Gusty downslope winds will continue into this evening,

Midnight for localized gusts to 50 mph along the central and
southern western slopes of the Green Mountains.

Rain showers will continue through about 06z then become more
stratiform as a larger slug of moisture moves over our forecast
area from 06z till about 10z. Deeper moisture and stronger lift
aid in spreading the widespread rain across the area. Low
pressure system will move along NY/NE coast overnight. Heaviest
QPF will fall during this time, generally around a quarter to a
half an inch of rain overnight. Temperatures will remain mild
overnight with min temps only in the 50s with plenty of clouds

afternoon hours. Maximum temperatures will be cool, generally in
the 50s across the area.

increases in the afternoon and evening as an upper level low
pressure system tracks west of the Great Lakes and lifts a warm
front through the North Country during the overnight hours.
late-morning to early afternoon Monday will see a pre- frontal
trough will swing through with shortwave energy, bringing with
it showers with perhaps a thunderstorm or two. The later half of
Tuesday will see some brief breaks in showers before the cold
