This morning in Huntington at 7:05AM it’s currently 25 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 24, barometric pressure 29.97” and steady. We picked up 1” of new snow in the past 24hrs and have 18” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 31, and the overnight low was 25.
The nearly stationary low that brought us the “Dump of 2014” will move east of New England today as a broad ridge of high pressure builds into the area and persists into early next week. After a few scattered snow showers this morning the weather will trend drier as the high pressure moves into the area. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies with a chance of snow, mainly this morning. Highs will be around 30 with northwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of snow is 40%. Tonight should be mostly cloudy until midnight, then become partly cloudy with a 20% chance of snow. Lows will be in the lower 20s with light and variable winds.
Sunday should be partly sunny (remember that bright thing?) with highs in the mid 30s and light and variable winds. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 20s and light and variable winds.
Monday’s looking partly sunny with highs in the lower 30s and light and variable winds. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 20s.
Last year on this date we had a high of 16 and a low of -5. We picked up 1.75″ of new snow and had 3″ on the ground.
Burlington norms for this date are highs of 34 and lows of 20.
The record high was 56°F in 1946.
The record low was -9°F in 1982.

About Today’s Photo:
The willows by the pond are weeping a bit more than usual. I noted to a friend yesterday that all the trees along our western side of the mountains look like they’re weeping. I was skiing at Mad River Glen yesterday, and trees on that side of the ridge sustained very little if any damage. Oh, and the skiing was awesome!
