General:

Mostly sunny, with some high clouds arriving south and west later in the afternoon. Highs in the 70s to near 80. Light winds, becoming south up to 10 mph, mostly west of the Green Mountains.

Brief:

Chilly high pressure that expanded south from Quebec is giving our start to Summer an oddly cool start. Most areas dipped into the 40s, but some 30s were in the coldest mountain valleys north. Of course, our longest days come with early sunrises, so thermometers are already recovering, and although this high pressure system begins to slip away to the east today, it should leave us with a spectacular day – sunshine, with highs in the 70s, and relatively light winds, stirring from the south this afternoon, especially west of the Green Mountains. The weekend looks less spectacular, hampered by clouds, showers, and a continuation of cool temperatures. The departure of this morning’s high will be followed by a storm system tracking northeast from the Ohio Valley will bring developing rain showers west to east tomorrow, lingering through Sunday night. Temperatures will be cool Saturday, in the 60s and low 70s, a bit warmer Sunday, mostly in the 70s, but cooling off again Monday, as skies begin to clear. But don’t despair, if you are concerned about summer. The weather pattern is expected to evolve into a much warmer one later next week and into early July.

Winds:

Winds today light, becoming south less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Overnight, south winds near 10 mph, becoming light, except increasing to 10 to 20 mph near Lake Champlain, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain building to 2 to 3 feet. On Saturday, light winds becoming south less than 10 mph, and south winds near Lake Champlain diminishing to 10 to 15 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 2 to 3 feet, subsiding to 1 to 2 feet in the afternoon. The outlook for Sunday calls for light winds, becoming north near 10 mph.
