This morning in Huntington at 7:00AM it’s currently 59 degrees under cloudy skies. Winds are out of the south at 3-6 mph. Relative humidity is 92%, dewpoint 57, barometric pressure 29.81” and rising rapidly. We picked up 1.00” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 83, and the overnight low was 59.
High pressure building into the region this morning behind the departing cold front will bring mainly dry and seasonable conditions to the region through the end of the work week. Temperatures will be in the low 70s today and warm into the low 80s heading towards the weekend. The next chance of appreciable rainfall will arrive over the weekend as low pressure lifts northeast from the Ohio Valley.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning giving way to sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will be near 74 with northwest winds at 11 to 13 mph. Tonight should be clear with a low around 49 and light and variable winds.
Wednesday should be sunny with a high near 81 and calm winds becoming southwesterly 5 to 8 mph in the morning. Wednesday night should be partly cloudy with a low around 51 and west winds around 6 mph becoming calm in the evening.
Thursday’s looking sunny with a high near 70 and light northwest winds increasing to 5 to 10 mph in the morning. Thursday night should be clear with a low around 47 and light and variable winds.

About Today’s Photo:
Grey tree frogs are singing loudly this time of year. They’re quite difficult to spot as their camouflage allows them to blend in so well with their surroundings. I was lucky enough that this little fellow was actually sitting on one of the Adirondack chairs on our pond dock yesterday morning when I took a swim. I figured he (she?) didn’t really want to be out in the rising sun, so I helped it into the ferns. Note the round pads on the feet of the frog. There are sticky suction-cup like pads on the toes that allow the frogs to cling to vertical surfaces. You’ll often hear these frogs calling from the trees near ponds and streams. This individual might have recently metamorphized from its tadpole form as the emerald green color is indicative of a youngster.
