This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently 67 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Winds are out of the south at 1-3 mph. Relative humidity is 81%, dewpoint 61, barometric pressure 29.92” and steady. We picked up 0.32” of rain in the past 24hrs (0.64” for the storm).

An increasing south to southwest air flow will deliver building heat and humidity this weekend with highs in the 80s today and upper 80s to lower 90s on Sunday. Isolated thunderstorms are possible late this afternoon or evening especially east. An approaching cold front will bring the threat for strong to locally severe thunderstorms Sunday evening into Monday, along with locally heavy rainfall with a very moist air mass in place ahead of the front. Cooler weather will follow behind the front into midweek.
