With wet weather ramping up on again through the second half of the week, our only shot at a dry day with some sunshine passes quickly Tuesday. High pressure builds in (and exits) at the surface and aloft. That drier air may allow for some breaks of sunshine through the day, though stubborn clouds linger over higher terrain. Low to mid 40s. Light northwest wind 5-10 mph. Tonight, mostly cloudy. Low to mid 30s.
Wednesday, Halloween, a cold front approaches from the northwest, with rain reaching the St. Lawrence River Valley by mid-morning and spreading throughout eastern New York, and eventually by the afternoon and evening Vermont and New Hampshire.
Rain will mostly be light, but it’s accompanied by a breezy south wind of 10-15 mph with gusts to 25 mph. Up to 0.5″ falls in New York, with less than 0.25″ in mainly northern and central counties of VT and NH. The driest trick-or-treaters will be in southern Vermont and New Hampshire. High temp, near 50 degrees.
That front stalls out over New England for Thursday, keeping us pretty soggy with scattered showers. An area of low pressure rides along that boundary bringing even more rain, heavy at times by Friday. A total of 1-3″ rainfall is upon us by Saturday morning, which won’t lead to widespread flooding but will fill up those rivers.
Have a great day!
