This morning in Huntington at 8:45AM it’s currently 44 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. We had a light frost once again in the low pockets of our front field. Relative humidity is 75%, dewpoint 38, barometric pressure 30.20”. Yesterday’s high was 59, and the overnight low was 32.
The ridge of high pressure that has been delivering our lovely early fall weather will move east of the region today. Low pressure over the western Great Lakes will spin a frontal system into the region today bringing increasing high clouds and warmer temperatures today. This system will move across the region tonight bringing rain showers tonight and early Tuesday.
We’ll see sunny skies today with highs in the mid 60s and light and variable winds, becoming southerly around 10 mph this afternoon. Tonight should be cloudy with occasional showers mainly after midnight. Lows will be in the upper 40s with south winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 80%.
Tuesday should be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers in the morning, then partly sunny with a slight chance of showers in the afternoon.

Apple season is in full swing and Shelburne Orchard appears to have another bumper crop of laden trees. I’m always amazed how many apples these trees can bear!
