This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently a brisk 39 degrees under mostly clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 39, barometric pressure 30.18” and rising. We picked up 0.10” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 62, and the overnight low was 38.
High pressure moving down from Canada will bring dry conditions to the region this weekend. We’ll have plenty of sunshine along with below normal temperatures. Daytime highs will only be in the mid 50s to lower 60s while overnight lows tonight and Sunday night will get cold enough for frost to develop over the northern Adirondacks, the western slopes of the Greens, and north central and northeast Vermont. Sounds like time to fire up the woodstoves!
We’ll see sunny skies today with highs in the upper 50s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be clear with lows in the mid 30s and northwest winds around 10 mph.
Sunday should be sunny with highs in the mid 50s and northwest winds around 10 mph. Sunday night should be clear with patchy frost. Lows will be in the mid 30s with northeast winds around 10 mph.
Monday’s looking sunny with patchy frost at sunrise. Highs will be in the lower 60s with light and variable winds. Monday night should be partly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers as an upper level low approaches from the Great Lakes. Lows will be in the upper 40s.
Last year on this date we had a high of 70 and a low of 43.
Burlington averages for this date are highs of 67 and lows of 47.
