This morning in Huntington at 6:35AM it’s currently 52 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 51, barometric pressure 29.96″ and rising. We picked up 0.01″ of rain in the past 24hrs. 24hr high was 71, low 48.
We’re finally rid of the low pressure system that’s been dominating our weather for the past several days. However, a slow moving upper level trough will give us another day pretty similar to what’s gone before. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers this morning, then partly sunny skies with a chance of showers this afternoon. Highs will be around 70 with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 40%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a chance of showers until midnight. Lows will be around 50 with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 30%.
Friday should start out partly sunny. However, potent jet stream winds aloft will interact with surface instability and diurnal warming in the afternoon to produce showers and thunderstorms. Some storms my produce gusty winds and hail. Highs will be in the lower 70s with south winds around 10 mph becoming westerly in the afternoon. Chance of rain is 60%. Friday night showers and thunderstorms are likely. Lows will be in the upper 40s with northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 60%.
Saturday’s looking partly sunny as a cold front moves from Canada. Highs will be around 70 with northwest winds around 10 mph. Saturday night should be mostly clear with lows in the upper 40s.
