HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - There wasn’t as much fog this morning, and temperatures were a touch milder than the cooler starts we had the other days this week. This would put us on a quicker path to the 70s -- except that it won’t happen courtesy of an approaching cold front set to swing through around lunchtime. As it passes, winds will switch to around the northwest, and colder air will be rushing in. Temperatures will initially hit the 60s, but then fall back through the 50s in the afternoon. Clouds will spring up, and a few showers with them, but there’s not a whole lot of moisture to work with here. We’re expecting any showers that are out there to fade out around kick-off time, but anyone heading to the football games should layer up-- many games will begin in the 50s and finish in the upper 40s. Cooling will continue through the night under patchy clouds, bottoming out as low as the upper 30s Saturday morning.

Sunshine works back in Saturday afternoon, and the skies will ‘look’ great both Saturday and Sunday, but those temperatures are going to take some getting used to. Highs Saturday will stay in the 50s, and Sunday’s highs will barely get into the 60s. Sunday morning features the coldest air we’ve had thus far this season. Frost and Freeze bulletins have already been posted by the National Weather Service, as temperatures will drop to the mid-30s virtually region-wide. Even with that, most will be of the opinion that it’s still better than the 1″- 3″ of rain we saw courtesy of Ian’s remnants last weekend.

We come out of the basement on Monday, seeing continued sunshine stage a bit of a rally. Highs will get back to the 70s Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. That rally will again be brief,
