This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently 30 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 83%, dewpoint 25, barometric pressure 29.98” and falling slowly. We have 15” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 38, and the overnight low was 27.
An Arctic cold front will move south from Canada today and bring rain and snow showers to the region today. A return to much colder air is once again in store for us for Sunday and Monday. We’ll see cloudy skies with a slight chance of snow showers this morning, then rain or snow showers likely this afternoon. Highs will top out in the upper 30s in the early afternoon and start falling towards evening. Wind will be out of the south winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Tonight should be cloudy with snow showers likely, mainly until midnight. We could see total snow accumulations of a dusting to 2 inches. Lows will drop to around 8 above with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Chance of snow is 70%.
Sunday’s looking partly sunny with a 20% chance of lingering snow showers. It’ll be brisk with highs only around 14 and northwest winds 15 to 25 mph. Sunday night should be mostly cloudy and cold with lows around 3 above and northwest winds 20 to 25 mph gusting up to 35 mph.
Monday should be about the same—partly sunny with highs around 18 and northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 10 above.
At this point it’s looking like temperatures will begin to recover by Wednesday…

It won’t be long (hopefully) until the ice is out of Fargo Brook. In the meantime, the cold morning temperatures are making for some lovely and delicate fringe ice.
