July is leaving and it’s taking the humidity with it. Complaints? I didn’t think so. The numbers are still being crunched but this July in Burlington will finish as either #1 or #2 hottest since 1948. Wednesday night, rain, heat, and humidity all move east but you’ll have to be careful of patchy fog again. Some of it will be thick. Meanwhile, lows will be much more comfy in the upper 50s & low 60s.
The stage is now set for a beautiful start to August! Expect mostly sunny skies all day Thursday. North winds at 5-10mph will keep dry air around while the strong August sun warms highs into the upper 70s & low 80s. Patchy fog will form again Thursday night while lows drop into the middle & upper 50s. Friday and Saturday we keep it going with lots of sun and highs in the low 80s and overnight lows in the low 60s. That’s perfectly ‘normal’ for early August. Saturday night, our next front approaches from the north. It’ll throw more clouds at us than anything else. However, a few light showers along the border through Sunday morning will be possible.
Clouds move away again by Sunday afternoon, highs will be in the upper 70s & low 80s. After that, our next shot at rain arrives Tuesday evening & Wednesday.
