Rhodies blooming next to our house
This morning in Huntington at 7:00AM it’s currently a juicy 58 degrees under overcast skies. Winds are calm. Relative humidity is 98%, dewpoint 57, barometric pressure 29.71” and rising rapidly. We picked up a soaking 0.96” of rain in the past 24hrs. Yesterday’s high was 71, and the overnight low was 58.
Our loooong cool spring may finally be over folks. Any lingering morning rain showers will be coming to an end rapidly this morning as high pressure starts to build in. We can expect plenty of sunshine by afternoon as dry conditions and seasonable temperatures make a welcomed return to the North Country. Warm and dry weather will continue through the weekend with temperatures bumping into the 80s Sunday. The next chance of rainfall arrives early next week.
Any lingering showers should wrap up by mid morning. We’ll see gradually clearing skies today with a high near 71 and north winds 6 to 10 mph. Tonight should be clear with a low around 47 and light and variable winds.
Friday should be sunny with a high near 74 and calm winds becoming westerly around 6 mph in the morning. Friday night should be mostly clear with a low around 49 and calm winds.
Saturday’s looking sunny with a high near 77 and calm winds becoming northerly 5 to 9 mph in the afternoon. Saturday night should be mostly clear with a low around 50 and calm winds.
Last year on this date we had a high of 65 and a low of 47. We picked up 0.02″ of rain.

About Today’s Photo:
The rhodedendrons next to our house are putting on quite the show right now. It seems to be a good year for them, and several that haven’t bloomed in quite some time are loaded with buds just starting to burst.
