Good morning, hopefully you got a good night of sleep with the strong winds! Good news is the wind is easing up, but still relatively breezy. Some of the highest wind speeds were found at our highest peaks, Mt. Mansfield hit 86 mph, and Whiteface hit just shy of 80 mph. Across the Champlain Valley closer to home we say sustained winds from 20-30 mph, and gusts 50-60 mph. But the strong wind has allowed for us to start Tuesday off on a very mild note, mid and upper 40s. Rutalnd at one point was sitting at 50°. The weather will be active as we continue through the rest of the week, so lets break that down for you.
Today: Partly to mostly cloudy with a sprinkle or mountain flurry. After a mild start, temperatures fall to the mid and upper 30s Tuesday afternoon. Wind: Southwest becoming West 5-15mph.
Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with isolated flurries. Overnight lows fall to the mid and low 20s. Wind: West becoming Northwest 5-15mph.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy with a few isolated snow thanks to a weak disturbance. Most of the snow accumulation will be confined to the slopes! Daytime highs hit the low 30s.
Thursday/Friday: We are continuing to watch a low move up the east coast. Timing for a start looks like for the second half of Thursday. Models are still coming together on the type of precipitation we might see, but is looking a bit more like snow. It’s too early to talk about how much snow, but we will see accumulating snow across the region. Hopefully more consistency of our models will allow us to talk totals soon!
Have a great day!
