Weather: More heat, more humidity, more storms (8/28/2018)

Planner for Wednesday August 29 2018

Burlington and Plattsburgh did it again, we made it to at least 90° Tuesday afternoon. 92° in Burlington was good enough for the 14th day at/above 90° this year. Sure, 14 days is way above normal, but it’s also way away from the record number of 90° days.

Overnight, we’ll have spotty showers and perhaps a couple thunderstorms but generally quiet, muggy weather continues Tuesday night. Lows will be in the upper 60s & low 70s. Wednesday, it’ll be hot and humid again. Expect a solid mix of sun and clouds through the afternoon. Highs will get back into the upper 80s & low 90s with a heat index well into the 90s. A heat advisory remains in place for all of western Vermont, eastern Essex co NY, and the Upper Valley. Showers and storms will pop during the afternoon and continue overnight into early Thursday. Some of the storms before midnight may be strong, we’re monitoring that potential closely.

Thursday, showers may linger through mid morning but expect clearing by the evening. It’ll be much cooler and much less humid, highs will be in the mid 70s. Friday and Saturday will be beautiful! Expect more sun than clouds with highs on either side of 80° with lows around 60°. Saturday, I can’t rule out a stray shower but most should be dry. Sunday and Monday, we’ll be dodging showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms to end Labor Day weekend. Sunday has the better chance at thunder. At this point, I don’t see a washout but it’ll be wise to keep an eye on the forecast.

I hope you’re having a great week!
