This morning in Huntington at 6:40AM it’s currently 31 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 85%, dewpoint 26, barometric pressure 29.69″ and rising. We have 3″ of crusty snow on the ground and bare spots up in the south-facing field. 24hr high was 46, low 31.
The low pressure system that brought snow and rain to the mid-Atlantic region yesterday has pulled out to sea, however it will influence our weather for the next couple of days as it retrogrades a bit up into the Canadian Maritimes and circulates cool moist Atlantic moisture into the region much like we saw last week. This morning’s cloudy skies should give way to partly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 30s with north winds around 10 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy until midnight, then mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow showers after midnight. Lows will be in the upper 20s with northwest winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable. Chance of snow 20 percent.
Wednesday should be cloudy with a chance of snow showers and a chance of rain showers in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 30s with west winds around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. Wednesday night snow showers are likely with light accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible over higher terrain in the ‘Dacks and Greens. Lows will be in the upper 20s with northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of snow is 70%.
Thursday’s looking mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers. Highs will be in the lower 40s with north winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow is 40%. Thursday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20s.
Last year on this date we had a high of 44 and a low of 25. We picked up 0.15″ of rain and 0.75″ of snow and had 0.75″ of snow on the ground (it was the last snowfall of the anemic 2011-2012 snow season…)
