Brief:

Some of late-summer’s finest weather erased yesterday morning’s chill, with blue skies, sunshine, and thermometers recovering to the upper 60s and low 70s. We find high pressure, which presided over the delightful weather, settling to our south this morning over Virginia, with mostly clear skies overnight, and still cool this morning, in the mid 30s to mid 40s, not nearly as cold as yesterday. The remnants of a weak front in the form of cloud debris have started spilling into the region, which means the sun will be filtered at times through some high clouds. This minor system is ahead of another area of high pressure, situated over Ontario this morning. As it builds east into Quebec, teaming up with the high to our south Saturday, the skies will become mostly clear once again, though much warmer air is found with this second high. This brings a warming trend through the weekend, with afternoon readings in the 70s today, then upper 70s to low 80s this weekend, the last weekend of summer on the calendars. A cold front approaches late Sunday night, with a few showers north and west, slowly spreading over the region Monday, with seasonably cool weather returning for the middle of next week.

Winds:

Winds today light, becoming west to southwest 5 to 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Winds overnight from the northwest 5 to 10 mph, diminishing to light and variable, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain 1 foot or less. On Saturday, light winds, mainly west to southwest 5 to 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain near 1 foot. Sunday’s outlook calls for winds increasing from the south to southwest near 10 mph east of the Green Mountains, and 10 to 15 mph, gusting to 25 mph from the Green Mountains west.
