This morning in Huntington at 7:45AM its’ currently 13 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 77%, dewpoint 7, barometric pressure 30.40” and rising slowly. We have 7.5” of hard snow at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 26, and the overnight low was 13.
Today into tonight will be the calm before the storm as high pressure to our north delivers dry and seasonably cool conditions. Snow will arrive on Tuesday afternoon and becomes heavy at times overnight into Wednesday morning as low pressure moving out of the Great Lakes and a secondary coastal low deliver a one-two punch of precipitation. Temperature profiles look to be a bit on the cusp during this storm so there might be some sleet in the mix across parts of northern New York and central and southern Vermont. In addition, gusty southeast downslope winds are expected along the western slopes of the Greens (that’s us!) so a wind advisory has been posted as well. Total snow accumulations of 6″ to 12″ are expected. Thursday’s looking calm and seasonably mild, and another system will be approaching Friday with the potential for a mixed bag of precipitation. Stay tuned.
We’ll see partly sunny skies today with a high near 16 and north winds 6 to 8 mph. Tonight should be mostly clear and chilly with a low around -9 and north winds 3 to 7 mph.
Tuesday snow is likely mainly after 2:00pm. Highs will be near 21 with light east wind becoming southeasterly 5 to 9 mph in the morning then gusting to 20 mph as the storm rolls in. Chance of precipitation is 90% with new snow accumulation of 1″ to 2″ expected before sunset. Tuesday night snow is likely, possibly mixing with sleet late. Lows will be around 19 with a southeast winds 17 to 22 mph and gusting to 39 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100% with new snow and sleet accumulation of 2″ to 4″ expected.
Wednesday snow is likely before 11:00am diminishing to showers by the afternoon. Highs will be near 33 with east winds 6 to 13 mph becoming southwesterly in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 90% with new snow accumulation of 2″ to 4″ expected. Wednesday night snow showers are likely, mainly before 8:00pm. It’ll be cloudy, with a low around 20 and west winds around 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60% with perhaps an inch of new snow expected.

About Today’s Photo:
As Sherman Hollow Brook nears the Huntington River, it falls through a narrow sluice carved in limestone (the same stone as the infamous Huntington Gorge). This pretty little falls was just managing to catch the mid-morning sunshine through the hemlocks.
