Well, the 80s are gone and a feeling of fall continues to spill into the northeast. Temperatures Friday hung out in the 50s & low 60s under mostly cloudy skies. It was a solid 15-25° colder than Thursday! We’ll clear out through early Saturday morning and have a huge taste of fall around all weekend. We start with Saturday morning temperatures in the 30s & low 40s. Areas right long Lake Champlain will be warmest near 40°, away from the lake, temperatures will fall farther into the low and mid 30s. Despite increasing sun, highs Saturday afternoon will struggle to get into the low 60s; many in the north country outside the Champlain Valley will stay stuck in the 50s. Burlington, you’ll get to 62° but really, we’re splitting hairs.
Saturday night, we get another hit of lows in the upper 30s and low 40s with another shot of frost possible away from Lake Champlain. Meanwhile, highs on Sunday, even under a sunny sky, will be on the struggle bus into the upper 50s. If/when Burlington doesn’t get to 60°, it’ll be the first time since June 9 and only the second time since May 16th! Hey, if you’re joining us at the Vermont Heart Walk at Oakledge Park in Burlington, bring a coat! The walk starts at 8:15, it’ll be bright but chilly in the 40s. We’ll warm slowly under sunny skies and eventually be in the low 50s by the end of the walk. We’ll start next week with lots of sun and highs in the low to mid 60s on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday, another cold brings another couple rounds of rain. Temperatures will be back close to normal in the 60s with overnight lows in the 50s.
Have a great weekend!
