Weather: Quiet Wednesday (6/27/2017)

 Tuesday turned into a pretty active afternoon. Spotty showers and storms got going with the strongest putting down decent sized hail. The biggest report we had locally was golf ball sized from Elizabethtown, NY. Now that we're well beyond sunset storms continue to weaken and showers will end after midnight. Skies will partially clear and lows will drop into the 40s & low to mid 50s.


Wednesday is looking to be the driest day of the week. Expect a solid mix of sun and clouds with the smallest chance at showers. With the weather we've had recently, that's tough to beat! Highs will be comfortable in the mid 70s but unfortunately, this kind of weather doesn't stick around but you know what does???? You guessed it... rain! Overnight into Thursday, we'll get mostly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s. Showers start to move in by early Thursday afternoon only to get heavier & steadier as the day goes on. Temperatures will be on the rise starting Thursday with highs reaching the mid 70s, just slightly under average for this time of year. 

As June comes to a close, Friday will start on the mild side with temps in the mid 60s. Skies will stay mostly cloudy but highs will continue to climb into the low 80s. Scattered showers and storms will be going again Friday afternoon. Adding to all of it, humidity will go up and a front is in the area; could be a recipe for severe storms. The threat now is low but it is definitely worth watching. Thinking ahead toward the weekend, we'll keep scattered showers and thunder around on Saturday and Sunday. Coupled with the rain that falls on Thursday, we may be looking at a flash flood risk. Rivers, creeks and streams will need to be monitored. I know many towns, groups and families will be celebrating the 4th over the weekend and unfortunately, you'll be contending with rain and thunder. Monday, we start to settle down but a few showers will linger during the day. This is a positive turn for the July 3rd Independence Day Celebration at the Burlington Waterfront. I'm certainly not saying it's going to be 100% dry but trends are pointing drier.
