AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
447 AM EDT SUN MAR 10 2013
.SYNOPSIS...
A LARGE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN CONTROL OF THE NORTH
COUNTRY'S WEATHER TODAY THROUGH MONDAY...WITH ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES CONTINUING. CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE INCREASE THROUGH
THE PERIOD AS WELL AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT FROM THE
WEST...WHICH WILL BRING A PERIOD OF RAIN TO THE REGION MONDAY
NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY. PRECIPITATION TRANSITIONS TO A MIX OF RAIN
AND SNOW TUESDAY NIGHT WITH THE FRONTAL PASSAGE...FOLLOWED BY
SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS FOR WEDNESDAY.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 446 AM EDT SUNDAY...ANOTHER NICE DAY IS ON TAP FOR THE
NORTH COUNTRY TO FINISH UP THE WEEKEND WITH TEMPERATURES
CONTINUING TO WARM WELL ABOVE NORMAL. ONLY FLY IN THE OINTMENT SO
TO SPEAK WILL BE SOME INCREASING MID/HIGH CLOUDS THROUGH THE DAY
WELL AHEAD OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT WILL AFFECT THE AREA
LATE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT. MOISTURE ALOFT IS FAIRLY
SHALLOW THOUGH SO WE'LL LIKELY HAVE FILTERED SUNSHINE THROUGH DAY
AND SHOULDN'T AFFECT OVERALL SURFACE WARMING. TEMPS ACROSS THE
REGION SHOULD BE FAIRLY UNIFORM WITH 925MB TEMPS WARMING A DEGREE
OR 2 ABOVE YESTERDAYS LEVELS SUPPORTING HIGHS 50-55F...SOME 10-15
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. IN ADDITION...AS HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE
REGION THIS MORNING SHIFTS EASTWARD OFF THE COAST AND LOW
PRESSURE CONTINUES TO APPROACH FROM THE MID-WEST PRESSURE
GRADIENT INCREASES WITH A MODEST SSW 925MB JET OF 30-40KTS
PUNCHING INTO PORTIONS OF THE FORECAST AREA BY THE AFTERNOON.
SHOULD SEE SOME GUSTS IN THE 20-30 MPH RANGE...MAINLY ACROSS THE
CHAMPLAIN AND ST. LAWRENCE VALLEYS.
&&
.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY/...
AS OF 446 AM EDT SUNDAY...MILD AND DRY CONDITIONS CONTINUE
TONIGHT INTO MONDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OFF THE NORTHEAST
COAST AND SURFACE LOW MOVING OUT OF THE MID-WEST TRACKS
NORTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES. ATTENDING COLD FRONT AND
PRECIPITATION WON'T BE ON THE BTV'S DOORSTEP UNTIL LATE MONDAY
AFTERNOON THOUGH. AFOREMENTIONED LOW LEVEL JET OF 30-40KTS FROM
925-850MB CONTINUES TO PUSH INTO THE NORTH COUNTRY AHEAD OF THE
FRONT DURING THIS PERIOD WITH CONTINUED STRONG WARM AIR
ADVECTION. THUS...FROM THE GREEN MOUNTAINS WESTWARD NOT EXPECTING
A BIG DROP- OFF IN TEMPS SUNDAY NIGHT WITH SURFACE SSW FLOW
INCREASING. WE'LL LIKELY SEE TEMPS ONLY IN THE MID TO UPPER 30S
THERE WHILE EAST OF THE GREENS TEMPS WILL FALL TO RIGHT AROUND
FREEZING WHERE THERE WILL BE A LITTLE COLD AIR DAMMING. WARMEST
DAY OF THE STRETCH WILL BE MONDAY AS 925MB TEMPS SOAR TO +5-10C
WITH HIGHS AREA-WIDE AGAIN IN THE 50S...PUSHING 60 IN THE SAINT
LAWRENCE VALLEY. WITH STRONGLY AMPLIFIED FLOW AHEAD OF THE FRONT
PRECIPITATION WILL BE CLOSELY TIED TO THE UPPER TROUGH AXIS WHICH
WON'T MOVE INTO THE NORTHEAST UNTIL LATE MONDAY NIGHT. SSW FLOW
CONTINUES TO INCREASE MONDAY NIGHT WHICH WILL KEEP WINDS FAIRLY
STRONG ACROSS THE VALLEYS...AND ESPECIALLY ON LAKE CHAMPLAIN
WHERE WINDS MAY PUSH 30-40KTS. THUS...EXPECTING ANOTHER VERY MILD
NIGHT WITH AREA LOWS IN THE MID 30S TO LOWER 40S.
FRONTAL PRECIPITATION FINALLY MOVES INTO THE REGION EARLY TUESDAY
MORNING WITH A MODEST QPF EVENT EXPECTED. GENERALLY LOOKING AT A
HALF TO 1 INCH IN THE FORM OF RAIN AS THERMAL PROFILES REMAIN
WELL ABOVE FREEZING. IN TERMS OF HYDRO...NOT THINKING THIS WILL
BE A BIG DEAL BUT WITH RECENT WARM TEMPS AND SNOW MELT WE COULD
SEE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FEW BREAKUP JAMS ON AREA WATERWAYS.
