Weather: Drier Until the Weekend (5/10/2017)

Remember how cool May 2016 started? I forgot! Highs in the 70s, 80s & 90s make you forget cold quick! I'm sure a lot of you remember that they had to stop the Vermont City Marathon early on May 29; it was 88° that day. This year. there are still good signs of a warm up to end May 2017. 90s like last year? Hopefully not but we'll see.

 

Wednesday night, we'll stay mostly cloudy and mainly dry. I can't rule out a shower here or there but anything that does fall will be very light and isolated. Meanwhile, overnight lows will fall to around 40°. Thursday and Friday will be similar and a couple degrees warmer each day. Highs will close in on 60° under partly sunny skies. I've still got to leave in an isolated shower here or there but they will not be soakers, that comes later.

Mother's Day weekend keeps trending grayer and wetter. We're watching a storm that will be riding north into coastal New England. It's looking more likely that we'll have a Nor'easter on our hands that will deliver widespread rain Saturday and Sunday. Timing is likely to be adjusted as we get closer but it looks like scattered showers will spread over northern New York by early Saturday afternoon. They'll move east as the afternoon approaches the evening. If you've got outdoor plans with mom, try to squeeze them in Saturday morning. Rain, steady and at times moderate to heavy will be here Saturday evening through Sunday morning; this is the rainiest part of the weekend. Clouds and rain will keep Sunday's highs chilly, only reaching the 50s.

Scattered rain continues Sunday afternoon & Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday, these are the days we've been waiting for all month. We'll finally be dry with highs in the 60s, if not the low 70s by Wednesday.

Hang in there, it'll warm back up.....eventually.
