Happy Friday!! We made it to the weekend! Friday featured more of the same with partly cloudy skies and scattered rain. Meanwhile, highs could not even get to 70° in most spots. Here’s your friendly reminder that average is about 76°! Fortunately for us, we have some improvements on the way over Father’s Day weekend. Friday night, if you have any plans, maybe you’re heading to the Lake Monsters home opener at Centennial Field, you’ll start to notice those improvements as the game goes on. We may contend with a shower or three around First pitch at 7:05 but, by the last out, we’re dry with temperatures hovering on either side 60°.
Overnight into Saturday, we remain partly cloudy with temperatures dipping into the mid and upper 50s. Apart from a few areas of fog, it’ll be pretty quiet. Over the weekend we’ll dodge rain but it’s not a total wash. Saturday, we may have a few showers in the morning before sunrise but after that, most of the day will be dry. If rain tries to get organized, it’ll be along the border and in far northwest New York. Otherwise, we’re looking at amix of sun and clouds with highs climbing back into the mid & upper 70s. The more south you go, the warmer it’ll be. In fact, there’s an outside shot that some in southern Vermont hit 80°. Helping to make the weekend grade a C+ is the wind, it’ll be strong out of the south on Saturday at 10-20mph. That’s going to churn up Lake Champlain during the fishing derby.
Rain will become more widespread Saturday night into Sunday morning; lows will be in the upper 50s. Father’s Day Sunday is a tad wetter than Saturday but there will still be dry time and it’ll be less windy. Areas of rain will be over the Champlain Valley in the morning but will work south and east throughout the course of the day. While all that is going on, skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures in the upper 60s & lower to mid 70s.
Monday & Tuesday, we still have a chance of a spot shower but rain will be very hit or miss. Temperatures will stay the course around normal, climbing into the mid 70s. Wednesday once again looks to be the pick of the week. (Sound familiar?). It’ll be the lone 100% dry day under a mix of sun and clouds; highs stay comfy, cozy in the mid 70s. This year, dry days have been hard to string together and next week will be no different. Spotty rain returns Thursday and Friday while temps stay in the mid 70s.
Have a great Weekend and Happy Father’s Day!
