This morning in Huntington at 7:15AM it’s currently 45 degrees under mostly clear skies. Winds are out of the west at 2-6 mph. Relative humidity is 66%, dewpoint 34, barometric pressure 29.75” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.56” of rain yesterday. Yesterday’s high as 67, and the overnight low was 45.
We had some pretty good wind blowing here yesterday with our top gust of 31 mph. Not all that fast compared to some of our more exposed neighbors (one of whom lost part of their roof in the morning!), but strong enough for our protected hollow. The squall line that came through at around 9:45PM last night was particularly powerful!
A brief period of high pressure is bringing us this morning’s clear skies. We’ll see partly sunny skies today with highs in the upper 40s and southwest winds around 10 mph gusting up to 25 mph this morning. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20s and west winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
A coastal storm will move up the Atlantic seaboard Wednesday bringing a pretty good shot of snow just in time for holiday travel—especially in southern parts of the forecast area. We’ll see cloudy skies with a slight chance of snow in the morning, then a chance of snow or rain in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 30s with light and variable winds. Chance of precipitation is 50%. Wednesday night should be cloudy with a 50% chance of snow. Lows will be around 20 with light and variable winds.
Thursday’s looking cloudy with a 40% chance of snow. Highs will be in the lower 30s with light and variable winds. Thursday night should be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of snow showers. Lows will be in the lower 20s. At this point I’m seeing snowfall predictions of anywhere from 8-10″ in southern parts of Vermont and NH, down to 1-3″ for the Champlain Valley. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Safe bet though that driving will not be all that good Wednesday night into Thursday morning, so if you’re traveling for Thanksgiving, take that into account.
Last year on this date we had a high of 30 and a low of -1 (!). We had 2″ of snow on the ground.

About Today’s Photo:
Maple Wind Farm recently moved their young beef cattle down to the pasture along School Street. They’re pretty shy, but a tad inquisitive too.
