This morning in Huntington at 8:10AM it’s currently 31 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Wind are out of the west at 0-4 mph. Relative humidity is 72%, dewpoint 23, barometric pressure 30.29” and rising rapidly. We picked up 0.02” of rain in the past 24hrs and have lost all our snow. Yesterday’s high was 54, and the overnight low was 31.
Roller coaster goes up, roller coaster goes down. Now it’s heading down. Colder air will be moving into the region today behind a cold front that moved through last night. High temperatures will top out this morning then fall throughout the day. Morning clouds and mountain snow showers will give way to clearing skies this afternoon. High pressure will build down from Canada tonight and Saturday bringing below normal temperatures to the area through the entire weekend. Time to break out the ice skates!
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies this morning with a slight chance of snow showers, then partly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs will top our around 30 then fall to around 18 this afternoon with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. Tonight should be mostly clear with lows around zero and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
Saturday should be mostly sunny with highs around 19 and light and variable winds. Saturday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 14 and southwest winds around 10 mph.
Sunday’s looking partly sunny with highs in the lower 20s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Sunday night should be mostly clear with lows around 10 above.
Last year on this date we had a high of 23 and a low of 1. We picked up 3.25″ of snow and had 3.25″ at the stake. Yup, more snow last year than now. Not a good sign…

About Today’s Photo:
Here’s another view from the top of General Stark Mtn. at the top of Mad River Glen. This time we’re looking west across the (snowless) Champlain Valley, the open waters of Lake Champlain, and to the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains. Mt. Marcy, the highest peak in the ‘Dacks can be seen just about in the center of the ridgeline.
