HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Though we still started the morning in the 20s and 30s, it still was about 10-degrees milder than yesterday morning started. We’ll be using the hazy sunshine to our advantage today, along with the gathering southerly breeze, to help propel us toward the 50°-mark this afternoon. It’s not much of a warm-up, but it is our mildest day in a while (and will be for a while). Take this opportunity to get out there and stretch your legs, and those of your pets! After a nice and easy evening, temperatures will drop back into the 30s and 40s but hold there.

Any early sunshine will cloud back over on Thursday, eventually giving way to an approaching weather-maker later in the day. At first we’ll see some scattered light rain, with highs in the 40s, but then cool back down through the 30s, finishing with a few flurries early Friday morning. Not much is expected to come of this, but that’s not the end of our potential for snow just yet.

Saturday brings another quieter day, sandwiched between the system that departs and the next one that arrives on Sunday. The longer range modeling is still flipping and flopping with this system, but the most recent look at it now has it churning snow right up the Appalachian corridor, rather than missing us to the south. This would be another significant event for the West Virginia mountains should this solution hold, but it’s too unsettled to simply expect it to occur. Fortunately because of last week’s snow we don’t have to hunt around as much for our snow gear! Stay tuned...
