This morning in Huntington at 7:50AM it’s currently 49 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 93%, dewpoint 47, barometric pressure 29.60” and rising slowly. We picked up 0.65” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 71, and the overnight low was 49.
The cold front that passed through the region yesterday has delivered cooler, more seasonable conditions which will be the rule for today and into the upcoming weekend. A weak weather system passing south of the area may bring a few light showers and mountain snow showers to the area Saturday morning. The coldest temperatures of the fall thus far are on tap for Saturday night with widespread frost and hard freezes expected region-wide as high pressure builds in. Sunday’s looking dry and seasonable.
We’ll see mostly cloudy skies today with a high near 51 and northwest wind 8 to 14 mph. Tonight should bring a 30% chance of showers late—with perhaps a dusting of snow in the mountains. It’ll be cloudy with a low around 36 and west winds 5 to 9 mph.
Saturday should bring a 30% chance of rain and snow showers before early, then a slight chance of rain showers.

It’ll be mostly clear, with a low around 33 and southwest wind 5 to 7 mph.
Sunday should bring a widespread frost early. It’ll be mostly sunny, with a high near 51 and southwest winds 5 to 8 mph. Sunday night should bring a 30% chance of showers. It’ll be mostly cloudy, with a low around 40 and south winds 6 to 8 mph.

We’ve been out of town for the past week and fall has certainly progressed while we were gone! Colors are peaking in our region now and I hope to get out today to take some shots! For now, this birch leaf in Fargo Brook will have to suffice.
