Welcome to a new month! April showers continue into May with several rounds of rain likely throughout this week and the upcoming weekend.
Early Monday, a warm front lifting north provides light to moderate rain across northern New York and northern and central Vermont and New Hampshire. By mid to late morning, that warm front inches north of the Canadian border; most become drier with stubborn clouds lingering into this afternoon. Showers do, however, persist over southern Quebec for most of the day. The temp reaches the upper 60s to low 70s over northern New York and in the Champlain Valley; upper 50s to low 60s elsewhere.
Tonight, the cold front associated with the same broad low that sent that warm front cruising through, moves in from the west. Between 5 and 7 PM, a line of showers with embedded thunderstorms will pop up in the St. Lawrence Valley and march east overnight.
Rain reaches the Adirondack Coast and Champlain Valley around midnight, and into eastern Vermont and New Hampshire early morning hours on Tuesday.
Within the line of rain, there will likely be a few embedded thunderstorms, with localized strong wind gusts up to around 60 mph and frequent lightning/thunder. The largest chance for strong to severe storms will be in the St. Lawrence Valley to the western Adirondacks, as the line weakens moving east overnight. Low temp, mid 50s.
Tuesday and Wednesday, wrap-around moisture behind the exiting low keeps us cloudy with occasional showers. The temp tops out in the low to mid 60s Tuesday and low to mid 50s Wednesday. Then, if you're itching for some sunshine by this point, Thursday is your day. A high pressure ridge briefly crests overhead bringing mostly to partly sunny skies and seasonable temps in the low 60s.
The next big rainmaker arrives on Friday with widespread rain to close out the week, followed by scattered showers both days this weekend.
Have a great day! Stay dry!
