We’re in the homestretch of August and Monday night, it’ll feel like September is right around the corner. High pressure is taking control leading to a calming wind and clear skies. Overnight lows will fall into the 40s & 50s; coolest spots will be the Adirondacks and the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. It sets the stage for a stunning day Tuesday. After some patchy fog thins out, we’ve got mostly sunny skies to look forward to. Highs will respond nicely, climbing into the upper 70s & low 80s. Humidity will stay low, the comfort level will be high!
Tuesday evening, clouds will thicken up and I can’t rule out a stray shower over northern New York; the rest of us will be dry while the sun is up. Tuesday night, showers and a few thunderstorms will spread across the northeast. Lows, thanks to more clouds, will be warmer, only falling into the low to mid 60s. Spotty showers and a few thunderstorms will continue off and on while a cold front lays over the area. I’m not too concerned about severe storms but a few lightning flashes and downpours are possible. Outside of showers and storms, highs will climb into the upper 70s.
Wednesday night, the front moves away but lighter showers and clouds will linger. Overnight lows will fall into the middle & upper 50s. Thursday is September 1 and it’ll feel like fall is coming soon! Highs during the day will struggle to get into the low 70s while some stubborn clouds float by. Most of us will be dry but a few light showers will meander over the Northeast Kingdom. To add insult to chilly injury, strong northwest winds will be going at least 10-15mph. Friday and Saturday will stay sunny and comfortably cool; highs will be in the 60s to near 70°. Sunday and Labor Day will be more ‘normal’ under a good amount of sun and highs near 80°. All-in-all, it’ll be a pretty perfect holiday weekend, let’s hope it stays that way!
