Only one Flood Warning remains as off early Monday morning. It’s for the Missisquoi River through Franklin county (VT). Significant flooding concerns remains, especially in Swanton, with additional upstream rises due to an ice jam. The Flood Warning is scheduled to expire at 7 PM Monday. Impacted areas include, but are not limited to, South River Street, River Lane, Beebe Road, Route 78/North River Street and Monument Road in Swanton.
After a wild weekend of weather, we’re kicking the new week off on a very quiet, but cold note, as high pressure crests over head and then scoots off to the east. Morning temps Monday are between 0° and -25°, but reach the mid and upper teens this afternoon. That’s under a mostly sunny sky with a light north wind. Tonight, increasing clouds. The temp falls to between 0-10°. Through the rest of the work week, daily the temp reaches into the 20s, even low 30s by Friday and nearing 40° this weekend.
Tuesday and Wednesday, a weak, moisture-starved Clipper system arrives off the Great Lakes bringing light snow to the region. For most, it’s a whopping dusting to 1-2″ of snow that falls over the course of two days. Roads could get a little slippery, but it’s certainly no major headache. Snowfall rates may pick up Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, however, in far southern Vermont. A Winter Storm Watch is in place for western Windham and Bennington counties (VT) into Massachusets. 1″ per hour snowfall rates are possible for the Wednesday morning commute.
Have an awesome day!
