Weather: Just a Few More Quiet Days (10/3 AM)

Good morning!

Several fronts move through midweek into the weekend spelling out a very unsettled stretch for the North Country. Up until that point, it's dry and quiet with ample sunshine and comfortable Fall temps.

Mostly sunny Tuesday once morning valley fog lifts. The temp tops out 2-3° warmer than yesterday, in the upper 60s to low 70s. As the pressure gradient tightens between high pressure sliding off to the east and a front approaching from the west, southerly winds kick up this afternoon to 5-15 mph. An occasional 20-30 mph gust is possible in the St. Lawrence and Champlain Valleys. Tonight, mostly clear. Upper 40s to mid 50s.

Wednesday starts out sunny with clouds trickling in ahead of a cold front from the northwest. With increasing clouds, there is an opportunity for a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm over northern New York and the Champlain Valley Wednesday afternoon and evening, but most rain holds off until late. The temp cruises into the upper 70s with a still breezy south wind.

Wednesday night into Thursday, the front sweeps through dumping around 0.5" of rain, give or take a few tenths. Some overnight strong wind gusts are possible. Showers, clouds and strong wind all winds down Thursday. Partly to mostly sunny. Low 70s. That front stalls out to our south on Friday. There is still a small chance at a passing shower, but most are dry and partly sunny. Cooler, mid 60s.

Into the weekend, we're facing a few rounds of showers Saturday and Sunday with a warm front and cold front. It doesn't appear at this point like it will be a washout through Columbus Day, but it is certainly a period to keep the rain jacket on you or at the very least in the car. Uncertainty in the forecast will be hammered out the closer we get.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
