This morning in Huntington at 6:50AM it’s currently 1 degree under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 89%, dewpoint -1, barometric pressure 30.23”. We have 10” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 24, and the overnight low was 1.
A weak upstream upper level trough upstream is moving out of Ontario and into western Quebec this morning. This will bring clouds to the region this afternoon. We’ll see sunny skies this morning, then some clouds this afternoon as the trough moves through. Highs will be in the mid 20s with light and variable winds. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows around 6 above and light and variable winds.
Friday should be mostly cloudy and milder with highs in the upper 20s on a southwesterly airflow around 10 mph. Friday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 20 and south winds around 10 mph.
Saturday should start out partly sunny and milder still with highs in the lower 30s on southwesterly winds around 10 mph. A coastal low will just clip us Saturday night bringing mostly cloudy skies and a 40% chance of snow showers. Lows will be 10 to 15.

This was what greet us on our way up Bald Hill the other day. The morning light was just hitting the tops of the trees that were clad in dense snow. The blue of the sky was stunning.
