This morning in Huntington at 8:40AM it’s currently 63 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 93%, dewpoint 61, barometric pressure 30.15” and rising. We picked up 0.09” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 80, and the overnight low was 54.
We have a lovely day on tap courtesy of high pressure currently building into the region this morning. We’ll see mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 70s and light and variable winds. Tonight should be mostly clear with lows in the upper 50s and light and variable winds.
The high will move to our east on Sunday allowing the cold front that’s still lingering off the New England coast to retrograde a bit and bring some showers back into the region. We’ll see partly sunny skies with a slight chance of showers in the morning, then an increasing chance of showers with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs will be around 80 with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 40%. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers. Lows will be in the mid 60s with southeast winds around 10 mph.

About Today’s Photo:
Robin bought some Asian lily bulbs at the Garden Show this past winter and planted them in a small bed next to Fargo Brook this spring. I’d say she did well!
