This morning in Huntington at 6:45AM it’s currently 56 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 56, barometric pressure 30.12”. Yesterday’s high was 84, and the overnight low was 56.
Departing high pressure will put us on into a southerly airflow today which will ratchet up the heat and humidity a bit more than yesterday. We’ll see sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s and light and variable winds, becoming southwesterly around 10 mph this afternoon. Tonight should be mostly clear until midnight, then become partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after midnight as a cold front approaches.
