This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently a cool 37 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the northwest at 2-5 mph. Relative humidity is 78%, dewpoint 31, barometric pressure 30.21” and rising. Yesterday’s high was a balmy 67, and the overnight low was 36.
After a balmy day yesterday, a ridge of high pressure will settle in today under strong cold air advection through the early afternoon and evening. Expect a chilly fall day with quiet weather. Saturday the ridge continues building but the northwest flow will weaken leading to more seasonable temperatures before a cold front moves into the region late Saturday.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning, becoming partly sunny. Highs will be in the lower 40s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be clear and chilly with lows in the upper 20s and northeast winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Saturday should be partly sunny and more seasonable with highs in the lower 50s and south winds 10 to 15 mph. Saturday night showers are likely as the next cold front moves in. Lows will be in the mid 40s with south winds 15 to 20 mph. Chance of rain is 70%.
Sunday’s looking mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers. Highs will be in the mid 50s with west winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 30s.

About Today’s Photo:
This clutch of mushrooms were growing from the top of a birch stump about 5 feet up. The dusting of snow looks like confectioner’s sugar. Anybody care to ID for me?
