Weather: Summer Has Arrived (6/8 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning!

Better late than never, right? Meteorological summer kicked off on June 1st; but it has taken an entire week past that for us to shrug off the Springtime rain and cool temperatures. 

Thursday is another sunny one with even warmer afternoon temperatures than yesterday, in the upper 70s to low 80s. Light south wind 5-10 mph. There is a slight chance this afternoon for a stray shower or weak thunderstorm, mainly over higher terrain, but most should stay dry. You will notice more puffy, white cumulus clouds than yesterday, however. Clouds will continue to increase overnight with a low in the upper 50s.

Friday, expect a mix of sun and clouds with scattered to numerous showers. Rain won't be all that widespread and shouldn't linger on and on throughout the day. Rather, it's more of a brief shower here, perhaps a downpour there, with breaks in between. The most likely location to see more than one shower, east of the Green Mountains. That top temp for the day is a little cooler thanks to the clouds and rain, in the low to mid 70s. Light west wind.

Saturday and Sunday are shaping up to be pretty nice, very summer-like days. Expect ample sunshine all weekend long with a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms both days. On Sunday, there's a chance for some strong to even severe storms; so heads up if you have outdoor plans. Stay weather aware. Saturday, morning clouds and maybe a lingering shower or two from Friday put us in the mid 70s by the afternoon. Sunday, we're back to the 80s. Early next week, we're roasting! It'll likely reach 90°, or very close to it, Monday and Tuesday.

Have an awesome day!
