This morning in Huntington at 7:40AM it’s currently 14 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 80%, dewpoint 9, barometric pressure 29.78” and rising slowly. Yesterday’s high was 22, and the overnight low was 14. We picked up an additional 11.75” of snow in the past 24hrs (8.5″@5:00PM 3/15, 3.25″@7:30AM 3/16), and have 25” at the stake. This brings our total for the storm to 35”. Wow.
The snow machine is finally winding down. Burlington reported 30.4″ of snow from the storm which put it at #1 for March snowfalls and #2 for all snowfalls on record. We’ll continue to see a few upslope, wraparound snow showers today along the western slopes of the Greens north. Some breaks in the clouds allow for the sun to pop out Friday, then a weak low moving out of the Great Lakes and Ohio River Valley will bring another chance of snow Saturday mostly to southern portions of Vermont. It’s looking like temperatures will remain well below seasonal averages clear through next week, so winter’s here for a while longer folks!
We’ll see cloudy skies today with snow showers likely mainly this morning. We may see another 1″ to 3″. Highs will be around 20 with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow is 70%. Tonight should be mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of snow showers mainly until midnight. Lows will be around 11 with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
Friday should be partly sunny with highs in the mid 20s and northwest winds around 10 mph. Friday night should be mostly clear with lows around 5 above and light and variable winds.
Saturday’s looking mostly sunny with a 50% chance of snow showers south. Highs will be in the lower 30s with southeast winds around 10 mph. Saturday night should be partly cloudy with a 50% chance of snow showers. Lows will be 15 to 20.
