AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
405 AM EST THU DEC 16 2004

.SHORT TERM (TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY)...
MAIN WEATHER FEATURE AFFECTING AREA OVER NEXT SEVERAL DAYS WILL BE
STRONG COLD FRONT PROGGED TO AFFECT AREA LATER TONIGHT THROUGH THE
FIRST HALF OF FRIDAY. SENSIBLE WEATHER TODAY SHOULD BE GOVERNED BY
BROAD SW FLOW AROUND PERIPHERY OF DEPARTING SFC TO MID LVL RIDGE
AXES. THIS FLOW SHOULD ALLOW FOR TEMPERATURES TO REBOUND NICELY FROM
YESTERDAY/S COLD READINGS. EXPECT A GOOD DEAL OF SUNSHINE DURING
FIRST PART OF DAY...ESP FROM CHVLY EASTWARD...THEN TRENDING MORE PC
LATER DURING DAY WITH INCREASING MID LVL WAA CLOUDINESS. CLOUDS THEN
THICKEN AND LOWER OVERNIGHT AS AFOREMENTIONED FRONT BEGINS TO
ENCROACH ON N NY ZONES AFTER MIDNIGHT. MOISTURE COLUMN ALONG BNDRY
IS NARROW...BUT FAIRLY DEEP. THIS COMBINED WITH DECENT QG FORCING
AND FAIRLY POTENT SHORTWAVE PASSING JUST NORTH OF AREA ARGUES FOR
CHC TO LIKELY POPS ACROSS NORTHERN/WESTERN ZONES
OVERNIGHT...CONTINUING THROUGH MORNING HOURS ON FRIDAY BEFORE
ENDING. CHVLY AND AREAS ACROSS SOUTHERN VT SHOULD SEE ONLY SCT
ACTIVITY...WITH MINOR ACCUM OF 1 TO 2 INCHES ACROSS SLV AND NORTHERN
MTN ZONES WHERE SOME UPSLOPE/LAKE ONT ENHANCEMENT IS POSSIBLE. MORE
NOTICEABLE WILL BE THE BLUSTERY CONDS AND FALLING TEMPS BEHIND THE
FRONT. WITH FROPA EXPECTED IN THE MORNING HOURS MOST AREAS...EXPECT
TEMPS TO FALL ALL DAY ACROSS N NY...AND DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS
ACROSS VT.

THEN MAINLY CLEAR AND QUITE COLD FRI NT AS SHORTWAVE HIGH PRESSURE
BRIDGES OVERHEAD. HAVE UNDERCUT MOS MINS SEVERAL DEGREES AREA WIDE
HERE DUE TO STRONG RADIATIONAL EFFECTS EXPECTED. AFTERWARDS...MAINLY
PC SAT WITH MORE SEASONAL TEMPS RETURNING UNDER SOUTHERLY RETURN
FLOW. THEN TRENDING MOSTLY CLOUDY SAT NT INTO SUN W/A CHC SHSN
MAINLY WESTERN HALF OF FCST AREA AS SHARP/DEEP MERIDIONAL TROUGH
DIGS ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES INTO THE OHIO/TENNESSEE VALLEY STATES.
&&

.LONG TERM (SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY)...
NO CHANGES MADE TO EXTENDED PORTIONS OF FCST AT THIS TIME. CHC OF LT
SNOW OR SHSN LOOKS REASONABLE SUN NT INTO MON AREA WIDE AS NORTHERLY
FLOW AND AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH MOVE ACROSS AREA. LATEST OPERATIONAL
SOLNS...INCLUDING THE 00Z GFS/CANADIAN/ECMWF ARE ALL NOW FAVORING A
MORE PROGRESSIVE UPPER TROUGH...AND A MORE OFFSHORE SOLN INVOF OR
OUTSIDE THE 40N/-70W BENCHMARK IN REGARDS TO CYCLOGENESIS AND ASSOC
SFC LOW LATER SUNDAY INTO MONDAY TIME FRAME. THIS WOULD
SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER ANY THREAT OF MORE SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACROSS VT/N
NY DURING THESE PERIODS. NONETHELESS...PLENTY OF TIME TO MAKE ANY
ADJUSTMENTS HERE IN REGARDS TO EVOLUTION OF SENSIBLE WX PATTERN.
&&

