This morning in Huntington at 7:30AM it’s currently a muggy 72 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are out of the south at 0-3 mph. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 72, barometric pressure 29.78” and rising slowly. We picked up 1.12” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 83, and the overnight low was 70.
Surface low pressure currently sitting over the Ottawa River valley will move eastward today dragging a cold front through the region. This will bring the possibility of a few more showers this morning before drier air moves in for the afternoon. High pressure will build in for Monday bringing fair and seasonable weather. The next chance for rain arrives Tuesday.

About Today’s Photo:
Morning dew drops suspended in a spider’s web seem to float above the grass in this close up image. The drops are maybe 0.5mm in diameter and look like a fizz in the grass when you stand over them. When you get in close, their structure—and beauty—is revealed.
