Weather Blog: Rain returns Wednesday

SkyTracker Blog

Good afternoon!

Clouds have been steadily increasing throughout Tuesday as mid and low-level moisture gradually returns to the region. The temp still soared into the upper 70s with most enjoying ample sunshine and a south breeze of around 15 mph. The occasional 20-25 mph gust has been recorded in the Champlain Valley.

Tonight is mostly cloudy and milder with the temp bottoming out around 60 degrees. It will be increasingly muggier overnight as dewpoint temperatures return to the upper 50s and even 60s throughout Wednesday. Early bird commuters, however, will likely welcome the uptick in cloud cover as it keeps fog development at bay.

A line of showers will crawl through from west to east (beginning in the morning over far western sections of northern New York) and ending well after sunset in New Hampshire. Timing for Vermont? Pretty much all afternoon.

That line will likely become more robust and producer heavier rain throughout the day as it progresses eastward, though storms are not anticipated. Rainfall totals of 0.5-1.0″ will be common, with a few locally higher totals.

The temp reaches the upper 70s with that same breezy south wind kicking right back up again, at 10-20 mph. Wednesday night into Thursday, showers wrap up. Near 60 in the morning, then nearing 80 degrees Thursday afternoon with breaks of sunshine.

Have a great day and stay dry!
