This morning in Huntington at 7:35AM it’s currently 16 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 88%, dewpoint 13, barometric pressure 29.98” and rising slowly. We picked up a 0.5” dusting of fluff overnight and have 2.5” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 26, and the overnight low was 16.
Weak high pressure over the region will deliver a quite period of weather for this weekend into early next week with near normal temperatures for early January and chances for mainly mountains snow showers and flurries. Highs will
range in the teens to lower 20s with overnight lows in the single digits above or below zero. Temperatures will quickly warm to above normal by the middle of next week with gusty southerly winds and another wintry mixed precipitation event mid-week.
We’ll see partly sunny skies today with a 30% chance of snow showers this morning. Highs will be around 20 with west winds around 10 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a 20% chance of snow showers until midnight. Lows will be around 10 above with light and variable winds.
Saturday should be partly sunny with highs around 19 and light and variable winds. Saturday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 4 above and light and variable winds.
Sunday’s looking mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of snow showers as a trough moves through the region. Highs will be around 14 with west winds 10 to 15 mph.
