HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The early low clouds have hung tough so far, only recently beginning to show cracks in the armor. That process will continue this afternoon, bringing us to a pleasant finish to the day with sunshine. We’ve been tracking a few isolated showers passing along, but for the most part it’s been relatively brief and light (though certainly annoying at times). This same thing can happen this afternoon too, though we’re not concerned about the weather at end of the day. Expect gradual clearing and cooler temperatures for those prime time concerts and fair events. Highs will stay in the 75-80° range this afternoon, and cool back down through the 60s overnight under clearing skies. Folks headed out late might want to consider the long sleeves, as sunrise temperatures Thursday morning will begin around 60° with locally dense fog in the valleys.

Despite the early fog on Thursday, we’ll be heading to sunshine in the afternoon (more quickly than today, I might add). Highs will reach the seasonable mid 80s. Another system will quickly cut through Thursday night, passing a line of showers through the region. This rain will be about done-with Friday morning, with sunshine once again headed back into the afternoon. Temperatures will ascend, though stay in the lower 80s. Friday night will be a September shot across the bow at those campgrounds, with temperatures sinking deep into the 50s in the hollows. That kind of thought fades quickly though, as sunshine warms us back through the 80s. High pressure moves in and takes over, keeping sunshine boldly in place right into early next week. This will put temperatures back around 90° on Sunday, and into ‘heat-wave’ territory next week. All the more reason to take advantage of today (and Friday’s) temperatures, clouds or not.
