HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The Sun shines brightly today, and that morning fog burned off fairly quickly. Temperatures are set to run, though will stay in a comfortable range at least through Midday, having worked from the 50s through the upper 70s. We’ll keep going this afternoon, with near cloud-free skies. Highs will hit the mid 80s, about five degrees warmer than yesterday. The light breeze and low humidity will keep this increase manageable, but have the sunblock handy. Once the sun sets (one of the latest days of the year by the way, right next to 9pm), the temperatures again turn quite pleasant, great for taking in the late innings of the Dirty-Birds game or coming home from evening church services.

Thursday will also present a good amount of sunshine as well, with highs inching up further, now creeping to the 90-degree mark. An unfortunate side-effect of having some of our best weather during the middle of the week is that it then doesn’t bode well for the weekend. We’ll start with some sunshine on Friday, but with that noticeable increase in humidity. Eventually a few of those ‘pop-up’ showers and storms will form, which for some may be ‘good-ish’ because it would cool down an otherwise hot day of 90+ temperatures, but of course this is the weekend of the Charleston Regatta and about everything else on this Holiday slate. No one wants rain this weekend. Nevertheless, here’s how it currently looks like it’s going to go: Each day we’ll have hours of sunshine, enough to get things done but also see temperatures head for the 90-degree mark; Each day we’ll also be tracking some showers and thunderstorms, of the hit-or-miss variety. They will mainly favor the afternoon hours, and provide a cool-down, but that still won’t make the trade-off that desirable if it rains on your outdoor event. This is something we’re going to continue to monitor, in hopes for better clarity and frankly for better openings for a more certain sunshine.
