Many got to at least 90° 2 days in a row, Sunday & Monday. Plattsburgh and Burlington are both included, we need another day to make it an official heatwave but it’s not going to happen. A strong cold front will cross the area Monday night bringing a line of strong to severe storms with it along with an end to the big heat.
Storms will approach the St. Lawrence Valley around 8pm. They will continue to march eastbound, reaching the Champlain Valley around 10pm-11pm. From there, they will cross the rest of Vermont, reaching the Connecticut River Valley between 12am-2am. Storms will be strongest in northern New York with the threats being damaging wind, heavy rain, frequent lightning and small hail. They’re expected to weaken as they move east into Vermont but will still be quite strong. Once the main line of storms is east of you, you’ll start to clear nicely. We’ll be dry and comfortable Tuesday morning with lows in the low 60s.
Tuesday will be a very nice day under lots of sun, a lighter west wind and not nearly as much heat; highs will be in the 70s to near 80°. Late Tuesday, a weak area of disturbed weather will pass us by. It’ll bring more clouds and spotty showers that linger off and on through Wednesday. Wednesday’s highs will stuck in the low 70s. Thursday, we’re watching an area of low pressure that will likely miss us to the south. However, there’s still a chance that it jogs back north. If it does, we’ll have to toss a few showers in the forecast, especially for those in southern & central Vermont/New Hampshire. If the clouds and rain miss us to the south, it’ll be mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 70s.
Friday through Sunday we’re set to have another stretch of near perfect weather. Expect lots of sun with highs climbing into the 70s & low to mid 80s. Overnight lows will be warmer but should stay comfortable in the 50s & low 60s. Another cold front arrives on Monday, bringing another chance at showers.
