HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Afternoon temperatures this past weekend cruised well into the 80s, and today will be much the same, though it will not finish the same. A cold front is slowwwwly approaching, that will spell the end of the line of this wonderful preview of summery air. Until it gets here, we’ll benefit from those same warm southerly breezes of the weekend. Once it crosses, expect periods of rain, some rumbles, and then a noticeable cooldown beyond. There is a risk for a stronger thunderstorm in the mix as well given the contrast between the two air masses and the mid-afternoon timing in our western counties. We’ll be back down into the lower 50s tomorrow morning, with the leftover clouds and remnant showers stubbornly hanging around.

The winds will be out of the northwest tomorrow, and the briskness will keep the pressure on those temperatures to stay cool, and on the skies to stay cloudy. We’ll eventually break back out to sunshine, but it could take a good chunk of the afternoon to pull it off. High temperatures will struggle just to get back to the lower 60s, and then sink back into the upper 30s by Wednesday morning. The Wednesday-Friday timeframe ends up being rather quiet, but staying cool. You may even need to have to bring in the plants.

Temperatures gradually bump back to the low 70s this weekend, but it won’t be as good as this past weekend. We’ll be tracking another system set to swing through, bringing another round of rain and rumbles.
