What a forecast bust today.  
Today...Patchy dense fog this morning. Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 60s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
Its been like 100% clouds pretty much all day.  
One CLR observation at 7am but CAA and mountains... not gonna be all sun.  We wish we were in SNE.

Fall is in the air.  Widespread 60s and dry dews.

Good question. Should probably time it with a Noreaster with 12" upslope on the back side :)

Gorgeous place!  However, having heated mostly with wood for decades, I can't imagine not having a woodstove in the north country, preferably on an inside wall (unlike our current place with stove on outside wall) so the chimney gives heat to the house all the way to the roofline.  Some folks, my wife included, would rather not see firewood hauled into a brand new home.

we're going with an RSF fireplace, which gives out up to 70,000 BTUS and has a heat distribution system that can bring heat into the finished basement as well (it can even be ducted into the HVAC). So it's a bit of a combo between a fireplace and a stove

Whats the sqft?

About 3200 sf (I believe) with the finished basement, 5 bedrooms.

yeah love the crib Alex. That’s my type of place. Looks amazing.

Thanks! The landscaper is doing an awesome job too (work in progress). Lots of rocks and boulders, a large patio with log pergola, firepit and a big waterfall/pond. Very mountain-y

Beautiful evening walking the dog after a fall-like day...

Feels like its going to get chilly here in the valley bottom now that the clouds are starting to clear up.

Yeah not what was expected today.  I want some deep blue views to MWN.

Early morning was beautiful and later in the evening was too. In between, not so much. I was messing around at the golf course and the skys were clear and the temps were cool. 58 at 7:00 when I left.

Yup it’s cleared out and plummeting.  

Down to 52F across the river at the Stowe Country Club.  Should be in the 40s in no time.  

The gradient along Lake Champlain is crazy this time of year too...mid-60s along the warm waters and low-50s a few miles inland.  That’s when you can watch your car thermometer be like 65F in downtown BTV and then lose 2-3F per mile heading to Williston on I-89.

Nice Dendrite.... look at all those 70s for maxes.  Tough way to run an August if looking for high heat.

You're 78.1F average max looks to actually be a shade lower than up here, as MVL looks like 78.3F. 

The mins are the difference, with 52.0F up here vs. 56.1F.... but that's the difference between an ASOS in a field at the valley bottom (between mountain ridges) and a station closer to trees & above the valley bottom.  The afternoon daytime temps up here were the same between us in the means.

Any SNE sites at +2.5 - +3.5 for Augbust? 

BOS looks to have finished at +1.9F (data from yesterday not in there yet)

ORH was +0.5F

Big fail on my forecast but I loved it.   Wish the pool was warmer.   I might take an icy plunge today just to get some September swim time in.

Razzing the Rev aside, it was a fantastic month for outdoor activities.  Highest temp for the month in PWM was 85F, humidity kept largely in check.  Def a relief over Aug 2018.  Enjoy your polar plunge

Finished with our 2nd August never reaching 80 (hit 79 twice) in 22 years, the first being 2008.  Not quite as cool as that month, 62.1 vs 61.5.  Average is 63.8.  Had 5.13" RA, about an inch AN, thanks to the 2.3" in 2.5 hours on 8/21.
