AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
302 AM EST WED MAR 14 2001

SHORTWAVE WHICH BROUGHT SNOW AND MIXED PRECIPITATION TO THE FORECAST
AREA LAST NIGHT HAS LIFTED NORTH OF THE REGION.  FORECAST AREA NOW
REMAINS IN MOIST WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT AND THIS SHOULD PERSIST FOR
MUCH OF THE DAY.  WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS ANOTHER SHORTWAVE
TROUGH...NOW ENTERING WESTERN NEW YORK...WHICH WILL EVENTUALLY MOVE
ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THIS MORNING.  THIS WILL ENHANCE THE
POTENTIAL FOR SNOW SHOWERS AND GOING FORECAST OF SNOW SHOWERS
LIKELY LOOKS REAL GOOD.  ALREADY SEEING PLENTY OF ACTIVITY ACROSS
CENTRAL NEW YORK THAT WILL PROGRESS INTO THE NORTH COUNTRY THIS
MORNING.  LOW LEVEL LAPSE RATES WILL BE STEEP AND THIS WILL HELP TO
ENHANCE THE CONVECTIVE POTENTIAL.  ANY SNOW ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD
GENERALLY BE IN THE 1 TO 2 INCH RANGE.  MAX TEMPERATURES TODAY
SHOULD BE IN THE 30 TO 35 DEGREE RANGE AND AGREE WITH PREVIOUS
FORECAST IN BLUSTERY CONDITIONS WITH SOUTHWEST PRESSURE GRADIENT.

WITH DYNAMICS REMOVED FROM THE AREA TONIGHT AND LOW LEVEL LAPSE
RATES GRADUALLY STABILIZING...ANY LINGERING SNOW SHOWERS WILL BE
EARLY IN THE TONIGHT PERIOD.  SKIES WILL THEN BECOME PARTLY
CLOUDY.  NOT MUCH DRYING IN THE WEST TO NORTHWEST FLOW AND DEW
POINTS ONLY FALL INTO THE LOWER 20S.  SO MINIMUM TEMPERATURES SHOULD
NOT FALL BELOW 20 TONIGHT.  PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL REMAIN FROM THE
SOUTHWEST...BUT SHOULD WEAKEN WITH TIME.

ON THURSDAY...UPPER LOW BECOMES ANCHORED JUST NORTH OF NEW
BRUNSWICK AND FLOW ALOFT PERSISTS FROM THE WEST.  IT APPEARS
FORECAST AREA SHOULD BE IN BETWEEN SYSTEMS DURING THE DAY/EVENING
WITH UPPER LOW NORTH OF NEW BRUNSWICK AND SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING
TOWARD THE MID ATLANTIC STATES. PARTLY SUNNY SKIES WILL BE THE RULE
WITH A GRADUAL WARMING TREND. MAX TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE AROUND THE
40 DEGREE MARK...40 TO 45 SOUTH CENTRAL VERMONT...AND GOING FORECAST
HAS THIS COVERED WELL.

THE PERSISTENT UPPER LOW NORTH OF NEW BRUNSWICK WILL LIMIT THE
NORTHERN EXTENT OF THE PRECIPITATION SHIELD TO OUR SOUTH.  SYSTEM TO
OUR SOUTH...WHICH IS CURRENTLY MOVING INTO TEXAS...WILL BE A WELL
DEFINED SYSTEM WITH STRONG FRONTOGENESIS HELPING TO ENHANCE
PRECIPITATION AND DEEP MOISTURE TO WORK WITH.  TRENDS SUGGEST NEXT
LARGE UPSTREAM UPPER TROUGH WILL DIG INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS/LOWER
MISSISSIPPI AND WILL BE SLOWER TO MAKE THE TURN NORTHEAST.  THIS
SUGGESTS MAIN PRECIPITATION THREAT MAY HOLD OFF UNTIL FRIDAY.  WILL
REMOVE MENTION OF PRECIPITATION FOR LATE THURSDAY NIGHT...BUT KEEP
MENTION OF MAIN PRECIPITATION EVENT FOR FRIDAY.  THIS SYSTEM LOOKS
LIKE IT WILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING IN IT AND GOING
FORECAST HAS THIS COVERED WELL.  PRECIPITATION EVENT SHOULD LAST
INTO SATURDAY WITH PRECIPITATION MAINLY BEING SNOW AT THAT POINT.
SNOW SHOULD THEN TAPER TO SNOW SHOWERS ON BACK SIDE OF UPPER TROUGH
SUNDAY WITH DRY WEATHER EXPECTED FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY.  GOING
FORECAST HAS THIS COVERED WELL AND SEE NO NEED FOR CHANGES AT THIS
TIME.

