The heat has finally broken and cooler weather unfolds. However, some get in on some big shower activity Monday, while others only see an increase in cloud cover. Let’s break it down.
Monday – Clouds increase throughout the morning with rain moving in from the Ohio River Valley as an area of low pressure rides along a stationary boundary parked over southern New England. Rain will be extremely light and spotty over northern New York and far northern Vermont, with areas near the Canadian border picking up just a trace to a few hundredths of an inch total rainfall. Rain totals will quickly ramp up the farther south you go, with 1.00-1.25″ falling in Rutland, Windsor, Windham and Bennington counties. Some afternoon downpours are possible. The top temp for all is in the 70s with light and variable wind.
Tonight is mostly to partly cloudy with only an isolated shower or two leftover. Nighttime lows bottom out in the 50s. Tuesday, the same areas that picked up rain Monday will catch a couple lingering showers or even just a sprinkle or two. Clouds are stubborn and slow to clear, though breaks of blue are possible across northern New York and northwestern Vermont. Mid to upper 70s.
Wednesday, finally a full sunshine day! Mostly sunny with only a very slim chance at an isolated afternoon shower or weak thunderstorm. Low to mid 70s. Late week, heat and humidity begin to slowly rise. Thursday, low 80s then mid 80s by Friday into the weekend.
Have a fantastic Monday!
