This morning in Huntington at 9:00AM it’s currently 40 degrees under cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 76%, dewpoint 33, barometric pressure 29.49” and falling. We picked up 0.52” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 66, and the overnight low was 35.
If yesterday was a bit of a trickster weather-wise, the next 24 hours will prove to be even trickier. An upper level trough of low pressure will bring a wide variety of weather to the area this weekend. First up will be scattered to numerous showers from late morning through early evening as a cold front associated with the trough moves across the region. Some of the showers may contain very small hail and gusty winds. Noticeably colder air is expected tonight and as the trough moves across the area. The potential for snow showers
will exist with some minor accumulations possible over southern Vermont by Sunday morning. Any snow showers will come to an end Sunday morning with temperatures expected to be well below normal. Highs will only be in the middle 20s to lower 30s with gusty northwest winds that will make it feel even colder.
We’ll see partly sunny skies this morning, then mostly cloudy skies with rain showers likely this afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 50s with southwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 70%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a chance of rain showers until midnight, then mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers after midnight. Lows will be in the lower 20s with northwest winds around 10 mph and gusting up to 25 mph until midnight. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
Sunday should be cloudy with a 20% chance of snow showers in the morning, then partly sunny in the afternoon. It’ll be blustery with highs in the upper 20s and northwest winds 20 to 25 mph gusting up to 40 mph in the afternoon. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 12 and northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 35 mph.
Monday’s looking mostly cloudy with highs only in the upper 20s and light and variable winds. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows 10 to 15.
