...Dry North Winds Today...

.DISCUSSION...
A dry cold front will dissipate while tracking southward across the 
North Country early this morning. The front will bring a drying
northerly flow to the region throughout the daylight hours, with 
winds locally northeasterly in the St. Lawrence Valley. Skies will 
trend mostly sunny by late morning or early afternoon, with minimum RH 
values around 30 percent. After a quiet night, low pressure
moving northward from the Carolinas will bring numerous showers
across our region on Tuesday, and across eastern and south-
central Vermont on Wednesday. Very warm temperatures are
expected on Thursday with high pressure in place aloft. A 
surface cold front will bring the potential for more showers, 
and potentially a thunderstorm, on Friday.
