This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently 28 degrees and snizzling lightly under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 92%, dewpoint 26, barometric pressure 30.22” and falling rapidly. We picked up 1.2” of snow overnight and have 5” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 27, and the overnight low was 26.
A cold front will edge into the region today bringing light snow with daytime snow accumulations of a dusting to 2″. Highs will be on the mild side—in the lower 30s— with southwest winds around 10 mph and gusting up to 30 mph. Chance of snow is near 100%. With the passage of the cold front this evening, we’ll be back in the deep freeze as arctic high pressure builds in overnight. Expect cloudy with snow showers likely until midnight, then partly cloudy skies with a chance of snow showers after midnight. We may see total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with higher totals south and over the higher peaks of the ‘Dacks and northern Greens. It’ll be much colder overnight with lows around -5 below and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Chance of snow is 70%.
