Good morning: Cold, clear week ahead

Late light grazes bare branches below as the high ridge of Hunger Mountain is pale with a fresh coating of snow Tuesday in this view from Minister Brook Road in Worcester.

The frost made fantastic leafy patterns on the windows here this morning, which means to me fall is well and truly here. We had some heavy, wet snow up in the mountains yesterday around Killington, with big fat flakes and some sloppy driving for a bit. But the week ahead is looking cool and clear, with temperatures in the 40s and few clouds to be seen.

Today, look for mostly sunny skies north to south, with highs between 39 and 46, cooler in the north. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the forecast is the same, with lows in the high 20s or low 30s.

The forecast discussion from our friends at the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury:

High pressure is centered on the Ohio Valley today and is forecast to gradually drift north and east toward the region. With winds primarily out of the north, today will feature temperatures a few degrees below normal despite the abundant sunshine. Not much changes through the coming weekend, as reinforcing high pressure will bolster our current system. Look for pleasant, cool days and clear, chilly nights into early next week. Great fall weather.
