First Warning Forecast | Showers On And Off, But At Least It’s Mild
Hard To Declare It Completely Dry Through At Least Thursday Morning.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Plentiful clouds and scattered showers covered the morning drive, with “humid” returning as a useful word to describe the day. A front has tried to push its way through today, but will end up getting stalled a bit across the southern Ohio Valley. Though we can’t completely rule out showers amidst this humidity, there will be more room for sunshine this coming afternoon. We’re expecting to get the home opener for the Reds in today, and afternoon practices locally will enjoy temperatures near 70°. Just watch out for that stray shower, and plan for some damp ground during practice. Skies will be mainly quiet overnight, but another round of clouds will advance by dawn Wednesday, and tomorrow we’ll be tracking another scattering of showers.
Tomorrow’s showers will favor the afternoon more than the morning hours, but it will still be on the humid side. Temperatures will spike into the 70s given any break for sunshine, particularly given the increase in southerly winds. A storm system cutting across the country will finally bring this to a head Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. This particular storm system will be responsible for severe weather in the middle of the country today and tomorrow, but fortunately for us it will come through in the morning hours Thursday, which usually presents a lower likelihood for severe weather.
Thursday afternoon will get us back into sunshine, and we finally look to keep it around more often than not this coming weekend. After a long string of less-than-stellar weekends weather-wise, we’re certainly due for a win. As of right now, just a few isolated showers are poking around on Saturday, otherwise, most hours of Friday through Easter Sunday will be rain-free. Let’s hope Monday’s rain next week stays in Monday and doesn’t speed up, because that one is a bit of a soaker.
