Another round of snow showers continues as Thursday night goes on and then ends through the first part of Friday. It won’t be snowing everywhere or all the time. By Friday afternoon we’re expecting valleys to get a dusting to an inch or 2″, mountains get 2-6″. Some of the highest peaks may end up with more. I don’t see this causing big travel issues for us other than slippery spots and periodic low visibility. I’d plan on going to school and work on time Friday morning. Temps Thursday night drop into the low to mid 20s but Friday afternoon, behind that batch of snow, temps drop back into the teens & 20s. That means, despite some afternoon sun, the warmest part of Friday will be in the morning and the wind will make it feel even colder. Skies stay partly cloudy overnight into the start of the weekend. Lows for most Saturday morning will be in the single digits. Parts of the Daks & NEK will be around or below 0°! The Champlain Valley will be closer to 10°.
The weekend is looking fairly quiet with just a light round of snow Saturday night through Sunday morning. Saturday during the day will be chilly but partly to mostly sunny; highs will be in the low 20s. Don’t expect much accumulation from overnight snow. Sunday afternoon trends partly to mostly sunny with highs in the middle & upper 20s. Remember, average is about 35°, we’ll be nowhere close! Much of next week will be quiet and cool too. Expect a daily mix of sun and clouds with perhaps a few snow showers mixed; most stay dry. Highs through Wednesday will be in the middle & upper 20s with lows in the teens.
The weekend is in vew!
