UPDATED ZONES ISSUED.  RAISED POPS 10 PERCENT IN NORTHERN NY BASED
ON LATEST OBS, CANADIAN RADAR, SATL, AND SHORT RANGE MODELS.  ALL
SHOW INCREASING RISK OF LIGHT SNOW FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE NIGHT.
EXPECTAMOUNTS TO REMAIN AN INCH OR LESS.  MAINTAINED CHANCE POPS
FOR VT ZONES SINCE SFC DWPTS STILL SHOWING DRIER LOW LVL AIR.
EXTENSIVE CLOUDS HAVE ARRESTED ANY TEMPERATURE FALL AND INDICATED
TEMPS NOW STEADY AT THEIR PRESENT LEVELS THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT
PERIOD.

PREVIOUS AFD, ISSUED AT 4 PM, FOLLOWS....


THE LAST OF THE COLD FOR A WHILE.

POLAR VORTEX LIFTING OUT TO BE REPLACE BY RIDGING EARLY NEXT WEEK.
VARIOUS MODELS AND ENSEMBLE IN DECENT AGREEMENT.

WARM FRONTAL CLOUDS/PRECIP IN CANADA SLIDING SOUTHEAST ON NORTHWEST
FLOW ALOFT. HAVE GONE ABOVE GUIDANCE POPS LATE TONIGHT/EARLY
TOMORROW MORNING WITH A GOOD CHANCE OF LIGHT SNOW/FLURRIES. MAYBE AN
INCH OR SO IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN. CLOUD WILL PUT A CAP TO THE TEMPS
WITH EARLY EVENING MIN TEMPERATURES IN THE TEENS FROM BTV WEST TO

LOOK FOR DECOUPLING EAST OF THE GREENS WITH LOWER TEMPS THERE AND
STEADY OR SLIGHTLY FALLING TEMPS ELSEWHERE.

ON SUNDAY RIDGING AND WSW FLOW SHOULD BRING TEMPS TO 50 MOST
LOCATIONS. IT COULD BE WARMER AS MODELS HAVE A TOUCH TIME WITH WARM
AIR MOVING OVER SNOW COVER, RESULTING IN A MUCH TOO COLD BOUNDARY
LAYER AS EVIDENT IN MODEL SOUNDINGS.


SUNDAY NIGHT/MONDAY...BACKDOOR COLD FRONT, COLDER ON ETA AND SRN
STREAM LOW PRESSURE WITH ADDITIONAL MOISTURE TO BRING A CHANCE OF

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

   Tonight:  The sun will disappear behind the clouds starting early this
   evening.  Winds  will  be light from the west. There is a chance for a
   trace  of  snow  flurries  late  tonight. Lows will drop down into the
   single digits to near 10 degrees above zero.

   Saturday:  The  day will have a cloudy beginning, but skies will start
   to  clear  in the afternoon. Any snow flurries will end by noon. Winds
   will be light from the southwest. Temperatures will reach into the low
   to mid 30's.

   Saturday  Night: Partly cloudy skies will prevail. Light winds will be
   from  the  west at 5 to 10 mph. Lows will be in the upper teens to low
   20's.

   Sunday:  With  a  high  pressure system controlling our area, and warm
   temperatures,  the  day will seem like spring is here. Southerly winds
   will  be  pumping  warm  air into the region, raising the temperatures
   into  the  upper  40's, with some areas in southern VT, hitting the 50
   degree  mark.  There  will  be  periods  of  sunshine through the day.
   Overnight lows will be in the upper 20's in areas like Burke Hollow or
   Island Pond, and low 30's elsewhere.

                             Extended Forecast

   Monday:  Mostly  cloudy  throughout  the  day with breaks of sunshine.
   Highs  will  be in the mid 40's. Overnight lows will fall into the low
   20's.

   Tuesday: Much like Monday, it will be another cloudy day with highs in
   the mid 40's and lows in the lower 20's.

   Wednesday:  Expect mild temperatures through the day with highs in the
   upper  40's.  Mostly  cloudy  skies, with possible rain showers in the
   afternoon. Lows will only drop into the mid 30's.

                            Forecast Discussion

   This  may have been the last of the cold temperatures for this winter,
   as  an  artic  air  mass is passing through the Northeast. Much milder
   conditions  will  begin  on  Saturday  with  temperatures  at or above
   average,  which for this time of year is near 37 degrees. This creates
   good  news the snow pack will be melting. No significant precipitation
   is expected for the weekend. Although, some rain will make it into our
   region  in  the  middle  part of the week. So, it looks like we may be
   saying goodbye to Winter and are welcoming Spring.
