HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Under hazy sunshine and clouds, we’ll end up sneaking to the lower 60s this afternoon; not bad for February without bold sunshine. Meanwhile, showers are developing to our north and west. The breezes will hold them off as long as they can, but eventually they will be dropping in this evening and overnight (our northernmost counties first). We’re not talking about a heavy rain, but some showers nonetheless.

Scattered showers and hours-long lulls will be the story of the day Wednesday. We’ll still be wading through a bunch of clouds, with temperatures holding in the mid-50s. The main batch of rain comes Wednesday night and Thursday, even serving to keep the temperatures in the 50s overnight Wednesday before surging them back through the 60s under some pretty fresh breezes. Even Thursday won’t feature an all-day rain, but will still be our wettest day. Friday brings a dial-back in the skies, partly sunny and relatively peaceful. Saturday gets interesting again, as a coastal storm forms, dragging colder air back across the local area, putting snow back in the mix. As it stands now, ‘in the mix’ is probably the best phrase for it in the lowlands. With temperatures in the mid-to-upper 30s Saturday, we’ll have to allow some chilly rain during the midday hours. Meanwhile, the ski resorts will get another weekend of great ski conditions, adding both man-made and natural snow just in time following a week of (for them anyway) less than desirable (warmer) weather.
