Weather: Fairly quiet, summer-like weekend (9/14 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning! Happy Fri-YAY!

As we hit the midpoint in September this weekend, warmer weather takes over again. Thursday brought a mix of sun and clouds with a top temp around 80 degrees, and we get a repeat performance on Friday...even down to the morning fog. Very dense fog early will complicate the wait at the bus stop or slow down that commute into work. Plan for a few extra moments and remember to slow down, making sure your headlights (and low beams if you've got 'em) are on.

Once that fog lifts and clears by mid to late morning, a mostly sunny day is in front of you as the temp crawls from the mid 50s to mid 60s, into the low 80s this afternoon. Light south wind 5-10 mph. Tonight, mostly clear. Near 60 degrees.

Saturday, an uptick in low-level moisture may spell out a cloudy start to the day. Those clouds could squeeze out an isolated shower or sprinkle over area mountains, especially the Adirondacks and northern Greens, but most should stay dry and clouds will peel back to reveal some sun Saturday afternoon. It'll be a great day to joint Local 22 & Local 44 at the Vermont Heart Walk. Low 80s. Sunday and Monday, low 80s.

Florence continues to weaken as it stalls out near Wilmington, North Carolina. Eventually, late in the weekend on Sunday, its remnants get picked up by a cold front moving through the Great Lakes and Ohio River Valley. How far north those remnants get spit out is TBD. It may mean a beneficial slug of rain (similarly to earlier this week with Gordon's remnants) for our region Tuesday/Wednesday, but it may also mean the mid-Atlantic and southern New England steal that from us. We'll be watching!

Have a wonderful weekend!
