HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Today being first of June, let’s talk summer! Temperatures this morning started off comfortably enough, but hours of sunshine will send us incrementally hotter this afternoon, going from the 50s and 60s to the mid-80s. Most of us will end up dry again on the day, but we’ll watch for one or two pop-up showers in the mountains later this afternoon. It won’t be until after sunset when temperatures get comfortable again, but anyone heading out late tonight will be well-pleased with the 70s hanging on to just about midnight.

Friday will position itself like just another day in the cycle, with comfortable morning temperatures turning to afternoon heat in the dominant sunshine. Highs on Friday now approach 90-degrees as the lawn and garden start asking for some rain. It’s kind of a Catch-22 though, because the weekend’s coming and no one wants rain on yet another weekend. Friday looks to stay dry, but a wave of cooler air will be rushing down through New England, reaching us with a leading band of clouds on Saturday afternoon. Though Saturday will still have enough sunshine to get us up to near 90°, don’t be surprised to sneak a few scattered showers from north to south later in the day. This push of cold air will be notable in New England, holding many to just the 50s for high temperatures this weekend, but we’ll be able to stay just far enough afield of it to still make it to the 80s. After just a few showers poking around for part of the day Sunday (not a lot), we’ll be back to rain-free skies early next week. That, combined with a little cool-down means we’ve still got some pretty good weather ahead to enjoy.
