This morning in Huntington at 7:35AM it’s currently 32 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 95%, dewpoint 31, barometric pressure 30.23” and rising rapidly. We picked up 3” of snow, 0.50” of sleet, and 0.13” of rain in the past 24hrs (quite the messy, now frozen, blend). We have 13” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 35, and the overnight low was 32.
High pressure building in from the north today will push the frontal boundary which brought yesterday’s messy mix south of the area allowing for some afternoon sunshine mainly across central and northern areas. A clear and cold night is expected tonight with low temperatures widely varying from the single digits to the upper teens above zero. Unsettled and warmer weather returns for the end of the weekend as developing low pressure over the central U.S. pushes the front back north Sunday afternoon into Monday bringing periods of rain, snow, and mixed precipitation into the upcoming week.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of snow this morning. Highs will be in the upper 30s with north winds around 10 mph. Tonight should be clear with lows around 10 above and north winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Sunday should start out partly sunny in the morning, then become mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain or a slight chance of sleet in the afternoon. Highs will be around 40 with light and variable winds, becoming southerly around 10 mph in the afternoon. Sunday night rain or sleet are likely with little or no sleet accumulation expected. Lows will be in the lower 30s with southeast winds around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
Monday rain is likely. Highs will be around 40 with southeast winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 80%. Monday night rain is likely. Lows will be in the mid 30s. Chance of rain is 60%.
Last year on this date we had a high of 54 and a low of 29. We picked up 0.16″ of rain.
