This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently 27 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 87%, dewpoint 24, barometric pressure 29.38” and rising. We picked up 4” of snow and 0.27” of melted precipitation. Yesterday’s high was 45, and the overnight low was 26.
Deep low pressure centered north of Vermont this morning will slowly shift eastward across northern Maine tonight and into the Canadian Maritimes Tuesday into Tuesday night. A moist northwesterly flow around this low pressure system will maintain periods of light snow across the region today, before becoming focused across the higher elevations of the northern ‘Dack and northern Greens tonight. High pressure will briefly bring drier conditions Tuesday night and Wednesday before a wave of low pressure moving eastward from the Ohio Valley brings our next chance for precipitation in the form of a mix of light snow and rain on Thanksgiving day.
