Weather: Heavy rain and t’storms Wednesday night (6/5 AM)

Local News
Heavy rain Wednesday night

Good morning!

If you’re feeling water-logged Wednesday morning, I have some bad news. It’s just the dress rehearsal for heavier showers and thunderstorms that roll through late Wednesday afternoon into tonight. Then, drier, warmer and sunnier weather takes us into the weekend. Here’s the breakdown:

Wednesday – Overnight rain totaled around 0.5″ or less, with the line of showers slowly fizzling out towards midday. Drier, but still very cloudy weather remains through early afternoon as the temp reaches into the 60s north and low 70s south with a light and variable wind.

Tonight – Around 5 PM, all eyes turn back to Skytracker Radar as showers and thunderstorms bubble back up. This, as a cold front advances from the west. Though the front is moving quickly, it is possible for more than one thunderstorm or downpour to train over the same location. If this is the case, 1″ or more of total rainfall could lead to localized flash flooding. Mid 50s.

Thursday – Rain wraps up early, with gradually clearing clouds by lunchtime. That leaves us with a sunny afternoon and a comfortable high temp in the low 70s. North wind around 10 mph.

Friday – Mostly sunny across a majority of our region. However, a backdoor cold front may sag south of Canada bringing a few more clouds to far northern New York and northern Vermont. North-central Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom carry a small chance at a brief, light higher terrain shower. Mid 70s.

Saturday – Mostly sunny. Mid 70s.

Sunday – Mostly sunny. Upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Monday – Mostly sunny. Upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Tuesday – Showers likely. Mid 70s.

Have a great day! Stay dry!
