Your MAX Benefit Prediction

BURLINGTON, Vermont (WCAX) – Happy Easter to all who celebrate! The good news is that today won’t be as wet as yesterday, but it will still be brisk for mid-April with scattered showers. Expect mostly cloudy skies with some sunny spells. Temperatures will only soar into the 40s this afternoon, but with a steady northwesterly wind, wind chills will likely stay in the 30s throughout the day.

High pressure builds later tonight and we will see skies clear completely overnight. This will set the stage for a chilly night. Many of us will wake up to temperatures in the 20s on Monday morning with some possible teenagers in some of the cooler pockets of the Northeast Kingdom and the Adirondacks.

Monday begins with plenty of sunshine, and we will have a brief return to temperatures in the 50s during the afternoon. Clouds begin to rise Monday evening as two low pressure systems approach. The developing Coastal Low will feed off plenty of moisture, while the system approaching the Great Lakes will pack in cold air for this time of year. This means that heavy wet snow will be possible in parts of our region. This will likely be a highly elevation dependent event, where high terrain above 1500′ and peaks could see over 6″ of spring snowfall, while the Champlain and St. Lawrence Valley will likely see a dusting an inch or two at the most.

We will see a window of dry weather on Wednesday behind this system, before the showers return on Thursday. Any snow we pick up on Tuesday shouldn’t last long as temperatures return to the 50s by the middle or end of the week. The Max Advantage weather team continues to monitor and refine our forecast for Tuesday’s storm. Stay with us for the latest updates.

Have a nice day!
