This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently -3 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 86%, dewpoint -6, barometric pressure 30.18″ and rising. We picked up a dusting of snow overnight and have 4.5″ on the ground. 24hr high was 13, low -3.
We’ll see partly sunny skies this morning giving was to mostly cloudy skies with a chance of snow showers this afternoon as quick cold front moves through generating upslope snow showers along the western slopes of the Greens. Highs today will be around 13 with light and variable winds, becoming northwesterly around 10 mph this afternoon. Chance of snow is 30%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a chance of snow showers until midnight, then mostly clear after midnight. Lows will be around -3 below with northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of snow is 40% with total accumulations of a dusting to 2″.
High pressure will build in Sunday bringing sunny skies with highs around 12 and light and variable winds. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows around zero and light and variable winds.
Monday should be cloudy with a 50% chance of snow as an upper level disturbance associated with a surface warm front moves into the region. It will be warmer with highs in the upper 20s and south winds around 10 mph. Monday night snow is likely with light snow accumulation possible. Lows will be in the lower 20s. Chance of snow is 60%.
At this point the forecast is putting us on the warm side of an upcoming storm system moving out of the southwest that should arrive Tuesday. “Wintery mix” is the best I can do at this point, but, unfortunately, it’s looking like the “R” word will be involved Wednesday for a period…
