Weather: Spring to Summer (5/15/2017)

Monday wasn't a horrible weather day but it did end with some spotty showers. If you've still got some rain lingering by your place, it'll be ending as the night goes on. At the same time, clouds will break away and temperatures will fall; lows Tuesday morning will be around 50°.

Tuesday will be flat out beautiful and a delicious taste of spring! Expect increasing sun through the day with highs closing in on 70°. Remember, our average or 'normal', highs are in the upper 60s. Tuesday night, we'll have a mix of clear skies & cloudiness with lows very mild, only falling into the low to mid 50s.

Wednesday & Thursday will be straight up summery! We'll keep a good amount of sunshine both days but highs will skyrocket into the 80s! Wednesday will be in the low 80s, Thursday is when we have our best shot at 90°. At this point we should be able to get there in the southern Champlain Valley & the Upper Valley. Burlington's record high is 89°, our forecast is 88°. It'll be close! Mugginess will come up but it won't be horrible. It'll be noticeable but not horrible with dew points close to 60°. The closer the dew point gets to 65°, the muggier it'll feel.

Wednesday will be dry but by Thursday evening, we'll have to be careful of thunderstorms. The first to get them Thursday afternoon and where storms will be strongest, is northwest New York. They'll approach the Champlain Valley and western Vermont around or after sunset. The later the storms move in, the less intense they'll be. At this point, the severe weather threat appears low but gusty winds, heavy rain and lightning are all threats Thursday evening & Thursday night.

Showers will linger into the first part of Friday before clearing, drying & cooling. Friday afternoon & Saturday look great but crisp in comparison. Highs both days will be in the middle & upper 60s. Sunday, another disturbance brings another round of showers.

Have a great week!
