This morning in Huntington at 6:20AM it’s currently 62 degrees and raining lightly under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 62, barometric pressure 29.75” and rising slowly. We picked up 0.20” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 79, and the overnight low was 62.
This morning’s showers should come to an end as the cold front responsible for them pushes east of our region to be replaced by cooler, drier air. We’ll see cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers this morning, then partly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70s with light and variable winds, becoming westerly around 10 mph this afternoon. Chance of rain is 20%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 50s and west winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Thursday should be partly sunny with a slight chance of showers in the afternoon as diurnal heating interacts with mild instability. Highs will be in the mid 70s with light and variable winds, becoming northwesterly around 10 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain is 20%. Thursday night should be mostly clear with lows in the lower 50s and light and variable winds.
Friday’s looking sunny with highs in the upper 70s and southwest winds around 10 mph. Friday night should be clear with lows in the mid 50s.

About Today’s Photo:
Mountain Sandwort is a true alpine flower that grows in Vermont only on our highest summits. It’s in full bloom right now, and there are carpets of it up on the summit of Camel’s Hump. If you go up to take a look, remember to stay on the rocks as the flowers and sedges of our alpine summits are rare and endangered!
