I’ve been working some pretty crazy hours the past few weeks, so I decided to treat myself to a little gondola ride up at Stowe this morning. The weather was so pleasant, I was a little worried about being cold at the top of the mountain, but it turned out to be comfortable without a jacket, especially in the sunshine! And the views were SO worth it!
Overall, Wednesday shaped up nicely! Mostly sunny with a few fair-weather clouds, otherwise temperatures snuck up to or near 80°
Another lovely day on tap for Thursday, except for a few extra afternoon clouds as our first wave of moisture starts to move into the region. The Connecticut River Valley, along with the southernmost counties of Vermont may see a few early showers ahead of the main wave of energy, Thursday afternoon. Most will remain dry!
After Thursday, the chances for rain become more numerous. Overnight through late morning Friday, expect a few passing showers with an embedded heavier downpour or two. Rainfall totals range between 0.1″ and 0.2″ with locally higher amounts. A rumble of thunder or two is also possible.
Just as our chance for showers wraps up Friday morning, another round of afternoon showers and storms bubble up during the afternoon and evening. We could see a few scattered showers hanging around into early Saturday morning, with another chance for showers and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon.
Sunday looks to be the wettest of the days with rain showers arriving early in the morning, while another batch gets underway during the afternoon.
While the weekend isn’t shaping up to be a complete washout, you’ll definitely be dodging showers! Have the rain jacket handy!
