This morning in Huntington at 8:15AM it’s currently 20 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 74%, dewpoint 13, barometric pressure 30.14” and rising rapidly. We picked up a dusting of snow in the past 24hrs and 0.02” of melted precipitation. Yesterday’s high was 42, and the overnight low was 14.
We’ve got calm and seasonably cool weather ahead for the remainder of the ofthe weekend courtesy of Canadian high pressure which is currently building into the region. We’ll see sunny skies today with highs in the upper 20s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be clear with lows around 12 and north winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Sunday should be sunny in the morning, then becoming partly sunny. Highs will be in the mid 30s with light and variable winds. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 16 and light and variable winds.
The coastal low I mentioned yesterday is now looking to be weaker than previously anticipated and tracking further east, so we shouldn’t see any threat of snow. Monday should be partly sunny with highs in the mid 30s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows 15 to 20.
Last year on this date we had a high of 27 and a low of 3. We had 15.50″ of snow at the stake.
Burlington averages for this date are highs of 41 and lows of 23.
The record high was 79°F in 2012 (we had a high of 77).
The record low was -10°F in 1993.

About Today’s Photo:
I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I went out shooting for bald eagles on Thursday. Well, we found some! This pair was perched in a tall rock elm in Ferrisburg near the Little Otter Creek. They were quite patient while I snapped off several dozen shots. Their large nest was nearby.
