September 29, 2014

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

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with areas of low clouds, drizzle, and fog, especially along and east of the Green Mountains. Lows in the low to mid 50s, some upper 40s in the Adirondacks and northern New Hampshire. East to southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

Tuesday: Areas of low clouds, patchy drizzle, and fog lifting to mostly cloudy skies. Slight chance of an afternoon shower west of the Greens. Highs from the mid 60s to around 70, some lower 70s in the Champlain and Hudson Valleys. Winds mainly southeast less than 10 mph.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s north, low to mid 50s south and in the Champlain Valley. Light winds, variable to southeast.

 

Extended Forecast:

General Forecast:

Areas of fog burning off.  Variable clouds and intervals of sun.  A slight chance of a sprinkle or brief, light shower.  Not as warm.  Highs in the upper 60s to low 70s north, and mid to upper 70s in the Champlain Valley and south.  Winds light, becoming northeast in northern sections, southeast in southern sections less than 10 mph.        

 

Brief Discussion: 

Unsettled weather developing today, lingering through Wednesday morning as a weak cold front drifts south. The clouds will slowly lower, along with the slight chance of a sprinkle or passing, light shower, temperatures returning to more seasonable levels.

The warm weather from this past weekend lingers across the region this morning. A record high was reached in Burlington, with near record highs elsewhere, under sunny skies, decorate with some high clouds during the afternoon. The weather maps show the weak cold front stretched from the northern tip of Maine, west to Quebec City, the northern suburbs of Montreal, out to low pressure in the Great Lakes. The front will slowly drift south through Wednesday, while a disturbance in the upper atmosphere – associated with the low pressure in the Great Lakes - drifts east. This combination will only squeeze out an isolated sprinkle or shower, but a developing easterly airflow will bring lots of moisture to the lower atmosphere, especially east of the Green Mountains, resulting more low clouds and fog there, with patches of drizzle, holding temperatures down. A few breaks of sun are possible, more so to the west, but also a slight chance of a shower Tuesday afternoon.

High pressure will build in Wednesday, gradually clearing the skies, leading to partly sunny, and seasonably mild weather through Friday.

 

Mountain Forecast:

The summits can expect lots of clouds today, lowering to near the northern summits, with an isolated shower possible.  Light winds and a little cooler.  On Tuesday, the summits will be frequently in the clouds, possible a brief shower, continued light winds and cooler.  Wednesday's outlook is for morning low clouds to break for some sun, light east winds, and seasonable.

Winds at Lower Elevations:

Winds today will be light, becoming northeast in northern sections, southeast in southern sections less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 foot or less.    Winds light, mainly east less than 10 mph, and north up to 15 mph on Lake Champlain before decreasing overnight, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet this evening, subsiding to less than 1 foot.  Winds on Tuesday continued light, mainly southeast less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 foot or less. Wednesday's outlook calls for light winds, mainly northeast less than 10 mph.

The sunrise on this 29th day of September is at 6:45 and sunset occurs at 6:36.  That gives us 11 hours and 51 minutes of possible sunlight.  

On this date in 1844, a rather early start to the winter startled residents.  Several inches of snow fell over higher elevations of the northeast from Pennsylvania to Maine.  6 inches was noted in Wheelock, VT, in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom, while 8 or 9 inches was reported from Stewartstown, NH, in the upper reaches of the Connecticut River near the Canadian border.
