This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently -1 (minus 1) degree under partly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 86%, dewpoint -4, barometric pressure 30.20”. We have 2.25” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 23, and the overnight low was -3.
An upper level trough will move across the region today bringing the potential for some light snow showers, especially in the higher elevations. Chilly high pressure is on tap for Monday then another low pressure system will move into the region Tuesday through Wednesday bringing snow on Tuesday before switching to a mix with some sleet then rain late Tuesday night (ugh). We’re in for a warm stretch Tuesday through Friday with temps well above seasonal averages for the season (January thaw?)

About Today’s Photo:
We went for a ski up at the Mt. Mansfield Touring Center yesterday in Stowe. They have a good 10″ or so base in the woods and the skiing was excellent. This snow covered stream along the trail was just begging to be photographed so I obliged.
