AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
315 AM EDT SAT MAY 8 2004

.DISCUSSION...

COLD NIGHT OUT THERE AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SLIDES ACROSS THE
REGION. CALM WINDS AND CLEAR SKIES LETTING TEMPS RADIATE
AWAY...DOWN TO 20 AT KSLK...BUT MOST OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE 30S
NOW. WINDS OVER LAKE CHAMPLAIN KEEPING BOUNDARY LAYER MIXED
OUT..WITH COLCHESTER REEF AT 43 DEGREES. VERY DRY AIRMASS...WITH
DEWPOINT TEMPS IN THE TEENS TO LOWER 20S WILL COME INTO PLAY LATER
IN THE DAY.

THIS AFTERNOON...AS THE HIGH SHIFTS EAST...WE GET SOME WEAK RETURN
FLOW FROM THE SOUTH AT THE SURFACE. BACKED OFF CHCS FOR PRECIP THIS
AFTERNOON BASED ON VERY DRY AIR OVER THE REGION...WILL TAKE QUITE A
WHILE FOR MOISTURE TO INCREASE ENOUGH FOR ANY RAINFALL TO REACH THE
GROUND. EXPECT INCREASING...THEN LOWERING...CLOUDS FROM WEST TO
EAST LATER IN THE DAY.

WEATHER PATTERN OVER NEXT FEW DAYS SHOWS LITTLE CHANGE FROM
PREVIOUS FEW NIGHTS. WEST/NW FLOW ALOFT STEERS CONVECTIVELY INDUCED
VORT MAXES AND REMNANTS OF MCS'S FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS...MAKING
THEM JUST SKIRT THE SRN EDGE OF BTV'S FORECAST AREA. MEANWHILE AT
THE SURFACE...A FRONT VACILLATES BACK AND FORTH AS A COLD FRONT
TONIGHT ASSOCIATED WITH WEAK SHORTWAVES...THEN A WARMFNT MONDAY AS
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SHIFTS EAST. CHANCES FOR SHOWERS TONIGHT AND
AGAIN SUNDAY NIGHT TIED TO VORTMAXES/MCS REMNANTS...WITH BEST
CHANCES TO SOUTH...AND TAPERING OFF TO NORTH.

MORE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MODELS ON MONDAY...HAVING DIFFICULTY
RESOLVING DETAILS IN THIS FAST WESTERLY FLOW. ETA IS SIGNIFICANTLY
FASTER BRINGING PRECIP IN TO REGION ON MONDAY WELL AHEAD OF SURFACE
TROUGH. HELD OFF TIL LATER ON...LEANING TOWARD SLOWER GFS WHERE
PRECIP MORE TIED TO SURFACE TROUGH.

TREND FOR RISING HEIGHTS BY MID-LATE NEXT WEEK STILL SUPPORT WARMING
TEMPERATURES.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
1013 PM EDT FRI MAY 7 2004

.DISCUSSION...
SATELLITE TRENDS SHOW JUST A FEW CIRRUS CLOUDS MOVING ACROSS THE
FORECAST AREA.  SURFACE OBSERVATIONS SHOW WINDS ARE TAPERING OFF AS
FORECAST...SO THE MOSTLY CLEAR FORECAST WITH DIMINISHING WINDS LOOKS
GOOD.  THIS SCENARIO WILL ALLOW FOR OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE 20S WITH
SOME TEENS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND THIS IS ALSO COVERED WELL IN THE
GOING FORECAST.  THUS NO UPDATES ARE NEEDED AT THIS TIME.

.PREV DISCUSSION FROM 345 PM...

SHORT TERM: CDFNT CONTINUES TO PUSH SOUTH INTO MID ATLC RGN...AND
IT WL BE SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE IT COMPLETES THE RETURN TRIP NORTH

THRU SATURDAY AS IT SLIDES SOUTHEAST ACRS FA LATER TONITE/SAT
AM...AND THEN MOVES SOUTH OF NEW ENGLAND BY SAT EVENING.
WNW FLOW ALOFT WILL PRESIST THRU WEEKEND...WHILE A SERIES OF WEAK
DISTURBANCES MOVE RAPIDLY EAST FROM GRTLKS/OH VLY. THIS WILL BRING
CHC OF SHWRS AT TIMES TO RGN LATER SAT THRU MONDAY. ALTHO...MUCH OF
TIME EXPECTED TO RMN DRY AS MUCH OF THE SUPPORT AND PCPN ASSOCD WITH
THESE DISTURBANCES IS EXPECTED TO AFFECT AREAS SOUTH OF FA.

TON/SAT: COOLER AND DRIER AIR CONTINUES TO FILTER INTO FA THIS PM.
CLDS DISSIPATING WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE DRIER AIR. DWPTS UPSTREAM
ACRS SRN CANADA ARE GENERALLY IN THE TEENS. WNDS WILL BE A FACTOR
FOR FIRST PART OF TONITE...BUT EXPECT THEM TO DIMINISH AS HIGH
APRCHS AND GRADIENT SLACKENS. MAX RADIATIONAL COOLING LATER TONITE
WITH CLR SKIES AND LIGHT WNDS. NEAR RECORD LOWS EXPECTED WITH MIN
TEMPS MAINLY IN 20S...WITH TEENS IN NORMALLY COOLER SHELTERED VLYS.

TROF OVER NORTHERN PLAINS BY MID WEEK. WL CONT TO MENTION CHC POPS
WEDS ASSOCIATED WITH 5H VORT IN NW FLOW ALOFT AND SFC WARM FRNT
LIFTING ACRS OUR CWA. HOWEVER...MODELS PLACE BEST LIFT/MOISTURE WITH
SYSTEM ACRS CENTRAL GREAT LKS INTO SOUTHERN CANADA. OTHERWISE...85H
TEMPS NEAR 10C WEDS SUPPORT HIGHS IN THE 70S WITH NEAR 80F EXPECTED
FOR THURS AND FRIDAY. THE AIRMASS WL BECM INCREASING MORE UNSTABLE
AS LLVL MOISTURE INCREASES LATE NEXT WEEK...THEREFORE CHCS FOR
AFTN/EVENING TS WL INCREASE. GIVEN TIME FRAME AND EXPECTED COVERAGE
WL KEEP FCST DRY ATTM WITH TEMPS ABOVE NORMAL FOR A CHANGE.
