This morning in Huntington at 7:00AM it’s currently a balmy, and indeed foolish, 64 degrees. Winds are gusting out of the south at 5-15 mph. Relative humidity is 69%, dewpoint 54, barometric pressure 29.47”. Yesterday’s high was 65, and the overnight low was 63.
Big, foolish changes in our weather coming in the next 48 hours. Low pressure heading into central Québec early this morning will drag a cold front through the region today kicking off showers and possible rumbles of thunder this afternoon into Saturday. An Arctic cold front will swing down Saturday night bringing in much colder air that will remain with us into next week.
We’ll see showers today with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. It’ll be breezy with highs in the mid 60s and southwest winds 15 to 25 mph gusting up to 40 mph, then becoming westerly 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph this afternoon. Chance of rain is 90%. Tonight should be mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of rain showers until midnight, then partly cloudy after midnight. Lows will be in the upper 30s with west winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph and diminishing to around 10 mph after midnight.
Saturday should be partly sunny in the morning, then become cloudy with a 50% chance of rain showers. Highs will be in the lower 50s with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
