HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Any early sunshine clouds back over by lunchtime, as a weak ‘clipper’ system approaches. These things get their moniker by being a very quick mover, bringing light precipitation and exiting before too long tomorrow morning. Initially we’ll see some light snow showers graze our northern counties as temperatures are slowly rising into the 30s, then as we edge closer to 40° around the I-64 corridor it would be more like a drizzly rain. Many hours of the day will still be dry before that happens, but expect to go through a weak pass of light rain and snow between this afternoon and the overnight. Tonight we’ll be cooling back down below freezing, so we’ll look for light snow flurries to finish things off Tuesday morning. The US-50 corridor in the north and the mountains along and east of US-19 will end up with about 1″ or less of accumulation.

Tuesday itself will still be working to shed any morning clouds and flurries, but even as we get back to partly sunny skies in the afternoon the temperatures will be dropping back through the 30s. Tuesday night will end up back into those chilly teens (and colder where clearer), but many folks may be pleased to experience a quieter stretch of weather. Most wont see a drop of precipitation from there until Friday. The pick of the week weather-wise currently looks like Thursday, with sunshine and highs back to around 40° (I know, not much, but we’ll take it).

Friday and Saturday bear some watching, as another strong storm system is projected to churn up the east coast. As of now, we appear to be sitting this one out, keeping the heaviest rain and snow to others to our east, however it won’t be a complete miss, as some light snow will nevertheless be in the area. As with last week’s storm that loomed and then missed us, things can always change with new days and new model runs, and there’s a lot of time between now and then.
