This morning in Huntington at 8:10AM it’s currently 9 degrees under clear skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 89%, dewpoint 6, barometric pressure 30.62” and steady. We have 7.5” of firm snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 24, and the overnight low was 6.
There is a Winter Storm Watch in effect for our region from 1:00PM Tuesday until 4:00PM Wednesday.
Strong high pressure building eastward from the Great Lakes today will bring generally fair, dry, and seasonably cold conditions through Monday night. The next weather maker arrives Tuesday afternoon. Low pressure moving out of the Great Lakes will start things off Tuesday afternoon, then a secondary low off the New England coast will kick things up a notch Tuesday night into Wednesday. Snow is expected to develop from southwest to northeast across the region Tuesday afternoon, and become moderate to locally heavy at times through Tuesday night, before tapering off on Wednesday morning. There’s the possibility for some sleet and freezing rain at times Tuesday night, especially across the northern ‘Dacks into south-central Vermont as temperature profiles are a bit on the edge. We could see 8″ to 14″ of snow from this storm. Stay tuned!
