Friday, we had a steady diet of clouds around but after the morning, rain was hard to come by. Overnight into the weekend, we’ll have a couple sprinkles around but your plans should happen without any weather worries. Saturday morning will start in the upper 40s & low 50s; average lows are around 42°! Saturday, a warm front lifts back north and it will take much of the day to move north of the border. You care about that because it’ll increase clouds again and bring isolated showers back. I don’t expect a washout, there will be lots of dry time and highs will reach the upper 60s & low 70s.
At this point it looks like we’ll have a better shot at widespread rain Sunday morning while a cold front swings through. All told, we’re looking at up to a half inch worth of rain from both days. The front will be a quick mover and by Sunday afternoon we’ll trend drier with highs in the middle to upper 70s, some north & west get close to 80°. The more east and south you are, clouds will hang tough longer leading to highs ‘only’ in the upper 60s & low 70s. Sunday is the day we could break some record highs in northwest Vermont & northern New York. The day’s record high in Burlington is 77°, our forecast high is 80°.
We need more rain and early next week we’ll likely get some in buckets. Tropical moisture will get pulled into the northeast and stick with us Monday and Tuesday. The main axis of moderate to heavy rain will more than likely fall in central & southern Vermont & New Hampshire. Spotty lighter showers will be possible in northern Vermont & New York.
Have a great weekend!
