Weather: Swapping snow for sunshine (2/19 AM)

Local News
Tuesday February 19th

Good morning!

Well, the title says it all! Yesterday’s snow is now today’s sunshine. It’ll be chilly, however, with temperatures running some 10-15 degrees below average for mid to late February. That’s a morning low near and slightly below zero, and an afternoon high temp in the upper teens to low 20s. Northwest wind 5-15 mph. Tonight, mostly clear with a low temp again straddling zero. Wednesday, a morning mix of sun and clouds, with increasing clouds winning out, and a high temp in the mid to upper 20s.

Wednesday night into Thursday, our next messy mix commences. Light snow will change over to freezing rain and sleet briefly Thursday morning, then scattered areas of drizzle during the day. While the details are still a bit fuzzy, 1-4″ of snow is likely east of the Green Mountains (with a dusting to 1″ in eastern New York and western Vermont). Icing of a few hundredths of an inch to around 0.10″ (mainly over southern Vermont and New Hampshire counties) could have you sliding around on the drive into work. Total precip amounts, regardless of precip type, however, are light, generally less than 0.40″. High temp Thursday, upper 30s to low 40s. Friday and Saturday, then, are quiet and milder in the mid to upper 30s.

Have a terrific Tuesday!
