301 AM EDT Fri Jul 12 2024

Slight chances for some showers and thunderstorms will continue
through Saturday. Sunday will see the beginning of a stretch of
drier, but hotter conditions into the middle of next week.


As of 300 AM EDT Friday...A weak surface high is trying to build in
today but, some lingering moisture from a stalled front along the
eastern seaboard will still provide the fuel for a couple showers
and thunderstorms this afternoon. Temperatures today will be in the
upper 70s to mid 80s and dew points in the 60s for continued muggy

Overnight, chances for showers will shift to eastern and southern VT
as a shortwave moves through southern New England. Chances for
overnight fog will continue across the northern counties due to the
saturated conditions of the last few days. Overnight, lows will be
in the 60s to low 70s.

Saturday will see another chance for some showers and thunderstorms,
though while not widespread, could impact some recent inundated
areas across central VT. If the ridge does build in a bit more,
convection hopefully remain further south in the less hard hit
regions. Highs will again be hot and muggy with highs in the mid to
upper 80s.


As of 300 AM EDT Friday...Saturday night looks to be quiet as the
upper ridge finally moves over the area leading to clear night with
overnight lows in the 60s.

Sunday will be the beginning of another round of impactful heat and
humidity as temperatures push back into the 80s and 90s in the
valleys. Experimental NWS HeatRisk continues shows moderate risk
across much of the region, highlighting the risk for people
sensitive to heat, so be sure to practice heat safety.


As of 415 PM EDT Thursday...Heading into early next week, southerly
flow will continue to bring warm and humid conditions to the region,
with 925mb temperatures near 25C. High temperatures will continue to
be in the 80s to near 90s, with dewpoints in the 60s making it feel
quite humid out. Experimental NWS HeatRisk shows moderate risk
across much of the region, highlighting the risk for people
sensitive to heat, so be sure to practice heat safety.

By the middle of the week, more widespread showers look to pass
through the region as a frontal boundary associated with a closed
low over Ontario swings through the region, although there is still
some uncertainty among guidance at the moment and will have to be
monitored as we get closer.


Through 00Z Sunday...Primarily MVFR and VFR conditions across the
forecast area, with SLK bouncing between IFR and VFR. Stations
should trend to MVFR and IFR overnight before rebounding to VFR
after sunrise. A few locations may remain with lingering MVFR
through mid-morning before improving. Expect light and variable
winds at most sites thru the period.


Saturday: VFR. Slight chance SHRA, Slight chance TSRA.
Saturday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Sunday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Sunday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHRA.

As of 415 PM EDT Thursday...Some scattered showers continue
across the region this afternoon, with rainfall amounts
generally 0.10-0.30 inches or less.

Most of the mainstem rivers have crested at this point, with
several fallen below flood. The Winooski, Passumpsic, and
Lamoille basins are still experiencing flood. Visit
