This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently 63 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 63, barometric pressure 30.20”. Yesterday’s high was 79, and the overnight low was 56.
An area of low pressure currently over the central Great Lakes will track along the international border over the next 24 hours dragging a warm front along with it. This front will bring increasing clouds this morning and widespread showers some with locally heavy rainfall later this afternoon into tonight. A few thunderstorms are also possible, especially from the Adirondacks eastward across central and south- central Vermont during the late afternoon through evening hours. Some lingering showers are expected Wednesday morning especially in the mountains. However, as the low shifts east of the region, we should see partial sunshine during Wednesday afternoon. Warm summer weather will return later this
week into this weekend.
We’ll see cloudy skies today with a chance of showers this morning, then showers likely with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 70s with light and variable winds, becoming southeasterly around 10 mph this afternoon. Chance of rain is 70%.

About Today’s Photo:
The hydrangea next to our back patio has come into bloom and is open for business for all the pollinators in the neighborhood. This tall shrub is a magnet for everything from ants to flies to bees to hornets as its fragrant flowerettes become a nexus for buzzing activity.
