This morning in Huntington at 7:10AM it’s currently 23 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 77%, dewpoint 17, barometric pressure 30.01″ and rising rapidly. Yesterday’s high was 37, and the overnight low was 22.
High pressure is currently building into the region and will deliver partly sunny skies with a slight chance of snow showers this morning. It will remain unseasonably chilly with highs only in the mid 20s with southwest winds around 10 mph and gusting to 25 mph this morning. Chance of snow is 20%. Tonight should be partly cloudy until midnight, then become mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow showers after midnight. Lows will be around 20 with light and variable winds, becoming southerly around 10 mph after midnight. Chance of snow is 20%.
Thursday should be partly sunny in the morning, then become mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of snow showers. Highs will be in the lower 30s with southwest winds around 10 mph gusting to 25 mph in the afternoon. Thursday night should be mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of snow showers as a new cold front lifts through the region. Lows will be around 17 with southwest winds around 10 mph gusting up to 25 mph.
Friday’s looking partly sunny with highs in the mid 20s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Friday night should be partly cloudy with lows 10 to 15. We’ll see temperatures rise through the weekend with highs getting 10-15 degrees above seasonal norms by next Monday thanks to some pretty strong jet stream oscillations (the same oscillations that are giving us this unseasonably cold weather…)
Last year on this date we had a high of 40 and a low of 27. We picked up 0.01″ of rain and a trace of snow.
Burlington norms for this date are highs of 44 and lows of 30.
The record high was 70°F in 1921.
The record low was 7°F in 1924.

About Today’s Photo:
The wild apple trees in our front field provide nourishment for birds and deer through the fall and into the winter. We often see bluejays and other birds pecking away at the drying fruit.
