First Warning Forecast | Couple opportunities for rain this Thanksgiving weekend
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Black Friday saw light showers across the region during the morning hours as a cold front crossed. This broke an extended dry stretch, but the rain is in the process of ending. Friday afternoon turns drier as the sky begins to clear out. This bodes well for high school football playoff games. Saturday also looks good in between systems because Sunday sees another opportunity for rain along with gusty winds. More rain is then possible around the middle of next week with up-and-down temperatures.
Lingering drizzle lasts through early Friday afternoon across southern and eastern parts of the region. Otherwise, expect dry conditions with a gradual clearing/brightening trend from north to south. High temperatures rise to the upper 50s with a northwest breeze.
On Saturday, expect dry conditions all day under a mix of sun and high clouds. High temperatures reach the upper 50s again.
Sunday turns active as an area of low pressure passes nearby. This brings showers and strong winds that will occasionally gust up to 40 mph.
After a few lingering showers early Monday, the rest of the day turns drier but stays mostly cloudy and cool as high temperatures hover near 50 degrees.
Expect a mostly sunny sky on Tuesday with high temperatures near 60 degrees.
Showers are likely again Tuesday night into Wednesday. Afternoon temperatures on Wednesday rise to near 60 degrees.
Bold sunshine returns on Thursday, but high temperatures only rise to the mid 40s.
