Good afternoon/evening everyone, hope your weekend is off to a great start! It’s been a fairly quiet weather day, and still rather cold! But I do hope you made the best of it. On Friday we were talking about flood risks on area rivers, those have all since expired! Moving forward, we will see temperatures fluctuate, but for the most part still remain below freezing. We also will have two shots of snow over the next couple of days, then another resurgence of cold arctic air.
Saturday night into Sunday morning temperatures will hold steady in the teens, then quickly climb Sunday afternoon. Thanks to what is called ‘warm air advection’ we will see temperatures climb to the upper 20s and the low 30s. At times the wind will gust to 20-30mph out of the south. During the late morning light snow showers will be about, then an evening cold front will provide a secondary push for snow! Our models are suggesting similar to a line of summer t-storms a line of brief intense snowfall or snow squalls will move across the region between 5-7pm. While not much snow is expected, generally a dusting up to two inches across the Champlain Valley will be seen. Outside of the valley, you should expect 2-4″, with higher peaks seeing slightly more.
Monday we are quiet, and chilly once again. Expect more sun than clouds, along with highs in the low and middle teens. Clouds will return Monday evening ahead of our next storm. Forecast models are sliding the timing on Tuesday’s snow back a few hours, to the late morning. In previous runs, it had looked like a messy Tuesday morning ride into work, but now it looks like the start will be pushed back to late morning or noon-ish. We should expect light scattered snow, becoming widespread Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. As for snow totals, it’s still a little too early to tell, but I will say this, it doesn’t look like we will get as much as last weekends storm. Lingering snow showers will be about for much of Wednesday night into the day on Thursday.
Friday into next weekend will be more quiet, and much colder! Morning lows look to be well below zero, and afternoon highs in the single digits and lower teens.
Tonight: Partly clear, isolated flurry possible. Overnight low, low and middle teens. Wind: Southeast 5-15mph.
Sunday: Clouds, periods of snow, a chance of an afternoon snow squall. Afternoon highs, the upper 20s, and lower 30s. Windy! Wind: Southwest 15-20mph, gust to 30mph.
Sunday Night: Isolated snow showers, then partial clearing. Diminishing wind as well. Overnight low, 5°/-5°. Wind: Light & Variable.
Monday: Becoming mostly sunny, and chilly. Afternoon highs, single digits to low teens. Wind: South/North 10mph.
Tuesday: Cloudy, snow showers developing late morning. Afternoon high, low 30s. Wind: South 10-15mph.
Wednesday: Snow showers ending, otherwise mostly cloudy. Afternoon high, upper teens to 20°.
Have a great weekend,
