Weather: Partly sunny, warm, and muggy (8/11/18)

Torrance’s Forecast: – Hello everyone, this is SkyTracker Meteorologist Torrance Gaucher with your forecast from the SkyTracker Weather Center. From periods of sunshine to increasing afternoon clouds, it’s been a decent day for much of the region. Semi-quiet weather will continue for the coming days, with an isolated shower or two. But, no washouts to worry about. Then, early to middle part of next week we are looking at daily chances for rain or a weak thunderstorm. We do still need more rain, as much of western Vermont, and northern New York is sitting under a moderate drought.

Wrapping up the rest of your Saturday with a mix of clouds north, with scattered rain south. A few minor showers will drift north into the overnight hours, so be prepared for an isolated shower or two. Otherwise we are partly cloudy, warm, and muggy. Saturday night into Sunday morning, the morning lows will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Couple with identical dewpoints, areas of fog will kick off the day as well. Sunday will start off with sunshine across New York’s North Country and much of the northern half of the Champlain Valley. Cloudy, yet still dry across central Vermont. But, we are still likely to see areas of rain across southern Vermont and New Hampshire to start the day. Those showers will dissipate into the late morning, though the clouds will continue to rotate into the northwestern areas. A stray afternoon shower is not out of the question, though it will be a primarily dry afternoon. We will remain warm (seasonable) with dewpoints in the middle 60s, making it a soupy kind of afternoon.

Sunday night to Monday morning will be mostly dry, though an isolated shower can’t be ruled out, along with areas of morning fog. Warm and muggy again with lows only reaching the low and middle 60s. Monday for the most part will be very similar to Sunday. Highs will reach the low and middle 80s, with higher humidity. Our active weather will arrive by Tuesday, as an upper level disturbance will send waves of energy (weak fronts) passing northern New England. This will give us daily chances for rain and a non-severe thunderstorm. Temperatures will remain consistent in the low and middle 80s. Unfortunately, there is no break from this pattern until late next week.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, an isolated shower or two (especially southern VT & Upper Valley). Then morning fog, may be thick in protected valleys. Low, upper 50s & lower 60s. Wind: Light & Variable

Sunday: Some sunshine northwest and clouds/showers southeast. Otherwise a partly sunny afternoon with a few minor showers. High, low to middle 80s and muggy. Wind: Southeast 5-8mph

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, an isolated shower or two, then patchy fog. Low, lower and middle 60s. Wind: Light & Variable

Monday: Partly sunny, a stray afternoon shower or thunderstorm is possible, otherwise dry. High, lower and middle 80s. Wind: South 5-8mph

Tuesday: Partly to mostly clouds, scattered rain or a weak thunderstorm. High, lower and middle 80s.

Have a great night!
