Recreational Forecast

General:

Areas of dense river valley fog burning off by mid-morning. A mix of sun and clouds south, becoming mostly sunny, and mostly sunny north. Continued seasonably cool. Highs in the low to mid 70s, near 70 over the higher terrain north. Winds light and variable, mainly northeast less than 10 mph.

Brief:

Periods of clouds worked south yesterday and overnight, part of a weak weather front supplying a re-enforcing shot of cool, dry air to finish up the weekend, and start off next week, perhaps offering a hint of fall as many students head back to the classroom.
Cool high pressure finds itself over northern Maine this morning, resulting in some 40s and 50s through the region, while the low clouds south have mostly moved out, and some areas of dense river valley fog have formed. There is just enough of an easterly airflow off the Atlantic to introduce moisture into southern areas this morning, leading to some periods of clouds, but they should give way to increasing sunshine. This high will drift east, which means our cool start will turn quite pleasant this afternoon. Meanwhile, a storm forming well to our east over the Atlantic, will lift into Nova Scotia, splitting the high into one piece over the North Atlantic, and a second one reforming over New England tomorrow into Tuesday morning. This high will gradually weaken, making way for a cold front tracking east through the Great Plains today, and into the Mississippi Valley tomorrow, reaching the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes Tuesday. That timing brings the front here on Wednesday into Wednesday night, spreading scattered to numerous showers over us. Thursday remains a bit uncertain, as a trailing disturbance could keep periods of clouds and a few showers lingering Thursday, followed by another episode of seasonably cool, dry weather by the end of the week.

Winds today light, mainly northeast less than 10 mph, with waves on the open waters of Lake Champlain less than 1 foot.
