This morning in Huntington at 6:40AM it’s currently 35 degrees and raining lightly under overcast skies. Winds are out of the east at 0-4 mph. Relative humidity is 97%, dewpoint 34, barometric pressure 29.59”. We picked up 0.33” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 48, and the overnight low was 35.
The low pressure system discussed yesterday will move from the middle-Atlantic region into the Gulf of Maine today bringing plenty of nor’easter style moisture into our region. We’ll see cloudy skies today with snow or rain showers likely mainly this afternoon. Total snow accumulations should be on the order of a dusting to 2 inches with any accumulating snow being in higher elevations above 1500′. Daytime highs will only be in the mid 30s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a 50% chance of snow until midnight, then clear after midnight as a ridge of high pressure builds in. Lows will be in the mid 20s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
Saturday should be partly sunny in the morning, then becoming cloudy as a weak shortwave trough skirts to our north. Highs will be in the upper 30s with southwest winds around 10 mph. Saturday night should be cloudy with a 40% chance of snow or rain. Lows will be in the lower 30s with south winds 10 to 15 mph.
Sunday’s looking mostly cloudy with highs around 40 and southwest winds around 10 mph. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 30.
