This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently 53 degrees under party cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 52, barometric pressure 29.43”. We picked up 1.43” of rain overnight, and our high wind was 37 mph which is quite strong for our protected hollow (our lights flickered several times, but miraculously we didn’t lose power!) Yesterday’s high was 54, and the overnight low was 52.
More showers and gusty winds are expected today across the although not as much rain and wind as yesterday. The showers and gusty winds will be most concentrated this afternoon as an upper level trough of low pressure and attendant cold front moves into the region. Prior to its passage, some sunshine should develop and many areas will see high temperatures climb into the 60s as we’re placed in a southerly airflow out ahead of the low.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers this morning, then partly sunny skies with numerous showers and the chance of a rumble of thunder this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 60s with southwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 35 mph this afternoon. Chance of rain is 60%. Tonight should be partly cloudy until midnight, then mostly cloudy with isolated showers after midnight. Lows around 40 with southwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 35 mph. Chance of rain is 20%.
Friday should be mostly cloudy in the morning then become partly sunny as high pressure builds in. It will be noticeably cooler with highs in the lower 40s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Friday night should be mostly clear with lows in the upper 20s and west winds 10 to 15 mph.
Saturday’s looking partly sunny with highs in the upper 40s and light and variable winds. Saturday night should be mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers. Lows will be in the upper 30s.

About Today’s Photo:
The oaks, beeches, and aspens were aglow the other day on the hill above Delfrate Road. Good money says those leaves are mostly gone after yesterday’s high wings.
