Recreational Forecast

General:

Some breaks of morning sun, becoming mostly cloudy. A rising chance of showers and thunderstorms midday and afternoon, scattered in the St. Lawrence Valley, becoming likely in the Adirondacks and spreading east through the afternoon, reaching southern NH late. Some storms may contain strong winds, heavy downpours, and hail. Warm and rather muggy. Highs in the mid 70s to low 80s. South winds 5 to 15 mph.

Brief:

Although showers and strong thunderstorm are the focus of today’s weather, if you have some short-term outdoor plans, you might get some of them in. Only a few showers are anticipated this morning, mainly in the Adirondacks and St. Lawrence Valley. Periods of sun, a light to moderate south wind, and temperatures starting in the 60s to near 70 will give many locations a pretty decent morning. Late this morning, showers and thunderstorms will increase through NY, and through mid-afternoon will be mostly west of the Green Mountains. Late in the day, the storms will progress east, holding off in much of southeast VT and central and southern NH until evening. But the storms have the potential to become strong to severe, with strong winds, heavy rains, and hail, along with frequent lightning. Any outdoor plans should include a safe place to shelter if threatening weather approaches.

The showers and potentially strong thunderstorms this evening will be tapering off. Any morning showers north tomorrow will be tapering off, and clouds will break for some sun. But a few more localized, passing showers are possible, maybe a thunderstorm, with the best chances over the higher terrain north, and mostly dry in southern valleys.

Winds:

Winds today from the south to southwest 5 to 15 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet. Winds this evening from the south near 10 mph, diminishing to light and variable, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain subsiding to 1 foot or less. Winds on Wednesday light, becoming west less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain less than 1 foot. Thursday's outlook calls for light winds, mainly west less than 10 mph.***winds and waves may be higher in the vicinity of thunderstorms***For more details on Lake Champlain, go to: http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=BTV&product=REC&issuedby=BTV

Mountain:

Clouds will build today as showers and thunderstorms increase, mostly this afternoon, clouds obscuring the Presidential Range. Light to moderate southwest winds, and still warm, but more humid. On Wednesday, clouds will be in and out across the northern summits, with a few showers, while it becomes partly sunny south, and just a widely scattered shower. Southwest winds becoming west, and turning a little cooler and less humid. The outlook for Thursday calls for mostly sunny conditions, a light west wind, and seasonable temperatures.
