HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Friday will be the brightest day of the long weekend ahead with sunshiny skies and highs in the upper 70s. Friday night starts the Vandalia Gathering in Charleston and the Festival of Flags in Oak Hill Ohio with night 2 of Memory Days in Grayson. The weather will be fine all evening long and into tomorrow morning as well.

Saturday, we increase clouds but hold any rain off until late at night. Highs will be in the 70s.

By Sunday rain will advance north from the coastal Carolinas reaching the Coalfield region overnight then take a stab at the I-64 zone by dawn. Odds favor a soaking half inch to inch of rain over a 6 hour period from Pineville to Beckley with less amounts of s shorter duration along I-64. The farther one travels into Ohio and Central WV the less likely anything more than a few showers falls.

Monday as the rain pulls away any area that starts wet should trend drier, If that occurs that would leave the Ironton parade dry, BUT THAT IS JUST SPECULATION at this point.

So fasten your seatbelts for a tough weather forecasting weekend ahead and double check our latest at or on the APP.
