Good morning! Happy Spring!
New season, same old weather shenanigans. Despite a sunshine-filled and seasonable Monday, this week brings a couple of huge temperatures swings, as well as the occasional snow shower or snow squall.
Monday, however, nice and quiet. Morning clouds will give way to mostly sunny skies. Seasonable afternoon temps hit the low to mid 40s with a light and variable wind. This afternoon, you will notice more clouds creeping in from west to east with a few overnight snow showers or snow squalls. The chance for scattered snow continues into Tuesday morning. Though squalls may cause slick roads and rapid changes in visibility, just a dusting to around 1" is expected. Tonight, the low dips to near 30 degrees.
Tuesday, morning snow showers or squalls will clear up with sunrise. Look for a mix of sun and clouds with a high temp in the low to mid 40s. Light northwest wind. Tuesday evening, another round of scattered showers, rain or snow, will spread from west to east. Again, showers will be rather hit-or-miss in nature with not much accumulation to write home about. With this frontal passage, temps take a big tumble, down into the single digits or low teens early Wednesday.
Wednesday, partly sunny skies with a few mountain snow showers. The bigger story, how cold it will be! Temps hold steady in the teens. It may be pushing it to even hit 20° in the Champlain Valley! This goes along with a northwest wind at 10-15 mph. Brrr!
Thursday, a quiet day to recover from our early Spring snow and cold. Temps reach near 30°, about 10-15° below average, under sunny skies.
Friday and Saturday, we warm up again with highs in the 40s to near 50°. There will be scattered showers, too, likely rain. By Sunday, it's a dizzying switch back to snow with a cooler temp in the 30s.
Have a fantastic day!
