Hurricane Florence stays south

Humidity returns; sweet weekend ahead

Good day to you, southern Vermonters! We are in the process of having a cold front stall out to our south near the southern New England coastline. This boundary will continue to produce the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday, through Wednesday night, and ending around sunset on Thursday evening. It will be quite humid during this period with dew point temperatures in the 60s to near 70 degrees.

Even though we will enjoy more sunshine Friday through Monday, this humidity will continue until the combination of Hurricane Florence’s rainy remnants and a cold front likely brings rain to the region Tuesday into mid-week before we dry out and cool down. Let’s jump into the details!

For Wednesday through Thursday evening, we will be humid with the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid 70s, with lows in the low 60s. For Thursday, high and low temperatures will be about the same as Wednesday, and any showers and storms should wane as the sun sets.

For Friday through Monday, expect humid conditions, partly to mostly sunny skies, highs in he upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s.

By Tuesday, Florence’s remnants could track north as the high pressure ridge that brought us our nice weekend weakens and allows showers to move into southern Vermont. Wind will not be an issue, but some heavy, tropical downpours will be possible.

Have a great week!
