HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - We enjoyed pockets of sunshine this morning, as clouds gradually streamed in from the west. Though most hours of the day today will end up rain-free, a few showers will pop up this afternoon. Temperatures will hold in the low to mid-50s today, about 10-degrees cooler than yesterday. Skies will gradually clear out overnight, and as that process completes temperatures will drop through the 30s. Wednesday will start with a frosty chill, but sunshine will help get us back into the upper end of the 50s.

A frontal system cuts across the Great Lakes Wednesday night, grazing us with clouds from the evening through the night. Most of the precipitation stays to the north, but folks near US-50 can see a quick shower overnight Wednesday (and snowflakes for the Canaan Valley). Whatever clouds lingering around Thursday morning, they will clear for some returning sunshine and a salvageable day. Highs will reach up around 60°, making for a pretty good Opening Day at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati-- yep, it’s nearing time to Play Ball!

Friday and Saturday will see a storm system cross overhead, unfortunately meaning rain in both days. We’ll try to hold off the showers as long as we can Friday morning, and finish them as quickly as we can Saturday afternoon, but those important time frames of Friday night and Saturday morning will be difficult to fix. Expect periods of rain, even a few rumbles of thunder. At this point, we’re not expecting a flooding rain, but a 1/2″ to 1″ of rain will be only good for the flowers. Saturday morning sports spectators take note. These showers will kick out in favor of a rapidly clearing Saturday night, but Sunday will open chilly as a result, with many in the 30s for that trip to Palm Sunday services. Not to worry though, afternoon family photoshoots should be okay in the pm sunshine.