BAND OF RAIN SHOWERS AHEAD OF SHRTWV ACROSS NY STATE ATTM.  WILL
MENTION RAIN SHOWERS EARLY...THEN SCT SNOW SHOWERS OVERNIGHT AS
CODER AIR WORKS IN ALOFT OVERNIGHT.  SOME TEMPS NEAR FREEZING MARK
ACROSS NE VT ATTM...SO HAVE MENTIONED SOME LOCAL POCKETS OF
FREEZING RAIN EARLY TONIGHT.  SKIES TO REMAIN MOSTLY CLOUDY ON WED
WITH SNOW SHOWERS LIKELY...BUT NOT MUCH ACCUMULATION EXPECTED.  A
CHC OF SNOW SHOWERS EARLY WED NIGHT THEN BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY.
A WEAK RIDGE OF HIGH PRES TO BE OVER THE FCST AREA TO GIVE US A
BRIEF BREAK BEFORE THE NEXT SYSTEM COMES IN LATE THU NIGHT.

EXTENDED...DEEPENING LOW PRES AREA TO MOVE INTO THE WESTERN GRTLKS
ON THU WITH SECONDARY LOW PRES AREA TO FORM OFF THE NEW JERSEY
COAST EARLY FRI.  THIS COULD HAVE THE EFFECT TO KEEP THE COLDER
AIR NEAR THE SURFACE LONGER ON FRI.  THICKNESS VALUES LATE THU
NIGHT ARE ABOVE 540...SO LOOKS LIKE MIXED PRECIP STRAING OVER FCST
AREA LATE THU NIGHT AND CONTINUING INTO FRI.  ON FRI...THE
SECONDARY LOW WILL MOVE TO THE CENTRAL MAINE COAST BY EARLY SAT
MORNING.  CLOSED UPR LOW OVER THE GREAT LAKES TO MOVE EAST ON FRI...
WITH COLDER AIR MOVG IN ALOFT OVER FCST AREA.  AM EXPECTING ANY
MIXED PRECIP TO CHANGE BACK TO ALL SNOW BY LATE FRI AND CONTINUE
INTO FRI NIGHT.  THERE COULD BE A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF SNOW LATE
FRI INTO FRI NIGHT...AS SECONDARY LOW PRES AREA WILL ONLY MOVE
SLOWLY NEWD.  ALOT TO CONSIDER...SO STAY TUNED ON THIS ONE...AS A
LOT CAN CHANGE FROM MODEL RUN TO MODEL RUN.  HAVE ALSO LOWERED
TEMPS IN DAYS 3 THRU 5 EXTENDED FCST FROM WHAT MODEL GUIDANCE IS
GIVING US.

                      11:00PN, Tuesday March 13, 2001
                      STUDENT METEOROLOGIST: Tim Lopes

                            Forecast Discussion

   Spring is only a couple of weeks away, and it will tease us over the
   next few days. First, we can expect light snow across the region
   overnight tonight, accumulation to an inch or two in most towns.
   Higher elevation towns, including Sutton and Sheffield, might see as
   much as three or four inches by tomorrow morning. Light flurries will
   continue through the day on Wednesday in response to an upper level
   system moving in from the Great Lakes. However, by Thursday, our skies
   will clear, and temperatures will moderate nicely. Some towns will see
   high temperatures almost ten degrees above normal on Thursday!
   However, we'll be reminded, once again, that it is still winter, as
   another system spreads snow, sleet, and freezing rain into the area
   late Thursday night and Friday. Expect this back-and-forth battle to
   continue over the next few weeks, until Spring finally wins out, and
   the warmer temperatures remain here for good!
