You made it to the weekend, congratulations! We are wrapping up Friday with ominous looking clouds, but not much is really happening. Outside of a spotty shower, of course, nothing significant enough to ruin any evening plans. Clouds will actually start to thin out late this evening remaining mostly clear into Saturday morning. A few of us may wake up to patchy areas of fog, otherwise it’s a quiet morning with temperatures in the middle and upper 40s. 

Saturday starts out with plenty of sunshine, and the temperatures will respond to the amount of sun rather quickly. Temperatures will reach 70° come noon, then those temperatures will sit in the low to middle 70s through the early afternoon. Clouds will return ahead of a warm front that will lift north Saturday evening, providing us with a chance of rain. The best chance of seeing rain will be late Saturday evening into the predawn hours of Sunday. 

Sunday morning we are starting mostly cloudy and dry for the majority of us, models are showing a few minor light showers in the Champlain Valley to get the day going. Temperatures will start in upper 50s Sunday morning and will climb into the low 70s by noon. Those running in the Vermont City Marathon, we will see temperatures in the middle 70s between noon and 3pm, good news dewpoints will remain in the 50s. There is a cold front that will move across the area Sunday afternoon between 3pm & 6pm that could spark up scattered rain or a weak thunderstorm along the front. These storms should move out rather quickly, I wouldn’t go canceling any cookout parties. Though if you find yourself underneath one of these storms you will have to move inside for 10-20 minutes.

Memorial Day we are looking forward to clearing skies as high pressure slides south out of Canada, it will have a refreshing feeling as high temperatures only hit the upper 60s to near 70°.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend,
