The Mailbox Trail beaver pond on its way into "stick season"

The Mailbox Trail beaver pond on its way into “stick season”

Morning Observation:

This morning in Huntington at 8:20AM it’s currently 35 degrees under party cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 35, barometric pressure 29.78″. We picked up 0.08″ of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 43, and the overnight low was 33.

Forecast:

Weak high pressure will build across the region today serving up partial sunshine and milder temperatures. This will be short-lived however, as an upper level low currently over Hudson’s Bay will drop southeast tonight dragging an attendant cold front across the region. This will bring a renewed threat of showers and higher summit snow showers tonight and into Sunday. We’ll see mostly sunny skies this morning, giving way to clouds with a chance of rain showers this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 50s with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 40%. Tonight should be cloudy with showers likely mainly until midnight. Lows will be in the lower 40s with southwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 70%.

Sunday should be cloudy with a 50% chance of showers. Highs will be in the upper 40s with west winds around 10 mph. Sunday night should be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain showers. Lows will be in the upper 30s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

High pressure will begin building into the region Monday bringing partly sunny skies with highs around 50 and northwest winds around 10 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 40.

Almanac:

Last year on this date we had a high of 44 and a low of 34. We picked up 0.08″ of rain and our first dusting of snow for the season.

About Today’s Photo:

The Mailbox Trail beaver pond is full once again. The dam blew out during tropical storm Irene turing the pond into a soggy meadow. But beavers being beavers, they rebuilt, and the dam is just a foot or two below where it was before (it’s a tall dam too—a good 6-8 feet high!)
