As the front shifts into southern New England tonight, a weak upper disturbance in the flow aloft will keep the chance for showers around, mainly across central and eastern Vermont. Fair and dry weather is expected to redevelop on Sunday, but will be short-lived as another cold front will move south from Canada Monday afternoon, accompanied by numerous showers and thunderstorms, some of which may be on the strong side.

Partridge berry is a small ground cover plant that grows in woodland acid soils. The fuzzy white flowers produce bright red berries that, as the name implies, are favored by partridges (a.k.a. ruffed grouse) as a food source.
