Few Showers Overnight...Mostly Dry Through The Rest Of The Week

A weak cold front will move through the region tonight which will make for mostly cloudy skies along with some rain showers that will fall in the early morning hours Tuesday. Most areas will pick up a tenth of an inch or less rainfall with an overnight low temperature of 57 degrees.
    Tuesday will see the showers end early with skies becoming mostly cloudy and dry in the afternoon. The high temperature will make it to 72 degrees. Wednesday will be partly cloudy and dry as high pressure builds into the region. The high temperature will warm a bit to 74 degrees.
    Thursday will be partly cloudy and dry as high pressure strengthens over the region. The high temperature will warm again to 75 degrees. Friday will be mostly cloudy but dry as a weak warm front moves through the region. The high temperature will warm to 79 degrees despite the additional clouds as warmer air moves in behind the front.
    The weekend will start off with partly cloudy skies along with dry conditions as high pressure again remains in control over the region. The high temperature will warm to 81 degrees as a warm air mass remains in place ahead of an approaching cold front. The front will move in on Sunday for mostly cloudy skies along with scattered showers and thunderstorms. The high temperature will drop just a bit to 80 degrees with the clouds and showers.
    Monday will start out with a few morning rain showers that will taper off to mostly cloudy skies later in the day as the cold front moves away from the region. The high temperature will drop to 75 degrees with the clouds, showers and cooler air moving in behind the front. Tuesday will be partly cloudy and dry as high pressure starts to move in behind the departing cold front. The high temperature will warm slightly to 76 degrees.
    Wednesday will be partly cloudy and dry as high pressure strengthens over the region. The high temperature will warm again to 78 degrees. Thursday will see partly cloudy skies along with dry conditions as high pressure will again be the region's dominant weather feature. The high temperature will warm slightly to 79 degrees.

    A quick look back at the weekend's forecast shows that skies were mostly cloudy after morning rain showers that were expected across the region with a cold front moving through. Sunday was mostly cloudy and dry as forecast. The high temperature for both days came in a little cooler than forecast, with both days not making it to 70 degrees for the afternoon high temperature. Monday's high temperature was 72 degrees in Charleston while Huntington topped out at 73 degrees. Neither city reported any precipitation.

    Tonight: Skies will be mostly cloudy with rain showers moving in late, more than likely well after midnight. The overnight low temperature will be 57 degrees.
