September 1, 2014

The forecast for all of Vermont, and adjoining New Hampshire, New York, Quebec, and Massachusetts:

Tonight: Mostly clear early, then some periods of clouds after midnight. Areas of river valley fog east of the Greens. Lows mainly in the low to mid 60s, except upper 60s to around 70 in the Champlain, Hudson, and St. Lawrence Valleys. Winds light, becoming south near 10 mph from the Green Mountains west.

Tuesday: Some sunny periods in the morning, after any fog dissipates, then increasing clouds, and a rising chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon, becoming likely west of the Green Mountains. Warm and humid once again. Highs in the low to mid 80s. Winds becoming south to 10 to 15 mph.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms tapering off from west to east overnight. Lows in the mid to upper 50s in the northern mountains, low to mid 60s elsewhere. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph, turning west and diminishing.

 

Extended Forecast:

  Recreational  Return to top  

General Forecast:

Areas of fog lifting and burning off.  A mix of clouds and sun, with an isolated shower this morning northeast, and a few localized showers or thunderstorms far south this afternoon.  Warm and humid.  Highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s. Winds light, mainly south to southwest, picking up to 10 mph west of the Green Mountains.

 

Brief Discussion: 

We weren’t forecasting a perfect weekend, though Saturday certainly made every effort for some delightful late-summer weather.  A weak storm system did move in yesterday, however it had declining support from a push of cooler air as that tended to lift northeast.  We did see some showers, the most concentrated through parts of the Hudson Valley near Glens Falls, east into much of Bennington County, Chester and Springfield, then into NH near Lake Sunapee and over to Laconia.  What is left of those showers is to our south, but it could still bring a widely scattered or isolated shower or thunderstorm to far southern areas this afternoon.  Meanwhile, a very minor disturbance near Quebec City could squeeze out a stray sprinkle or isolate shower northeast this morning. 

Because the cooler air was not able to push into the region, we start very summer-like on this first of September – warm and muggy, with areas of fog, and readings in the 60s. 

Yesterday's weak storm system is to our east, leaving a fair amount of sun, and a fair amount of humidity in place. An isolated shower northeast is possible this morning with a minor disturbance over the Eastern Townships moving out, while the remnants of yesterday's system across far southern sections could trigger an isolated shower or thunderstorm there. A cold front approaches tomorrow with a rising chance of showers and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon, becoming likely through NY and into western VT later in the day, spreading east during the evening before tapering off. Less humid air, but warm for September settles in for Wednesday through Friday. By late Friday, the next chance of showers approaches the St. Lawrence Valley.

 

Mountain Forecast:

Some morning clouds over the summits, especially east and south, lifting and breaking for partly sunny skies, though the Presidential Range in NH will remain frequently in the clouds above 5000 feet.  A stray shower is possible.  Westerly winds decreasing, and quite mild.  Some sun Tuesday morning, then building clouds with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the Adirondacks in the afternoon, spreading east mid to late afternoon.  Warm southwest winds.  Breezy and a little cooler Wednesday, with a fresh northwest wind and clearing skies.

Winds at Lower Elevations:

Winds today will be light mainly south to southwest, picking up to 10 mph west of the Green Mountains, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 foot or less.   Light winds this evening, becoming south near 10 mph from the Green Mountains west, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain less than 1 foot,  building to 1 to 2 feet after midnight.  On Tuesday, south to southwest winds 10 to 15 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet.  Wednesday's outlook call for west winds near 10 mph.

September 1st’s sunrise occurs at 6:13, with the sunset some 13 hours and 14 minutes later at 7:27 this evening.  

September arrives with summer still in place, both on the calendar, and according to the weather records on this date in 2010.  A week of temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s included record highs of 92 in Burlington, VT, 93 in Albany, NY, and a roasting 95 in Concord, NH.  The heat finally broke on the 3rd after one of the longest and latest heatwaves on record.

Winds light, mainly south to southwest, picking up to 10 mph west of the Green Mountains.

Rainfall Amounts:    Only an isolated shower northeast this morning, and far south this afternoon, otherwise no rain expected today.  A rising chance of scattered showers or thunderstorms tomorrow, mainly in the afternoon, becoming likely west of the Green Mountains, spreading east, then tapering off by Wednesday morning.  Amounts of 0.25 to 0.50 inches, locally higher in thunderstorms.  Dry weather returns for Wednesday through Friday, with a slight chance of showers late Friday in the St. Lawrence Valley.

Drying Conditions:    Good expected today, just an isolated shower, with minimum relative humidities near 50 percent.  Fair to poor drying conditions Tuesday with high humidity, a rising chance of showers, and minimum relative humidities near 70 percent.  Good drying expected Wednesday through Friday.

Frost:   We will resume frost outlooks as conditions warrant.
