Weather: Cooler with a side of rain (5/9/2018)

Wednesday was perfect, to this point it was easily the best warm weather day of 2018 and it's going to be tough to beat. We had wall to wall sunshine and highs in the upper 70s & low 80s. Wednesday night, skies stay mostly clear and lows stay mild; we'll wake up in the 50s west of the Greens, 40s east of the Greens.

Thursday starts dry but clouds increase and it gets windy by the afternoon; expect southwest gusts around 20-30mph. Showers and thunderstorms will also approach by late morning. Luckily we're not getting severe storms but a few thunderstorm gusts of 40mph are possible during the heart of the afternoon. Rain will end quickly Thursday night and set the stage for a pleasant but cool Friday. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny and highs stay stuck in the 50s.

Over the weekend, a front will be laying over the northeast. It'll be the focus for rounds of scattered rain Saturday, especially in central & southern Vermont & New Hampshire. The more north you are, the drier you'll be; highs will be in the upper 50s to near 60°. Mother's Day is trending drier for everyone. Saturday's rain continues to move south and we're thinking that's where it will stay. Expect more sun north, more stubborn clouds south but the day will be dry with highs in the mid 60s. Great news Mom!

Early next week, we stick with a drying and warming trend. Expect more sun and highs in the 70s Monday & Tuesday

I hope you're having a great week!
