HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The morning hours again provided a bit of an opening to be able to run the errands, with that sauna-like feel largely dormant save for a few isolated showers. Once we cross midday, enough surface-heating will have taken place to trigger cloud development and soon-after those showers and storms. A slow-moving front has been triggering these throughout the week as it slid southward through the Ohio Valley, but today it is stretched right across the Tri-State focusing the risks in our area. A Flood Watch exists through midnight, but the afternoon will be of special concern. Temperatures today will stay in the 70s and 80s, owing to the prevalence of afternoon rain compared to yesterday.

The rain and rumbles will slide southward tonight, but there will still be some leftovers in the area tomorrow morning. Nevertheless, we’re turning the corner toward better weather. Expect breaking clouds and sunshine for Thursday afternoon, and temperatures staying in the comfortable lower 80s. One last front will drop in late Thursday, but this is a much weaker front. It will actually be a welcome sight, because despite the isolated showers along the front it be just the thing to chase out the last of the humidity around here and give us some of our best days this weekend.

Not since June have we seen morning temperatures in the cozy 50s. Get ready. This weekend will feature plentiful sunshine by day (including Friday), with that campfire-type evening and mornings to go around. This is just in time for peak county fair season as well as the ‘last’ weekend for many students out there before heading out to elementary schools through colleges next week. Make those plans now!
