|More daffodils: This is coming very soon, trust me!|
All getting us ready for the big greenup coming in the next few weeks.
The wild temperature gyrations of the past couple of days will moderate a bit, but we are still in for an up and down ride.
We managed to squeak out a couple of record highs Monday, like in Montpelier. Burlington had its first summerlike 80 degree reading of the year Monday, so the forces of spring have finally gotten a good start.
Tuesday was fascinating, with a sharp temperature gradient across the area. At one point Tuesday afternoon, it was 43 degrees in Montreal and 83 in Bennington, Vermont. Quite a contrast!
It won't be that ridiculous for the next few days. It'll be cool-ish today with highs in the upper 40s and 50s - which is right around normal for this time of year. It'll keep gradually getting sunnier and sunnier as we go through the day.
Friday looks to be a beauty, with sunshine and temperatures well into the 50s, maybe flirting with 60.
But we always need those April showers and the weather gods will deliver. A warm front will make a run at New England Saturday, with a nice package of gusty showers.
We'll get a brief warm blurt on Easter Sunday between the showers as temperatures heat up into the 70s. Might be a spot 80 degree or two that day if enough sun comes out. It all depends upon the time timing of more showers as the warm front departs Sunday morning and a cold front approaches later Sunday.
Then it's back to chilly weather early next week, with high temperatures in the 40s to around 50. That''s a little cool for this time of year but it's nothing out of the ordinary.
We really are getting a break from wht has been an active weather year so far here in Vermont.
