This morning in Huntington at 7:25AM it’s currently 51 degrees under a low overcast sky. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 50, barometric pressure 29. 91”. We picked up 0.12” of rain overnight. Yesterday’s high was 68, and the overnight low was 49.
We’ve got a fairly unsettled stretch of weather ahead of us this week. Low pressure out over the western Great Lakes this morning will move northeastward through the middle of the week dragging first a warm front, then a cold front through the region. After a calm day today, clouds will be on the increase this evening out ahead of a strong warm front. This front will bring showers and a possible rumble of thunder on Tuesday before the cold front moves through Tuesday night. Unsettled weather will be the rule later in the week as well.
Morning fog should burn off to mostly cloudy skies today. High will be around 62F with light and variable winds. Tonight showers are likely, becoming a steady rain overnight with rumbles of thunder possible. Lows will be around 54F with SE winds at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain is 70%.
Tuesday should be mostly cloudy in the morning with isolated thunderstorms possible later in the day. High will be around 76F with S winds at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain is 30%. Tuesday night showers and thundershowers are likely in the evening, tapering to mostly cloudy overnight with light rain possible. Lows will be around 58F with SW winds at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 80%.
Wednesday’s looking partly cloudy with highs around 66F and NW winds at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday night should start out clear early giving way to occasional showers later during the night. Lows will be around 48F with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 50%.
