AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
210 AM EDT SUN OCT 20 2002

FORECAST CONCERNS ARE TEMPS AND CHANCES FOR PRECIP THROUGH NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS.

WATER VAPOR CONTINUES TO SHOW MID/UPPER LVL TROF DEVELOPING AS WEAK
S/W'S AND JET COUPLETS ROTATE THROUGH CWA. ONE JET MAX ACRS SOUTHERN
NY IS QUICKLY LIFTING NE AS ANOTHER S/W AND ASSOCIATED JET MAX DROPS
SOUTH ACRS THE GREAT LAKES. THIS ELONGATED VORT MAX IS PROVIDING
ENOUGH LIFT ALONG SFC COLD FRNT TO PRODUCE -RW OVER THE
CHAMPLAIN/ST LAWRENCE VALLEYS. SFC TEMPS AHEAD OF FRNT CONTINUE IN
THE UPPER 40S/LOWER 50S WITH MID TO UPPER 30S BEHIND FRNT OVER
SOUTHERN CANADA. BOTH AVN/ETA INITIALIZED WELL WITH
POSITION/STRENGTH OF JET MAXES ACRS NE CONUS AND ASSOCIATED SFC
FEATURES. ALSO...BASED ON RAOB DATA THE ETA INITIALIZED SLIGHTLY
BETTER WITH LLVL TEMPS/HGHT FIELDS ACRS NE CONUS AND UPPER MISS
VALLEY.

TODAY-TONIGHT...MID/UPPER LVL TROF CONTINUES ACRS CENTRAL CANADA
WITH WEAK ELONGATED S/W ENERGY ROTATING THROUGH CWA. BEST SYNOPTIC
FORCING ASSOCIATED RRQ OF JET AND VORT MAX WL STAY NORTH OF CWA.
HOWEVER...MESOSCALE FORCING ASSOCIATED WITH UPSLOPE FLOW ACRS THE
WESTERN SLOPES OF THE ADIRONDACK/GREEN MTNS WL ENHANCE LLVL LIFT.
ALSO...PLENTY OF LEFTOVER 1000-850MB MOISTURE...WHICH WL BE ENHANCED
BY WESTERLY WIND COMPONENT CROSSING OVER LK ONTARIO. I WL MENTION SCT
POPS ACRS MTNS WITH SPRINKLES/FLURRIES OVER VALLEY LOCATIONS. LLVL
THICKNESS VALUES/PROGGED 850MB TEMPS SUGGEST SNOW OVER MTNS WITH A
MIX POSSIBLE IN VALLEYS. NO MAJOR PROBLEMS EXPECTED WITH ONLY LIGHT
QPF. TONIGHT...WEAK SFC TROF DEVELOPS ACRS LK ONTARIO AND MOVES INTO
NORTHERN NY BY MONDAY MORNING. BEST JET DYNAMICS/VORTICITY STAYS
NORTH OF CWA AND WITH LIMITED FORCING/MOISTURE I WL MENTION SCT
POPS WESTERN CWA.

MONDAY-TUESDAY...NW FLOW CONTINUES ACRS CWA AND DRIER AIR WL ADVECT
INTO THE REGION. HOWEVER...I WL CONTINUE TO MENTION PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES ACRS HIGHER ELEVATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH UPSLOPE SFC FLOW. 850MB
TEMPS NEAR -6C SUGGEST HIGHS ONLY IN THE LOWER TO MID 40S. A WEAK
VORT MAX MONDAY NITE MAY PROVIDE ENOUGH LIFT TO INCREASE CLOUDS ACRS
THE CENTRAL/WESTERN CWA. THIS WL PREVENT TEMPS FROM DROPPING INTO THE
TEENS ACRS THE ADIRONDACKS. TUESDAY...ANOTHER ELONGATED VORT MAX
MOVES ACRS THE CWA IN THE FLOW ALOFT. ONCE AGAIN MID LVL MOISTURE
INCREASES BUT WITH LIMITED LIFT/DYNAMICS WL KEEP FCST DRY. TEMPS WL
CONTINUE TO BE BELOW NORMAL.

EXTENDED...MID/UPPER LVL TROF CONTINUES ACRS EASTERN CONUS WITH
EMBEDDED SHORT WAVES/JET ENERGY PASSING THROUGH EVERY COUPLE OF
DAYS. THURSDAY...SFC LOW PRES MOVES FROM UPPER MISS VALLEY INTO
SOUTHERN CANADA WITH TRAILING COLD FRNT ACRS THE MID WEST. THIS
TRACK SUGGEST WAA DEVELOPING ACRS REGION THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY WITH
TEMPS NEAR NORMAL. ALSO...850MB TEMPS/LLVL THICKNESS VALUES INDICATE
TEMPS NEAR NORMAL FOR THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY. I WL CONTINUE TO MENTION
-RW FOR FRIDAY ASSOCIATED WITH SFC CONVERGENCE/MID LVL MOISTURE AND
FA PROGGED TO BE UNDER LFQ OF 250MB JET. SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY WEAK
CAA DEVELOPS BEHIND SFC FRNT WITH BELOW NORMAL TEMPS EXPECTED. OUR
NEXT CHANCE FOR PRECIP WL BE ASSOCIATED WITH SHORT WAVE/SFC LOW PRES
MOVING THROUGH THE OHIO VALLEY IN THE MID ATLANTIC LATE SUNDAY INTO
MONDAY.

