Weather: Early Taste of Spring All Week (2/21 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning!

Despite a chilly start to Tuesday, temperatures will climb quickly with warm air surging in ahead of an approaching, weak disturbance. Afternoon high temps reach the low 40s with a breezy south wind of 10-20 mph, gusts to 30 mph. Mostly sunny early with clouds rolling in from west to east this afternoon.

Tonight, spotty, light rain showers zip through between 10 PM and 5 AM. Overnight lows fall to the mid 30s valleys, and low 30s over higher terrain. Where we close in on 32, Adirondacks, Green and White Mountains, plus eastern Vermont, a thin, icy glaze is possible on paved surfaces, though ice accumulation will be minimal.

Wednesday, partly sunny skies with a high temp in the upper 40s. On Thursday, that temp crosses over the 50 degree threshold with another round of scattered, light rain showers, especially across northern New York and northern Vermont.

The next best chance for rain is Friday night into Saturday, and rain will be more widespread this go-around. Saturday will likely bring record-breaking warmth with a high temp in the mid to upper 50s. That's followed by a flash freeze overnight into Sunday as temps dip into the 20s. Sunday, high in the low 30s with scattered snow.

Here's another reminder to keep an eye on low-lying, poor drainage areas and creeks and streams, which may become inundated by melting snow and runoff. The flood threat is low, but worth monitoring.

Have a great day!
