HARDWICK – Last week we saw a transition from sunny and hot conditions to a cooler and showery period. Highs on Wednesday managed to reach the low to mid-80s again before the arrival of multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms that lasted through the weekend. The overall precipitation amounts ranged from one and a half to two and a half inches and conditions remained intermittently cloudy and showery with cool temperatures through early this week.

We are expecting to transition back to warmer than normal temperatures as we progress through the week as more breaks of sunshine peak through the clouds. We will be briefly under the influence of high pressure today into Thursday which will progressively increase the amount of sunshine. We expect highs by Thursday to reach the lower 80s.

A weak frontal system will cross northern Vermont Thursday night into Friday morning bringing showers and thunderstorms with brief heavy downpours and then another area of high pressure will cross directly overhead for the weekend with wall to wall sunshine and highs in the 80s for both Saturday and Sunday.

Wednesday: Partly Cloudy. Perhaps an isolated shower in the afternoon. High: 75 Low: 52.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with clouds increasing by evening. Showers and thunderstorms developing overnight. High: 81 Low: 57.

Friday: Showers and thunderstorms in the morning with progressive clearing in the afternoon. High: 77 Low: 52.

Saturday: Sunny. High: 83 Low: 56.

Sunday: Sunny. High: 87 Low 61.
