532 AM EDT Wed Sep 20 2017

...Dry and unseasonably warm conditions continue...

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will continue to dominate for the better part of
the next week. While Hurricane Jose will remain southeast of New
England, onshore flow from coastal areas will result in periods
of low clouds and a chance of light showers for eastern Vermont
for parts of Wednesday before Jose drifts further east. Beyond
this, expect overall quiet and dry conditions with with well
above seasonal average temperatures throughout the period.
