General Forecast:

Cloudy with showers likely this morning, perhaps a thunderstorm, from the Green Mountains west, scattered east to the CT Valley and about I-91, and isolated east into NH, decreasing this afternoon.  Highs only in the upper 60s to mid 70s.  Winds becoming southeast near 10 mph. 

Brief Discussion: 

We’re on the cusp, on the fence, life on the edge…..one of those weather situations that brings very different conditions depending on your location in the VPR listening area.  We have listeners as far east as Upton, ME, extending north to Montreal, west through the St. Lawrence Valley, Adirondacks and Hudson Valley, as well as extending into northern MA.  I’m not counting our internet listeners in North Carolina and Alaska. 

Today’s forecast involves a weakening storm tracking east from the Great Lakes, centered north of Lake Ontario, with an arc of showers running from the Ottawa Valley east into Montreal, then south through eastern NY and western VT, through the Berkshires and Hudson Valley and sparsely covering the western hills of CT.  This area is tracking east and decreasing, though the heaviest concentration over the Hudson Valley and Lake George may take a little longer.

Mountain Forecast:

The Green Mountains, Berkshires and Adirondacks will be frequently in the clouds with showers, possibly a thunderstorm, while clouds lower to near the tops of the White Mountains, with a few widely scattered showers.  Light to moderate southeast winds, and cool.   On Friday, the summits will start mainly in the clouds, lifting to be in and out across the summits in the afternoon, along with a few brief showers, especially across the White Mountains, southern Green Mountains, and Berkshires.  Clearing is expected for the weekend.

Winds at Lower Elevations:

Winds today will be southeast 5 to 15 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot, building to 1 to 2 feet later in the day.  Southeast winds this evening 5 to 15 mph, decreasing overnight, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain subsiding to less than 1 foot.  Friday's winds mainly from the east to southeast near 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot.  On Saturday, winds continued light, mainly southeast less than 10 mph.

Sunrise on this 21st day of August, was at 6:00, and will set this evening at 7:46, 13 hours and 46 minutes later. 

On this date in 1925, autumn was getting ahead of itself as scattered frost edged into the colder mountain valleys.  Somerset, high in the southern Green Mountains dropped to 26.  Most other areas were not so extreme, though I’m sure it felt more than a little chilly in Cavendish and Chelsea, where the mercury sank to 31.  It was a sign of things to come, as October of 1925 saw two very early snowstorms.

Cloudy with showers likely this morning, perhaps a thunderstorm, from the Green Mountains west, scattered east to the CT Valley and about I-91, and isolated east into NH, decreasing this afternoon.  Highs only in the upper 60s to mid 70s.  Winds becoming southeast near 10 mph.

Brief Discussion: 

 

 

Rainfall Amounts:    Showers likely today from the Green Mountains west, covering 70 percent of the area, scattered east to the CT Valley and about I-91, covering 50 percent, and isolated east, covering 20 percent.  Showers tapering off to scattered showers in southwest VT and the Berkshires Friday, isolated elsewhere.  Rainfall totals through Friday near 0.10 inches in the CT Valley east into NH, increasing to 0.25 to 0.50 inches from the Green Mountains west, locally up to an inch in western VT, the Berkshires, and into NY.  Generally dry weather Saturday into early next week.

Drying Conditions:   Fair to poor drying conditions today from the Green Mountains west, with showers and minimum relative humidities near 70 percent.  Fair drying in the CT valley, with scattered showers, and fair to good drying through NH, with isolated showers, and minimum relative humidities near 50 percent.  Fair drying conditions Friday, with isolated showers, and minimum relative humidities near 55 percent.  Good drying expected Saturday through Monday.

Frost:   We will resume frost outlooks in September, or as conditions warrant.
