Rabbit-rabbit!

Morning Observation:

This morning in Huntington at 8:35AM it’s currently a brisk, bright, and frosty 25 degrees under clear skies (remember that?) Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 24, barometric pressure 30.34”. Yesterday’s high was 39, and the overnight low was 23.

Forecast:

We’ve got a lovely first day of November on tap courtesy of high pressure which is centered over New England early this morning. As the high moves eastward into the Gulf of Maine and Canadian Maritimes this afternoon and tonight, developing moderate southerly winds will allow temperatures to rise into the low to mid 50s today, and into the upper 50s to around 60 degrees on Wednesday. A warm front
lifting northward will bring isolated late day showers across northern New York late today, and possibly across northern Vermont tonight. Our next chance for widespread rainfall arrives late Wednesday night through Thursday, as low pressure moves out of the Great Lakes and across the region.

We’ll see partly sunny skies today with highs in the lower 50s and south winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers north. Lows will be in the mid 40s with south winds 15 to 20 mph and gusting up to 30 mph.

Wednesday should be mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers in the morning. Highs will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s with south winds around 10 mph in the morning, becoming light and variable. Wednesday night should be mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers. Lows will be in the mid 40s with light and variable winds.

Thursday rain is likely with highs in the lower 50s and light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 90%. Rain will continue inot Thursday night with lowz in the lower 30s. Chance of rain is 80%.

About Today’s Photo:

Another lichen for you this morning. British soldier lichen (Cladonia cristatella) is quite common to our region and easily identified by its bright crimson caps. It grows on wood and soils.
