The past couple of days have been on the cool side for July. Highs were in the upper 60’s on Wednesday and Thursday. Morning lows were 42 yesterday and 41 today. Is this July or September? Warm humid air is in the forecast for this weekend with showers and thunderstorms.
After cool weather at the end of last week, warmer and more muggy air has returned to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Today has been the worst with a current temperature of 82.8°, and a dew point of 67.4° at 2PM in Island Pond.
As a result of the warm muggy air over us, we are expecting showers and thunder storms this afternoon. Tomorrow a cold front is expected to move through returning us to much dries air.
Now that Memorial Day has past, it’s time to start getting the rest of the garden planted. I hope to get to a garden center over the next couple of days and picking up a few tomatoes and maybe even a few other vegetable sets to help get a few earlier harvests then I’ll get by just planting seeds. I’ll post some photos of my progress as I go.
The past several days haven’t been exceptionally hot, but dew points in the low to mid 60s have made it kind of muggy in the NEK. We’ve also seen some spotty heavy rain and thunderstorms in some areas. On Monday morning I was woken by a passing thunderstorm at 5:30 AM. The storm dropped .79 inches of rain here in Island Pond. I spoke to a friend that lives near Coles Pond in Walden and he said that they only had a few sprinkles. So, the storms are certainly hit or miss. I was expecting to see more rain last night as the cold front passed, but things were faily calm with a few spotty showers in the region. Here in Island Pond we only got .01″ of precipitation. Today has been partly sunny with temps in the upper 60s. The dew points have also been falling since the cold front passed through.
The uupcoming forcast is calling for unsettled weather through tomorrow with a chance of showers. The weekend I
is looking fantastic with sunny skies and temps in the mid to upper 70s throughout the Northeast Kingdom.
Here’s a recent image from our webcam. If you look at the grass in the foreground you will notice several yellow leaves. I’m not sure what is going on, but several of our birch trees have been dropping leaves over the past several days.
