Wednesday is not a washout per se, but the beautiful sunshine of Tuesday afternoon becomes a distant memory. Increasing clouds throughout the morning eventually lead to scattered light to moderate showers as a warm front lifts north this afternoon. The temp tops out in the 40s with a light north wind of 5-10 mph.
Overnight and into early Thursday, a cold front swings by from west to east with a few embedded downpours. Rainfall totals through tomorrow mid-morning range from 0.5″ up to 1.0. Overnight low, near 40 degrees.
Rain wraps up around 8-10 AM Thursday, but clouds hang tough and the chance for any late day sunshine or clearing (like we saw Tuesday) is much slimmer. Near 50 degrees. Light and variable wind. It’s mostly cloudy Thursday night, too, with a low temp in the lower 40s.
Rain returns Friday with a quick-moving low dragging a front through the North Country. An additional quick 0.5″ of rain falls. This will lead to 1-3′ rises on area rivers, and Lake Champlain likely crossing into moderate flood stage. Mid 50s Friday afternoon.
The weekend is shaping up to be drier, warmer and sunnier. A mix of sun and clouds will be found overhead Saturday and Sunday with a max temp in the low 60s. There’s a chance late Saturday for a few light showers in southern Vermont and New Hampshire, but overall, it’s pretty pleasant.
Have a wonderful day!
