AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
325 AM EDT FRI MAY 5 2000

ENOUGH LIGHTNING STRIKES IN THE BURLINGTON VICINITY THE PAST THIRTY
MINUTES TO ALMOST CONTINUOUSLY LIGHT UP THE ROOM...BUT DISTRACTING
ENOUGH TO CAUSE ME TO ERRONEOUSLY SEND THE WORK ZONES UNDER THE
FINAL ZONE PIL...MY APOLOGIES TO SURROUNDING OFFICES.

OUR REGION IS CURRENTLY IN SOME RELATIVELY STRONG MID-LEVEL FLOW
BETWEEN A TROUGH OVER CENTRAL QUEBEC PROVINCE AND A RIDGE ANCHORED
OVER THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS.  WITH PLENTY OF MOISTURE IN PLACE
OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...NORTHERN BRANCH SHORTWAVES ARE
FORECAST TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE AREA AND SET OFF OCCASIONAL SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS AS THEY RIPPLE PAST.  WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE OF
HOURS I ANTICIPATE THE CURRENT BATCH OF PRECIP WILL BE MOVING OUT
OF SOUTHERN VERMONT...SO HAVE ONLY MENTIONED MORNING SPRINKLES IN
SOUTH CENTRAL ZONES.  HAVE A HARD TIME SEEING MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES
PERSISTING INTO THE MIDDAY HOURS...SO HAVE WORDED FOR PARTLY SUNNY
ALL LOCATIONS TODAY.  SUNSHINE WILL ALLOW MAX TEMPERATURES TO REACH
ABOUT THE SAME LEVELS AS ON THURSDAY.  ETA SUGGESTING SOME
INSTABILITY MOVING INTO NORTHERN NEW YORK LATER TODAY...ACCOMPANYING
THE NEXT UPSTREAM WAVE.  LOW-LEVEL CONVERGENCE IS FOCUSED OVER THE
ENTIRE FORECAST AREA TONIGHT...WITH ANOTHER FRONTAL BOUNDARY SAGGING
INTO NORTHEASTERN VERMONT BY 12 UTC SATURDAY.  THIS BOUNDARY IS
STRONGER THAN THE SURFACE TROUGH AFFECTING US TONIGHT...SO WOULD NOT
BE SURPRISED TO SEE NOT ONLY ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS...BUT ALSO SOME MORE SIGNIFICANT PRECIP AMOUNTS THAN
WE'RE WITNESSING TONIGHT.  CLOUD COVER WILL KEEP MIN TEMPERATURES
BALMY AGAIN.

ON SATURDAY...THE COLD FRONT REMAINS DRAPED ACROSS NORTHEASTERN
VERMONT WITH NORTHERLY LOW-LEVEL FLOW TO THE NORTH OF THE
BOUNDARY.  THUS HAVE BROKEN OUT ESSEX/CALEDONIA/ORLEANS COUNTIES OF
VERMONT FOR SLIGHTLY COOLER MAX TEMPERATURES SATURDAY...WHICH IS MORE
IN LINE WITH ADJACENT NEW HAMPSHIRE ZONES.  EASTERN VERMONT WILL
REMAIN STABLE WITH THIS BOUNDARY NEARBY...BUT ETA/AVN AGAIN
SUGGESTING ENOUGH INSTABILITY POTENTIAL FOR AT LEAST A MENTION OF
AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS IN NORTHERN NEW YORK AND WESTERN VERMONT.
THESE AREAS COULD ALSO BE EVEN WARMER THAN FRIDAY IF THE BOUNDARY
DOES INDEED GET HUNG UP IN THE GREEN MOUNTAINS.  HAVE PLAYED OVERALL
TEMPERATURE FORECAST CONSERVATIVELY SIMILAR TO SATURDAY AT THIS
JUNCTURE.

3 TO 5 DAY...CONTINUED MODEL DIFFERENCES IN THE EXTENDED PERIOD.
AVN BUILDS RIDGE OVER THE AREA ON SATURDAY NIGHT...THEN FLATTENS THE
UPPER RIDGE AS ANOTHER SHORTWAVE APPROACHES THE REGION.  ALTHOUGH
TIMING OF THESE FEATURES BECOMES MORE UNCERTAIN BY DAY 3...HAVE
OPTED TO ADD A CHANCE OF SHOWERS ALL ZONES ON SUNDAY NONETHELESS.  NO
CHANGES TO DAYS 4/5.

.BTV...NONE.

