HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Despite a now-receding Ohio River and mostly sunny skies Monday, Tri-State residents’ reprieve from wet weather will be short-lived as Wednesday will bring another round of showers, which are expected to continue until the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Mike Kistner, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, said Huntington could see another 2 to 4 inches of rainfall in the next five to six days beginning Wednesday.
“As we head into the end of the week, we’re expecting several more waves of precipitation to come up and into the Ohio Valley area,” Kistner said.
In Huntington, Kistner said the water has started to recede very slowly after cresting at 53.14 feet around 1 p.m. Monday.
