Weather: Antsy For Winter Yet? (10/10/2017)

Fog and clouds were stubborn early Tuesday morning but they thinned out after 9am. We were then dealt mostly sunny skies with highs back into the 60s & 70s. In fact, Burlington and Plattsburgh both hit 77°. They weren't records but we were a solid 10-20° above normal across the board. Tonight into Wednesday, we'll be partly to mostly clear with isolated pockets of fog around. Overnight lows will be a bit chillier than the last couple nights dropping into the middle & upper 40s. Some in the Adirondacks & NEK of Vermont will drop into the upper 30s but everyone is too warm for frost, for now.

Other than some low visibility and the slight chill in the air, there won't be any issues for the morning drive. Clouds will be off and on much of the day and there's even a chance at a few showers during the afternoon. Most of the rain that falls, and there won't be much, will be south of a line from Saranac Lake to Burlington to Plymouth, New Hampshire. There will be lots of dry time and the rain won't be enough to soak you out or cancel plans. What you'll notice the most is the all of a sudden fall feel; highs will only get into the middle & upper 50s. I remind you that that's almost spot on with 'normal' but about 20° cooler than Tuesday!

Wednesday night, skies clear and the wind goes mostly calm. Overnight lows will cruise into the 30s. Most of us will drop into the middle & upper 30s but the Adirondacks and the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont will fall to around 30-35°. That's cold enough for frost by Thursday morning. Thursday and Friday are both shaping up to be beautiful afternoons under lots of sun and highs in the low to mid 60s. 

Over the weekend we'll have a cold front stall in southern Canada. This will provide us with partly to mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers on Saturday, especially in the North Country. Otherwise, it's warm again with highs will be in the low to mid 70s. Sunday, the front sags a little south and helps spark more scattered rain. Sunday night and Monday, widespread rain is here with another potential soaking. If you've got plans over the weekend, right now Saturday looks like the drier day but have a plan B on stand-by.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