TO BE LOCATED ACRS THE FA ON FRI...FOCUSING ANY CONVECTION THAT

WITH SFC DEW POINTS IN THE 40S ATTM ACRS THE FA...ANY PCPN SHOULD
ALLOW THINGS TO COOL OFF A LIL MORE THAN THAT THOUGH. RUC INDICATING
CAPES OF 200-600 J/KG TO BE LOCATED ACRS THE FA AHEAD OF THE BOUNDARY

FEW MINOR TWEAKS TO OVRNITE TEMP/WIND FORECAST BASED ON CURRENT
TRENDS. LIKELY POPS LOOK OK FOR THE OVRNITE...BUT CHC OF PCPN ON FRI

CALL TO THE MID-SHIFT THOUGH. ALL OTHER CHANGES TO GOING ZONES
COSMETIC.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
243 PM EDT THU MAY 4 2000

IN THE SHORT TERM...STILL DEALING WITH MOISTURE ADVECTING
NORTHEASTWARD FROM THE EASTERN OHIO VALLEY TOWARD THE FORECAST
AREA.  DEW POINTS IN THE 50S TO LOWER 60S EXIST OVER THIS AREA AND
WOULD EXPECT DEW POINTS ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA TO CLIMB INTO THE
50S LATER TONIGHT.  MEANWHILE...WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING EAST ACROSS JAMES BAY THIS AFTERNOON.
ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT EXTENDS FROM JUST SOUTH OF JAMES BAY WEST-
SOUTHWEST TO THE UPPER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN.  THIS IS THE FRONT
THAT WILL EVENTUALLY MOVE INTO THE AREA TONIGHT AND ENHANCE THE
PRECIPITATION CHANCES.  WILL CONTINUE THE IDEA OF LIKELY
PRECIPITATION FOR TONIGHT WITH CLOUDS INCREASING.  THE INCREASING
CLOUDS COMBINED WITH THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST PRESSURE GRADIENT
REMAINING FAIRLY STRONG...SHOULD HELP TO KEEP MINIMUM TEMPERATURES
GENERALLY IN THE 50S.

ON FRIDAY...FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE FORECAST AREA EARLY IN THE
DAY. AS A MATTER OF FACT...ITS EAST AND SOUTHEAST OF THE FORECAST
AREA BY MIDDAY.  FLOW ALOFT TURNS TO A MORE NORTHWEST DIRECTION.
STRONGEST WINDS ALOFT REMAIN NORTH OF THE BORDER AND LIMITED
COOLING ALOFT WILL KEEP STEEP LAPSE RATES CONFINED TO THE LOWER
LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE.  DEW POINTS STILL REMAIN IN THE 50S AND
WITH SOME BREAKS OF SUN...TEMPERATURES SHOULD AT LEAST GET INTO THE
LOWER 70S.  MODIFYING FORECAST SOUNDINGS VIA SHARP YIELD AFTERNOON
INSTABILITY VALUES OF 200-400 J/KG AND LIFTED INDEX VALUES OF ZERO
TO MINUS TWO.  DESPITE SOME INSTABILITY...COMPOSITE ANALYSIS FOR
MIDDAY ON FRIDAY SHOWS LACK OF ANY WELL DEFINED FORCING MECHANISMS.
THIS IN TURN SHOULD LIMIT THE POTENTIAL FOR ANY THUNDERSTORMS.  SO
WILL PRETTY MUCH FOLLOW THE IDEA FROM THE PREVIOUS SHIFT AND MENTION
A CHANCE OF SHOWERS...BUT REMOVE ANY MENTION OF THUNDERSTORMS.
ALSO FEEL ANY SHOWERS WILL BE PRIMARILY IN THE AFTERNOON AS THE
HIGHER TERRAIN MAY BE THE ONLY FORCING MECHANISM AVAILABLE TO
ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL FOR PRECIPITATION.  WITH THE CLOUD COVER...
HIGH TEMPERATURES SHOULD GENERALLY BE IN THE 70 TO 75 DEGREE RANGE.

ONE OTHER ELEMENT THAT MAY ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL FOR ANY SHOWERS ON
FRIDAY IS THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN THAT IS DEVELOPING.  AS MENTIONED
EARLIER...FLOW ALOFT BECOMES MORE WEST-NORTHWEST WITH TIME TONIGHT
AND ON INTO FRIDAY.  WELL DEFINED WARM FRONT WILL EXIST OVER THE
NORTHERN GREAT LAKES DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.  STRONG WARM AIR
ADVECTION ALONG AND NORTH OF THIS FRONT SHOULD HELP TO DEVELOP
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE US/CANADIAN BORDER NORTH OF THE
GREAT LAKES LATE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY MORNING.  WITH THE WEST TO
NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT...THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE EAST-
SOUTHEAST TOWARD THE FORECAST AREA.  THIS IS ESSENTIALLY MORE OF A
SUMMERTIME PATTERN WITH LATE NIGHT MCS DEVELOPMENT OVER THE GREAT
LAKES AND THEN ROLL SOUTHEAST OVER THE RIDGE AND INTO THE
FORECAST AREA.  I DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY MCS DEVELOPMENT...BUT THE
IDEA THAT PRECIPITATION WILL FORM NORTH OF THE WARM FRONT AND
MOVE INTO OUR AREA SEEMS REASONABLE TO WARRANT A THREAT OF
PRECIPITATION.  SO IF THIS OCCURS...THEN THE BETTER CHANCES OF
SHOWERS OVER THE FORECAST AREA WOULD BE FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
THUS WILL CONTINUE TO MENTION THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR FRIDAY NIGHT
AS WELL. COORDINATION WITH ALBANY YIELDS VERY GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE
THREAT OF PRECIPITATION TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT.

