I hope everyone had a great Thursday! It was one of those good nap days under lots of clouds, drizzle and fog. Temperatures struggled all day, most of us topped out in the low to mid 40s. It was a far cry from where we were May 2, 2018 when highs soared into the 80s! Burlington set a record high of 88°! Thursday night, it’s more of the chilly, foggy, dreary same. Expect lots of clouds and pockets of fog; temperatures will slowly fall into the upper 30s & low 40s.
Friday will start mainly dry but showers move into northern New York by late morning. They’ll cross Vermont & New Hampshire during the afternoon & evening. Expect a mostly cloudy day with highs in the mid 50s. Showers will come to an end overnight through early Saturday, lows will be in the mid 40s. You won’t get washed out of Friday night plans but they may be a little damp. The stage will be set for a decent start to the weekend. We’re not looking at full sunshine on Saturday but there will be a solid mix of sun & clouds with highs in the upper 50s & low to mid 60s! Woo!
Saturday night, clouds get a little thicker but the night stays dry with lows in the mid 40s. Sunday, an area of low pressure will cruise across southern New England. It will be close enough to throw clouds across our skies and showers into central & southern Vermont & New Hampshire. The Champlain Valley will likely stay dry but the more south you go, you’ll run into showers but you won’t get soaked. Meanwhile, highs stay the course in the low 60s.
The showery pattern continues Monday to Thursday with hit or miss rain each day. The rainiest days will likely be Wednesday and Thursday.
The weekend is in view!
