This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently a cool 52 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 88%, dewpoint 468, barometric pressure 30.02” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.46” of rain overnight along with a few rumbles of thunder. Yesterday’s high was 81, and the overnight low was 51.
The cold front that came through last night brought us a good shot of rain overnight. High pressure currently building into the region will deliver noticeably cooler but seasonably normal temperature the start off the work week. Strong radiational cooling tonight will produce areas of frost across the sheltered valleys of the ‘Dacks and northeast Vermont overnight.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning giving way to clearing. Highs will be in the lower 60s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be clear and chilly with lows in the lower 40s in our region with north winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Monday should be sunny with highs in the upper 60s and light and variable winds. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 40s and light and variable winds.
Tuesday’s looking partly sunny with highs around 70 and light and variable winds. Tuesday night should be mostly clear with patchy dense fog. Lows will be in the upper 40s.

About Today’s Photo:
Robin & I paddled on Moore Reservoir on the Connecticut River east of St. Johnsbury on Thursday. We were surprised to see numerous cairns piled along the shore in many different places. These particular cairns were quite large—the stones must have weight 50 or 60 pounds—so someone was definitely being industrious!
