Recreational Forecast

General:

Partly sunny this morning, then periods of clouds increasing. Scattered, localized afternoon showers or a thunderstorm south, more isolated north. Cool. Highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s from northern mountains to southern valleys. West to northwest wind 5 to 15 mph.

Brief:

Summer remains disguised as late-Spring, with cool temperatures, and a daily potential for showers. In fact, there is a chance of showers each day through next weekend – a somewhat discouraging thought, though that does not mean every place will see rain every day. During our warm weather months – and I use that term loosely this morning – our rain comes in the form of much briefer, though sometime more intense showers and thunderstorms, with at least several hours of dry weather each day. So, we’ll have the chance of showers each day, but we’ll also likely see the sun almost each day. A minor system is exiting northeast this morning, any stray showers or sprinkles north are ending, and it will be a partly sunny morning. Then more clouds will develop this afternoon, along with a few spotty showers north, and a better chance of localized showers or a thunderstorm south. That activity will drift north this evening, when northern areas will see a slightly better chance of a shower, before that ends overnight. Tomorrow, a weak system in the Great Lakes heads east, with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, a few might even produce some small hail. Wednesday appears drier, with just a few spotty showers, before a more organized system approaches Thursday with a rising chance of showers, becoming likely later Thursday and Thursday night, diminishing on Friday.

Winds:

Winds today from the west 5 to 15 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 to 2 feet. Winds overnight diminishing to light and variable, except continuing from the west near Lake Champlain about 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain subsiding to 1 foot or less. Winds on Tuesday light, becoming south to southwest 5 to 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Wednesday's outlook calls for west to southwest winds near 10 mph.

***winds and waves may be higher in the vicinity of thunderstorms***

Mountain:

The summits will start today and Tuesday partly sunny, clouds building midday and afternoon, and becoming in and out across the summits, with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms, more so south today, and all areas Tuesday. Winds light to moderate from the west, and temperatures on the cool side for late June, in the 40s and 50s. The outlook for Wednesday features more sun, but still the chance of a localized shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon. Temperatures will moderate a few degrees, and winds increasing to moderate from the west.
