Now this is more like it!
This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently snowing lightly under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 91%, dewpoint 16, barometric pressure 29.62”. We picked up 3” of fluffy snow overnight and have 3.5” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 30, and the overnight low was 19.
The low pressure system that brought us our new cover of snow is now moving northeast of our region this morning, but will continue to influence our weather with a persistent chance of off-an-on upslope snowshoers over the next few days. Temperatures will remain slightly below seasonal averages into the middle of the upcoming week.
We’ll see cloudy skies today with a 50% chance of snow showers mainly this morning. Highs will top out at about where they are now—around 19—with west winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Tonight should be mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of snow showers. Lows will be around 3 above with west winds 15 to 20 mph.
Tuesday should be cloudy with upslope snow showers likely mainly in the afternoon. We could see accumulations of 1″ to 3″ possible. Highs will be around 14 with west winds 15 to 20 mph. Chance of snow is 70%. Tuesday night snow showers are likely with additional light snow accumulation possible. Lows will be around 9 above with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Chance of snow is 70%.
Wednesday’s looking partly sunny with highs around 19 and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Wednesday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 5 above.
Last year on this date we had a high of 45 and a low of 25. We had 6.5″ of snow at the stake.

About Today’s Photo:
We went down to Shelburne yesterday to check out an interesting exhibit of rug-hooked renderings of Tarot cards at the All Souls Interfaith center (highly recommended!) Afterwards we drove down to the Shelburne town beach to catch the view. As one might expect from this winter, the water was wide open. I liked the way the slips of ice had covered the rocks in the foreground.
