This morning in Huntington at 6:55AM it’s currently 20 degrees under mostly clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 94%, dewpoint 19, barometric pressure 30.27” and rising slowly. We picked up an additional 0.75” of snow yesterday and have a spotty 1” on the front lawn (I already removed the snow stake…) Yesterday’s high was 40, and the overnight low was 19.
High pressure will deliver mostly sunny skies and milder temperatures today. Low pressure moving into the western Great Lake tonight will lift a warm front across the region overnight bringing a chance of showers. More widespread showers are expected Thursday afternoon into Friday as the low moves slowly into northern Québec pulling a cold front across the area. Both days will feature very mild temperatures with highs well into the 60s. A trend toward much colder weather is expected over the weekend as an Arctic front moves through accompanied by snow showers.
We’ll see sunny skies this morning, then partly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 50s with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy until midnight, then become mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers after midnight. Lows will be in the lower 40s with south winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph.
Thursday should be cloudy with a 50% chance of showers. It’ll be warm and breezy with highs in the mid 60s and south winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 35 mph. Thursday night should be cloudy with a 50% chance of showers. Lows will be in the mid 50s with south winds 15 to 25 mph gusting up to 35 mph.
Friday showers are likely. Highs will be in the mid 60s with southwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Chance of rain is 70%. Friday night should be partly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain showers. Lows will be in the mid 30s.

About Today’s Photo:
This fine little cascade caught my eye across the LaPlatte river the other day. Its waters fall over step-like layers of slate, reminding me of the waterfalls of my youth in northern Ohio.
