Weather: Weather perfection with a side of rain (5/20/2018)

Planner for Tuesday August 21 2018

Monday’s weather was pretty close to perfect. We had lots of sun with nothing more than scattered cotton balls floating in the sky; highs jumped into the 70s & low 80s. Monday night, there may be a few pockets of fog but most stay clear. Humidity will stay low, your windows stay open and your AC stays off, lows will be in the 50s to near 60°.

Tuesday, we start mostly sunny and dry. As the day goes on, clouds get thicker and the wind picks up in the afternoon; we could get a few gusts from the south over 20mph. Meanwhile, highs get back into the low 80s and the rain waits until late in the evening. I wouldn’t be shocked if a few light showers pop over the Adirondacks after 3pm but most wait until after 8pm for umbrellas to go up. Scattered rain will continue overnight and last through Wednesday afternoon. By the time all is said and done, we’re looking at .50-1″ worth of rain. There will be a few isolated higher amounts too but that’s still not a ton and it won’t be drought busting. There may be a few embedded rumbles of thunder but we’re not expecting strong storms. Highs Wednesday get into the upper 70s under mostly cloudy skies. Wednesday night, skies clear, temps drop and humidity goes way down; lows will be in the mid 50s.

Thursday is when we get back into weather perfection. In fact, it lasts through the start of the weekend. Thursday, we’re mostly sunny and 75°. Friday and Saturday, sunshine continues with highs around 80° and low humidity. The Champlain Valley fair will not start with weather delays! Sunday & Monday, we’ll have a small chance at hit or miss showers & thunderstorms. At this point, don’t cancel plans over it but be prepared to wait out a thunderstorm or two.

Have a great week!
