Recreational Forecast

General:

Today: Mostly sunny. Tonight: Clear through midnight. Increasing clouds thereafter. Chance for rain by morning southwest of I-89. Monday: Rain spreading northeast.

Brief:

Large HIGH pressure centered just south of James Bay is ridged southward down the Atlantic seaboard this morning. It will bring a tranquil spring day to the region as it drifts east-northeastward to an axis from northern Quebec to just south of Block Island by this evening. Meanwhile, large and complex LOW pressure with multiple centers stretches from eastern Manitoba to the Red River valley, and southeast to Memphis, Tennessee. An expansive area of rain covers the center of the nation. By tomorrow morning the LOW will have consolidated over the Great Lakes and rain will be on our doorstep. That rain will overspread the entire region by midday, accompanied by a stiff southeast wind. Much of the rest of the week will be spent under its influence with cool, damp conditions. The wettest weather is expected Monday afternoon through Tuesday.

Winds:

Today: North to northwest 5-15 mph, diminishing to light and variable this afternoon. Tonight: Light, variable in deep, sheltered valleys east; otherwise becoming south to southeast 10-15 mph towards morning roughly north and east of I-89, and 10-20 mph with higher gusts towards morning south and west of I-89. Monday: South to southeast increasing to 12-25 mph with gusts 30-40 mph above 1500 over northeast VT, New Hampshire and the Eastern Townships, and to 15-25 mph elsewhere with gusts to 40-50 mph possible above 1500 feet and also along the immediate western slopes of the Green Mountains.
