We’re staying quiet Monday night but clouds are getting thicker. That’s really a shame too because the moon will be “super” again. The more north you are, clouds are thinner with holes. The more south you are, clouds are thicker and more widespread. Either way, if you get a picture, we’d love to see it! Share it with us on facebook or twitter. Temperatures should be tolerable but you’ll need a coat; lows will fall into the middle & upper 30s.
Tuesday starts dry and partly sunny. As the day goes on, clouds keep getting thicker and showers spread north. They’ll start by mid morning in southern Vermont & New Hampshire and progress into the north country after lunch. Heaviest and steadiest rain will be along and east of the Green Mountains. Highest totals won’t be much, only about a half inch. Northwest Vermont & northern New York will be closer to a tenth or an inch or so. Meanwhile, we’ll all climb well above freezing keeping everything plain rain, highs will be around 50°.
Tuesday night, showers may linger but will become more isolated. Lows will fall to near 40° under mostly cloudy skies. Isolated showers will stick around Wednesday morning, 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 in the low to mid 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 is when things start to get interesting. A cold front will be marching eastbound providing scattered 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, exact amounts are still hazy at this point but the mountains could be looking at several inches of new snow. Stay tuned!
Have a great week!
