We’re starting to get more and more “springy” type news like graduation ceremonies and the Notch Road opening for the season. However, there’s still nearly 5 feet of snow on the ground at the Mt. Mansfield stake. It was down to 4 feet earlier this week, then Monday night happened and the summit, according to the National Weather Service, got close to a foot.
Wednesday night, scattered showers will continue, especially in northern New York & central/southern Vermont. Northern Vermont & New Hampshire may see a few showers but most of them will stay across western areas. Everyone will have mostly cloudy skies with lows falling into the upper 30s & low 40s; the NEK will be a little chillier.
The stage will be set for a decent Thursday. We’re looking at a mix of sun & clouds during the day while we stay mainly dry, highs will get into the upper 50s & low 60s. Thursday night, another round of rain approaches after midnight and continues Friday. Temps by Friday morning will be in the middle 40s, that means everything that falls from mountain top to valley floor will be plain rain.
This Friday will be the 5th Friday in a row with rain. I still don’t think we’re getting washed out but there will be plenty of showers to dodge under cloudy skies. Meanwhile, thanks to clouds and rain, highs will only get into the low 60s. Thinking ahead to the weekend, it’s kind of a good news, bad news scenario. The good news is that Saturday continues to look dry with peeks of sun, highs will be in the low to mid 60s. The bad news is that Sunday is trending a little wetter with spotty showers around. It won’t be raining all day or everywhere but umbrellas, rain gear and wipers will be needed from time to time. Sunday’s highs will stay the course, only reaching the low 60s. Rain becomes steady Sunday night and continues all day Monday. Monday’s highs will be a little warmer despite the clouds and rain, we’ll make it close to 70°
I hope you’re making it a great week!
