Good morning! Happy Friday!
Rain will taper off Friday afternoon, though an isolated downpour or non-severe thunderstorm is possible, with quieter weekend weather on the way. Then, more rain by Monday and Tuesday.
Steady, widespread rain Friday morning is followed up by a quieter, drier afternoon. An isolated, brief downpour or weak thunderstorm is possible, but it’s just cloudy for most. Rain totals 0.5-1.5″ with localized flooding, but not widespread, possible. The temp reaches into the mid and upper 50s, to low 60s, with a breezy southeast wind of 10-20 mph, gusting to near 30 mph. Around Lake Champlain, wave action may further push water up onto immediately adjacent properties and roads.
Tonight into Saturday, gradual clearing takes place with breaks of sunshine likely late morning into the afternoon. The temp drops into the 40s overnight, then climbs to the upper 50s by the afternoon with a comfortable northwest breeze of 10-15 mph. Saturday night, we’re down in the 30s with patchy frost possible in protected mountain hollows.
Mother’s Day Sunday starts quiet and sunny, with the temp reaching near 60 degrees before thin, high clouds increase by the afternoon. There’s a slight chance late in the day for a light shower along the Massachusettes border in far southern Vermont and southern New Hampshire. Rain lifts north Monday and Tuesday.
Have a fabulous day and an even better weekend!
