CHARLESTON, W.Va. — There’s going to be a noticeable change in West Virginia’s weather Thursday and Friday with the exiting of heat and humidity.

“(It will be) quite a difference in terms of the humidity. It’s going to be much drier and more pleasant,” National Weather Service Meteorologist Simone Lewis said.

It’s mostly been stuffy this week, a typical summer pattern with the heat providing energy for showers and thunderstorms. The storms have been widely scattered, Lewis said.

“Parts of eastern Kentucky and the southern coalfields have seen isolated locations of over two inches of rain but for the most part the showers and thunderstorms have been pretty hit and miss,” Lewis said.

The break in the weather won’t be long with heat and humidity to return this weekend with highs in the 90s.

“We’re definitely in a summer pattern and have been so for at least the last couple of weeks,” Lewis said.
