Weather: Rain Now, Warm & Dry Later (11/15/2016)

Planner for Wednesday November 16 2016

Much of the day Tuesday was dry and mild with highs getting well into the 40s, 50s & low 60s. The more south you went, clouds got thicker and you ran into rain. Tuesday night, rain will continue its northern march across Vermont, New York & New Hampshire. Rain may be briefly heavy but flooding is not a concern.

Meanwhile, it’ll be plenty cloudy with lows falling to near 40°. Isolated showers will stick around Wednesday, especially in the mountains. Wednesday afternoon we’ll start to dry things out in valleys with highs near 50°. A really nice stretch of weather is setting up Thursday to Saturday. High pressure will be in place providing mostly sunny skies and highs well into the 50s Thursday & Friday. Saturday, we’ve got a solid shot at getting into the low 60s. Meanwhile, overnight lows will be pleasantly chilly falling to near 40° each night.

Sunday morning is when things start to get interesting. A cold front will be marching eastbound providing scattered plain rain during the day. Highs will be in the 40s. Overnight into Monday, cold air will quickly wrap in and change rain to snow for most of our mountains. Rain and snow showers will continue on Monday. There are a few key ingredients at play here and their exact location will determine how much snow we get. Bottom line is that we could be looking at several inches of new mountain snow and perhaps some lighter accumulation in valleys. In case you’re keeping score at home, Burlington’s average it’s first inch of snow November 17. Stay tuned!

Have a great week!
