Morning Observation:

This morning in Huntington at 6:50AM it’s currently a blustery and rainy 48 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the southwest at 8-14 mph. Relative humidity is 90%, dewpoint 46, barometric pressure 29.62” and falling rapidly. We picked up 0.19” of rain overnight. Yesterday’s high was 51, and the overnight low was 38.

Forecast:

Low pressure currently out over the western Great Lakes will swing a warm front through our region today. We’ll see rain, mainly this morning, with highs in the upper 50s to near 60 along with gusty south winds 15 to 20 mph. Chance of rain near is 100%. Tonight should be cloudy with a chance of rain until midnight, then partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers after midnight. It’ll be breezy with lows in the lower 40s and southwest winds 15 to 25 mph gusting up to 35 mph. Chance of rain is 50%.

The aforementioned low will move northward towards James Bay by Tuesday dragging a cold front through our region and returning temperatures to more seasonable norms. We’ll see partly sunny skies in the morning, then mostly cloudy skies later in the day. Highs will be in the mid 40s with southwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Tuesday night should be cloudy with lows in the upper 20s and west winds 10 to 15 mph.

A brief ridge of high pressure will move in early Wednesday before we begin to feel the effects of a coastal storm later in the day. We should see cloudy skies with a 40% chance of snow and highs in the mid 30s with light and variable winds. Wednesday night should be cloudy with a 50% chance of snow. Lows will be in the mid 20s. At this point it looks like this coastal storm will impact mostly the southern and eastern parts of our forecast area, with only a quarter to half-inch of snow expected in our area. Stay tuned!

About Today’s Photo:

We have a cardinal pair in regular rotation at our feeders this season as well. This bright male was waiting patiently for the gluttonous bluejays to clear out…
