HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The morning chill seems to be about as expectable as Death and Taxes the last couple of weeks, but each afternoon we’ve also been getting a couple degrees warmer than the day before it. Right on schedule, today’s wall-to-wall sunshine will put temperatures in the upper 50s. It’ll be near-perfect conditions for travelers and for those staying home making those last-minute preparations. Keep in mind though, that the temperatures still cool off quickly after sunset, so folks heading out to the debut of the new city park lighting extravaganzas (for example in Gallipolis and Point Pleasant) will need to layer back up. We’ll be back down near the upper 20s and lower 30s when the early Turkey Trotters get ready for the starting gun Thanksgiving morning.

Thanksgiving itself continues the pattern for one more day. We’ll actually have a few clouds departing the scene in the morning, but the afternoon still features sunshine and now high temperatures sneaking into the low 60s. This will be the warmest we’ll see this week, great news for those who want to spend the Thanksgiving afternoon outside, whether it’s tossing around the football or getting some family pictures together. New clouds arrive in the evening, and showers will spread through before dawn on Friday. Early shoppers looking for those doorbuster specials will need to have an answer for the rain Friday morning, but that rain does look like it’s going to be exiting to the east in the afternoon. Highs Friday slide back into the 50s.

Saturday sneaks in a fairly decent day, with a mix of clouds and sunshine and highs in the 50s. Football fans of both the college and high school circuit will enjoy some problem free skies, but unfortunately our Sunday takes the leftovers. Yet another system comes through, bringing a good amount of soggy weather for folks traveling back to the Tri-State. Be advised.
