Good Morning: Chilly, with some snow showers

It’s looking like some seasonable weather today, with some snow showers moving through as well. The record low for this day is minus 3 degrees, set in 1949, and while the forecast doesn’t have us anywhere near that, we’re looking like we’ll be in real November weather.

Highs in the low to mid-30s, with gusty winds up to 25 mph, and partly cloudy weather with light snow showers. It made for treacherous driving over the weekend, so be careful out there! The scanner in the newsroom came alive in the evening on Saturday, with icy road conditions sending a bunch of people off the road in Central Vermont.

From the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury, here’s the forecast discussion:

A string of swift moving weather systems will affect the area over the course of this week. The first of these is a very weak low pressure system that will zip in from the west today. Expect a couple of light snow showers with this system, but accumulations will minor or non-existent. A few of these snow showers will persist into the day tomorrow, despite a spot or two of sun. A more significant system could possibly develop offshore of the Mid-Atlantic tomorrow night or Wednesday. Whether this system will take a swipe at the area is uncertain, but recent model projections suggest that it may not. Nevertheless, if the storm marches up the coast, some accumulating snow would be possible on Wednesday, and so future forecasts should be monitored closely for any changes. Whether or not we see a midweek storm, expect below normal temperatures all week.
