Happy hump day! Leftover storms are ending and we’re drying out Wednesday night. Overnight temperatures will fall into the upper 50s and low 60s under mostly clear skies. However, pockets of thick fog will form, especially in the spots that got heavier rain Wednesday afternoon. Thursday is going to be another mostly sunny and warm day with just a small chance at afternoon storms. The best opportunity at seeing anything stormy will be along the International Border and in the St. Lawrence Valley. Almost everyone else will remain dry with highs in the low to mid 80s. Any storms that are able to get themselves going will quickly fade after sunset. Thursday night will be quiet with patchy fog and lows in the low and mid 60s. Friday is shaping to be a pretty nice day with a good amount of sun. Highs will be right back into the low to mid 80s. Mugginess for the rest of the week will be noticeable, but not atrocious.
Our sunny and ‘hot’ streak ends over the weekend. Late Friday night, a weak batch of showers will spin through. Don’t cancel Friday night plans, just count on a few raindrops under mostly cloudy skies; lows will be in the low 60s. Saturday starts dry but widespread rain is here by Saturday afternoon. Showers with isolated thunder will stick around through Sunday evening. There will be periodic dry time to get stuff done but don’t count on a full dry day. While all that is going on, weekend highs ‘only’ reach the middle 70s. It won’t be cold, but normal for late June is nearly 80°.
Monday and Tuesday are both trending quiet apart from an isolated shower or three. Skies will be partly sunny with high temperatures staying below normal, climbing to around 75°. Complaints? We didn’t think so 🙂
Wednesday is July 3rd and Burlington is planning a big fireworks show at the waterfront! It’s one of the biggest events of the year and right now we’re looking more dry than wet but we’re monitoring things closely! One thing is for certain, it won’t be nearly as hot as last year when it was in the 90s!
The weekend is in view!
