Friday Morning In The Northeast About As Cold As Expected

The forecast for scattered frost this Friday morning seems to have been right on target. Most places in northern New England and northern New York got down into the mid and upper 30s, with low 40s in the warmer Champlain Valley.
A Friday morning Web cam shot from the National Weather Service office
in South Burlington, Vermont shows the
mostly clear skies that led to the chilly dawn. You can
also see valley fog below Mt. Mansfied, commn this
time of year.  

The coldest spot I could find was 28 degrees in Saranac Lake, New York, which is usually a particularly chilly town on clear, calm mornings.

It was 32 degrees in at least four Vermont communities, Canaan, Gallup Mills, Walden and Wheelock. Those towns are in the normally chilly Northeast Kingdom, so I'm not surprised there.

I'm not aware of any record lows being set this morning so far. The record low in Burlington was 37 degrees, and at last check, the coldest it got in the Queen City was 42. The record low in Montpelier is 34 degrees, and at last check the Capitol City had reached 37 degrees.

It'll warm up some today, there will be no frost tonight, and it'll be mild Saturday. Another cold front comes in Saturday night with a batch of showers. The cold front will bring a blustery day Sunday, and another chance of scattered frost to the coldest mountain valleys Sunday night.

Then, of all things, it looks like we'll get a spell of somewhat summery warm, humid weather during the middle of next week. Go figure.
