This morning in Huntington at 8:10AM it’s currently 34 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 93%, dewpoint 33, barometric pressure 30.08” and steady. We picked up a 0.01” trace of rain in the past 24hrs and have 7.5” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 39, and the overnight low was 32.
High pressure will build over the region today and remain with us through Monday bringing dry and partly cloudy conditions. Low pressure moving out of the Ohio River valley Tuesday will deliver another widespread mainly rain event. The combination of rain and snow melt will produce rises on local streams and rivers by midweek.

About Today’s Photo:
Up skiing on Crow Hill yesterday, I came across these wing prints of a recently flushed ruffed grouse. The bird had been sheltering under the spruce on the left and had burst out from cover. You can see foot prints, a tail drag, and four distinct wing flaps in the snow before it went airborne.
