Fair through Friday, potential storm on Saturday

Hello and good day to you, fine citizens of southeastern Vermont! We've got a calm and fair end to our work week in Windham County, which will be pleasant indeed. However, the weekend holds the potential for inclement conditions.

As of this writing, a coastal storm looks to either graze us or miss completely to the southeast with a light, northern stream system moving through with some light snow Saturday evening. However, uncertainty remains and we could see a bigger snowstorm for Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.

Regardless of what transpires, a blustery and cooler Sunday seems fairly likely, with a milder trend for early next week with showers possible by Tuesday. With our weekly weather sketch roughed in, let's fill out some more daily details below.

For Wednesday, clouds may persist during part of the morning, especially over the high terrain in western parts of the county. Mostly sunny skies are expected to develop as the day wears on, and highs should reach the upper 20s to low 30s with light northwest flow. Lows will plummet into the single digits overnight under dry, calm and clear skies.

For Thursday, high pressure will be diving southeast out of Ontario and into Quebec in southern Canada. This wil produce a light northerly flow, along with sunny skies and highs in the low 30s. Lows should tank down into the teens under partly cloudy skies.

For Friday, high pressure will drift east and off of the eastern seaboard, producing a more southwesterly flow. This will produce mostly sunny skies with slightly milder highs into the low to mid 30s, and lows bottoming out near 20 degrees.

By Saturday, we are watching how a fairly moisture-starved northern stream system interacts with developing low pressure off the Virginia coastline.

If they phase, the coastal low would be turned more northerly and bring substantial southern Vermont snows. If they remain apart, the coastal low will pass south and east of us, and the northern stream system will whiff through with a coating to 2 inches of snow. Highs will reach the low to mid 30s with lows in the low to mid 20s.

For Sunday, expect mostly cloudy skies with a few snow showers possible at times, and blustery northwest winds. Highs will reach the low to mid 30s with lows in the 20s.

Monday looks sunnier with highs in the 30s, and Tuesday could bring some rain showers with temps in the mid to upper 30s during the day as low pressure passes to our northwest. Have a great week!
