HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The drizzly din this morning was met with temperatures sinking below the freezing mark, instigating some slick spots on the bridges and overpasses. The clouds will be slow to break today, but even where the sunshine sneaks back in we’ll see temperatures struggle to get any warmer given the continuing influx of chilly northerly breezes. We’ll stay in the lower 30s this afternoon, then dropping back through the 20s this evening.

How cold we get tomorrow morning will have a lot to do with how much cloud cover you have overhead. Places that clear out, particularly in the north where a snow-pack lingers, we can sneak in some frigid single-digit weather, but those under a blanket of low level clouds will hold closer to the 20°-mark. Either way, much colder than even this morning was. Sunshine gradually returns Wednesday and sticks around through much of Thursday as we enjoy a little quiet spell of weather. Thursday afternoon will even sneak us toward 40°, offering some more snowmelt.

Friday becomes another one to watch though, as a large and powerful winter storm looks to brew once more and churn its way up the eastern seaboard. It currently appears we’re in line for a grazing by this system, offering a lighter snow compared to the heavy snow for folks east of the Appalachians. There’s still several days to keep an eye on this one, but more and more folks have said they wouldn’t mind sitting one of these out.
