Weather: Quiet Friday, more weekend rain (5/23/2019)

Local News
Planner for Friday May 24 2019

 As the night goes on, remaining storms will weaken as they march east but showers will linger into early Friday. Lows will fall into the upper 40s & low 50s while winds swing around to the northwest and gust over 20mph at times.

After the morning showers move out, the rest of Friday is dry, cool and breezy with highs in the low to mid 60s. Northwest winds will provide a bit of a fall-like feel to the air, still gusting over 20mph. Friday night plans happen without any weather worry under mostly clear skies; lows will be around 50°. Our next widespread rainmaker gets here Saturday but it doesn’t arrive until at least the middle of the afternoon. If you’ve got outdoor plans Saturday, keep them, you won’t get washed out while the sun is up, highs will be in the low 70s. Saturday night, steadier and heavier rain falls and continues through early Sunday morning, lows will be in the upper 50s.

That batch of rain will gradually wrap up early Sunday with partial clearing and drying by mid-morning. This is great news for the Vermont City Marathon. The race starts at 7am, temps will be in the 50s & low 60s with any stubborn showers ending shortly after that. However, after lunch, spotty showers and a few thunderstorms will get popping again. There will be dry time between these showers and storms but there is a lightning threat, keep that in mind if you’re outside. Meanwhile, highs jump back into the low 70s. Memorial Day is trending drier and comfortable again! Expect partly to mostly sunny skies all day with highs on either side of 70°. Tuesday through Thursday we’ll have a daily shot at showers, highs will approach the middle & upper 70s by midweek

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thank you to all the servicewomen, men and families who have served our country.
