Double-barreled low pressure currently over the Great Lakes has dragged a slow moving warm front into the region overnight accompanied by copious amounts of rain. The central Champlain Valley and Huntington in particular seem to have been right in the sights of the bulk of the overnight precipitation. Reports from around the region indicated that we’re the “winner” in terms of rain totals. Lucky us…
