After a chilly start to Tuesday, look for seasonable high temperatures in the low 50s and a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon. Breezy south wind 10-20 mph. Clouds will increase this afternoon and evening ahead of an approaching mid level shortwave that passes largely to our north.
Overnight, while the best atmospheric forcing remains in Canada, a handful of light rain showers or sprinkles will spread from west to east. We’re talking very minimal rain, if you even see any at all! You can probably count the number of drops on your windshield tomorrow morning. Low temps, mild, low to mid 40s.
Wednesday is another dry day; though this time, mostly cloudy. It’s also very warm midweek with a high near 60 degrees. Late Wednesday afternoon and evening, there may be a few sprinkles, but most stay dry until around midnight or even daybreak Thursday.
There is still some uncertainty as to where the highest rainfall totals will be Thursday. As of this morning’s runs, models favor northern New York into northern and central Vermont for around 1″ of rain, with lesser amounts across southern Vermont and southern New Hampshire; though that could change. High temp Thursday, mid 50s.
Thursday night into Friday morning, some cooler northwest flow sparks mountain snow showers or flurries…with that northwest flow keeping us cool through the weekend. Daytime temps return to the mid and upper 40s. This weekend, partly to mostly cloudy with an occasional lake effect or mountain driven snow/rain shower.
Have a great day!
