This morning in Huntington at 7:15AM it’s currently a brisk 23 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 87%, dewpoint 20, barometric pressure 30.24” and rising. We picked up a 0.25” dusting of snow in the past 24hrs and have about an inch of snow on the ground. Yesterday’s high was 35, and the overnight low was 21.
High pressure is currently building into the region and will help to deliver cool and dry conditions for the next 36 hours or so. We’ll see partly sunny skies this morning becoming clear later in the day. Highs will only be in the lower 30s with northwest winds around 10 mph. Tonight should be mostly clear until midnight, then become mostly cloudy. Lows will be in the lower 20s with light and variable winds, becoming southerly around 10 mph after midnight.
A cold front will be moving into the Great Lakes early Sunday bringing cloudy skies and slight chance of snow showers in the morning, then a slight chance of rain or snow showers in the afternoon.

The aforementioned low will move across the region Monday along with a coastal low moving up the New England seaboard.
