Weather: Showers to the south, a bit of afternoon sunshine to the north

Weather

It might have been a Monday, but the beautiful weather sure helped to start the week off right! Plenty of sunshine this morning, and temperatures in the upper 70’s to low 80’s. I thought it would be a great day for a hike up Mount Philo! The view from the top was absolutely stunning! Check it out!

I did notice when we got to the top the high cirrus clouds were starting to filling ahead of a weak cold front that is sagging southward this evening. 

Just after 7 pm and showers and thunderstorm are already bubbling up right along the international border. Some of these storms could feature gusty winds and heavy rain, aside from the frequent lightning. Our threat for severe weather is not overly robust, but these storms could pack a little bit of a punch as they ride along the international border.

Latest radar

The threat for showers fizzles out to the north but then shifts south as we reach the morning hours of Tuesday as an area of low-pressure sneak by in Southern New England.

We’ll start of the day Tuesday mostly cloudy with a few scattered showers north, while heavier showers with a few embedded rumbles of thunder pass through our southern counties of Vermont and New Hampshire. Rainfall totals range between 0.10″ to 0.50″ with lesser total north of Montpelier. By afternoon the area of low pressure will begin to pull away and places north could break into a bit of sunshine!

Higher rainfall totals south

High pressure moves in for Wednesday bringing a lovely stretch of weather through the weekend, with a few small chances for afternoon showers.
