This morning in Huntington at 7:00AM it’s currently 34 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 96%, dewpoint 33, barometric pressure 30.10” and rising slowly. We picked up 0.09” of rain in the past 24hrs and have 7” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 56, and the overnight low was 33.
Deep low pressure over central Quebec this morning will continue to provide abundant cloud cover to the region today, along with areas of fog and drizzle this morning and some scattered rain and snow showers across north-central Vermont this afternoon. High pressure will deliver a brief period of sunnier and drier conditions Thursday, but unsettled weather will return for the end of the
week and into the weekend, as low pressure arriving from the Ohio River valley will bring valley rain and mountain snow Friday into Saturday.
We’ll see cloudy skies today with a chance of drizzle or a chance of freezing drizzle this morning, then isolated rain showers this afternoon. Highs will be around 40 with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. Tonight should be cloudy with isolated rain or snow showers until midnight. Lows will be in the mid 20s with northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
Thursday should be partly sunny with highs around 40 and north winds around 10 mph. Thursday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 20s and northeast winds around 10 mph.
Friday rain is likely or a chance of snow. Expect little or no snow accumulation in valley locations. Highs will be in the upper 30s with southeast winds around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Friday night snow or rain are likely with additional light snow accumulation at higher elevation possible. Lows will be around 30. Chance of precipitation is near 100%.
Last year on this date we had a high of 40 and a low of 24. We picked up 0.86″ of rain and 1.75″ of snow.

About Today’s Photo:
Taft Hill is one of my favorite places to take photos. The long views down the Huntington River valley or, like this shot, looking southeastward towards Mt. Ira Allen and Wind Gap, always provide some fine eye candy. Here, late afternoon sunshine lights up the bare trees while clouds slide silently down the shoulder of Ira Allen and into Wind Gap.
