This morning in Huntington at 7:30AM it’s currently 32 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 97%, dewpoint 32, barometric pressure 29.92”. We picked up 0.50” of new snow and have 3” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 38, and the overnight low was 24.
A weak trough of low pressure is currently bringing light snow to the region and will continue through the morning commute. Accumulations will be light but will create slippery driving conditions. A strong upper level trough will move through the Great Lakes overnight bringing additional snow showers Thursday into Friday as colder air begins to moves in to the region. Significant lake effect snow accumulations are possible in parts of northern New York with some accumulations over higher elevations of the northern Greens as well. Valley locations in Vermont should only see a dusting to an inch. The weekend is expected to be seasonably cold with scattered snow showers each day.

About Today’s Photo:
A hay meadow hiding above Taft Road offers a nice pitch for some early season turns. The distinctive copse of trees in the middle of the meadow makes for an atmospheric photo opp.
