This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently 7 degrees under clear skies. There was quite the lovely view of Venus and the crescent moon earlier. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 89%, dewpoint 4, barometric pressure 30.49”. We have 3” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 15, and the overnight low was 4.
Calm, quiet, and seasonable weather will continue for the next few days as the center of high pressure moves to our southeast allowing for a warmer southerly airflow to moderate temperatures. We’ll see sunny skies today with highs in the upper 20s with south winds around 10 mph. Tonight should be clear with lows around 17 and light and variable winds.
Thursday should be sunny in the morning, then become partly sunny. Highs will be in the lower 30s with light and variable winds. Thursday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 15 and light and variable winds.
Friday’s looking partly sunny with highs in the mid 30s and light and variable winds. Friday night should be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of light snow as a more active weather pattern begins to move into the region. Lows will be in the mid 20s.
Unfortunately, forecasts are calling for the dreaded “R” word over the weekend. Stay tuned…
