This morning in Huntington at 8:10AM it’s currently 33 degrees and snowing under overcast skies. Winds are gusting out off the south at 4-8 mph. Relative humidity is 76%, dewpoint 26, barometric pressure 29.76” and falling rapidly. We have 13.5” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 32, and the overnight low was 15.
Low pressure tracking across the northern Great Lakes today will push a warm front through the North Country this morning, followed by a strong cold front this evening. Temperatures will bump up into the mid 30s to lower 40s today with breezy south winds. Morning snow showers will mix with rain showers by midday with just plain rain this afternoon. There’s not a whole lot of moisture associated with this system, so snowpack impacts should be minimal. Any rain will transition back to snow this evening as the cold front swings through. High pressure will build into the region behind the low bringing seasonably cool and
dry conditions for this upcoming weekend.
We’ll see cloudy skies today with snow showers this morning, becoming all rain after 1:00pm. Highs will be near 41 with south winds 14 to 17 mph gusting to 33 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90% with total daytime snow accumulation of less than 1/2″ expected. Tonight rain showers should transition to snow by 8:00pm. Lows will be around 22 with southwest winds 13 to 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90% with little or no snow accumulation expected.

About Today’s Photo:
We took a Valentine’s Day ski up at the Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton yesterday and enjoyed perfect bluebird skiing conditions. This view from the fields captures the iconic yellow (we guessed “goldenrod”) buildings of the Breadloaf Campus with the bulk of Breadloaf Mountain in the background.
