St. John Valley Weather for Monday, March 27 to Sunday, April 3, 2017

Low pressure and an associated warm front will bring some snow to the St. John Valley Monday with around 3 inches expected by Monday evening. Snow continues into the overnight hours before mixing with sleet and freezing rain by early Tuesday with perhaps another inch of accumulation possible along with some areas of fog Monday night into Tuesday morning. Precipitation tapers to snow showers Tuesday evening, which persists through the overnight hours into Wednesday with little additional accumulation anticipated.

Low pressure moves east of the region Wednesday with partly sunny skies developing as high pressure begins to build in behind the departing frontal system. High pressure brings partly sunny to partly cloudy skies to the Valley Thursday through early Saturday. Clouds increase Saturday as a cold front approaches from the northwest bringing a chance for some snow Saturday and snow showers Sunday.
