There is an Areal Flood Watch in effect for all of Vermont through Monday morning.
Two low pressure systems—one currently out over the eastern Great Lakes and one riding up the coast near New Jersey—will deliver a cool, rainy, and blustery day as they track east and up the New England coast over the next 24 hours. We’ll see rain with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Highs in will only be in the upper 50s with east winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. Chance of rain is near 100%. Showers will continue into tonight with a slight chance of thunderstorms until midnight, then showers likely after midnight. Lows will be around 50 with east winds 10 to 15 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable. Chance of rain is 70%.
Rain will linger into Monday morning with cloudy skies and a 50% chance of showers. Highs will be in the mid 60s with light and variable winds, becoming northwesterly around 10 mph in the afternoon as the showers depart and a ridge of high pressure builds in briefly. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the lower 50s and light and variable winds.
Tuesday should start out partly sunny with a 40% chance of showers later in the day as another low pressure system approaches from the Great Lakes. It’ll be warmer with highs in the mid 70s and south winds around 10 mph. Tuesday night showers are likely with a chance of thunderstorms. Lows will be in the lower 60s. Chance of rain is 60%.
