This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently 62 degrees under mostly clear skies. Wind are calm. Relative humidity is 95%, dewpoint 60, barometric pressure 29.91” and rising slowly. We picked up 0.03” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 80, and the overnight low was 50.
This morning’s sunshine will give way to scattered showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon as low pressure currently over the Great Lakes heads in our direction. Gusty winds and small hail will be possible with any of the thunderstorms. The showers and storms will taper off tonight, but the potential
for additional showers or storms will develop once again Monday afternoon. High temperatures will be right around seasonal averages today and a few degrees below normal on Monday.

About Today’s Photo:
There’s a new trail off of Taft Road that passes along an unnamed brook. This lovely little waterfall drops along the stream under the shelter of a hemlock forest. While shooting the falls, I noticed one of the hemlock trees sported a crop of fine little mushrooms. I was happy to get them and the falls in the shot! A slow shutter speed adds to the magic of the place.
