This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently 23 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are out of the northwest at 5-10 mph. Relative humidity is 64%, dewpoint 13, barometric pressure 29.53” and rising rapidly. We picked up a 0.01” trace of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 52, and the overnight low was 23.
The passage of yesterday’s cold front has ushered much colder air into the region, making for below average temperatures that will persist for the next several days. A trough of low pressure will pass to our south tonight bringing the chance of some snow to southern Vermont and a reinforcing shot of cold air region-wide. Surface high pressure will crest over the region Tuesday and Tuesday night keeping temperatures cold while clearing the skies.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning, then partly sunny skies later today. It’ll be blustery with highs only in the mid 20s and northwest winds 15 to 25 mph gusting up to 45 mph. Sunday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 14 and northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 35 mph and diminishing to around 10 mph after midnight.
Monday should be mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 20s and light and variable winds, becoming northerly around 10 mph in the afternoon. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 11 and north winds around 10 mph.
Tuesday’s looking mostly sunny with highs in the upper 20s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph gusting up to 25 mph. Tuesday night should be clear with lows around 15.
Last year on this date we had a high of 64 and a low of 36. We picked up 0.01″ of rain and had 11.50″ of snow at the stake.
