Forecast Discussion, from our friends at the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury:
The high pressure system that provided a fine day yesterday is now shoving off to our east. Its departure will mean that a frontal system taking shape to our west will be free to approach. Clouds will thicken and lower as a result today, and overnight, rain showers will break out. Cool surface temperatures could briefly allow for a few pockets of freezing rain at the onset. Thereafter, a string of disturbances will keep the chances for bouts of precipitation high into early next week. Some of these may include snow, but intrusions of warm air should prevent the buildup of a substantial snowpack.
