This morning in Huntington at 6:50AM it’s currently 45 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the southwest at 0-4 mph. Relative humidity is 92%, dewpoint 45, barometric pressure 29.92” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.40” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 75, and the overnight low was 45.
A secondary cold front crossing the region from the northwest early this morning will bring scattered rain showers to the northern mountains and a few valley sprinkles. High pressure will build in behind the departing front bringing clearing skies later this morning. Despite afternoon sunshine, the combination of northwest winds and a dry Canadian air mass will keep temperatures cooler than in recent days with highs generally in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
We’ll see cloudy skies this morning with a 20% chance of showers this morning, then partly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 50s with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph. Tonight should be clear and seasonably chilly with lows in the mid 30s and north winds 10 to 15 mph.
Thursday should be sunny with highs in the mid 60s and northwest winds around 10 mph. Thursday night should be clear with lows in the upper 30s and west winds around 10 mph.

About Today’s Photo:
The view of Camel’s Hump from Bald Hill is quite spectacular. Robin & I bushwhacked our way to the top last Sunday and were treated this lovely view of springtime green making its way into the higher elevations.