THE RIDGE ALOFT WILL AMPLIFY ON SATURDAY AND THIS WILL TAKE THE
WARM FRONT NORTHEASTWARD INTO CANADA.  OTHER THAN SOME CLOUDS IN THE
MORNING...PLENTY OF SUN SHOULD DEVELOP.  FORECAST AREA REMAINS IN
THE WEST TO NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT...BUT AXIS OF WARMEST 850 MB
TEMPERATURES IS WORKING ITS WAY UP AND OVER THE RIDGE.  THUS +14C OR
WARMER AIR AT 850 MB WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA SATURDAY FROM THE
NORTHERN GREAT LAKES.  THUS TEMPERATURES SHOULD CLIMB INTO THE 70S
WITH SOME AREAS APPROACHING THE 80 DEGREE MARK.

UPPER RIDGE AXIS MOVES SLOWLY EAST ON SUNDAY AND THIS APPEARS TO BE
THE WARMEST DAY OF THE WEEKEND.  MANY AREAS SHOULD BE APPROACHING
THE 80 DEGREE MARK WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE.

FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY...LOOKS LIKE THE NEXT FRONT MOVES INTO THE
FORECAST AREA ON MONDAY AND WILL CONTINUE IDEA OF A CHANCE OF
SHOWERS.  ON TUESDAY...TIMING WILL BE THE KEY AS TO WHEN THE WARM
FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE GREAT LAKES
MOVES FAR ENOUGH EAST TO ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL FOR PRECIPITATION.
WILL HOLD OFF MENTION OF ANY SHOWERS FOR NOW AND GO WITH INCREASING
CLOUDS.

WORK ZONES IN ALBADMBTV BY 300 PM

EVENSON

.BTV...NONE.

                    STUDENT METEOROLOGIST: Kevin Thomas_
       _** The latest forecast for Northeast & North Central Vermont**
       ** The area bounded by Waterbury, St. Johnsbury, and Newport**_


   _
   Overnight: Clouds will continue to increase throughout the Northeast
   Kingdom. A chance of rain showers and or a risk of a thunderstorm can
   not be ruled out for the overnight hours. Temperatures will stay warm
   with lows only reaching 53 in Lyndonville to 51 in West Burke.

   Friday: A mix of sun and clouds will start the morning off followed by
   mainly cloudy skies. In the afternoon there is a good chance of some
   scattered rain showers. High temperatures will reach around 71 degrees
   with a northwesterly wind around 10 mph.

   Friday Night: A good night to get outside and enjoy the mild evening.
   There is a chance of some showers here and there. Low temperatures
   will be dropping to near 52 degrees.

   Saturday: The morning will start off partly cloudy but will be
   followed by sun filled skies in the afternoon. Once again very warm
   temperatures will persist with highs reaching the upper 70's with
   night time lows in the mid 50's

                             Extended Forecast

   Sunday: A great day is in store for the Northeast Kingdom with mostly
   sunny skies. Temperatures will be toping out just near 78 degrees with
   lows in the lower 50's.

   Monday: Well all good things must come to an end with cloudy skies a
   chance of showers for the Kingdom. Temperatures will be cooling off
   with highs only approaching the upper 60's and low's in the mid 40's..

   Tuesday: The sun returns with a few clouds in the area. High temps
   will only approach the upper 50's with lows near the low 40's.

                            Forecast Discussion


   It was a wonderful day with very warm temperatures. As we progress
   into the early hours of Friday morning a cold front will drop down out
   of Canada. Once this cold front pushes near us there is a chance of
   some showers and or a thunderstorm cannot be ruled out. We are going
   to be in a mixed pattern where we will have some periods of sun and
   then some scattered rain showers for Friday afternoon. Otherwise
   conditions will improve for Saturday and into Sunday. Temperatures
   both days will be climbing the hill per say into the upper 70's. It is
   possible that Sunday could be the warmest day of the year so far. As
   the new work week comes around temps will be cooling down some and
   another chance of rain will be moving in on Monday. For all Lyndon
   State College students, good luck with all your finals next week and
   have a great summer!
