It’s been a wet May, that’s not breaking news but when you put numbers to it, you notice we’re not just a few drops above normal. Burlington has well over 5″ in the rain bucket through the 28th. Normal in that time is about 2.50-3.50″. Tuesday night, as temps fall more into the 40s and rain moves away, pockets of fog form. Some of it may be thick, be careful.
Wednesday morning will be cloudy but expect to see at least a few peeks of sun by the afternoon. The wind will be light out of the southwest at 5-7mph allowing highs to get back into the 60s & low 70s. Quiet weather continues overnight Wednesday & Thursday morning, lows will be in the low 50s. Thursday starts beautifully under lots of sun and that continues most of the day! Expect highs in the low 70s areawide behind a south wind going at 10-15mph.
Our next batch of showers arrives Thursday night through Friday morning. This will be a quick mover that doesn’t soak us but it’ll certainly be annoying at times. Skies stay cloudy overnight with lows in the low 50s. Rain will wrap up early Friday with clearing skies through the afternoon; highs will be in the mid 60s. Northwest winds will be gusty at times making it feel a little raw.
Saturday through Tuesday we’ll stay slightly unsettled with a daily shot at showers. I wouldn’t call any of the days washouts but you may have a few rain delays to contend with. Meanwhile, highs will be in the middle & upper 60s with lows on either side of 50°.
Have a great week!
