HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The day started quietly enough across the Tri-State, with most getting to work and school without any trouble. A front is arriving though, with clouds and scattered showers set to come through. They will stay patchy, with snippets of sunshine breaking through the lulls, but a rumble of thunder can’t be ruled out in some of the stronger bursts. High temperatures will rise to the lower 80s in any peak of afternoon sunshine, but hold in the 70s during the clouds and/or rain. Much of the rain will fade to the east after dark, though an isolated shower can still linger. Temperatures tonight will sag back into the 60s before dawn tomorrow.

The front advancing today’s showers will weaken and dissipate without fully progressing through. As it wears out, sunshine will gradually regain the skies tomorrow (following some morning fog / low-clouds). Temperatures will respond notedly, pushing into the mid-80s Tuesday, with 90° lining up for Wednesday (the last day of summer). Before we end up with another heat wave on our hands though, another front will be sweeping through on Thursday, ushering in fall conditions right on schedule. This one can be a little breezy, and potentially a little rumbly, as a change of the seasons drops by. While Wednesday’s highs will reach near 90°, after Thursday’s passing rains Friday will struggle to even get out of the 60s. Fall will be in the air during those high school football games. We do moderate a little bit this coming weekend, with highs in the comfortable 70s and lows near 50°.
