This morning in Huntington at 8:30AM it’s currently 56 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 95%, dewpoint 54, barometric pressure 29.77”. We picked up 0.56” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 68, and the overnight low was 49.
Warm temperatures with scattered showers and embedded thunderstorms will be possible during the day today before low pressure over the Great Lakes drags a cold front through the region later this evening. Behind the cold front we can expect a return to drier and more seasonable weather to start the work week. The next chance of precipitation will return towards the mid week as a low pressure brings more rain by Wednesday.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies today with isolated showers this morning, then scattered showers with isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70s with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Chance of rain is 50%. Tonight should be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms until midnight, then a chance of showers after midnight. Lows will be in the mid 40s with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph, becoming westerly after midnight. Chance of rain is 50%.
Monday should be partly sunny with a 20% chance of showers. Highs will be in the mid 40s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 30s and northwest winds around 10 mph.
Tuesday’s looking mostly sunny with highs in the mid 50s and light and variable winds. Tuesday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 30s.

About Today’s Photo:
Bloodroot is one of the earliest “spring ephemerals” to bloom in our neck of the woods. So named for its reddish rhizomes and bright orange sap, bloodroot will curl its broad leaves around its flower buds in cold weather. These should be opening up today as temperatures get into the 70s.
