This morning in Huntington at 7:30AM it’s currently 26 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 92%, dewpoint 24, barometric pressure 30.25”. We have 20.5” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was a splendid 41, and the overnight low was 23.
Above normal temperatures will continue today and Wednesday as a west to southwesterly airflow pattern brings warmer air into the region. Dry weather is expected today, but there may be a few mountain snow showers on Wednesday as a weak trough of low pressure passes just to our north. We’ll see partly sunny skies today with highs in the mid 40s and south winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 30s and southwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
Wednesday should be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain or snow showers in the morning, then partly sunny with a slight chance of rain showers in the afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 40s with west winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. Wednesday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 20s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 35 mph.
