This morning in Huntington at 7:40AM it’s currently 65 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 65, barometric pressure 29.90”. Yesterday’s high was 77, and the overnight low was 55.
Low pressure over James Bay this morning will rotate a warm front and then a cold front through the region over the next 24hrs. The warm front will deliver temperatures bumping up to the high 80s and lower 90s, and the cold front will allow for the development of showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. More tranquil albeit warm to hot weather is on tap for the middle of the week.

About Today’s Photo:
Bladder campion is a familiar plant that grows in disturbed soils along roadways and in fields as well. Though I haven’t heard of it being use in cooking in the U.S., apparently it is a fairly common ingredient in several countries: in Crete and Cyprus it’s sautéd in olive oil or use in omelettes, and in Italy it is added to risotto. Who knew!
