Detailed Discussion

Showery weather in northern and western areas developed yesterday, while the sun was kinder to areas east and south of the Green and White Mountains, resulting in a wide range of weather for the region. This morning, the weather has opted for a more-unified look – sunshine region-wide, a comfortable start to the day, with a sunny, warm afternoon on the way for Midsummer’s Day, an antiquated reference to the beginning of summer. High pressure progressed from the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley overnight, clearing our skies, and settling over the Virginias this morning. With the clearing skies and light winds, yesterday’s leftover moisture from the showers has promoted areas of dense fog, expected to burn off by mid-morning. This high will continue to drift south and east through the day today, offering a generous supply of sunshine, while its circulation begins to turn winds to the southwest, warming us considerably this afternoon, reaching the upper 70s and 80s. As this high exits off the East Coast tonight, it makes room for yet another energetic storm and its frontal systems on Wednesday. That storm has strengthened on its journey through the Canadian prairies, centered over Ontario this morning. Dropping south from the storm, a warm drops south into the Midwest, lifting east through the Ohio Valley today with some showers. That arrives later tonight into Wednesday morning few a few showers, tending to decrease as they attempt to move through later tonight into Wednesday morning. A minor cold front quickly follows tomorrow morning, not changing the temperatures much, but deflecting any significant humidity to our south. The result should be a partly sunny, breezy, and pleasantly warm day. Later tomorrow, the storm in Ontario pivots a stronger cold front around in its circulation, pushing into the Great Lakes this morning, southwest to Nebraska. That front, and a second one forming a bit more to the northwest, will be more active, with a rising chance of showers and thunderstorms later tomorrow in the St. Lawrence Valley into northern NY, becoming numerous and spreading east Wednesday night. Much cooler air follows on Thursday, with some lingering clouds and a few showers early in the day, tending to give way to increasing periods of sunshine. Delightful weather returns for the end of the week, but another system increases the chances of showers for the weekend.

Unusual weather – even for our area – makes a unique entry in the record books on this date in 1983. Thunderstorms developed due to some very cold air above. This meant hail – up to an inch in diameter in Quechee during the balloon festival. As cold air descended toward the ground, it became cold enough for snow to fall in Sharon and Hartford, VT – about a quarter inch, enough to scrape together a summer-time snowball!