.AVIATION (06Z-06Z)...
WEAK WARM AIR ADVECTION PATTERN EARLY THIS MORNING...BEST SEEN IN
925 MB AND 850 MB TEMPERATURE AND WIND FIELDS...HAS RESULTED IN THE
DEVELOPMENT OF SOME BROKEN CEILINGS IN THE MVFR CATEGORY.  THESE
CONDITIONS SHOULD PERSIST THROUGH ABOUT 13Z THIS MORNING...THEN AREA
GETS INTO THE 850 MB WARM SECTOR WITH ONLY SOME HIGH CLOUDS
EXPECTED.  THUS VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR A BETTER PART OF THE
DAY AND INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS.  MAIN FOCUS FOR ANY
PRECIPITATION AND MVFR CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO CEILINGS AND
VISIBILITIES WILL COME LATE IN THE PERIOD...MAINLY AFTER 04Z...AS
850 MB FRONT MOVES INTO THE REGION.  WIND SPEEDS WILL BE INCREASING
AFTER 12Z FROM THE SOUTH AS MIXING WILL ALLOW FOR STRONGER WINDS
JUST OFF THE SURFACE TO MIX DOWN.  WIND GUSTS WILL BE IN THE 20 KNOT
RANGE.
&&

.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
VT...NONE.
NY...NONE.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBANY NY
200 PM EST WED DEC 15 2004

.SHORT TERM (TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY)...
SURFACE RIDGE OVERHEAD THIS AFTERNOON MOVES EAST TONIGHT BUT WITH
UPPER LEVEL 500MB RIDGE MOVING IN.  ALONG WITH THIS SOME MID BUT
MOSTLY HIGH CLOUDS WILL TRAVERSE NORTHERN NY AND CROSS VT.
ALSO...OVER A 24 HR PERIOD...850 MB TEMPS WARM FROM A CHILLY -18C AT
KALB TO AROUND -8 TO -2 ACROSS VT AND NORTHERN NY BY THURSDAY
MORNING...WITH THE WARMER AIR UPSTREAM.  AS A RESULT OF THE CLOUDS
AND AN OVERALL WARMING AIRMASS...EXPECT LOWS LATE TONIGHT TO BE
ABOUT/AT LEAST 10 DEGREES WARMER THAN THOSE THAT OCCURRED THIS
MORNING.

THURSDAY EXPECT ANY CLOUDS OVERHEAD TO DEPART EARLY...ONLY TO RETURN
LATER IN THE AFTERNOON AS NEXT SHORTWAVE CURRENTLY NEAR MANITOBA CA
BEGINS TO AFFECT THE REGION.  THIS WILL MOVE THROUGH LATE THURSDAY
NIGHT INTO FRIDAY.  WILL CONTINUE WITH THE IDEA OF A CHANCE OF SNOW
SHOWERS AS THIS FEATURE...TIED TO A COLD FRONT AT THE
SURFACE...MOVES THROUGH THE REGION.  ANY PRECIP WILL QUICKLY DEPART
DURING THE DAY.
&&

.LONG TERM (FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY)...
SURFACE RIDGE BUILDS IN BEHIND THIS FAST MOVING SYSTEM FRIDAY
NIGHT.  SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT LOOKS PARTLY CLOUDY WITH SOME
HIGHER CLOUDS BUT DRY WEATHER.

THE BIG ISSUE WILL BE THE EVOLVING SYSTEM FOR SUNDAY THROUGH EARLY
NEXT WEEK.  ON SUNDAY A SYSTEM NEAR THE GREAT LAKES BEGINS TO AFFECT
NORTHERN NY AND VT...AND A LOW BEGINS TO DEVELOP OVER WV.  THE WV
SYSTEM BECOMES THE DOMINANT FEATURE BY MONDAY AS IT INTENSIFIES INTO
A POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT COASTAL STORM.  DPROG/DT OF GFS AND
ENSEMBLE INFO STILL SHOW A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY AS TO HOW THIS SYSTEM
WILL TRACK...SO WILL KEEP AREA UNDER A CHANCE OF SNOW/SNOW SHOWERS
THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD...WITH THE THE HIGHEST
PROBABILITY OF SNOW OVER NORTHERN NY LATE SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
CHANCE OF SNOW SLOWLY DECREASES AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES.
&&

.AVIATION (18Z-18Z)...
CONDITIONS WILL BE PRIMARILY VFR FOR KMSS/KSLK/KBTV OVER THE
NEXT 24 HOURS. A WEAK RIBBON OF H850 THERMAL ADVECTION ASSOCIATED
WITH A WEAK WARM FRONT AND A H500 VORT MAX WILL LIFT THROUGH THE
NORTH COUNTRY BTWN 00Z AND 06Z. THIS WILL PRODUCE SOME MID-LEVEL
CLOUDINESS WITH PERHAPS A BRIEF PERIOD OF MVFR CIGS AT ABOUT 2KFT
FOR THE KMSS AND KSLK TERMINALS. NO PCPN INCLUDED...THOUGH A FEW
FLAKES MAY BE AROUND. THE WINDS WILL INCREASE FROM THE S/SW AT 10 TO
15 KNOTS AROUND 12Z THU WITH SOME SCT-BKN CIRRUS CLOUDS.
&&

.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
VT...NONE.
NY...NONE.
