HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - We’ve been tracking episodes of rain wafting northward through our region, then drifting back southward, with a time of milder air in between. When we’re to the north of the main batch of rain, our temperatures hold in the 40s and 50s, and when we’re too the south we make a run through the 60s almost to 70°. This up-and-down, on-and-off pattern will continue, pushing more rounds of rain into the Tri-State. Today’s high temperature won’t really peak until late in the day, if not after dark, because of how long it will take to get through the rain and on to the milder southerly winds that lie behind it-- And even then that same line of showers will drop back through our region overnight, making use of the same milder air, so don’t be surprised to hear a rumble of thunder.

Wednesday we’ll be back to another round of patchy drizzle and clouds, awaiting the next pulse of showers that won’t come through until later in the day. Temperatures will again make a run at the 60s. The scattered showers will finally fade out Thursday morning, giving us our best shot at a break in the action Thursday afternoon through midday Friday. Folks heading out to New Year’s Eve revelry may be pleased to avoid any cold, ice, or snow, but unfortunately rain will be back in town. This system is actually poised to be stronger than the ones before it, bringing a steady rain for much of Saturday, followed by a deep dive back to actual winter conditions by Sunday afternoon and evening.
