Weather: Snow Winds Down, Temps Go Up (2/16/2017)

It's really remarkable how much snow has fallen since Saturday, February 11. Burlington's picked up 25.9" since then, Rutland, VT: 8", Island Pond, VT: 28.5", Malone, NY: 15". Many spots have been blasted well beyond last season's total already! Example, Island Pond is up over 107" for the season, last year they only managed 59.4".

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thursday. Snow continues to get squeezed out along the western side of the Green mountains. This will continue through midnight before tapering off. Added accumulation will be around a dusting to 2". Meanwhile, temperatures will be falling steadily into the middle & upper teens by Friday morning. Friday, there won't be any weather related issues aside from some solar glare. Thanks to the fresh snow pack, it may be a bit brighter; sunglasses on! We're looking at partly to mostly sunny skies through the afternoon with highs, similar to Thursday, in the middle & upper 20s. Friday night, you're good to go with no weather worries. Skies will be partly cloudy with lows in the mid teens.

Saturday & Sunday will be springy! We'll spend most of Saturday under mostly sunny skies with highs firmly in the 40s. Later Saturday evening, clouds increase, especially over the extreme north country. A few light rain or snow showers are possible. I wouldn't call this plan canceling stuff but it's enough to be a little annoying.

Sunday will be similar to Saturday and perhaps a few degrees warmer. Also, there's a shot at some light mountain/rain or snow showers during the day. If you've got mountain plans, don't worry about these. They should be short lived and light. Valleys will stay dry and warm again with highs in the 40s; southern Vermont & New Hampshire may get to 50°!

If your weekend extends into Presidents' Day, pleasant weather will follow you. It'll be a few degrees colder in the 30s but skies will be mostly sunny.

The weekend is in view, enjoy!
