This is turning into a case of "welcome to the weather in Vermont!" Each time we get new forecast data in about the holiday weekend, the more it seems to go downhill. What looked like a sunny, calm, cool Race Day on Sunday is now looking wet, windy and downright chilly.
Of course, we still have several more days to sort this out and things can easily change. But at this point, it looks like we can expect showers for the race. The wind will be brisk out of the north, and temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 40s for a low in the morning, and only reach the low-to-mid 50s for a high.
We will continue to watch this developing weather pattern closely over the next few days to see how it will evolve. But be prepared for some wild changes in the race day forecast as Sunday draws closer.
The water level on Lake Champlain is 96.05 feet, which is well under the flood stage of 100 feet. There should be no flooding problems along the lake like there were in 2011. The water temperature is 50°.
