HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Brief snippets of sunshine will be out there to the south this afternoon, but a cooling northwest winds will continue to encourage cloud formation, and help keep temperatures in the 60s for the bulk of the day. Though that’s 20-degrees cooler than yesterday, now that we’re in May, the cooler days aren’t really all that bad. High pressure weakly slides into place this afternoon and evening, allowing for some thinning of the clouds. Temperatures tonight will dip down into the lower 50s tonight, indicating the presence of drier air.

Thursday will end up a pretty-good day. Sunshine asserts more of itself in the afternoon, allowing temperatures to rise back into the 70s. This will be a great day to take care of the lawn and garden, as rain lurks in the days beyond-- even approaching around sunset Thursday. Our next storm system will be a slow-mover, continuing to bring periods of showers and storms Friday into Saturday, certainly putting a damper on the whole “Mother’s Day Weekend” idea. All told between the two days, about an inch to inch and an half of rain is headed in. On Mother’s Day itself we’re expecting some improving skies, particularly in the afternoon. The best skies look to break back in next week, with sunshine for Monday and Tuesday, with highs back toward the 80s.
