Weather: From record highs to ice (2/5/2019)

Local News
Winter Weather Advisory Feb 6 2019

It was warm everywhere Tuesday afternoon. Burlington and St. Johnsbury, Vermont both broke records, easily getting into the 50s. Tuesday night will be quiet but cold. Overnight temps will drop into the single digits and teens, we’ll have to be careful of ice again. Occasional gusts of wind may put wind chills in the single digits. High pressure is in control for most of Wednesday. That gives us a seasonably cold and partly sunny day with highs in the 20s and 30s

By Wednesday evening, we’ll be below freezing while our next batch of wintry mix arrives. Sleet, snow and freezing rain will make things slippery through the Thursday morning commute. Snow and ice accumulation won’t be major but I wouldn’t be shocked if there are some delays or cancelations. Thursday afternoon, we get a break from the precip while temperatures will try to warm to near 40°. That said, roads may stay icy through lunchtime.

Thursday night, another system arrives. This one will be warm at first, keeping temperatures in the upper 30s & low 40s through Friday morning. Expect rain in most places while we’re sleeping but light freezing rain remains possible along & east of the Greens. The early drive will feature wet roads, fog and possibly some ice. A cold front then swings through during the day Friday. That’ll push rain to the east and drag in colder air by the afternoon. Leftover rain will turn to snow and end by late evening. Accumulation will be light, if any. Meanwhile, highs in the 40s & 50s will be felt in the morning before crashing into the 20s & 30s during the afternoon. Sound familiar? It’s exactly what happened on Tuesday. Friday night, temps keep falling into the single digits. Any standing water will freeze up, be careful of ice…again.

High pressure will provide quiet weather over the weekend. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny both days with highs in the teens & 20s. Saturday may be a little breezy. Keep the cold weather gear out.

Make it a great week!
