This morning in Huntington at 6:50AM it’s currently 55 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 54, barometric pressure 30.096” and steady. We picked up 0.05” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 73, and the overnight low was 48.
The unsettled and wet weather train continues to rattle down the tracks. Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes this morning will push a warm front over the region bringing showers to northern New York this morning and into Vermont by midday. The combination of the warm front shifting through the region today,
and a cold front following on Sunday will bring several rounds of showers and thunderstorms over the next few days with increasing humidity through the weekend. Locally heavy rain is possible through Saturday, with increasing potential for isolated flash flooding.
