Weather: Another Friday with rain (5/16/2019)

Local News
Planner for Friday May 17 2019

Thursday afternoon turned out to be stunning! Many of us saw sunshine and highs got well into the upper 50s & low to mid 60s. The evening was perfect for the 36th Corporate Cup 5k run/walk. It was beautiful to see the daffodils and trees in bloom under a mostly sunny sky, next to the Golden Dome. Thursday night, another round of rain approaches after midnight and continues Friday. Temps by Friday morning will be in the middle 40s, that means everything that falls from mountain top to valley floor will be plain rain.

This Friday will be the 5th Friday in a row with rain. I still don’t think we’re getting washed out but there will be plenty of showers to dodge under cloudy skies. The wettest part of the day will be in the morning before rain tapers to isolated showers during the afternoon. Meanwhile, we’ll get back into the low to mid 60s while south winds go at 5-15+mph. If you’ve got Friday evening or Friday night plans, you should be good to go. The good news is that Saturday continues to look dry with peeks of sun, highs will be in the low to mid 60s. The bad news is that Sunday is trending a little wetter. It won’t be raining all day or everywhere but umbrellas, rain gear, and wipers will be needed from time to time. The focus for widespread rain will be along the international border. Rain will become more scattered to isolated the more south you go, and as a result, it’ll be warmer across central & southern spots. Expect the North Country to get into the low to mid 60s. Where it’s drier, highs will cruise into the 70s, likely south of Middlebury. Rain becomes steady Sunday night and continues all day Monday. I can’t rule out a rumble of afternoon thunder either. Monday’s highs will be a little warmer despite the clouds and rain, we’ll make it into the low to mid 70s.

The weekend is nearly here!
