Monday is mostly sunny with an afternoon high temp in the upper 40s to low and mid 50s. Wind, nearly calm. A beautiful day! There will be a few fair weather clouds and those clouds really thicken up this evening and tonight as temps dip into the low and mid 30s.
Tuesday morning, widespread precip spreads from southwest to northeast. Northern New York (away from the Adirondack peaks) and western Vermont can expect all rain Tuesday into Wednesday.
The thermal profile and precip type are harder to pinpoint from the Green Mountains east. It’s likely the White Mountains pick up several inches (3-6″) of slushy, wet snow. Meanwhile, the Green Mountains and eastern Vermont will likely see a mix of sleet and snow early Tuesday morning, mixing in with rain by the afternoon.
A few pockets of freezing rain, and thus slick roads, are also possible. Temps reach the low 40s west to upper 30s east, where cold air gets blocked in place thanks to the position of atmospheric features.
Wednesday, light mountain snow and valley rain taper off as temps reach the mid to upper 40s. Rainfall totals will run from 0.75″ to 1″. With more widespread, steady rain expected Thursday and Friday, area waterways will need close monitoring for potential Spring flooding.
Have a fantastic day!
