Brief:

We have just a stellar weekend on tap to get outside. High pressure over the western Atlantic helps stream a very warm air mass overhead, for the end of September. Therefore highs today and tomorrow crest into the mid 70s to lower 80s over the valleys, accompanied by lots of sunshine today. Although skies will be a bit muted due to smoke in the upper atmosphere because of the ongoing wildfires out west. Tomorrow offers a repeat of today, more or less, although skies include a bit more cloud cover than today. It remains dry this weekend although there is an outside shot of a passing shower over for Southern Vermont. With dry and sunny conditions this makes for a great opportunity to do some fall activities such as apple picking or checking out the delightful colors on the trees. If you do plan on being out on the water this weekend be prepared for gusty south winds at 10 to 15 mph with gusts over the waters of Lake Champlain between 25 and 35 mph, both later today and tomorrow. Warm conditions stick around for the start of the new week but a wet weather pattern starts to take over the region late Monday through the middle of the new week. While drought conditions have made for endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, much needed rainfall comes through the middle of the new week. While it does not happen too often in our climate, you may have to shake the dust off that underutilized rain gear.

Winds:

Winds become breezy this weekend, from the south at 10 to 15 mph gusting to 30 mph over the waters of Lake Champlain. It remains breezy on Sunday as well with similar winds to today.
