Hello and good day to you, residents of the peaceful and picturesque windy hamlets of southeastern Vermont! We have an active pattern in place with about two to three storms per week moving through the region, so allow me to paint the broad weather strokes for you.
Colder air will be working into the region Wednesday with some scattered snow showers possible by late afternoon and at night due to the lake effect. High pressure tracking east through southern Vermont brings a cold, dry and sunny Thursday.
As the high departs, a coastal storm will track north up the eastern seaboard. This will produce increasing clouds and snow by Friday evening with snow changing to rain overnight.
A rain-soaked but milder Saturday will lead to scattered showers of mixed rain and snow Sunday before colder air works into southern Vermont for early next week. Thereafter, a winter storm is possible by next Tuesday into Wednesday.
Let's jump into the daily details!
For Wednesday, a wave of low pressure will be tracking east of New England with any morning snow showers giving way to a partly sunny day. Highs will reach the mid 20s to low 30s with a few scattered snow showers in the afternoon and evening. Lows will dip into the teens.
For Thursday, we should see a mostly sunny day with highs in the upper teens to mid 20s - quite cold indeed! At least winds will be light out of the northwest. Lows again will drop into the teens.
For Friday, we will start off with partly sunny skies, and temps will rebound a bit with highs in the low to mid 30s. Clouds thicken in the afternoon, and some snow showers will be possible in the evening.
Snow will become steadier at night with some light accumulations before we start mixing with rain as milder air works into the region. Lows will bottom out in the low 30s but rise slightly overnight.
Our coastal low runs right through southern Vermont on Saturday with any snow changing to plain rain, with highs in the lows 40s - a raw day indeed! The snow pack will melt a bit. Lows will drop into the mid 30s with rain ending.
For Sunday, some additional scattered showers of rain and snow are expected with highs in the 35-to-40 degree range, with lows in the 20s.
Monday looks fair but cold with highs in the 20s and lows in the teens, which may set us up for a potential snowstorm Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. Have a great week!
