HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - I suppose if we had to make a deal to keep our Easter Sunday good weather-wise, we are certainly paying for it today. We tracked steady rain coming through this morning, and even as we get to the afternoon we’ll still be dealing with some scattered showers and murky clouds (but it will be less). Highs will struggle to even get to the 50s, dropping to the 30s overnight. Showers attempt to and for a bit overnight, but then the next batch of rain arrives early tomorrow. This time, at temperatures that chilly, some snowflakes will be in the mix. Ugh, in now late-April.

Areas in our north and east will be most vulnerable for flakes to actually stick tomorrow morning, but for the rest of us it will again be another annoying reminder of the squally weather we can still get around here. By Tuesday afternoon, we’ll be working sunshine back into the mix, but highs will again stay about 20-degrees cooler than where they should be this time of year (keeping us in the low 50s). Wednesday morning will begin quietly enough, but the potential exists for a frosty start... which now matters in some areas considering how far the early growing season has progressed.

Wednesday itself should be a decent respite from the chill of earlier in the week, with a dry afternoon and highs back to the mid 60s. Thursday drags some scattered showers through town, not exactly the best for the home opener for the Dirty Birds in Charleston. The current forecast for the upcoming weekend though should bring everyone outside. This would make up for a lot -- and it had better happen! We haven’t had a Friday-Sunday like this since last year, with highs in the 70s and 80s under dry sunshine. Sign me up!
