We started frosty Tuesday morning! Nearly all of us, Burlington included, woke up in the 20s & low 30s. Tonight a weak blip in the atmosphere will give us more clouds and a few more showers through early Wednesday. The best shot at rain will be over the north country, the more south you go, outside of a light sprinkle, you’re dry Tuesday night. Overnight lows will stay much warmer, only falling into the middle & upper 40s.
Wednesday will be a pleasant day. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies with highs nice and comfortable, many will get near 60°. Wednesday night, clouds thicken and widespread rain moves in; it stays plain rain overnight, lows will only fall into the 40s. Thursday will be another cloudy & rainy day; rain totals by the end of the day should be around .50″-1.00″ with some getting a little more. This stays all rain too, even in the mountains, highs from top to bottom will get into the upper 40s & low 50s. Thursday night, colder air will wrap in and a few snow showers will be possible, mainly in the Northeast Kingdom and the mountains. Accumulation, if any, will be light. Lows will fall into the 30s to near 40°.
Friday, after the morning rain/snow showers depart, the day will be quiet but colder. Highs will get into the middle 40s under partly sunny skies. Another set of weak disturbances will race across the northeast Saturday and Sunday. They’ll toss some rain/snow showers our way, highs will be in the middle 40s with overnight lows in the low to mid 30s. Oh yea, before I forget, we’re turning the clocks back Saturday night. I’d feel partially responsible if I didn’t remind you 🙂
The start of next week looks mainly dry but still a lttle cool with highs around 50° and lows in the low to mid 30s. Election day is Tuesday, the weather shouldn’t get in the way.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
