This morning in Huntington at 8:15AM it’s currently 24 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 93%, dewpoint 22, barometric pressure 30.14” and falling slowly. We picked up 0.6” of rain/melted precipitation and 1” of snow and have 8” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 40, and the overnight low was 23.
Anyone else have fun on our dirt roads last evening around 7:00PM before the snow started falling?
High pressure across southern Quebec has pushed the surface frontal
boundary south of Vermont early this morning putting us on the cold side of thing albeit briefly. Developing low pressure across the Ohio Valley will track northeastward across the St. Lawrence Valley this evening allowing the boundary to lift northward as a warm front later today. This will bring periods of light mixed precipitation this afternoon, followed by a change to intermittent plain rain in most areas. A trailing cold front will bring a chance of rain or snow showers overnight. Drier and more seasonable weather are on tap for Monday and Tuesday. Another warm up is in the cards for Thursday…
We’ll ss cloudy skies with a few showers of rain this afternoon. Areas of freezing rain possible (like we saw last night..) Highs will be near 40F with SE winds at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain is 30%. Tonight should bring rain showers early tapering to cloudy skies overnight. Lows will be around 26F with SSW winds shifting to WNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain is 40%.
Monday should be partly cloudy with highs around 28F and WNW winds at 10 to 15 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 7F and NNW winds at 5 to 10 mph.
Tuesday’s looking mostly sunny with highs around 25F and light and variable winds. Tuesday night should be partly cloudy with lows near 20F and south wids at 5 to 10 mph.
Last year on this date we had a high of 24 and a low of 6. We picked up 1″ of new snow and had 7″ at the stake.

About Today’s Photo:
After the snowfall the other day and before the winds (and later rain) got to work, fine “Champlain” powder graced the branches of tree and understory shrubs like this hobblebush up in the high country above Camel’s Hump Nordic.
