Weather: Smooth sailing into the weekend (3/7/2019)

Planner for Friday March 8 2019

Our copy/paste weather pattern of cold with spotty snow continued on Thursday. Highs were right back into the teens & low 20s with hit or miss snow. Some of the snow showers were a bit heavier than others but accumulation as a whole was pretty light. Thursday night, skies will be clearing and the wind will be a bit lighter. Lows will be around -5 to 10°, the coldest spots will be in the Adirondacks & NEK. The Champlain Valley will be closer to 8°.

Friday and Saturday, we start to make up some ground in the temperature department. Expect mostly sunny skies both days with highs in the upper 20s & low 30s. Either day will be a perfect 10 by winter standards. Lows Friday night and Saturday night will be in the mid to high teens.

Sunday, our next organized storm gets here and it’ll be a messy one. Expect a mix of sleet and snow to start during the morning. After lunch, temperatures approach 40° and we’ll mix in plain rain with the snow. That will continue off & on through late Sunday evening. Eastern Vermont and New Hampshire will see the transition to plain rain last. Sunday night, cold air spills back in, expect a switch back to mainly snow showers, they’ll continue through Monday evening. Expect roads to be wet or slushy, travel will be slow at times. Don’t expect a big thumping of accumulation. Valleys get a dusting to 2″. The mountains, especially the southern Greens, get 4+”. 

Tuesday, lingering light snow hangs over mainly the northern mountains while everyone else has a quiet day. Expect at least some sunshine with highs in the low 30s. Wednesday looks great under sunny skies; highs will be near 35°. Thursday, light rain and snow make a comeback. 

I hope you’re having a great week!
