This morning in Huntington at 7:40AM it’s currently 17 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. A few random snowflakes are drifting down. Winds are out of the north at 1-4 mph. Relative humidity is 85%, dewpoint 13, barometric pressure 30.65” and rising rapidly. We picked up 1.75” of heavy, wet snow and sleet yesterday and 0.01” of melted precipitation. We have 1.8” of crusty snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 37, and the overnight low was 17.
A strong area of high pressure is currently building into the region and will dominate our weather through Monday. We’ll see partly sunny skies this morning, then clearing skies. Highs will be around 20 with north winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be clear until midnight, then becoming partly cloudy. We’ll see some of the chilliest air of the season so far tonight with lows around 1 above with some cold pockets in the ‘Dacks and Northeast Kingdom dropping below zero. Winds will be out of the north around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Monday should be partly sunny with highs in the mid 20s and east winds around 10 mph, becoming southerly in the afternoon. Monday night should be mostly cloudy with lows around 19 and southeast winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph.
Another coastal storm will impact the region starting Tuesday bringing snow or rain with light snow accumulation probable. Highs will be in the lower 30s with east winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Tuesday night should bring snow with additional moderate snow accumulations possible. Lows will be in the upper 20s. Chance of snow is 90%. This coastal storm should impact us into Wednesday as well, but snowfall amounts are uncertain as temperature profiles are still a bit dicey. Stay tuned!
