HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A system will be traversing the Appalachian mountain chain today, dragging some ‘garden-variety’ rains through much of the day, hoping to fade off to the east before the too long this afternoon. If there was a spot that could manage to avoid the rain today, it would be areas into Ohio. Clouds will certainly drape everywhere, but most of the rain will be in the southern and eastern counties. As the rain exits, clouds will hang in tonight, still there to greet us tomorrow morning.

Clouds gradually try to break on Tuesday, with the day “mainly” dry. We’re expecting most hours of the day to end up rain-free, but a few isolated showers should still leak through. Wednesday will be much the same way, scattering in a few showers and storms but most hours are just fine. Temperatures will inch back up in any periods of sunshine, getting back to the 70s tomorrow, and the 80s on Wednesday. But before being worried about those 90s coming back, we’ve got another storm system that will swing through Thursday into Friday morning. This will be a little concerning for outdoor events (if there are graduations and/or parties, playoff baseball/softball games, etc.), but it will do wonders for the upcoming weekend. Often if you want a good weekend of weather, you’ll want the rain to come through on Thursday. As it happens, we’re expecting to get back into the sunshine by Saturday, and holding onto it at least through Sunday, if not Memorial Day itself. Of course, there’s still plenty of time to see things change, but we’re definitely off to a good start in that department.
