This morning in Huntington at 7:05AM it’s currently 31 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the NW at 0-3 mph. Relative humidity is 85%, dewpoint 27, barometric pressure 30.02”. We picked up 0.17” of rain in the past 24hrs. No snow here… Yesterday’s high was 38, and the overnight low was 31.
A rapidly deepening surface low pressure will track north along the eastern Seaboard today. The circulation around this system will produce gusty north winds and much below normal temperatures.It’s a classic nor’easter, however it’s well off to sea so we should only see a bit of precipitation. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning, then becoming partly sunny skies as high pressure begins to build in this afternoon. It’ll be breezy and chilly for this time of year with highs only in the upper 30s and north winds 15 to 25 mph gusting up to 35 mph. Tonight should be clear and cold with lows in the mid 20s and northwest winds 15 to 20 mph.
Monday should be sunny with highs in the mid 40s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Monday night should be clear with lows in the upper 20s and southwest winds around 10 mph.
Tuesday’s looking mostly cloudy and milder out ahead of next weather-maker. Highs will be in the lower 50s with south winds around 10 mph. Low pressure and an associated cold front will approach Tuesday night bringing mostly cloudy skies and a 50% chance of showers. Lows will be in the lower 40s.
Last year on this date we had a high of 53 and low of 42. We picked up 0.06″ of rain.

Along with the mink I posted yesterday, this muskrat was swimming about in our pond the other morning as well. Why the two of them were together I have no idea…
