Weather: Wintry Mix Overnight & Damaging Wind Gusts Tomorrow

Torrance's Forecast Discussion

Torrance's Forecast: - As the weekend comes to an end, the forecast to start the week isn't looking any better. Winter Weather Advisories will continue into the overnight hours. That will be followed by Wind Advisories and High Wind Warnings for all of Monday. With the wind gusting to 50-70 MPH widespread power outages are likely, plan ahead!

Overnight: The first part of the night will be quiet with a few isolated showers through midnight. Temperatures will hold steady in the upper 20s to low 30s during the predawn hours. Warmer air aloft will allow for rain across most of western Vermont and New York's North Country. Colder air will be trapped across eastern Vermont, and that rain will fall through a freezing layer near the surface. Freezing rain will be a problem for those east of the Green Mountains. Additionally, a tenth to two-tenths of ice accumulation is likely. The Winter Weather Advisory will expire at 8 am, Monday. 

Monday: Temperatures will slowly climb from the mid-30s to the low 40s. Allowing for the rest of the wintry mix and freezing rain to switch over to plain rain. Wind will begin to pick up around sunrise on Monday, High Wind Warnings for the western slopes of the Green Mountains. This includes eastern Franklin, Chittenden, Addison Counties, along with all of Rutland, and Bennington Counties. Finally, western Windham County. Here we could see winds sustained between 30-40 MPH with occasional gusts to 50 MPH, and localized gusts over 70 MPH.The eastern Champlain Valley, the northwestern slopes of the Adirondack Mountains, and all of western New Hampshire are under a Wind Advisory. Here the wind will be sustained between 20-30 MPH with occasional gusts to 50 MPH.

Tree damage will lead to widespread power outages across the region. Be prepared for long durations without power, remember line crews can't restore power when the wind is howling.

Monday Night: Rain will slowly come to an end, and the wind will also diminish. Overnight lows will fall to the low and middle 30s. The wind direction will become more out of the south, and decrease to 5-15 MPH.  

Tuesday-Friday: Still looking at an active week with daily shots of valley rain and mountain wintry mix. Daytime highs will climb into the middle and upper 40s with overnight lows int he low to middle 30s.

Next Weekend: For now the forecast is looking quiet with more sun than clouds, and near seasonable highs. Daytime reaches the low 50s, and overnight lows are in the middle 30s.
