This morning in Huntington at 6:50AM it’s currently 59 degrees under mostly clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 94%, dewpoint 57, barometric pressure 29.82”. Yesterday’s high was 82, and the overnight low was 59.
A large-scale upper level low just north of the Great Lakes this morning will remain the primary weather maker for our region through Thursday as it moves slowly eastward and gradually weakens over time. An associated cold front is crossing our region this morning, kicking off showers to our south. The forecast calls for cloudy skies (though I don’t see ’em…) with a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms this morning, then partly sunny skies with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 70s with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 30%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s and light and variable winds.
Wednesday should be partly sunny with a 30% chance of showers in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70s with light and variable winds. Wednesday night should be partly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers. Lows will be in the mid 50s with light and variable winds.
Thursday’s looking partly sunny with a 40% chance of showers. Highs will be in the lower 70s with west winds around 10 mph. Thursday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 50s.

About Today’s Photo:
Periodically through the day, a chatter of chickadees will move into the spruce trees in our front yard to feed on the cones. They’re often joined by titmice and warblers.
