HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Take yesterday’s high temperatures and simply add a degree or two, and that’s where we’ll end up today. Despite the added heat, we’ll at least have some low humidity and a light northerly breeze, two things that help take the edge off (rather than enhance the heat, like humidity would). As we get to sunset, temperatures will slide back into a pleasant range, dropping back through the 70s during the concerts and into the 60s at bedtime. Early risers Saturday morning can still try to get a gander at the alignment of planets in the sky, but there will also be some nagging valley fog that spoils the view for some.

Sunshine will have us looking at the 90°-mark Saturday afternoon, with the humidity inching up a little. The heat of the day will spark a few isolated ‘pop-up’ storms, mainly in the southern mountains. Most of us will stay rain-free once again, making for a great day at the pool. Sunday itself will inch up again on both heat and humidity accounts, making this one feel like a more traditional ‘hazy-hot-humid’ day. True to form we’ll be tracking an approaching front later Sunday, which will then have us on our toes for the risks of thunderstorms again. Temperatures are expected to cool back down to the lower 80s on Monday, so our track record this year has said we will go through some rough weather as that transition is brought about.

Weather conditions will come back into a nice little space for a bit, with lows dipping toward the 50s and the afternoons in the 80s having that low humidity. It won’t be long before the sunshine pushes us back into the 90s mid-week. Such is summer so far in 2022.
