This morning in Huntington at 7:40AM it’s currently 32 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 87%, dewpoint 29, barometric pressure 29.98”. We’re pretty much down to bare ground at the snow stake. Yesterday’s high was 38, and the overnight low was 32.
A ridge of high pressure over the region this morning will deliver relatively quiet weather through the upcoming weekend with mainly cloudy skies and very mild temperatures. A more significant weather maker is looking more likely to affect the region Monday night into Tuesday with potential significant accumulations of snow or mixed precipitation. Stay tuned!
