Good morning!

In what has been a very active severe weather month, more storms are on the way for this last week of July. Some storms Monday afternoon may be strong to severe. It's all thanks to an area of low pressure passing to our north, dragging a warm front and cold front through the North Country. 

Monday morning, a few spotty showers will roll through under partly sunny skies as a warm front lifts from south to north. That warm front will allow temperatures to sky rocket in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees, as well as bring more low level moisture. Dew points climb into the 60s.

With the added heat and humidity, the atmosphere is primed and ready for afternoon thunderstorms to fire along the cold front. Between 2 PM and sunset, numerous, scattered showers and thunderstorms will pop up. Some storms may be strong to severe, producing hail, strong wind gusts, heavy rain and frequent lightning.

There is a 'Marginal Risk' for severe weather from northern New York through Vermont and into western New Hampshire. While today starts out with beautiful, warm weather that may have you anxious to get outdoors, be sure to not put yourself in an unsafe situation with stormy weather this afternoon.

Tonight, rain winds down after sunset with clouds gradually clearing through Tuesday morning. Low temps hit the upper 60s. Tuesday, a few brief showers may linger across the northern Green Mountains and Northeast Kingdom, but most are dry and cooler with a mix of sun and clouds overhead. Quiet weather midweek is followed up by more scattered showers (along with a few thunderstorms) late in the week.

Have a great day! Play it safe!
