Tuesday is not a complete washout. There will be a substantial line of showers that cruises by, but we bookend that rainfall with morning and late afternoon sunshine. Details to follow!
Tuesday morning’s sunrise was one for the history books! If you missed it, be sure to check out a few snapshots on my Facebook page. Throughout the morning, clouds increase as a prefrontal line of showers approaches from the west. Rain will move west to east from mid-morning to midday over northern New York, late morning to early afternoon over Vermont, and ultimately midday to mid-afternoon over New Hampshire.
Rain may be heavy at times and a few strikes of lightning may light us up. Aside from an embedded rumble of thunder or two, it’s mainly just rain. And totals will be lower than last Thursday’s big soaking. Around 0.25-0.5″ rain falls through northern New York and northern Vermont; with 0.5-0.75″ in central and southern Vermont and New Hampshire. A few spots could see close to 1.0″.
The temp maxes out in the mid 70s today with a south breeze of 10-15 mph. This afternoon and right into the evening, the clouds clear west to east, with a partly sunny sky closing out Tuesday. Partly cloudy tonight, too, with a low near 60 degrees.
Wednesday and Thursday are both mostly sunny and toasty warm, reaching well into the 80s. Also, for both days, expect a handful of afternoon thunderstorms to bubble up and be ready to seek shelter if you have outdoor plans.
Have a fantastic day! Stay dry!
