A cold front has its sights set on our region today as low pressure moves through Vermont. This front will act to sweep away any remaining warm air, and you’ll know when it arrives. Light winds ahead of the front will jump up into the 40-50 mph range as the front passes through, and a line of heavy showers is also likely to develop along and just ahead of the front. Skies will be cloudy for most areas today, but breaks of sun will develop in the south this evening as those westerly winds usher in much drier air.
As far as precip goes, radar shows plenty of rain out there now, and that’s likely to continue for the next hour or two. After that, it’s probably reasonable to expect a break in the action around lunchtime, before precip ramps back up again during the afternoon as the front rushes through. Behind the front, rain will change to heavy snow in the mountains, and precip will end at lower elevations.
Temps will start out in the upper 40’s to mid 50’s this morning before falling into the 30’s after the front this evening.
