This morning in Huntington at 6:25AM it’s currently a brisk 6 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. A few light snowflakes are falling. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 86%, dewpoint 2, barometric pressure 30.26” and rising. We picked up 2” of light fluffy snow pretty much in one squall yesterday evening at around 6:15PM. We have 2” on the ground at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 24, and the overnight low was 6.
With the passage of the Arctic cold front overnight, we’re seeing much colder temperatures this morning. We’ll see partly sunny skies this morning, then mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow showers this afternoon as another low approaches from the Great Lakes. Highs will be only around 14 with northwest winds around 10 mph, becoming southwesterly this afternoon. Chance of snow is 20%. Tonight should be cloudy with snow showers likely, mainly after midnight. We could see snow accumulations of a dusting to 2″ with higher totals in the ‘Dack and higher elevation northern Greens. Lows will be around 9 above with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow is 60%.
Friday should be cloudy with snow showers likely in the morning, then partly sunny with a chance of snow showers in the afternoon. Total snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches are possible, again with higher totals in the ‘Dack and higher elevation northern Greens. Daytime highs will be around 14 with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph. Chance of snow is 60%. Surface high pressure will build in Friday night bringing partly cloudy skies and much colder temperatures with overnight lows from -3 to -9 and north winds around 10 mph.
Two low pressure systems—one from the Ohio River Valley and one making its way up the coast—will approach Saturday bring light snow during the day with little or no snow accumulation. Highs will be around 12 with light and variable winds. Chance of snow is 70%. Light snow will continue into Saturday night. Lows will be around 10 above. The coastal low will move up the coast going into Sunday and might deliver more snow to the region. Stay tuned!
