A weakening low pressure system moving out of the Great Lakes this morning will bring light to moderate snow, warmer temperatures, and increased clouds to the region today through Wednesday. We should see snow tapering off this morning, then restarting later this afternoon into the evening. Look for 2″-3″ here in Huntington with 3″-5″ farther south and east. Once the system departs, a noticeable warming trend will kick off going into the weekend with highs pushing 40 by Sunday. There will be chances for some light precipitation during this period as some weak upper level disturbances move through. A more significant low will arrive Sunday into Monday with the potention for the “R” word… Stay tuned…

About Today’s Photo:
A rapid cool down after heavy rains allowed for the formation of anchor ice along Fargo Brook. This type of ice holds fast to rocks beneath the surface letting the splashing water sculpt interesting lacey shapes.
