HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Afternoon highs will still make it to the low 80s, but showers and storms will begin to spring up. Those showers will be scattered in nature, and will track westward toward the Ohio River later in the day. Folks in our westernmost counties have the best shot at staying dry, but others (especially east) will need to be prepared in the case of a shower if they’re going to be outside for several hours in a row-- thinking golfers and anglers. After sunset, most of these same scattered showers will fade, but the humidity will remain in place, ready to go for the weekend.

We’ll be tracking more scattered showers and storms on both Saturday and Sunday, mainly favoring the afternoon hours but can pop in at any time. There will be more dry hours than wet ones, so folks that need to sneak in that 5k run or trip to the festival can be able to get it done just fine (particularly if you use our free weather app), but if you have a need to see things dry for 4 or more hours in a row (thinking graduation parties, weddings, etc.) then those are the kinds of things where it’s going to be more of a challenge. By the time Sunday’s done, all of us should have seen at least a little rain, but if you get caught in one of those thunderstorms you can end up with a quick inch of rain for the lawns and gardens out there.

Monday will see the rain risks continue, but for a different reason-- We’ll finally get one of those ‘normal’ west-to-east moving systems to come across the region and hope to wring out the rest of the humidity overhead to cut us a break. Expect periods of rain to swing through, leading to some quieter skies on Tuesday.
