540 AM EST THU FEB 20 2003

RATHER QUIET WX THE NEXT 2 DAYS AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRES BUILDS INTO
THE REGION...WITH ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS.

HOWEVER...ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM POISED TO MOVE NE FROM THE TENNESSEE
VLY ON SATURDAY. 00Z MODELS ARE NOW FASTER IN BRINGING IN PRECIP. BY
SATURDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS THE REGION...WITH SNOW LIKELY. HOWEVER...
MODELS DIFFER ON THE TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM WITH THE ETA FURTHER NORTH
AND WEST WITH THIS SYSTEM...WHILE THE GFS IS FURTHER SOUTH WITH THIS
SYSTEM. GIVEN THESE DIFFERENCES...WILL MENTION A MIXTURE OF SNOW...
SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY...THEN CHANGING
BACK TO ALL SNOW ON SUNDAY AS THE COLDER AIR RETURNS. NCEP PREFERS
THE ETA MODEL WHICH IS FURTHER NORTH WITH THIS SYSTEM. HOWEVER...
GIVEN THE COLD AIR OVER QUEBEC SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY...DO NOT
FEEL THAT THE ETA LOW POSITION WILL BE FURTHER TO THE NORTH...AND
THAT THE GFS MODEL MAY HAVE THE RIGHT IDEA IN A FURTHER SOUTH TRACK
WIT THE SFC LOW. EVEN THE GFS MODEL SUSGGEST SOME MIX WITH SLEET AND
FREEZING RAIN ACROSS PARTS OF THE REGION AS 1000-500 MB THICKNESS
VALUES RISE ABOVE 5400 M. BASICALLY...PRECIP TYPE FOR SATURDAY
NIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY RESTS ON TRACK OF THE SFC LOW. A RATHER LOW
CONFIDENCE FCST GIVEN THAT MODELS HAVE FLIP FLOPPED WITH THEIR
VARIOUS SOLUTIONS WITH THIS SYSTEM.

HAVE GONE WITH LIKELY POPS FOR SATURDAY...AND RAISED POPS TO
CATEGORICAL FOR SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY.

EXTENDED...00Z GFS RUN NOW FASTER IN BRINGING IN SNOW TO THE
REGION LATE MONDAY AND CONTINUING INTO MONDAY NIGHT...SO HAVE
UPDATED THE FCST TO ACCOUNT FOR THIS.

.BTV...NONE.

COLD FRONT CONTINUES TO BECOME MORE DIFFUSE WITH TIME OVER THE
NORTHEAST.  AS A RESULT...THREAT FOR ANY FLURRIES HAS ALL BUT ENDED
TONIGHT.  THUS WILL REMOVE FROM THE FORECAST.  STILL PLENTY OF CLOUD
COVER AND BASED ON SATELLITE TRENDS...MORE SIGNIFICANT CLEARING
SHOULD NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL DAYBREAK.  LIKE THE IDEA OF BECOMING
PARTLY CLOUDY TOWARD MORNING IN THE FORECAST AND WILL LEAVE AS IS.
WITH THE CLOUDS AND SOME GRADIENT CONTINUING OVERNIGHT...
TEMPERATURES WILL HAVE A HARD TIME FALLING SIGNIFICANTLY.  THE HIGH
PRESSURE THAT IS BUILDING IN BEHIND THE COLD FRONT HAS ORIGINS IN
THE CENTRAL PART OF THE COUNTRY...SO NO COLD PUSH IS EXPECTED.  DEW
POINTS SHOULD REMAIN IN THE 20S...SO WILL ADJUST THE OVERNIGHT LOWS
TO REFLECT THIS.  WILL MENTION LOWS IN THE 20S FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND
MID 20S TO THE LOWER 30S FOR THE LARGER VALLEYS.  NO CHANGES NEEDED
TO THE LATER PERIODS.

UPDATED ZONES ALREADY SENT.
