Recreational Forecast

General:

A few localized showers or an isolated thunderstorm from the Adirondacks and Rt. 2 north, then increasing afternoon sunshine. Mostly sunny south this morning, then periods of afternoon clouds with a few scattered showers or a thunderstorm. Warm and humid. Highs in the low to mid 80s, near 80 far north. Light winds, becoming north to northwest near 10 mph.

Brief:

A warm, somewhat muggy start to the day, along with a few stray, spotty showers north, and mainly clear south, with high pressure and its fair weather centered farther south over the Virginias, while a cold front is approaching from the north. That front is near Quebec City, and extends west to the northern shores of the Great Lakes, and should gradually work south to the southern Adirondacks and Rt. 4 by midday, so any showers north will end, but the front and the heating of the sun will support a few scattered showers or thunderstorms, main south of the Adirondacks and Rt. 4 this afternoon, while increasing sun and lowering humidity begins to settle into northern sections. High pressure over Hudson Bay north of the front will create an easterly airflow, keeping a few showers lingering in southern areas this evening, before clearing skies expand south. This gives us mostly sunny skies, and more seasonable temperatures and humidity Friday and Saturday, with some cool and foggy nights, and sunny, pleasant afternoons. A warming trend develops over the weekend, so that another spell of summer warmth and increasing humidity is anticipated for early next week.

Winds:

Winds this morning light, becoming north to northwest near 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Winds from the north this evening less than 10 mph, gusting to 15 mph near Lake Champlain, diminishing to light and variable outside the Champlain Valley, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet. Winds on Friday light, becoming east to northeast less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet early, subsiding to near 1 foot. The outlook for Saturday calls for light winds, becoming west to southwest less than 10 mph.
