HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Parts of the region saw an entire month’s worth of rain in just a few hours on Friday. As larger rivers continue to run high these next few days - but stay below flood stage - the good news is that no rain is in the forecast until next weekend. This extended dry stretch will be accompanied by decent sunshine and temperatures that progressively get warmer each day. Once the ground dries, it also looks like a good time to start work in the garden as no abnormally cold nights are expected.

Expect breaks in the clouds Saturday night as low temperatures fall to the mid 40s. Some fog is possible, particularly in valleys where the breeze turns lighter.

Mother’s Day on Sunday stays dry under a partly cloudy sky. High temperatures rise to the upper 60s.

No rain is expected Monday through Friday. Each day will see a good deal of sunshine as high temperatures rise from the upper 70s Monday and Tuesday to the low 80s Wednesday through Friday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms return to the picture on Saturday under a partly cloudy sky. High temperatures rise to near 80 degrees.
