Recreational Forecast

General:

Mostly cloudy this afternoon with scattered rain showers over high terrain, and widely scattered in the valleys. Highs from the mid to upper 40s northeast to the upper 50s southwest. Winds from the south to southwest at 10 to 15 mph, occasionally gusting to 25 mph.

Brief:

High pressure is departing off the East Coast this morning allowing a deepening low pressure system near Lake Huron and its attendant warm front to approach from the west. Showers will develop ahead of the warm front from southwest to northeast this morning and early afternoon. The clouds and showers will keep temperatures cool for much of the day. Showers should decrease following the warm frontal passage late this afternoon and temperatures will rise into the 50s during the evening hours across most of the region. The low pressure area will lift northeastward through southern and central Quebec, sweeping a strong cold front across the region overnight. The cold front will bring another round of showers followed by a gusty west breeze and falling temperatures. The colder air will cause snow to mix with rain over the northern hills before widespread precipitation tapers to widely scattered flurries and sprinkles after midnight. A light dusting of snow will be possible by sunrise Tuesday over the mountain tops. A few hilltop flurries or sprinkles will linger Tuesday morning over the north, as a weak trough slides across the region. Otherwise, high pressure to our south will bring partly to mostly sunny skies on Tuesday, before another cold front brings more showers Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Colder temperatures and accumulating higher elevation snow showers will follow from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday.

Winds:

Today: South to southwest wind 10-15 mph with a few gusts of 20-25 mph over the higher elevations and in the Champlain Valley. Tonight: Wind shifting to west 10-20 mph with gusts 30-35 mph. Tuesday: West wind 10-20 mph with gusts 25-35 mph. On Lake Champlain, the National Weather Service Forecast is for south winds 15 to 25 knots, increasing to 20 to 30 knots afternoon with waves 2 to 5 feet. Winds turn west tonight at 20 to 30 knots with waves 2 to 4 feet. On Tuesday, west winds 15 to 25 knots decreasing to 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon and waves 1 to 3 feet subsiding to 1 foot in the afternoon.
