This morning in Huntington at 6:30AM it’s currently 28 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 26, barometric pressure 30.07”. We picked up 0.12” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 57, and the overnight low was 28.
Below normal temperatures will be the rule for the entire region over the next few Days. Lake effect rain and snow showers will move across the area today, and an upper level trough of low pressure will move into the area tonight and increase the potential for snow showers, especially from the Green Mountains eastward where some minor snow accumulations will be possible. We’ll see partly sunny skies this morning, then cloudy skies with scattered rain or snow showers this afternoon. Highs will only be in the upper 30s with west winds around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Tonight should be cloudy with snow or scattered rain showers likely until midnight, then scattered snow showers after midnight. Total snow accumulations should be a dusting to 2 inches. Lows will be in the mid 20s with light and variable winds. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
Friday should be partly sunny with isolated snow showers in the morning. Highs will be in the mid 30s with west winds around 10 mph. Chance of snow is 20%. Friday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 19 and northwest winds around 10 mph gusting up to 25 mph.
A large area of high pressure will build in for Saturday bringing mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 30s and west winds around 10 mph. Saturday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 20s.
