What a difference a day makes!
This morning in Huntington at 6:15AM it’s a balmy 62 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the south at 0-3 mph. Relative humidity is 88%, dewpoint 59, barometric pressure 30.13”. Yesterday’s high was 60, and the overnight low was 59.
A deep-layer ridge across the western Atlantic will be our controlling weather feature today and Wednesday providing a southerly airflow with above normal temperatures and intervals of low-level cloudiness. We’ll see cloudy this morning, then partly sunny skies later in the day. Temperatures will be a good 15 to 20 degrees above normal with highs in the lower 70s and south winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Tonight should be mostly clear until midnight, then become partly cloudy. Lows will only be in the lower 60s with south winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph.
Wednesday should be mostly cloudy in the morning, then become partly sunny. Highs will again be in the mid 70s with south winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. A slow moving low pressure system currently over the mid Mississippi Valley will drag a cold front into the region Wednesday night bringing mostly cloudy skies and a 50% chance of rain. Lows will be in the lower 60s with south winds 10 to 15 mph.
Thursday rain is likely. Highs will be in the lower 70s with southeast winds 15 to 20 mph. Chance of rain is 70%. Rain will continue into Thursday night. Lows will be in the upper 50s. Chance of rain is 90%.
Last year on this date we had a high of 57 and a low of 49. We picked up 0.16″ of rain.

About Today’s Photo:
We took a stroll along the Burlington waterfront on Sunday afternoon. It was a real sparkler with crisp, clear views over to the Adirondacks.
