HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Sunshine again reigns supreme across the Tri-State (and indeed practically the entire eastern half of the country). Yesterday’s highs reached the upper 70s, and today we’ll be inching into the low 80s. That Sun will feel hot on the skin, yet the humidity will make any light breeze refreshing. The combination will make sunburns sneak in quickly, so consider that sunscreen if you’re going to be outside for longer than 30 minutes or so. It’s another great day to hang things out on the line, as we’ll still be in the 70s past sunset. With this low humidity continuing, we’ll be back into the upper 40s to start the day tomorrow.

High pressure still hangs around the Appalachian corridor through the middle of the week, keeping us up around the 80-degree mark, gradually getting the soil back to a ‘normal’ level of saturation. As you know the streak can’t last forever, we’ll be tracking our next rain-maker approaching on Friday. The interesting element about this next system is that it’s actually one we’ve already seen-- The same storm that brought the rain on Friday and Saturday is working back at us from the east. It’s a shell of it’s former self, but obviously we’ll be on our toes for patchy showers and storms. These will continue to hang around through Friday and Saturday. Sunday and Monday are also trending a little wet, but that’s from a different system finally coming in from the west to change the weather pattern to the ‘correct’ west-to-east flow. One thing that doesn’t change a whole lot are those temperatures, which will stay near the 80-degree mark right through the weekend.
