This morning in Huntington at 7:00AM it’s currently 36 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 89%, dewpoint 33, barometric pressure 29.44” and falling rapidly. Snowpack is down to 1.5” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 31, and the overnight low was 22.
Two low pressure systems—one approaching from the Great Lakes and the other a coastal nor’easter off the Massachusetts coast this morning—will deliver a wintery mix to the region today. The nor’easter will deliver snow to northern New Hampshire and Maine, but we’ll miss that boat. We’ll see rain, snow, or sleet arriving shortly this morning, then rain or snow this afternoon. We could see snow and sleet accumulations a dusting to 2″. Highs will be in the upper 30s with south winds around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Tonight should be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow until midnight, then partly cloudy with a slight chance of snow showers after midnight. Lows will be around 20 with west winds around 10 mph. Chance of snow is 20%.
Sunday should be partly sunny with highs in the mid 20s and west winds around 10 mph. A clipper low will move through the region Sunday night bringing snow with light snow accumulations possible. Temperatures will also drop behind the low. Lows will be around 14 with light and variable winds. Chance of snow is 70%.
Snow will continue into Monday with additional light snow accumulations possible. Highs will be around 17 with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Chance of snow is 70%. Monday night should be mostly cloudy and much colder with lows around zero.
Last year on this date we had a high of 25 and a low of 3. We had 7.5″ of snow at the stake.
