HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The southern snow system that we’ve been tracking (of note: Huntsville, Alabama has more snow than we do this season) is pulling away to the east. As it does so, sunshine will begin to crack back in from west to east. Temperatures will remain quite cold though, not compared to a typical January but when considering last week where we stayed in the 60s each afternoon. We’ll be in the 30s this time around, with a brisk breeze at times. As skies go clear and calm tonight, look for one of our colder nights, with the low 20s commonplace, and the teens for folks that go to bed still with snow on the grass.

Sunshine is back in full for Tuesday, and temperatures will make it back into the 40s to near 50°, but that’s still a far cry from last week and it takes a lot longer to get used to extra chill compared to the warmth. Wednesday will remain likewise dry and seasonable, but with passing clouds overhead. Thursday starts off quietly enough, but things go downhill later in the day...

We’re tracking the development of another snow-maker for Thursday night, and though there’s still several days to see things solidify, it appears we’ll all be in the targeting sights rather than just a sliver of us. Folks that have to get out to work and school on Friday will have to keep a sharp eye on this one. After a very sluggish start to the winter season, the 2022 portion seems to be getting a lot more active.
