An upper level trough of low pressure will move east from the upper
midwest and reach northern new england by tonight. Clouds and a few
showers are expected across the area today into this evening with
highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s. Drier air moves in on Sunday with
more sunshine expected and highs once again in the mid 70s to the
lower 80s. We are still looking at mostly sunny skies for
Monday... The day of the solar eclipse... With highs in the lower
to mid 80s. Another trough of low pressure approaches the region
on Tuesday and will increase the chances for showers and

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
As of 144 pm edt Saturday... Scattered to broken clouds with
some isolated showers mainly over the adirondacks and into the
champlain valley. Any shower will be brief and light.

Temperatures warming into the upper 70s to low 80s at early
afternoon and just about at their daytime highs. Earlier
forecast tracking along well and no changes needed.

Broad southwesterly flow today as the forecast area is between
a ridge to our east and an approaching trough to the west.

Boundary layer flow mainly south to southwesterly, and plentiful
low level moisture feeding cloud coverage and scattered showers.

A little bit of instability from what Sun reaches the ground
fueling isolated showers, but little if any forcing lift.

500 mb trough will sweep west to east through the region
tonight. Surface trough follows along, and while not big airmass
change for cooling temperatues a westerly wind component will
advect drier air into the forecast area. Isolated showers
possible mainly before midnight and in northeast vermont in
lingering low level moisture and as upper trough passes.

Surface dewpoints will fall from mid 60s into the 50s from west
to east overnight. Still quite a bit of cloud cover tonight, and
along with dewpoints will limit cooling of overnight lows to
55-65 degrees.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Monday
As of 436 am edt Saturday... High pressure builds into the
region on Sunday and moves south and east of the area on Monday.

Dry weather is expected during this period with increasing
amounts of sunshine each day. Highs on Sunday will be in the mid
70s to lower 80s with warmer temperatures on Monday as highs
will generally be in the lower to mid 80s. Solar eclipse viewing
should be good on Monday.

Long term Monday night through Friday
As of 430 am edt Saturday... All of the interesting weather in
the extended portion of the forecast will occur Tuesday and
Wednesday. Low pressure system approaches from the great lakes
region early Tuesday, northeastward towards eastern quebec by
Wednesday morning. Cold front associated with this low pressure
system will cross our forecast area Tuesday night into early
Wednesday. Best chance for showers will be overnight Tuesday.

May see some thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon ahead of
approaching cold front. Tuesday will be a bit cooler than Monday
but still much above seasonal normals, lower to upper 80s.

Highest temperatures will be in t
wide range of conditions expected across
the area with plenty of low level moisture around. Overall
looking atVFR to MVFR conditions... But there will be periods of
ifr to vlifr ceilings of visibilities through 12z due to low
clouds and fog. After 12z enough mixing will take place to
remove the low clouds and fog with southwest winds in the 5 to
15 knot range. There may be a few showers that move across the
area after 22z... But should not have an impact on aviation.

He champlain and connecticut
river valleys in southern vermont. A weaker surface trough
crosses our area Thursday, but only chance for some light
showers with this feature. Then a large ridge of surface high
pressure will build for the end of the week.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
