This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently 45 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 94%, dewpoint 44, barometric pressure 29.55”. We picked up 0.43” of rain in the past 24hrs. 24hr high was 61, and the overnight low was 44.
A band moderate to locally heavy showers across portions of the north country early this morning will shift northeast of the region after sunrise as low pressure along the Canadian border pushes an occluded front through the forecast area. After a brief break in precipitation, showers will become more widespread once again by this
afternoon and continue through this evening. We’ll see showers, mainly this afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 40s with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 90%. Tonight should be cloudy with showers mainly until midnight. Lows will be in the lower 40s with northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 80%.
