This morning in Huntington at 6:10AM it’s currently 60 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are out of the west at 0-3 mph. Relative humidity is 85%, dewpoint 55, barometric pressure 29.90” and rising slowly. We picked up 0.37” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 82, and the overnight low was 56.
Drier more tranquil weather will be the rule through the rest of the week thanks to a drier northwesterly airflow and high pressure. We’ll see mostly sunny skies today with highs in the mid 70s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms until midnight, then a 20% chance of showers after midnight as a weak embedded shortwave trough slides by to our north. Lows will be in the mid 50s with west winds 10 to 15 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Thursday should be partly sunny with a 20% chance of showers in the afternoon as a weak cold front slides through. Highs will be in the mid 70s with west winds around 10 mph, becoming northwesterly in the afternoon. Thursday night should be mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 50s and north winds around 10 mph.
Friday’s looking partly sunny with highs in the mid 70s and north winds around 10 mph. Friday night should be mostly clear with lows in the lower 50s.
