Hello Folks! 

Thursday was a beautiful day, wouldn't you say? Comfortable temperatures, and a nice breeze. Don't get used to it, as the battle between two systems will give way to more clouds and increased chances for rain into our weekend. For tonight an area of high pressure across southern Quebec has given us mainly clear skies, and clouds will slowly increase from the south this evening and into the overnight hours. Also tonight after midnight there will be a chance to view the northern lights! The best chance to view them would be across northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire... if you see them send us pictures and videos! Overnight lows across the region will fall to the low to mid 40s for the NEK and ADKs, mid to upper 40s for the Champlain Valley, and southern Vermont/ New Hampshire. 

Friday we are looking for a mix of sun and clouds with more clouds expected across southern Vermont/ New Hampshire and the southern portion of the Adirondacks. This area will also have the highest chance for a spotty shower. For this same region high temperatures will only climb to the low 60s. Across northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire the day time highs will likely range from mid to upper 60s. Come Friday evening/night clouds are increasing and becoming mostly cloudy with a spot shower. 

For this weekend the area of low pressure will move northeast and bring the area mostly cloudy to overcast conditions with scattered rain. Day time highs will likely reach the mid to upper 60s and overnight lows from the upper 40s to low 50s. Comparing the two days, Sunday will have the higher chance for scattered rain. 

Have a great night!
