Another weekend storm follows this week’s fair weather

Hello and good day to you, residents of the snow-covered hills and dales of Windham County! All in all, our week ahead is looking mostly calm, cool and collected, but this weekend will serve as the fly in that forecast's ointment.

We'll have mostly sunny skies Wednesday and Thursday, with more clouds than sun on Friday. Temperatures will be increasing gradually though that three-day period, with dry conditions expected.

Clouds will build on Saturday, and it appears that we could have another winter storm on our hands starting on Saturday afternoon. In fact, this system may stick around and last through Sunday and into Sunday night with substantial accumulating snow possible.

Early next week looks to produce increasingly fair conditions with seasonable temperatures with highs in the 30s.

With our weekly weather picture painted, let's dive into the dailies!

For Wednesday, high pressure will be pushing through the southern Ohio Valley and into the Mid-Atlantic region. Mostly sunny skies will be the result with light winds and highs in the low to mid 30s and lows in the mid teens under mostly clear skies.

For Thursday, our high pressure cell will be pushing offshore, and direct a southerly flow into southern Vermont. This will again foster mostly sunny skies and allow highs to reach the upper 30s to low 40s with lows in the low 20s.

For Friday, we will start to see moisture flow in from the west with time, producing more clouds than sun, and highs in the upper 30s. Dry conditions at the surface will persist, and we can expect lows in the low to mid 20s.

By Saturday, low pressure will be slowly tracking toward New York state. At the same time, the potential exists for a cold Canadian high pressure cell to position itself north of Maine, while a secondary low pressure system develops south of Long Island.

Although we won't have an exceedingly cold antecedent air mass in place, it may be just cold enough, with the aid of that high tapping and draining cold air out of eastern Canada down into Vermont, to produce a substantial, long-duration snowstorm.

With high pressure moving to our northeast, and atmospheric traffic backing up in the northern Atlantic Ocean, this system may last through Sunday night, which could produce a major winter storm in southern Vermont.

By Monday, any remnant snow showers should be exiting the region, and we should see highs both day in the mid to upper 30s as it stands now. Have a great week!
