The heat makes a return
Mostly dry this week with the heat making a comeback late this weekend
**Due to numerous and ongoing wildfires out west we will still see some haze in the sky from time to time. Right now nothing looks to be hazy enough to affect air quality but until the fires are under control, this will continue likely for at least several more weeks if not longer.**
THURSDAY: Comfortable and refreshing to start to the day with temperatures rising into the 60s early. Plenty of sunshine with some clouds building in for the afternoon and a warmer day with highs in the low to mid 80s. A weak upper level piece of energy will swing through the area today, which will set off a couple of isolated showers or even a storm for the afternoon and early evening. Most of this should start across our West Virginia areas but some will drift into the Valley. This may keep West Virginia locations in the upper 70s to near 80, especially if they develop in the late morning hours. Overall, a nice summer day with a few showers and storms for the afternoon, but activity will not be widespread.
