This morning in Huntington at 8:20AM it’s currently 33 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 80%, dewpoint 27, barometric pressure 29.98” and falling slowly. We picked up 0.75” of new snow and have 4” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 26 (at midnight last night), and the overnight low was 22.
A Winter Weather Advisory in is in effect for our region until 5:00PM today.
We’ve got an active period of weather ahead for the remainder of the week. Morning snow will be tapering off with only light accumulations expected. Low pressure moving out the Great Lakes will lift a warm front through the region today bringing rain and snow to the region tonight with minor accumulations (1″-3″) expected for areas outside from the Champlain Valley. Travel could be sloppy this evening. As the low passes through the region tomorrow, colder air will move in on northwesterly flow bringing accumulating snows across portions of northern New York and the northern and central sections of Vermont. We could see several inches of snow from this locally. Fingers crossed! Frigid high pressure air will move in by Friday bringing daytime highs in the single digits Friday and Saturday and well below-zero temperatures Friday night.
