9.29.13 Sept. Ends, October Starts Warm

September ends on a warm note, with October starting quite warm as well.
So far, the month of September is averaging just under a degree below average (0.9F to be precise) at Burlington International. With the help of late month warmth, the month will likely end up very near average.

Highs on Sunday reached the mid 70s in the Champlain Valley, including 75 at the airport. The final day of the month, Monday, will also boast highs in the low 70s. That's a good 5-10 degrees above average.

In fact, that warming trend will continue into October. Wednesday looks to be the warmest day of the week, with widespread mid-70s region wide. Even after that, upper 60s and low 70s are likely right into the upcoming weekend.

At the same time, our dry stretch continues. Most cities and towns have now gone 7 days without rain, and it looks like that trend will lengthen.

A weakening cold front to our west, and a coastal storm staying offshore to the east, means we stay dry Monday and Tuesday (but there will be more clouds than we saw this weekend). It's back to plenty of sun as temperatures peak Wednesday, then clouds collect again late week.

Another cold front nears by late Friday and into the weekend- that's our next chance of rain. The timeline on that is quite fuzzy for now, so we'll fine tune the details as we get closer.
