This morning in Huntington at 7:40AM it’s currently 30 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 97%, dewpoint 29, barometric pressure 30.18”. We picked up a 0.01” trace of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 44, and the overnight low was 30.
A ridge of high pressure currently over the region will deliver dry and above normal temperatures through Saturday. A deep mid-level low and associated cold front will bring rain and terrain driven snow showers Saturday night and Sunday. Precipitation will continue through Monday night with temperatures trending slightly below normal. This colder air will change rain showers to widespread snow showers even in the valleys.
We’ll see mostly sunny skies today with highs in the upper 50s and light and variable winds. Tonight should be clear with lows in the mid 30s and light and variable winds, becoming southeasterly around 10 mph after midnight.

About Today’s Photo:
Yesterday morning we were visited by a very active mink making the rounds (literally) of our pond. He/she was there for quite a while and managed to snag at least one of the koi we’ve got in the pond. Yum!
