This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently 64 degrees under low clouds. Wind are light out of the west. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 64, barometric pressure 29.83” and rising. We picked up 1.58” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 85, and the overnight low was 63.
A weak ridge of high pressure will briefly prevail across the region
today, and once early morning low clouds and fog dissipate, we’ll see
periods of partly sunny conditions with high temperatures in the upper 70s to near 80 and moderate humidity levels. An upper level low approaching from the Great Lakes region will bring increasing chances for showers beginning tonight, and periods of rain through much of the weekend. Cooler and drier conditions are expected in the wake of this upper low to start the work week.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies today with highs in the upper 70s and light and variable winds. Tonight should be cloudy with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Showers are likely mainly after midnight. Lows will be in the lower 60s with east winds around 10 mph, becoming southeasterly after midnight. Chance of rain is 60%.
Saturday showers are likely with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the morning, then showers with thunderstorms likely in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 60s with southeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 80%. Saturday night showers are likely with a chance of thunderstorms.

About Today’s Photo:
Welcome rain fell yesterday afternoon. We certainly needed it! After the showers cleared, the sky to the west lit up with fine sunset colors, and the crescent moon hung quietly in the sky above the post rain mists. I took this shot from the volleyball court.
