After a warm and somewhat sunny couple of days, thicker clouds roll back in Thursday morning and rain follows shortly behind. Though the day starts out dry, showers will fill in from south to north late morning into this afternoon, and become more numerous by this evening. The temp reaches the upper 50s to low 60s south where rain reaches first, and upper 60s north where we get to warm up a little longer.
With a strengthening low moving up the coast, the wind will really pick up throughout this afternoon and evening. Expect an east southeast wind of 10-20 mph plus even stronger gusts. Downsloping along the western side of the southern/central Green Mountains will allow for gusts of 30-50 mph in towns such as Killington, Rutland, Ripton, Underhill, Jericho, Bennington and Wallingford. A Wind Advisory is in effect for western Windham, Bennington, Rutland, eastern Addison and eastern Chittenden counties. Watch for downed tree limbs and possible power outages.
Tonight through Friday morning, rain will be the most widespread and steady with 0.5" up to 1" expected as a two-day total. Showers wind down as we wrap up the work week on Friday afternoon. The temp likely hovers in the 50s all day with a lighter north wind.
Saturday is mostly to partly sunny with the temp reaching into the low 70s. Sunday looks mainly dry, though there is a chance for showers late in the day. Expect the mid 70s there, and then back to the low 70s Monday. Speaking of Memorial Day, we'll be dodging showers once again.
Have an awesome Thursday!