CERTAINLY VERY DIFFICULT TO FORECAST WHEN AND WHERE THESE JAMS MAY
OCCUR...SO STAY TUNED.
&&
.LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 401 AM EDT SUNDAY...A TREND TOWARD BELOW NORMAL TEMPS IS EXPECTED 
LATER THIS WEEK...ESPECIALLY THU-SAT. SFC COLD FRONT WILL BE
SHIFTING EWD ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY 00-06Z WEDNESDAY BRINGING
COLDER VERTICAL TEMPERATURE PROFILES AND ALLOWING ONGOING RAINFALL
TO END AS A BRIEF PERIOD OF WET SNOW TUESDAY NIGHT. COULD SEE A
SLUSHY 1-2" ACCUMULATION IN THE VALLEYS (MAINLY ON GRASSY SURFACES
GIVEN ANTECEDENT WARM CONDITIONS)...AND UP TO 3" IN THE MTNS
BEFORE SNOW ENDS DURING THE PRE-DAWN HRS WEDNESDAY. TEMPERATURES
INITIALLY IN THE UPR 30S TO LWR 40S AROUND 00Z WED WILL GRADUALLY
LOWER DURING THE OVERNIGHT HRS WITH READINGS NEAR 32 MOST OF VT BY
10Z...AND IN THE MID-UPR 20S ACROSS NRN NY.
TRAILING CLOSED 500MB LOW SHIFTS EWD FROM THE ERN GREAT LAKES AND 
SERN ONTARIO ON WEDNESDAY...AND PASSES NORTH OF OUR REGION DURING 
THE DAY THURSDAY. THE UPR LOW WILL MAINTAIN GENERALLY CLOUDY 
CONDITIONS WED-THU. EXPECTATION IS FOR SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS 
WED/WED NIGHT/THU...WITH BEST POTENTIAL ALONG THE WRN SLOPES OF THE 
GREENS AND NRN ADIRONDACKS. BEST MOISTURE AND OROGRAPHIC CONDITIONS 
APPEAR TO BE IN PLACE FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT. MAY SEE A FEW INCHES IN 
THE MTNS AND OROGRAPHICALLY FAVORED SPOTS ALONG THE NRN GREENS...AND 
A LIGHT ACCUMULATION IN THE NRN VALLEYS DURING WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE 
UPR LOW PULLS AWAY THURSDAY NIGHT AND ANTICIPATE CLEARING SKIES AND 
DRY CONDITIONS FOR FRI-SAT. A COOL AND DRY NWLY FLOW WILL 
PERSIST...SO VALLEY HIGHS LATE IN THE WEEK ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED 
NEAR FREEZING...WHICH IS 5-8F BELOW MID-MARCH AVERAGES.
&&
.AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
THROUGH 12Z MONDAY...VFR CONDITIONS EXPECTED THROUGH THE PERIOD.
SCATTERED CIRRUS CLOUDS OVERNIGHT WILL GRADUALLY LOWER TO A MID-
LEVEL DECK (CEILINGS DEVELOPING AROUND 15 KFT) THIS AFTN...AND
THEN BKN-OVC080 CONDITIONS ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY DURING MUCH
OF SUNDAY NIGHT. NO PRECIPITATION EXPECTED AND HIGH CLOUDS SHOULD
PRECLUDE ANY FOG FORMATION EARLY THIS AM. LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS
DURING THE PRE-DAWN HOURS WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE OUT OF THE
SOUTH ON SUNDAY AS SFC HIGH DEPARTS INTO THE GULF OF MAINE LATE
TODAY. SOME GUSTS 10-20 KNOTS LIKELY THIS AFTN...ESPECIALLY AT KBTV.
GRADIENT FLOW REMAINS S-SW TONIGHT AND SHOULD SEE WINDS REMAINING 
5-10 KTS MOST TAF SITES SUNDAY NIGHT.
OUTLOOK 12Z MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY... 
12Z MONDAY THROUGH 06Z TUESDAY...VFR WITH MODERATE SOUTH WINDS.
MID-LEVEL DECK REMAINS 8-10 KFT.
06Z TUESDAY THROUGH 00Z WEDNESDAY...FRONTAL SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM
THE GREAT LAKES WILL BRING PERIODS OF MVFR/IFR RAIN.
00Z WEDNESDAY ONWARD...RAIN ENDS AS A PERIOD OF WET SNOW TUESDAY
NIGHT AS SFC COLD FRONT CLEARS THE AREA. MAY SEE SOME BRIEF IFR
SNOW 00-06Z WED. TRAILING UPR LOW RESULTS IN LINGERING/SCATTERED 
LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY...BRINGING BRIEF
PERIODS OF MVFR/IFR CONDITIONS...ESPECIALLY AT SLK/MPV.
