We’re about 99 days to Halloween and 5 months to Christmas! If you hate the heat, keep that in mind! Speaking of heat, on Tuesday, Burlington got to 90° for the 11th time this year and the 10th time in July. The 10 in July is good enough for 3rd most all-time in a month in Burlington. August 1944 had the most.
Mugginess and isolated showers continue Tuesday night, lows will be in the 70s. Our next shot at widespread rain arrives Wednesday morning. It’ll start in New York and gradually shift east into Vermont & New Hampshire during the afternoon. There will be embedded downpours and cracks of thunder. Meanwhile, highs will get into the low to mid 80s. The steadiest rain will move east by Thursday morning but isolated to spotty showers and thunder will stick around through Thursday afternoon. Heat and humidity continue with highs in the low 80s. We should pick up another .50-1″ of rain between the two days. Still not enough for you? There will be isolated higher amounts close to 2″.
STILL not enough rain? Well, the messy, unsettled, hot, muggy, Floridian pattern continues on Friday. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms to get going during the afternoon. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the severe threat but as of now, it appears low. That said, lightning, downpours and wind gusts near/over 40mph will be possible in the strongest storms.
Rain and thunder continue Friday night but gradually end Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon is trending drier but we still may have to contend with a couple passing showers. What you’ll notice the most is a drop in humidity. It won’t be a big crash of refreshment but it will be enough to make sleeping and being outside a little easier. For now, Sunday looks good before we get back into an unsettled pattern next week.
I hope you’re having a great week!
