This morning in Huntington at 7:35AM it’s currently 29 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 82%, dewpoint 24, barometric pressure 30.17” and rising. Yesterday’s high was 57 (at midnight Thursday morning), and the overnight low was 28.
Low pressure passing east of Cape Cod today will deliver a glancing blow of wet precipitation to southern parts of Vermont and Massachusetts today, but we’ll see dry and seasonable conditions up here in the north.
