HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - After a noticeably chilly start to the day, the clear/dry air of the morning turns into the sunny/warm air of the afternoon. A nice southerly breeze kicks in to ensure the point, as some of us can see temperatures moving as much as 40 degrees from the morning to the afternoon. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to declare a sunny Friday in the 70s, but here we are. Make the most of it, as clouds will stream on in to finish the day. We’ll still expect dry and comfortable weather for the night-cap, but showers are approaching, and will be in town before dawn on Saturday.

Saturday’s weather ends up being a bit of a downer for outdoor fun, but it’s not going to be all bad. Scattered showers will be out there from the morning on into the early afternoon, but eventually sunshine works back in from the west before the end of the day. Temperatures will sneak back into the mid 60s before sunset, a respectable finish. In the clearing skies of the overnight though, the chill returns, putting us in the mid 30s by the time those Easter “Sonrise” services take shape. It’s worth making some clothing adjustments in that kind of chill, but don’t worry-- the afternoon will have enough sunshine for some good picture-taking. Even if highs stay in the 50s on Sunday, the sunshine this time of year becomes quite an assist.

A look ahead to next week, and it is rather... ugly. Again. We’ll be tracking another cold-pool system, set to drop showers and temperatures across the Tri-State. The rain will fall with temperatures largely in the 40s on Monday, then can even mix in some snowflakes early Tuesday morning. Next week will stay cooler-than-average on the whole, but we’re hoping for better prospects by the second-half of the week.
