Rain, rain go away… I’m sure a lot of folks are saying that right about now.
Well, the April showers have become May showers, and unfortunately, this rainy pattern we’ve been stuck in doesn’t look to let up for a few more days.
A warm front lifted to our north this morning, providing the area with a few scattered light rain shower, much of it didn’t even reach the ground.
Showers will become more numerous as night falls as the associated cold front scoots across the region. Expect rain with a few heavier embedded downpours overnight. Wouldn’t be to surprise if a few folks hear a rumble of thunder or two.
Temperatures overnight will fall to the low 40’s.
Rain, for the most part, wraps up during the morning Thursday, but clouds hang tight throughout the day. Temperatures climb to the low 50’s.
In terms of rainfall totals, expect anywhere between 0.5” and 1.0” with locally higher amounts. The rivers will be running high and fast but are expected to stay within their banks. Lake Champlain, on the other hand, will likely rise to moderate flood stage, only adding insult to injury along the shoreline in already flooded areas.
Our next system arrives for Friday, bringing another shot for rain by afternoon.
On the bright side, the sun looks to make an appearance for the weekend with high pressure building into the region!
