This morning in Huntington at 7:10AM EST, it’s currently 38 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the north at 3-5 mph. Relative humidity is 92%, dewpoint 36, barometric pressure 30.22” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.16” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 46, and the overnight low was 38.
A stubborn upper level trough of low pressure over the northeast and Canadian Maritimes this morning will continue to provide the region with cloudy skies and areas of drizzle through mid-day before high pressure building over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley begins to build in bringing some sunshine this afternoon. High pressure will hold sway over the northeast for Monday and with abundant sunshine and above normal temperatures expected, before a cold front brings increased chances for showers again Tuesday night into Wednesday.
We’ll see cloudy skies with a 20% chance of rain showers and drizzle this morning, then partly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 40s with north winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be mostly clear with lows in the mid 20s and light and variable winds.
Monday should be sunny with highs in the upper 40s and light and variable winds. Monday night should be clear with lows in the mid 30s and light and variable winds.
Tuesday’s looking sunny with highs in the upper 50s and light and variable winds. Tuesday night should be partly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers. Lows will be in the upper 30s.

About Today’s Photo:
While helping clear a new trail up at the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Center yesterday, this rotting beech log caught my eye. The twist of the wood grain and soft layer of moss create a fine texture against the soft bed of leaves surrounding it.
