The overnight low temperature came in at 44 degrees which was two degrees warmer than the forecast low temperature of 42 degrees. Friday was mostly sunny which was just a bit off the forecast that called for partly cloudy conditions. The high temperature in Charleston came in at 72 degrees which hit the forecast high temperature right on the money. Huntington's high temperature was 73 degrees. Neither city reported any precipitation.

    One Final Note: Thursday's high temperature was only 59 degrees with the persistent clouds and showers. The only reason it was even that high was because that was the temperature at midnight before the coolest air started to move

in over the region, as temperatures during the afternoon were running in the lower to middle 50s. It was the coolest high temperature in Charleston since back on April 25th when the mercury only made it to 50 degrees!
