Weather: Scorching work week finale (6/28/2019 AM)


Good morning! Happy Friday!

Have you held out on installing that window A/C unit so far this month? Today is a great day to put that thing in! Temps max out in the mid to upper 80s this afternoon and could even close in on 90° in the Champlain Valley and Connecticut River Valley for the first time this year. Hitting that milestone depends on thin, high clouds that increase gradually this afternoon, obscuring that scorching late June sun. Light south wind 5-10 mph.

Tonight, another decaying batch of showers and embedded thunderstorms slides south out of Canada. A few rumbles of thunder and scattered rain takes us to Saturday morning with yet another mild and muggy night as the temp falls into the mid 60s.

This weekend is easily not as nice as the last. But, it’s not a complete washout either. Showers Saturday morning will wrap-up and midday partial sunshine is possible for a few hours. By the afternoon, however, another round of scattered showers blossoms – along with an isolated thunderstorm or two. Mid 70s. Sunday, yet again, clouds remain very stubborn and showers pop up throughout the day. Low 70s.

TGIF! Have a phenomenal weekend!
