HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - There will be bands of rain and rumbles working through from southwest to northeast, with seams of warm breezy sunshine sliding in between. This will allow temperatures in any afternoon sunshine to spike into the 80s, but toward Ohio this won’t be everyone’s experience. There is a slight risk for severe weather too, so keep that in mind when heading out to the polls for the state primary. Our southern counties will fare more fortunately with the times of sunshine, but even there be careful for a line of showers and storms to still hang together later this afternoon and evening. Gusty winds and small hail are the main threats with these storms, though there’s also an outside shot at a tornado toward Ohio. The overall storm system instigating this thunder will itself come through overnight, leading to fading showers and lessening thunder. Clouds will still lay stubbornly around for a good bit of Wednesday, though there won’t be much rain.

Temperatures will stay ‘cool’ for Wednesday, but now that it’s May the cooler days aren’t really all that bad (we’ll be in the 60s for the most part). Thursday will be our next best day, with partly sunny skies and temperatures back into the 70s. Get all the lawnmowing in then while you can, because new rains and rumbles come in on Friday and stick around through a good bit of Saturday. Mothers probably won’t be all that happy with the weather on their weekend, but at least on Sunday we’ll be hoping for some afternoon improvement.
