HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - We’re expecting to stay dry despite the occasional cloud cover, seeing temperatures reach into the low 60s this afternoon. This is about 10-degrees cooler than average, but in real terms, the low 60s are typically comfortable enough if you’re getting out there and doing physical activity. We’re entering the time of year where even the cooler days are nice -- and soon enough it will only be those cooler days are nice. The athletes on the field will love it, but those in the stands will probably long for the jacket. This will be only more pronounced tonight as we wind our way back through the 50s and 40s.

Friday will edge closer toward clouds, and we’ll try to hold off showers as long as possible, but it will be a losing battle. If you don’t get a stray shower by the afternoon, expect a few to come by that evening and overnight. Saturday starts with the scattered showers, and looks to see them ease on out of here for a bit of a breather for the afternoon and evening hours. This would be most advantageous, as there are a number of high school Proms going on then. Temperatures continue their slow warming trend, now edging toward the 70s by May 1st (on Sunday). Scattered showers will still loom on Sunday unfortunately, as this weekend will not be as glorious as the last one. Back to work and school next week will maintain that milder air, but our next rain-maker lurks Tuesday night into Wednesday. Those resultant flowers had better be gorgeous.
