Good morning all!
Today is starting out on a very familiar note. Just like Monday, it's cold, it's sunny and it's quiet. But all three of those things will change throughout the day as a more active and unsettled weather pattern unfolds. Temperatures this morning are between 10 and 20 degrees under mostly clear skies. Throughout the morning, clouds will continue to fill in from the southwest as a warm front inches a little closer. Those clouds bring scattered rain showers and high temperatures near 40 degrees.
There is a narrow window of time around midday when temperatures will still be below freezing and a light freezing drizzle or sleet is possible. Little to no ice accumulation is expected, however, with air and surface temperatures quickly surpassing that 32 degree mark this afternoon.
Scattered rain showers continue overnight with a brief break in the action Wednesday morning, before a cold front ramps those rain chances back up by Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures tonight remain nearly steady in the upper 30s with highs tomorrow reaching the mid 40s.
Following that front, you guessed it, cooler air filters in and we will be monitoring a changeover from rain showers to snow showers, mainly above 1000 ft. There are still several days and model runs in between now and Thursday, but as of today, it seems 3-6" of new snow wouldn't be out of the question for the Adirondacks, northern Greens and the Northeast Kingdom.
This weekend, high pressure is back and so is the sun!
Stay warm and dry today folks!
