This morning in Huntington at 6:20AM it’s currently 39 degrees under overcasts skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 93%, dewpoint 38, barometric pressure 30.03”. We picked up 0.02” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 61, and the overnight low was 37.
There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for our region from 1:00AM Friday morning to 7:00PM Friday night.
We’ve got some wintery weather ahead of us… A low pressure system has developed over the Great Lakes and will move across the middle-Atlantic states and into the Atlantic Ocean this evening. It will then track north into the Gulf of Maine by tomorrow morning—a nor’easter—and bring widespread precipitation over the area with snow at higher elevations beginning tonight, and rain transitioning to snow in the valleys by Friday morning.
We’ll see cloudy skies today with rain likely by this afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 40s with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 70%. Tonight will bring rain until midnight, then rain or snow after midnight. We could see snow accumulations of a dusting to 2 inches overnight especially at elevations over 1000-1500′. Lows will be in the lower 30s with light and variable winds, becoming northerly around 10 mph after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
Reinforcing cold air will move in Friday allowing valley rain to mix with wet snow. Total snow accumulations should be on the order of 2-4 inches at around 1000′ with up to 6-10 inches over higher summits. Daytime highs will only be in the mid 30s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Friday night snow is likely with little or no additional snow accumulation. Lows will be in the mid 20s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow is 60%.
Saturday’s looking partly sunny and chilly with highs in the mid 30s and southwest winds around 10 mph. Saturday night should be cloudy with a chance of snow or rain showers as a quick trough and attendant cold front move across the region. Lows will be in the lower 30s. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
