Sick of the cold? Well, if so, good news... it won't be as cold over the next few days. If you love the cold, well, also good news... it won't get too warm over the next few days.

Here's the setup. High pressure will ridge in over our area Thursday, providing ample sunshine. As that High moves east, we pick up a more southerly atmospheric flow, allowing temps to come up for the next few days. Most temps will reach the 20s Thursday and Friday, with some 30s moving in for the valleys and southern VT/NH by Friday and the weekend.

Meanwhile, a storm system will eject out of the Ohio River Valley Saturday, and move almost directly overhead Saturday night. This will bring precipitation in Saturday afternoon and Saturday night, lingering into Sunday morning. The question lies in just how much warmth can sneak in. Low pressure circulates counterclockwise, so if you can picture a low approaching from our southwest, our winds would come from the south ahead of the storm and pull in milder temps. If the temp becomes warm enough, some rain may mix in. Right now, that looks probable for southern VT and southern NH. If the weather models continue to trend that system farther north (as they've been doing) warmer air, and therefore more rain mixes in. Time will tell and we'll keep the forecast updated right here on mychamplainvalley.com/weather as we go.
