Weather: Chilly Start, Big Warm Up (8/17 AM)

Good morning!

Forget to throw an extra blanket on the foot of the bed last night? Don't say we didn't warn you! We're waking up Thursday morning to the mid 30s to low 50s. But hold off on breaking out the Fall wardrobe. It's warming up again quickly. This afternoon, the temp tops out in the mid to upper 70s with a light and variable wind under mostly sunny skies. This day gets two thumbs up! Tonight, clouds increase with a milder overnight low in the 50s to about 60°.

While we're enjoying our beautiful weather today, a low pressure system is spinning away and strengthening over the Northern Plains. The low itself moves northeast, well into Quebec. But it drags a pair of fronts through New York, Vermont and New Hampshire on Friday. There will be numerous showers on Friday and some of that rain could be quite heavy at times. Depending on where the heaviest showers roll through, totals may be in the neighborhood of just one-quarter inch all the way up to 1" or more. Low to mid 70s. Breezy southeast wind.

Friday night, showers wind down for the most part. Although the weekend is a lot drier, it is not entirely rain free as the upper level trough steering that low scoots through. A couple of showers are possible, especially over higher terrain. Near 80°. Aside from that small chance for rain, it's a partly sunny day. Sunday, also a mix of sun and clouds with a seasonable high temp.

Ready for the solar eclipse? The weather for Monday is cooperating big-time! Mostly sunny and warm, low to mid 80s.

Hope your day is amazing!
