Weather: Fall takes over...again (9/19 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning!

The latest round in the battle between Summer and Fall goes to Fall. Cooler temps are here, starting today, and this time it sticks for more than just a day or two. In the wake of last night's cold front, we are waking up to a cloudy sky with temps in the 50s. Areas of fog have formed in spots that picked up big rain yesterday morning, southern Vermont and southern New Hampshire.

Throughout the day, those clouds will slowly peel back revealing breaks of sunshine as the temp inches into the mid and upper 60s. Light north wind 5-15 mph. Tonight, partly cloudy. Mid 40s to around 50 degrees.

Thursday starts out with decent sunshine, but thin, high clouds roll in by the afternoon ahead of an approaching warm front. That warm front brings a few showers, mainly to northern New York (specifically the St. Lawrence River Valley) and northern Vermont Thursday night. A rumble of thunder is not out of the question. Daytime highs on Thursday reach the upper 60s to near 70 degrees, followed by a bounce back to the mid 70s Friday.

Friday night, a cold front follows with a few downpours and an isolated thunderstorm or two. Ahead of the front, a strong southerly wind kicks up to 20-30 mph. Gusts to 40+ mph are possible, especially through the Champlain Valley. This could lead to isolated power outages. Behind the front, a second, reinforcing shot of cool air keeps top temps in the low 60s for Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, Fall kicks off at 9:54 PM.

Have a fabulous day!
