I got a ride from the auto shop yesterday, and the driver and I talked about the weather, for lack of another topic (although we did move on to hunting season eventually).
Yesterday’s forecast was cloudy, getting warmer, maybe sun in the afternoon, giving way to sprinkles and then snow overnight.
“Gotta love Vermont,” he said. If you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes. Looks like another one of those days. You’re either waking up to snow, or rain, or the aftermath of one or the other this morning, depending on where you are in Vermont. Today it’s supposed to climb up into the 40s, with some sun, some clouds, and perhaps some snow. Then temperatures will fall into the 20s, and we’re forecast to send out the week with clouds and 40-degree weather.
The forecast discussion from the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury:
A cold front swept through the area late last night, bringing winds around to the northwest. Significantly colder air will wash over the area today, causing tumbling temperatures despite some partial sunshine. Lingering low level moisture will generate a few snow showers this afternoon as the cool air ascends our elevated terrain.
High pressure now over the Great Lakes region will then steadily advance eastward, bringing on fair weather for tomorrow. But as the system moves east tomorrow night, a developing frontal system over the central states will be going to creep east. This looks to bring some light, mixed precipitation, changing to rain, beginning Friday night and persisting into the weekend.
