This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM it’s currently -5 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 85%, dewpoint -8, barometric pressure 30.02” and steady. We have 23.5” of snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 25, and the overnight low was -6.
A persistent northwesterly flow and chilly Canadian high pressure will continue to deliver unseasonably cold and dry condtions to the region through midweek. A coastal low will strengthen Wednesday as it moves from the Carolina coast northeastward, but the brunt of the impacts with this system still look to be to our south and east. Southern portions of Vermont may see some precipitation Wednesday and Thursday.
We’ll see mostly sunny skies today with highs around 22F and NNW winds at 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows around 9F and NW winds at 5 to 10 mph.
