This morning in Huntington at 8:10AM it’s currently 36 degrees under low, foggy overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 97%, dewpoint 35, barometric pressure 29.82” and rising slowly. We picked up a trace of rain overnight. Yesterday’s high was 43, and the overnight low was 35.
Though a weak ridge of high pressure is currently over the region, though a temperature inversion will continue to deliver cloudy skies today and into tomorrow. Low pressure developing along the mid Atlantic coast on Monday will move slowly northeast to around Cape Cod by early Tuesday night bringing mixed
precipitation to the region Monday night and Tuesday, with rain, sleet, snow, and freezing rain possible. We may see some workable snow accumulation here in Huntington, and there may be a decent dump of dense, wet snow in the mountains. I’ll believe it when I’m skiing it… Another low will move through Wednesday with the possibility of more mixed precip. Temperatures will continue to remain above seasonal averages clear through to next weekend.

About Today’s Photo:
I know I usually post photos of the natural world here on this blog, but, as humans are part of nature, and as yesterday’s marches around the globe were something to celebrate, I thought I share a shot from Vermont’s state capital in Montpelier yesterday. Estimates of 7000 people showing up were a bit on the low side as now they’re saying between 10,000 and 20,000 people rallied at the Statehouse for Women’s (and all Human) rights. Go people! It was a beautiful thing!
