This morning in Huntington at 8:30AM it’s currently 20 degrees and snizzling lightly under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 94%, dewpoint 18, barometric pressure 30.17” and rising. We picked up 2.50” of new snow in the past 24hrs and have 22” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 23 (at midnight) and the overnight low was 8.
A warm southerly airflow out ahead of the next blast of cold Arctic high pressure will help to push temperatures up into the low 30s today. We’ll see partly sunny skies with a 20% chance of snow showers this afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 30s with light and variable winds. The cold front will move through overnight with mostly cloudy skies and lows around -3 below with west winds 10 to 15 mph.
Monday should be partly sunny with highs only around 3 above with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Wind chill values could be as low as -27 below. Monday night will be partly cloudy and cold with lows around -12 below and west winds 10 to 15 mph.
Tuesday’s looking mostly cloudy and tad milder with highs around 15 and south winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Tuesday night should be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of snow showers as a clipper system slides by to our north. Lows will be around 10 above.
