This morning in Huntington at 7:00AM it’s currently a balmy 69 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are out of the south at 0-4 mph. It’s just starting to rain a bit. Relative humidity is 87%, dewpoint 65, barometric pressure 29.74” and falling rapidly. We picked up 0.08” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 70, and the overnight low was 62.
A quick moving upper level disturbance along with a cold front will bring a period of widespread rainfall to the region this morning. We should see partial clearing and very warm temperatures for the afternoon once this system shifts east of Vermont. Additional moderate rainfall is expected Monday as tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the remnants of Nate affect New York and New England. We’ll see continued above normal temperatures for the next 5 to 7 days.
We’ll see showers, possible thunderstorms, and gusty winds this morning, giving way to partly cloudy skies during the afternoon with a lingering chance of showers. Highs will be around 76F with WSW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain is 90%. Tonight should be partly cloudy and becoming overcast overnight with a slight chance of a rain showera. Lows will be around 58F with light and variable winds.
Monday rain is likely. Highs will be around 68F with SE winds at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain is near 100% with 1″ to 2″ of rain expected and locally heavy rainfall possible. Showers should continue into Monday night. Lows will be arounds 56F with light and variable winds. Chance of rain is 80%.
Tuesday should be partly cloudy with high around 72F and NW winds at 5 to 10 mph. Tuesday night should be clear with lows around 46F and light and variable winds.
