Good Wednesday morning! Happy hump day!
Time for a dip in the pond! Mother Nature cranks the heat up Wednesday; the high temp could hit 90 degrees! If Burlington does indeed see 90 degrees, it would be the tenth time so far this summer. The average number of days that warm is just five; but the record is 26 days.
After the stubborn fog finally lifts from sheltered, protected river valleys Wednesday morning, it's blue sky and sunshine for the rest of the day. South wind 5-10 mph. Highs for most reach well into the mid to upper 80s, with a few "lucky" (yes, you're sensing some sarcasm there) spots hitting 90 degrees.
Wednesday evening, clouds will begin to increase as a weak frontal boundary sags south out of Quebec. There may be an isolated overnight shower (or even a clap of thunder or two) that reaches northern New York or Vermont, leftover from daytime convection in Canada.
Otherwise, Thursday is partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers, along with a slight chance for a few isolated thunderstorms, thanks to the continued southward progression of that front. Highs Thursday reach the low 80s.
The good news for the weekend is that medium-range weather forecast models have been trending drier, taking several disturbances through southern New England instead of northern New York, Vermont and New Hampshire. It's still a wait-and-see type of situation, but your outdoor plans are increasingly likely to go off with a hitch Friday through Sunday. Stay tuned!
Have a fantastic day!
