Weather: Warm with a Side of Thunder (9/13/2017)

It felt a little more like summer on Wednesday didn't it? Burlington hit at least 80° for the first time since August 22. Remember that day? It was 87°! We've been in the 70s ever since. Remember, average highs are in the low 70s in mid September and we've got more warm weather coming before we get to the weekend.

Overnight into Thursday, clouds get thicker and we stay mostly dry & mild; lows will be close to 60°. I say 'mostly dry' because a few showers will spread into southern Vermont & New Hampshire while we're sleeping. Thursday & Friday, the leftover moisture from Irma will move across southern New England & the Mid-Atlantic. It'll be close enough to us to spark spotty showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms each day. We're not looking at a severe weather threat but since we're dealing with tropical moisture, downpours will certaintly be possible. The more north you go, the drier it gets. Highs both days will be in the middle & upper 70s. Over the weekend, high pressure regains control. I still can't rule out a shower here or there but over 90% of us will be mostly sunny and comfortable with highs in the mid 70s.

The latest trends with Hurricane Jose keep it out to sea by the weekend and early next week. These trends are encouraging for us but there's still a chance it jogs back west as a tropical storm. We have to keep a close eye on it.

I hope you're having a great week!
