We’ve got a raw and chilly day on tap today courtesy of a large and slow moving upper-level low which is spread across the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada. It will bring cool and mostly cloudy conditions to the region over the next several days. We can expect chances for scattered showers daily though none of the rainfall is expected to be heavy. By midweek temperatures should moderate back towards near normal as the low finally moves off the coast.

About Today’s Photo:
We took a little stroll along the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail in St. Johnsbury yesterday morning. There were many of the usual spring wildflower suspects blooming—trillium, bloodroot, trout lilies—and we came across a small group of lovely lavender tinted sharp-lobed hepatica blooming along the trail. Raindrops added a nice touch to the composition.
