General Forecast:

TODAY:  Partly to mostly sunny south. 

Mostly cloudy to start, north, with scattered snow or rain showers, then decreasing clouds, along with isolated lingering sprinkles.

Highs 44-51 north, and ranging through the 50s south.  Wind northwest freshening to 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

Brief Discussion: 

A gusty northwest wind will freight fresh polar air into the state today behind a pair of cold fronts—one dangling southward from LOW pressure over the Gaspe, and another quickly approaching the St. Lawrence Valley. HIGH pressure centered over James Bay this morning will shift eastward across Quebec, and by tomorrow morning will be ridged from a center over the north-central portion of that province southward through New England. This should ensure below normal temperatures through tonight, then a slow recovery beginning tomorrow, Easter Sunday. The next chance for widespread precipitation will come Tuesday through Wednesday. A series of LOW pressure systems will slide across the Great Lakes into New England at that time, then consolidate along the New England coast. 

Mountain Forecast:

Today: Scattered snow showers north to start, gradually becoming partly cloudy during the PM. Summits frequently in cloud to start, then breaking into the clear this afternoon. S'n Greens/Tacs/Berks--Partly cloudy.  Tonight: Clear or clearing. Easter: Mostly sunny--just some high clouds from time to time.

  The Weather Journal  Return to top  

April 19th begins with a sunrise at Montpelier of 6:00, and by the time the sun sets at 7:40 this evening, we will have had 13 hours and 40 minutes of possible sunshine. 

A rare April heat wave was climaxing on this date during the Bicentennial year of the United States, 1976.  Thermometers reached mid-summer levels, including 90 degrees in Montpelier and St. Johnsbury, 91 in Burlington, and 97 in Vernon, VT.  These figures set records for the hottest weather so early in the year, as well as the highest temperatures ever in April.  This second record was subsequently broken during the hot April of 1990.
