Weather: Glorious to gloomy (6/12/2019)

Local News
Planner for Thursday June 13 2019

Good Wednesday evening, it was a lovely day!! We had wall-to-wall sunshine and temperatures that climbed into the mid and upper 70s. That’s really close to ‘normal’ for early June but that is all about to change. Some patchy clouds begin to move in Wednesday night and lows will fall into the lower and mid 50s in the warmer valleys. Lows will be in the upper 40s east of the Green Mountains and in the Adirondacks. Patchy fog is possible but shouldn’t be a widespread issue.

Thursday starts off dry but more clouds will begin to fill in by late morning, rain will start after lunchtime.  Showers will last right through the evening commute. While the thunder threat is low, an isolated downpour is certainly possible. Meanwhile, highs will happen during the late morning & early afternoon. Southern Vermont and the upper valley will struggle to even reach 60°.  The rest of the North Country will inch into the low and mid 60s before the rain starts. I wouldn’t call this cold, but after our recent stretch of 70s & 80s, it may feel a little cool & raw.

Friday features spotty rain and high temperatures only climbing into the mid 60s. Remember, average is about 75°! The Vermont Lake Monsters start their 2019 campaign at Centennial at 7:30pm against the Tri-City ValleyCats. There will be showers around but I still think they’re able to get the game in. The thunder threat is low and temps will be on either side of 60° after 7pm.

Father’s day weekend isn’t soaking wet but Sunday looks to be the wetter of the two days. Saturday, showers will be around with most of them along & north of the International Border. The more south you go, rain is still possible, but it should be more hit or miss. Meanwhile, highs get back into the mid 70s. Sunday, scattered rain and perhaps a thunderstorm will move through from morning to early afternoon. Showers linger during the afternoon but should get lighter as the day goes on; highs will be in the low 70s. At this point, don’t cancel outside plans with dad but i’d be prepared for a few rain delays.
