This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently 32 degrees under clear skies. We have a light frost in our front field. Relative humidity is 97%, dewpoint 32, barometric pressure 30.26” and rising rapidly. Yesterday’s high was 72, and the overnight low was 32.
There is a Frost Advisory in effect for our region from 10:00PM tonight until 8:00AM Saturday.
High pressure building into region today will deliver cool and crisp conditions to conclude the workweek, with most of the region dropping into the 30s tonight. Mainly dry conditions will continue through the first half of the upcoming weekend, with showers likely late Saturday into Sunday morning as low pressure and an associated warm front move in from the Ohio River valley. On and off showers are expected for next week, along with well above normal temperatures.

About Today’s Photo:
I spotted this mottled yellow maple leaf just beneath the surface of Fargo Brook yesterday. The recent rains have given the brook a voice once again, and it’s nice to hear it after a summer of barely murmuring. In the 30+ years that we’ve lived here, I haven’t seen the brook as consistently low as it’s been over the past few months.
