I hope everyone had a great Monday! Monday night, temperatures will continue to fall while widespread valley rain and mountain snow take over. Some of the rain may come down a little heavy at times. Meanwhile, snow levels will drop to about 1000′ by Tuesday morning. Wet flakes and a few sleet pellets may make it to valley floors from time to time but to find anything accumulating, you’ll have to go above 1000′. Lows will be in the 30s to near 40°.
Valley rain and mountain snow continue through the day Tuesday but will gradually become more showery. Skies will stay mostly cloudy and highs will struggle, only reaching the middle & upper 40s. That’ll put us nearly 20° below normal and perhaps in the record books. If Burlington doesn’t get to 51°, it’ll be the coldest the high has ever been on May 14. Tuesday night, rain & snow taper off and much of the night will be dry but chilly with lows in the middle & upper 30s. Expect patchy frost in at least the Adirondacks and coldest spots of the Greens.
Wednesday to Friday we stay slightly unsettled under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Each day there’s a chance at passing showers but none of the days appear to be washouts. Highs will get a little warmer each day going from the mid 50s Wednesday to the low to mid 60s by Friday; lows will be in the 40s. Thinking ahead to the weekend, highs are trending back to near normal in the middle & upper 60s with still a few passing showers around.
Make it a great week!
