I hope everyone had a great weekend! There was plenty of heat and humidity to go around as we started another week. Highs Monday afternoon cruised back into the 80s & low 90s. In fact, Burlington got to 90° for the 7th time in 2019 and we’ve another shot at it on Tuesday!
Monday night, any lingering showers will end and much of the overnight will be dry. As temperatures fall into the 60s & low 70s, patchy fog will form and some of it will be thick. Tuesday will start dry and sunny but as highs jump into the 80s & 90s again, spotty afternoon storms will develop. Similar to Sunday, some of the storms may pack an additional punch of wind, rain, hail, and lightning. The best chance at an isolated severe storm will be in northwest Vermont & northern New York. It won’t be storming all the time nor will it be storming everywhere, between the rain it’ll be steamy with a heat index in the low 90s.
Tuesday night, storms weaken but scattered rain will continue. There won’t be any relief from mugginess yet, lows will only fall into the middle & upper 60s. Showers will keep going while a cold front meanders across the northeast on Wednesday. Expect mostly cloudy skies with highs hovering on either side of 80°.
Wednesday night, rain, heat, and humidity all move away but you’ll have to be careful of patchy fog again. Lows will be much more comfy in the low 60s. That’ll set the stage for a beautiful start to August! Expect mostly sunny skies through early next week. Expect highs in the upper 70s & low 80s from Thursday to Monday with low humidity.
