This morning in Huntington at 6:30AM it’s currently 39 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 39, barometric pressure 30.00”. We picked up an additional 0.03” of rain yesterday morning. Yesterday’s high was 64, and the overnight low was 39.
High pressure will deliver a mostly sunny day today with seasonably cool highs in the mid 60s and light and variable winds. Tonight should be partly cloudy until midnight, then become mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers after midnight as a reinforcing cold front sags southward out of Canada. Lows will be in the lower 40s with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 20%.
Thursday should start off mostly cloudy with a chance of showers in the morning, then become partly sunny in the afternoon as high pressure builds back in. Highs will only be in the lower 50s—a good 10 to 15 degrees below seasonal averages—with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 30%. Thursday night should be clear and cold with lows around 30 and north winds 10 to 15 mph. Expect widespread frost and a hard freeze overnight.
Friday’s looking sunny and cool with highs only in the mid 50s to around 60 with light and variable winds. Friday night should be mostly clear and not as cold with lows in the lower 40s.
