This morning in Huntington at 6:45AM it’s currently 27 degrees and snowing lightly under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 90%, dewpoint 25, barometric pressure 29.82” and rising rapidly. We picked up 8.25” of new snow in the past 24hrs for a storm total of 12.25”. We have 10” at the stake (which, incidentally, is almost twice the max depth of 5.75” we had last “winter” on Jan 30, 2016). Yesterday’s high was 28, and the overnight low was 25.
Low pressure will slowly depart eastward across the Canadian Maritimes today and tonight allowing for some lingering flurries and mountain snow showers along with moderately strong and gusty northwesterly winds. High pressure will build in bringing drier conditions for a brief time Tuesday night and Wednesday. A weak upper level low moving out of the Great Lakes will bring the potential for a mix of rain and snow showers for Thanksgiving day. A more significant low may affect the region Friday night into Saturday with a mix of rain and snow.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies today with snow showers around this morning. Highs will be around 32F with winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of snow is 60%. Tonight should bring occasional light snow showers. Low will be around 26F with winds NW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow is 40% with snow accumulations less than one inch.
Wednesday should bring cloudy skies with highs around 32F and winds NW at 5 to 10 mph. Wednesday night should be overcast with low 23F and winds light and variable.
Thursday should bring occasional snow showers with some sleet or freezing rain possible as warmer air moves in. High will be around 36F with winds light and variable. Chance of snow is 60% with snow accumulations less than one inch. Thursday night should be mostly cloudy with some snow showers around before midnight. Low will be near 30F with winds light and variable. Chance of snow is 40%.

About Today’s Photo:
The snow just kept coming down all day yesterday dumping a total of 12.25″ here by this morning. Suddenly winter! I enjoyed watching it fall (and skiing on it!)
