HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Scattered showers have dwindled since the overnight, with even some brightening of the skies in spots, but we shouldn’t get too cute about it as our next set of showers will be coming on in soon enough. Temperatures will be stuck in the 50s for the most-part today. We’ve been stuck in this quasi-stationary pattern where ripples and pulses of showers have been coming across for days-- but we’re about to get a real break, if only perhaps an intermission. Following the next batch of rain that approaches this afternoon and exits overnight, we’ll see breaking clouds and even sunshine as we get to Thursday afternoon.

Thursday afternoon’s crack at sunshine should kick us back toward 60° in the afternoon, a place we’ll again stay through Saturday. We’re tracking an even stronger storm system that will arrive in time for New Year’s Eve that will bring more rain. This one will bring more than an inch of rain for most of us, sogging up the first day of 2022, and then see a nose-dive on Sunday that bring the temperatures down from the 60s at Midnight, to as low as the upper 20s as we approach the start of Monday. This should have us cold enough to get snowflakes in the air to finish things off. That trip back to work and school will not be pleasant next week as the pendulum will have swung fully in the other direction. Look for the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Maybe once we get there we can find more ways to appreciate the milder air we’ve been going through now, despite the rain.
