This morning in Huntington at 7:35AM it’s currently 22 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 82%, dewpoint 17, barometric pressure 30.22” and rising rapidly. We picked up 2.5” of new snow in the past 24hrs and have 9.5” at the stake. Yesterday’s high was 32, and the overnight low was 22.
Any lingering snow showers will come to an end this morning as a cold front
crosses the region and strong high pressure builds into the region. Another shot of colder air will move in behind the front with temperatures dipping into the single digits tonight. A weak trough crossing the region Saturday night may spark a few light mountain snow shower, otherwise conditions will be relatively quiet going into next week with only a slim chance of snow as a series of week clipper systems move through.
Any lingering morning snow will give way to partly sunny skies this afternoon with a temperature falling to around 17 nightfall. Winds will be out of he northwest at 9 to 11 mph. Tonight should be partly cloudy and chilly with lows around 3 and northwest winds 5 to 9 mph becoming light north after midnight.
Saturday should bring a slight chance of afternoon snow showers. It’ll be increasingly cloudy with a high near 19 and calm winds becoming westerly around 5 mph. Saturday night should bring a 40% chance of snow showers before 11:00pm. It’ll be mostly cloudy with a low around 12 and calm winds becoming westerly around 5 mph after midnight. New snow accumulation of less than 1/2″ is possible.
Sunday’s looking mostly sunny with a high near 28 and light southwest winds becoming southerly 5 to 10 mph in the morning. Sunday night should be mostly cloudy with a low around 21 and southwest winds around 6 mph becoming calm.

About Today’s Photo:
The winterberry bush out by our pond is nearly stripped of its berries now. This native plant is a favorite of birds at this time of year, and I saw a group of robins feeding in it just the other day.
