Good morning! TGIF!
On Friday, it’s cool and cloudy as temperatures hover in the upper 50s to low and mid 60s nearly all day long. There will be scattered rain throughout the morning and early afternoon, in all totaling less than or near one-half inch. Highest rainfall totals will be found in northern New York and northern Vermont. By mid to late afternoon, showers will begin diminishing from north to south with partial clearing possible before sunset. That means there may be just a few moments or an hour or two of sunshine to cap off the work week.
Tonight, skies continue to clear as temperatures tumble into the upper 30s across the higher terrain and mid 40s in broader valleys. Breezy north winds (10-20 mph plus an occasional stronger gust) from throughout Friday, will subside overnight.
On Saturday, it’s mostly sunny aside from some lingering, stubborn clouds east of the Green Mountains. But don’t expect that sunshine to really warm us up all that much! High temperatures reach the upper 50s to low 60s, both days this weekend! At night, temps will bottom out near 40 degrees in Champlain Valley, and well into the 30s (possibly even upper 20s) away from the lake. Areas of frost are likely, so be sure to take a few moments at night and cover those sensitive plants you want to save for a few more weeks.
For the Heart Walk on Sunday morning, bundle up! No short sleeves like last year! There will be plenty of sunshine, but expect an AM temp in the 40s.
Early next week, quiet but cool weather continues through around Wednesday. We return to more seasonable weather with highs just shy of 70 degrees and lows in the upper 40s.
Have a wonderful weekend!
