This morning in Huntington at 8:15AM it’s currently 67 degrees under cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 99%, dewpoint 67, barometric pressure 29.64” and steady. We picked up just the barest trace of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 83, and the overnight low was 58.
A line of powerful thunderstorm is already nosing into the region this morning in a line from Burlington north towards Morrisville. Showers and thunderstorms will rumble eastward across Vermont during the mid to late morning hours. A few of these storms may produce heavy downpours and strong, gusty winds. This convective activity is expected to exit east early this afternoon as a cold front sweeps across the region bringing partial clearing and drier conditions
later in the day. Slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity levels are expected on Sunday. A broad mid-level trough over eastern Canada will make for unsettled conditions through much of the upcoming work week.
We’ll see a chance of thunderstorms and showers this morning, then showers are likely this afternoon. Some thunderstorms may produce gusty winds, and heavy rainfall. Highs will be in the mid 70s with light and variable winds, becoming westerly around 10 mph this afternoon. Chance of rain is 80%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms until midnight, then clear after midnight. Lows will be in the mid 50s with west winds around 10 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.

About Today’s Photo:
Clintonia (a.k.a. Blue Bead Berry, Bead Lilies, Clinton’s Lily, Corn Lily, Snakeberry, Dogberry, and Cow Tongue) is native to the US northeast and Canada. This lovely yellow flower sets a large blue-to-black fruit later in summer. Don’t be tempted to eat the berries, however, as they’ll make you sick!
