Weather: A split forecast for the weekend (8/9/19 PM)


Friday shaped up to be a beautiful day! A few folks saw a couple of very isolated early morning rain showers, especially near Ferrisburgh and moving south and east toward Interstate 89 and Randolph. Those fizzled out before 8 am, leaving the area with partly to mostly sunny skies.

After 4 pm brought a second wave of energy with shower and heavier downpours moving across the North Country and the Champlain Valley, north of Rutland. Those featured some heavy rains and gusty winds, but not a lot of lightning.

Heading right into the weekend, it’s a bit of a split forecast. Saturday will start off with a few stray sprinkles and a mix of sun and clouds. As the afternoon approaches, the chances for scattered rain showers increases, but that’s all they’ll be… Rain showers!

The other story for Saturday is the chilly high temperatures! Most will get close to the 70° mark but many will fall a degree or two short. Combine that with dewpoints in the 40’s and 50’s it’s going to feel more like fall, than early August!

Sunday is the better of the two days with mostly sunny skies and temperatures back to feeling more summer-like in the upper 70’s.

Enjoy it!
