This morning in Huntington at 8:10AM it’s currently 26 degrees (and falling) under overcast skies. Winds are out of the west at 0-3 mph. Relative humidity is 79%, dewpoint 21, barometric pressure 30.28” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.02” of rain in the past 24hrs and have 6” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 48 (at 11:00PM) and the temperature has been falling ever since, so no overnight low really…
We’ve got a quiet few days ahead of us weather-wise. A cold front moved through the region overnight bringing rapidly cooling temperatures to start the day off. High pressure will build in through the day today bringing clearing skies and seasonable conditions through much of the work week with warming temperatures by Wednesday and more mixed precipitation.
We’ll see partly cloudy skies today with highs around 29F and WNW winds at 10 to 20 mph. Tonight should be clear and chilly wth lows near 5F and NNW winds at 5 to 10 mph.
Tuesday should be mostly sunny with highs around 23F and light and variable winds. Tuesday night should be partly cloudy early with increasing clouds overnight. Lows will be around 18F with SSW winds at 10 to 15 mph.
Wednesday’s looking partly cloudy in the morning giving way to mostly sunny skies for the afternoon. Highs will be around 41F with SSW winds at 10 to 20 mph. Wednesday night should be partly cloudy with inncreasing clouds and periods of showers after midnight. Lows will be around 38F with south winds at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain is 50%.

About Today’s Photo:
I came across this good sized shelf fungus on a maple while skiing up at Camel’s Hump Nordic. Looks like it was doing its job well of providing a shelf for the fresh snow.
