This morning in Huntington at 7:30AM it’s currently 26 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 84%, dewpoint 22, barometric pressure 29.66” and falling slowly. Snowpack is 9.5”. Yesterday’s high was 29, and the overnight low was 18.
Temperatures have climbed into the mid-20s this morning as we benefit from a southerly airflow out ahead of a low pressure currently tracking across Ontario and Québec. Another low is also moving up the coast and may bring a bit of snow to southern portions of Vermont and New Hampshire, but we shouldn’t be seeing any of it up here. We’ll see cloudy skies this morning, giving way to partly sunny skies this afternoon. Daytime highs will bump up into the lower 30s with south winds around 10 mph this morning, becoming light and variable. A cold front will swing through tonight bringing clouds and a 50% chance of snow showers. Lows will be around 9 above with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 30 mph after midnight.
Sunday should be mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of snow showers in the morning, then become partly sunny in the afternoon. Highs will be around 11 with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph.

Monday’s looking partly sunny and chilly with highs only around 9 above with north winds around 10 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy and chilly with lows -5 below to -10 below zero.

About Today’s Photo:
I’ve driven past these three Norwegian Fjord horses many times near the head of Gillette Pond, but the bluebird sky the other day made me stop and take a few shots. I love the color and texture of their coats.
