General Forecast:

Areas of valley fog burning off. Sunshine, mixing with some afternoon clouds. An isolated mountain sprinkle or brief shower possible. Highs in the mid 70s to near 80. Winds light, becoming west to southwest near 10 mph.

Brief Discussion:

A brisk summer morning – almost seems an oxymoron – but thermometers last night dipped into the 40s for much of the region, including 41 at Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks, and 43 in Island Pond, VT and Berlin, NH – all of them typical cold spots throughout the year.  The waters of Lake Champlain held readings there in the mid and upper 50s, as did the concrete and buildings in metro-Montreal.

High pressure is centered to our west over Ohio this morning, heading east and southeast toward the Virginia coast later today and tonight.  This will be close enough for lots of sunshine, however just far enough south to permit a little influence from a storm in northern parts of Quebec.  A minor disturbance rotating around the storm will help the air to rise this afternoon, and where that combines with air rising over the mountains, a few clouds will bubble up, and just maybe an isolated, sprinkley shower in the mountains this afternoon.  The setting of the sun will take care of that, with another clear, cool night, though not quite as cool as last night.

The high will move off the East Coast tomorrow, while a storm system bringing showers and thunderstorms to the northern Great Plains heads east, increasing our clouds tomorrow afternoon, leading to a rising chance of showers or a thunderstorm tomorrow night from west to east.  It appears the first piece of this storm will break off and curve northeast Sunday to join with the storm in northern Quebec.  This will tend to decrease the showers Sunday afternoon.  The rest of the storm comes through Monday and Monday night, with a re-newed chance of showers or a thunderstorm, but because of the influence of the storm to our north, it may track to our south.  This, combined with clouds and showers, could make for a rather cool, damp day Tuesday.

 

Mountain Forecast:

Some fog may lift up some of the mountain slopes this morning, otherwise sun, mixing with a few afternoon clouds today, in and out across the Presidential Range. An isolated shower possible, with light to moderate west winds, and a little milder. Partly sunny Saturday, with more afternoon clouds, and moderate southwest winds. Clouds in and out across the summits Sunday, with showers or a thunderstorm at times, more so in the morning. Increasing west to southwest winds.

Winds from the southwest near 10 mph this evening, diminishing to light and variable, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 foot or less. Winds on Saturday light, becoming south to southwest near 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Sunday's winds from the south to southwest 5 to 15 mph.

July 25th’s sunrise began the daylight hours at 5:30 this morning, and the sunset completes things at 8:23, adding up to 14 hours and 53 minutes of daylight.

Torrential downpours from thunderstorms focused on the Ottauquechee Valley on this date in 1859.  Flooding was reported to be the highest since 1811 according to a Woodstock newspaper.  The next day a reported tornado caused some damage to buildings in Groton, VT, noting it bounced over the hilly terrain.

Rainfall Amounts: No rain expected through tomorrow afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms starting Saturday night, tapering off Sunday afternoon and evening, with 0.25 to 0.50 inches, covering 60 percent of the area. Another period of showers and thunderstorms Monday into Tuesday, with again producing 0.25 to 0.50 inches, covering 60 percent of the area.

Drying Conditions: Good to excellent drying conditions today, with minimum relative humidities near 35 percent. Good drying conditions Saturday, with minimum relative humidities near 45 percent. Fair to poor drying expected Sunday with showers likely, and a good chance of showers continuing Monday and Tuesday.

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