This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently 34 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 33, barometric pressure 30.18”. Snowpack is hanging in at 4”. Yesterday’s high was 42, and the overnight low was 30.
A ridge of high pressure will keep the region dry through the daylight hours today, before moving offshore this evening. A cold front will move in from the west bringing rain and snow showers tonight. Drier and colder air will filter in behind the cold front, kicking off a colder trend for the upcoming work week. We’ll see cloudy skies today with highs in the lower 40s and light and variable winds, becoming southwesterly around 10 mph this afternoon. Tonight should be cloudy with a 50% chance of rain showers. Lows will be in the upper 30s with southwest winds 15 to 20 mph.
Sunday should be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain showers in the morning. Highs will be around 40 with west winds 10 to 15 mph, becoming northwesterly in the afternoon.
