Good Monday evening, we made it past the heat now we just need to make it past some wet weather. Monday’s highs just made it into the 70s in some spots like the Champlain Valley while the rest of us stayed in the mid and upper 60s with rain overhead. The good news is the week looks pretty good with only a few hiccups along the way. Monday night lows fall into the mid and upper 50s while mugginess stays comfy. Showers will stick around but will become more scattered in nature. Not everyone sees it but we’ll also have to be careful of pockets of fog, visibility will be low in spots, especially in places that got heavier rain during the day Monday.
Tuesday we get a bit warmer but at times, it stays wet. We’ll start with the warmer part. Highs during the afternoon will climb into the mid and upper 70s in northwest Vermont & northern New York. However, the more east and south you go, some won’t crack 70° again. The cooler spots are thanks to clouds lingering a bit longer. The steady rain is gone by Tuesday afternoon but a few stubborn, spotty showers will be found. That said, I’d keep any plans. Tuesday evening we all begin to see at least some partial clearing and here’s more good news, humidity stays low. Tuesday night we keep clearing but while lows fall into the mid 50s, pockets of fog will form. Come Wednesday we’re A-OK! Temperatures will rise into the mid 70s and the sun will shine bright! Thursday also looks good! Temperatures climb close to 80° with just a few more clouds overhead. A spot shower cannot be ruled out especially along the International border and in the mountains but most stay dry.
Thinking ahead to Friday and the weekend. Temperatures keep getting warmer any mugginess is more noticeable but definitely tolerable. Friday and Saturday will both be sunny and warm with highs in the mid 80s. Sunday and Monday, the chance at showers and thunderstorms starts to go up, especially in northwest New York and along the International Border. It’s still too early for specifics, but that’s our next shot at more than just an isolated shower.
Enjoy your week!
