HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - This will be a little bump up from yesterday’s heat -- so if you thought the direct sunshine was hot yesterday, you had better be ready for the days ahead. This is a great time to just get into the summertime habits of staying extra hydrated, applying (and re-applying) sunscreen, and simply taking breaks inside the confines of good-ole air conditioning. Though most folks will end up rain-free today, we’ll be watching for a brief ‘pop-up’ shower in the eastern mountains near US-19. Even well-after sunset we’ll experience temperatures in the 70s (it gets comfortable again for that late-night out), before settling once again in the upper 50s to start tomorrow morning.

Thursday puts us right back in the same sunshine as today, and outside of another one of those brief/sneaky afternoon showers popping in the eastern mountains, the continued sunshine and drying ground will inch those temperatures up again, this time to the mid to upper 80s. Friday and Saturday will also end up sunny, as high pressure continues to keep things quiet. By then, we’ll have ascended far enough to talk 90°. This will be some great pool weather, just don’t forget to re-apply that sunscreen. There’s going to be another risk of an isolated shower between Saturday night and Sunday, but still enough sunshine to get us well into the 80s. Next week looks to extend those 80s for a few more days, but such is life in June, so perhaps we should just start expecting more of the same going forward.
