The upper level trough that brought our overnight showers continues to push to the east this and any remaining rainfall will come to an end mid morning across most of Vermont. High pressure combined with hot and humid conditions will pull in today into Sunday bringing a bit of a heat wave into early next week. A cold front will move through Tuesday night into Wednesday bringing showers and somewhat cooler temperatures.
