HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The Sun will gradually get hazed over by clouds, but this definitely will be your best day to get out there and sample a taste of the kind of warmth we had spend weeks enjoying back in February. A storm system approaches this evening (we’ll stay dry until the overnight), and rain will be back in town before dawn on Friday.

Scattered showers will put a damper on your Saint Patrick’s Day, but we won’t be looking at a flooding rain. Much of the rain will occur during the first-half of your Friday, tapering off in the afternoon as the front fostering them crosses. A new airmass finishes the day, but unfortunately to us it will be more of the same: cold. Temperatures will walk back through the 50s and 40s Friday evening, even switching the last raindrops into snowflakes when things finish in the mountains early Saturday morning. This coming weekend will show quieter weather, but unfortunately more of that colder/wintry air. Temperatures by day will struggle in the 30s and 40s, and back into the 20s by night. Spring will officially start on Monday, but with more of the same. At least we’ll embark on a notable stretch of dry air that extends right through mid-week. Oftentimes we get a warming trend in that situation, but this one will be slow... Only getting us appreciably back in the 50s by Wednesday.
