The Week at a Glance (April 4-10):  Unseasonably cold temperatures mixing in with a clipper system from the Midwest have the potential to produce up to a few inches of snow on Monday. As the week progresses, temperatures will warm up a bit as a low pressure system moving in from the Midwest brings rain to the area.

Monday, April 4:  A wintry mix in the morning will transition to mostly rain by the afternoon. Although there is the potential for up to a couple of inches of snow in some areas, steadily increasing temperatures throughout the day means not much will stick to the roadways.

Tuesday, April 5:  Clearing skies will be accompanied by a high temperature of only 35 degrees, making for weather closer to January than to that of early April.

Wednesday, April 6:  Increasingly cloudy skies will usher in milder temperatures, with a high around 45.

Thursday, April 7:  Bands of moderate rain will move through the area, with temperatures bouncing back closer to seasonal normals in the upper 50’s. In Vermont, this rain system will likely be the final blow to many ski resorts that have already suffered through this warm winter.

Friday, April 8:  Temperatures will cool off again to the lower 50’s with light rain moving out of the area by the afternoon.

Saturday, April 9:  Temperatures dipping back into the 40’s and clear skies will be the dominant weather factor to start out the weekend.

Sunday, April 10:  As the Jet Stream begins to stabilize, temperatures will increase slightly to upper 40’s, and skies will remain mostly clear. Even though the upper 40’s may seem cold for this time of year, it was only last year when it ended up snowing in late April.
