A nice weekend will be followed by more unsettled conditions next week. This is Nick with your latest forecast.

Today should be pretty nice out. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds, with highs working their way to around 70 degrees.

Tonight high pressure will keep us partly cloudy and cool, with lows of 42/52. Some patchy fog is possible too.

Thankfully Sunday is looking great! If you're heading out for the Vermont City Marathon 7am temperatures will be in the mid-50s, warming into the low/mid 60s by 9 AM, and closing in around the 70-degree mark by late morning.  Highs will eventually top out in the mid/upper 70s later in the afternoon.  Humidity levels will be comfortable, with dewpoints in the low 50s.  The wind will be light at the start of the race, then pick up just a bit out of the south by late morning and early afternoon.

After that our weather pattern will change. A storm system will move in for Memorial Day with mostly cloudy skies and periods of showers. The clouds will keep highs in the 60s. Southerly winds will also kick up to around 10-20 mph.

That storm will get cut off from the main flow of the jet stream so it will be spinning around for several days. That means Tuesday right through Friday we'll see a mix of sun and clouds, along with some scattered showers from time to time. In general the best chance for showers will occur during the afternoon hours (daytime heating helps air to rise, which then cools and causes clouds and showers to form). Temperatures will range from 65/75 on Tuesday, but we'll gradually cool off later in the week. In fact highs may struggle to hit 60 for some of us by Thursday and Friday.

In the meantime have a great weekend!
