Highs today will range from the upper 30s to low 40s under cloudy skies. Weak high pressure will build in for Wednesday bringing some breaks in a rather persistent cloud cover with daytime highs in the lower 50s. The remnants of tropical storm Zeta will pass south of the region later Thursday into Friday bringing light rains and a period of potential accumulating snows over higher terrain of central and southern counties. Drier weather looks to return by later Friday into next Saturday as high pressure builds in.

We’ll see cloudy skies today with a 20% chance of showers. Highs will be near 43 with north winds around 5 mph. Tonight should gradually become partly cloudy with a low around 33 and light and variable winds.

Forecast:

A bubble of surface high pressure over the region this morning has pushed the pesky stationary front to our south for the day. We’ll see a few scattered, light showers today. The front will lift northward again tonight allowing temperatures to rise overnight and bump up into the upper 60s on Friday along with gusting south winds. A sharp cold front will move through the region on Saturday bringing another round of scattered light showers and blustery northwest winds Saturday.

Morning Observation:

This morning in Huntington at 7:40AM it’s currently 48 degrees and drizzling a bit under overcast skies. Relative humidity 25%, dewpoint 13, barometric pressure 30.18” and falling slowly. We picked up 0.25” of rain yesterday. Yesterday’s high was 59, and the overnight low was 46.

Forecast:

The stalled frontal boundary that’s parked over south-central New England early this morning will begin to lift northward as a warm front over the next few hours as a broad area of low pressure over the Great Lakes shifts northeastward into the Ottawa Valley. The low will drag a surface cold front through the region this afternoon bringing light showers along with gusty south winds late this afternoon and into the evening hours. High pressure and drier weather will build in for Thursday with even warmer temperatures expected Friday as the stationary front lifts once again through the region as a warm front. Daytime highs on Friday could bump into the low 70s in some valley locations. A strong cold front is expected to cross the region on Saturday bringing a noticeable drop in temperatures back to more seasonable levels. After a quiet and cool day on Sunday, active weather returns for next Monday.

About Today’s Photo:

I was driving up East Street yesterday around midday when I happened to catch some movement out of the corner of my eye. This juvenile red tailed hawk (pretty sure of that ID…) was busy hunting in the brush and woods along the side of the road. Just before I snapped this photo, it had dove into the brush, but didn’t come up with anything. It perched in a poplar just long enough for me to stop the car, grab my camera, and get a shot out my window.

This will bring a period of scattered to numerous showers to the region Monday night into Tuesday. An upper level disturbance is expected to track across Lake Ontario Tuesday bringing another shot of showers to northern New York before high pressure builds in briefly Tuesday night. An active and seasonably warm weather pattern is expected through the remainder of the upcoming week with another round of gusty south winds expected Wednesday and again Friday.