.BTV...NONE.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
143 PM EDT SAT OCT 19 2002

CURRENTLY...1000 HPA SFC LOW AND ASSOCIATED VORTICITY PASSING JUST
NORTH OF AREA NEAR CYMX. LOTS OF LOW AND MID-LEVEL ENERGY TRAVERSING
AREA IN FORM OF 30-40KT LL JET. MEAN BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW FROM ABOUT
230 DEGREES...AND AS A RESULT SIGNIFICANT UPSLOPE/DOWNSLOPE
CONDITIONS ONGOING. WESTERN SLOPES OF ADIRONDACKS TO RECEIVE AS MUCH
AS 0.75" QPF WHEN ALL SAID AND DONE...WITH CHAMPLAIN VALLEY
STRUGGLING TO SEE MAYBE A QUARTER INCH. BREEZY TO WINDY CONDITIONS
ALSO PREVALENT...WITH MIXING TO ABOUT 1K FEET ALLOWING GUSTS AS HIGH
AS 40 MPH TO BE OBSERVED...MOST NOTABLY ACROSS OPEN WATERS OF THE
LAKE AND IN THE ISLANDS.

TONIGHT AND SUNDAY...SYSTEM QUICKLY EXITS TO NE TONIGHT...BUT
RESIDUAL MOISTURE AND SECONDARY WIND SHIFT/SFC TROF CROSS AREA AFTER
MIDNIGHT WITH SPOTTY LIGHT PRECIP. MEAN 925-850 HPA NW FLOW OF 25 TO
30 KT ARGUES FOR HIGHER POPS IN OROGRAPHIC FAVORED AREAS. IN
FACT...BUFKIT PROFILES SUGGEST QPF OF AN ADDITIONAL QUARTER INCH
QUITE POSSIBLE ACROSS HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE NORTHERN GREEN MTN
SPINE. GUIDANCE HAS SLOWED ARRIVAL OF COLDER AIR HOWEVER...WITH
1000-850 HPA THICKNESS PROFILES ONLY MARGINALLY FAVORABLE FOR FROZEN
PRECIP UNTIL PASSAGE OF SFC TROF...SOMETIME AFTER 06Z. TEMPERATURES
CONTINUE ON THE COOL SIDE SUNDAY. LINGERING 925-850 HPA MOISTURE AND
RELATIVELY STEEP LL LAPSE RATES WILL ALLOW FOR CLOUDS TO HANG TOUGH.
SOME VERY LIGHT PRECIP STILL NOTED FROM ETA/GFS ENSEMBLES...BUT WILL
DISCOUNT FOR NOW AS MOISTURE DEPTH LESSENS AND FORCING EXITS EAST.

SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY...ANOTHER IN A SERIES OF SHORTWAVES TO
AFFECT AREA OVERNIGHT BUT WITH LITTLE FANFARE. 850 HPA SHORTWAVE
DAMPENS OUT AS IT APPROACHES AREA. SOME WEAK WAA NOTED...BUT
MOISTURE IS LIMITED WITH THIS SYSTEM. AIR SHOULD BE COLD ENOUGH FOR
MANY AREAS TO SEE THEIR FIRST WET FLAKES OF THE YEAR...BUT GUIDANCE
HAS SLOWED THIS FEATURE SOMEWHAT...AFFECTING N NY LATE SUNDAY
NIGHT...AND VERMONT BY MONDAY MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON. ALL IN ALL
ONLY SCANTY LIGHT PRECIP AT BEST...AND WILL NOT GET CARRIED AWAY
WITH THIS.

AFTERWARDS...AREA TO REMAIN DIRECTLY UNDERNEATH FAST MID AND UPPER
LEVEL FLOW TO SOUTH OF DEEP POLAR VORTEX/LW TROUGHINESS THROUGH
MID-WEEK. MAINLY DRY AND COOL WEATHER TO AFFECT AREA SAVE PERHAPS A
FEW LAKE ONTARIO SHOWER BANDS ACROSS SOUTHERN ADIRONDACKS TUE/WED
TIME FRAME. CORE OF COLDEST AIR OVER AREA DURING THIS PERIOD AS
WELL...WITH HIGH TEMPS SOME 10-12 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. LATEST LONG
RANGE ENSEMBLES NOW SUGGEST PLAINS SYSTEM EJECTING EAST TOWARDS AREA
BY LATE IN THE WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND...WITH WAA PATTERN DEVELOPING
AND NEXT SIGNIFICANT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION. AT THIS TIME IT
APPEARS MOST OF THIS WILL FALL IN THE LIQUID FORM.
