Recreational Forecast

General:

Morning clouds and a few early showers, mainly east, ending. Becoming partly to mostly sunny from west to east through this morning. A spotty afternoon shower possible in the St. Lawrence Valley. Highs in the upper 60s to low 70s, a few mid 60s in northern NH. Winds light east of the Green Mountains. South to southwest winds near 10 mph from the Green Mountains west, diminishing in the afternoon.

Brief:

Although we have some low clouds, and a few lingering showers in NH, skies are beginning to clear through NY state, progressing east this morning, so that today should turn out to be a fine day for most outdoor plans. Winds will be light, skies partly sunny midday and afternoon, and temperatures seasonably mild – in the upper 60s to low 70s, with a few mid 60s in northern NH, where the clouds will linger a little longer. A cold front moving through this morning, then stalling to our east will help with the clearing today, but a series of weak storms tracking up along the front will bring some additional moisture tonight and tomorrow morning, transported in by an easterly wind from high pressure building south from eastern Quebec. This means low clouds, with some patches of drizzle and fog from the Green Mountains east later tonight and tomorrow morning, giving way to increasing sun midday and afternoon. The high will feed slightly cooler air into the region as well.

Winds:

Winds today light east of the Green Mountains, becoming south to southwest near 10 mph from the Green Mountains west, decreasing in the afternoon, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet, subsiding in the afternoon. Winds overnight light and variable, becoming east to northeast less than 10 mph through southern areas, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain subsiding to less than 1 foot. On Wednesday, winds light, mainly northeast less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Winds on Thursday light in northern areas, and from the east to northeast near 10 mph in southern sections.

Mountain:

This morning begins with a few clouds near the summits early, then becoming partly sunny from west to east midday and afternoon. West winds becoming south and decreasing, and temperatures milder, but steady. The summits of the Green and White Mountains and the Berkshires Wednesday will start with some low clouds in and out, breaking for some afternoon sun, and partly sunny for the Adirondacks. Temperatures will be seasonable, and light winds mainly from the east. Thursday's outlook calls for mostly cloudy skies, the clouds gradually lowering, with a slight chance of showers south. Light to moderate northeast winds, and little change in temperatures.
