This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently 35 degrees and drizzling lightly under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 34, barometric pressure 29.80”. We picked up a 0.01” trace of rain overnight. Yesterday’s high was 39, and the overnight low was 35.
Cloudy yet unseasonably mild weather will continue for the region this weekend. A weak disturbance moving across the eastern Great Lakes this morning will skirt the prevailing ridge of high pressure over the region and provide just a chance of a few light rain showers and patchy drizzle today into tonight. The start of the work week brings a more active period of weather as a moisture laden system move slowly northeastward from the Gulf Coast states to bring a wintry mix to the along with the potential for strong and gusty winds, especially along the western slopes of the Greens.
We’ll see a 20% chance of rain this morning. It’ll be cloudy with highs in the lower 40s and light and variable winds. Tonight should be cloudy with a slight chance of drizzle until midnight. Lows will be in the lower 30s with light and variable winds.
