy end to the year.
