Weather: Storms Southern/Eastern VT into NH (6/19 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning!

Several thunder boomers rolled through northern New York and western Vermont Sunday evening. Monday, it's southern and eastern Vermont and New Hampshire under the gun for strong storms and heavy rain.

Throughout the morning Monday, we have a mix of sun and clouds overhead with the occasional shower rolling through. Temps will climb from the mild mid 60s and low 70s to around 80° with a south wind of 5-15 mph. By midday, we will have had enough daytime heating and instability to start fueling more thunderstorms. The boundary along and ahead of which those storms form will be far enough east that the biggest threat for severe weather and heavy rainfall stretches from southern Vermont to the Green Mountains and points east.

With a big focus on southern and eastern Vermont, east into New Hampshire, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a 'Slight' and even an 'Enhanced Risk' for severe weather. Strong to severe storms are capable of producing frequent lightning, damaging wind gusts and hail.

There is also a Flash Flood Watch in effect midday through this evening with numerous showers and thunderstorms tapping into the juicy, moisture-rich atmosphere to dump 1-2" (or more) of rain. A few towns could see multiple 1"+ thunderstorms. Urban street flooding, washed out culverts or dirt roads, and fast, high streams and smaller waterways are all possible impacts we'll be watching for this afternoon.

 

Tuesday through Saturday, an upper level trough parks itself over the Northeast yet again. You know what this means...we have an almost daily chance for scattered showers, plus an isolated afternoon thunderstorm or two. There will be plenty of dry stretches, though, and temps stay warm in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Have a great day!
