This morning in Huntington at 8:00AM it’s currently -23 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 79%, dewpoint -27, barometric pressure 30.57” and rising. We picked up just a dusting of snow in the past 24hrs and have 14.25” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was -3, and the overnight low got down to -24.
A Wind Chill Warning remains in effect until 10:00AM EST today.
After the coldest start of the season, temperatures will warm today into the single digits and teens above zero, and continue rising overnight as warm air moves in ahead of approaching low pressure system heading our way from the west. Winds will be breezy out of the southwest. Snow showers will develop late this afternoon and continue into Monday and Monday night with maybe an inch or two in the Champlain Valley, 2″-5″ in our neck of the woods, and up to 6″-8″ over higher northern mountain summits. Temperatures will be warming through the week (think January thaw…) as high pressure builds in by midweek. We could see temperatures in the mid 40s to around 50 on Thursday. At this point it’s looking like some rain is in our future for Friday. Stay tuned.
