This morning in Huntington at 7:50AM it’s currently 56 degrees under overcast skies. Relative humidity is 95%, dewpoint 54, barometric pressure 30.08” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.58” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 68 (at 1:37AM—our daytime high was only 59), and the overnight low was 54.
We’ve got another cool and dampish start to the day courtesy of an upper level trough of low pressure which will slowly move east of the region this afternoon, but not before delivering a few morning showers. Skies should clear by late afternoon or early evening. High pressure will bring a short window of fair and dry weather on Wednesday, before shower and thunderstorms return Thursday into Thursday evening as a weak cold front crosses the area.
We’ll see cloudy skies with showers likely, mainly this morning. Highs will be in the mid 60s with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 70%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 50s and light and variable winds.
Wednesday should be mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the upper 70s and light and variable winds. Wednesday night should be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers. Lows will be around 60 with south winds around 10 mph.

About Today’s Photo:
Cinquefoil is a French word meaning “five fingers” and refers to the arrangement of five leaves on this common flower. The lovely, buttery yellow petals certainly catch the eye!
