Happy Friday. It felt like summer out there today with temperatures reaching the low and mid 80s and pretty sticky as well. Any rain left this evening will begin to dwindle away as the night goes on. Meanwhile, patchy fog will form as temperatures fall into the low and mid 60s. Although the humidity will be dropping off, I suspect many will still have their air conditioners running tonight. The weekend looks good but I would not grade it an A+. Saturday’s temperatures climb into the mid and upper 80s, some of the warmer spots will approach 90°; skies will remain mostly sunny. Saturday night into Sunday spotty showers will be around, especially the farther north you go. Overnight lows will fall into the mid 60s. Sunday is a tad cooler with highs in the upper 70s. A leftover shower or 2 is possible, mainly in the morning but rain could linger a little longer in places like the Northeast Kingdom but, you are not getting washed out.
Next week the summer like pattern continues once again. Monday and Tuesday we remain mostly sunny and high temperatures soar into the mid and upper 80s. Lows remain mild as well only falling into the mid and upper 60s, even close to 70°. Each night will muggier than the last. Wednesday we introduce the chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm. Highs remain in the upper 80s, remember average for this time of year is 81°. Thursday and Friday seem to be the wettest of the next 7 with widespread rain and storms both days. All the while, it remains hot and humid with highs in the mid and upper 80s.
Enjoy your weekend!
