Break out the sunglasses! High pressure traverses the northeastern United States Thursday bringing a break from scattered showers and thunderstorms. After dense morning fog lifts, the rest of the day is quiet and dry. Mostly sunny skies will go hand-in-hand with comfortable high temps in the upper 70s to low 80s and dew points in the 40s and 50s. Calm wind becomes light and westerly, 5-10 mph. Tonight, it’s mostly clear with a low near 60 degrees.
On Friday, active weather returns. A cold front moves across the region with increasing clouds during the morning, and scattered showers during the afternoon. There may be a few thunderstorms, too, though the ingredients for severe weather are not all that impressive Friday. Localized heavy rainfall is possible, though rain will be moving through a lot quicker than Tuesday.
On Saturday, just a few showers will linger across the higher terrain under partly sunny skies. Some clouds will hang around into Sunday, but generally we’re trending drier and clearer as the weekend progresses. And that means, the July 3rd Fireworks at the Burlington Waterfront and your 4th of July celebrations should go off without a hitch.
Have a great Thursday!
