AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
400 AM EDT WED MAR 20 2013
.SYNOPSIS...
LARGE UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE WILL REMAIN ATOP THE REGION THROUGH 
SATURDAY WITH PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES...COOL TEMPERATURES AND 
PERIODIC EPISODES OF LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE 
NORTHERN MOUNTAINS. HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY BUILDS INTO NORTHERN NEW 
YORK AND NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND BY THE EARLY TO MIDDLE PORTIONS OF 
NEXT WEEK WITH A RETURN TO NEAR SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES AND MAINLY 
DRY WEATHER. 
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 400 AM EDT WEDNESDAY...HAVE DROPPED ALL WARNINGS FOR THE
FORECAST AREA WITH THIS PACKAGE AS HEAVIER/ACCUMULATING SNOWS HAVE
ENDED ACROSS THE REGION. EVENT PANNED OUT MORE OR LESS AS
FORECAST...THOUGH WITH CUSTOMARY VARIABILITY IN SNOW TOTALS AS IS
EXPECTED WITH SUCH COMPLEX SYSTEMS. FOR TODAY DEEPER MOISTURE WILL
CONTINUE TO PIVOT SLOWLY NORTH AND EAST OF OUR AREA THROUGH THE
MORNING HOURS AS LOW TO MID LEVEL FLOW TRENDS WEST/SOUTHWESTERLY
OVER TIME AND OCCLUDING GULF OF MAINE LOW PRESSURE TRUDGES SLOWLY
NORTH. STILL MAINLY CLOUDY WITH A DECENT CHANCE FOR SNOW
SHOWERS/FLURRIES ACROSS THE NORTH HOWEVER...ESP ACROSS THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF THE FAR NRN GREENS/NERN VT THIS MORNING WHERE SOME
MINOR ADDL LIGHT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE. MAINLY DRY
ACROSS THE LOWER ELEVATIONS OF SRN VT WHERE SOME PARTIAL SUN
POSSIBLE BY THIS AFTERNOON. HIGHS A BLEND OF BIAS-CORRECTED AND
MODEL BLENDED DATA...MAINLY IN THE 28 TO 35 RANGE WHICH APPEARS
REASONABLE PER MODEL 925-850 MB THERMAL PROFILES.
&&
.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY/...
AS OF 400 AM EDT WEDNESDAY...BY TONIGHT ANY LINGERING LIGHT SNOW
SHOWERS TO BECOME CONFINED TO THE FAR NORTH AND THE WRN DACKS AS
UPPER FLOW CONTINUES WEST TO SOUTHWESTERLY AND DEEPER MOISTURE
PIVOTS NORTH OF OUR AREA. LIKELY TO SEE SOME BREAKS IN THE OVC
FROM TIME TO TIME...ESP IN THE BROADER VALLEYS. AS A RESULT...I
DIDN'T STRAY TOO FAR FROM MODEL GUIDANCE ON LOW TEMPERATURES AS
ANY PARTIAL CLEARING COULD LEAD TO QUICK RADIATIONAL COOLING
EFFECTS AND THROW A WRENCH IN NEAR-SFC TEMPERATURE PROFILES.
VALUES GENERALLY BOTTOMING OUT IN THE UPPER SINGLE DIGITS INTO THE
TEENS BY SUNRISE THURSDAY...THOUGH LOCALLY AROUND 20 IN THE CPV.
BY THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY...BLOCKY PATTERN CONTINUES WITH UPPER POLAR 
GYRE REMAINING MORE OR LESS ATOP OUR REGION. INDEED...YESTERDAY'S 
COASTAL SYSTEM WILL HAVE RETROGRADED WESTWARD BY THIS TIME AND IS 
PROGGED TO MAKE A CIRCUITOUS CYCLONIC LOOP BACK ACROSS OUR AREA 
DURING THIS PERIOD. THUS WILL CONTINUE THE IDEA OF WIDESPREAD CLOUD 
COVER TO PUSH BACK INTO THE REGION ALONG WITH AN INCREASING CHANCE 
OF SNOW SHOWERS AS DEEPER MOISTURE SETTLES BACK SOUTH INTO THE 
FORECAST AREA. NOTHING LIKE YESTERDAY EXPECDTED...BUT CERTAINLY 
COULD SEE SOME ADDL LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS HERE AND THERE...ESP DURING 
THURSDAY NIGHT WHEN COOLER NEAR-SFC TEMPERATURES AND LACK OF 
INSOLATION WILL FOSTER BETTER ACCUM POTL. HIGHS THURSDAY U20S TO 
L30S...THEN L-M 30S BY FRIDAY. LOWS THURSDAY NIGHT 15 TO 25.
&&
.LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
AS OF 400 AM EDT WEDNESDAY...CWA REMAINS UNDER BROAD CYCLONIC
CIRCULATION FOR FRIDAY NGT INTO MUCH OF SUNDAY MORNING AS LATEST
RUNS OF GFS/ECMWF CONTINUE TO SHOW BROAD UPPER LOW SLOWLY PUSHING
INTO THE CANADIAN MARITIMES. BY AFTERNOON HRS SUNDAY AS SFC HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDS INTO AREA...CLRING CONDITIONS WILL ENSUE. RIDGE
REMAINS INTACT FOR MUCH OF MONDAY...ALTHOUGH LOW THAT PASSES TO
OUR SOUTH HAS PUSHED A BIT FARTHER NORTH FROM PREV MDL RUNS.
RETROGRADING UPPER LOW/TROUGH WILL THEN SWING BACK OVER THE REGION
GOING INTO MONDAY NGT/TUESDAY TIMEFRAME. FORECAST THRU EXTENDED
WILL SEE CLDS PERSIST OVER AREA MUCH OF THE PERIOD...W/ LATE
SUNDAY INTO MONDAY BEST CHANCES FOR MSUNNY/SUNNY SKIES. NNW FLOW
FOR FIRST PORTIONS OF EXTENDED WILL PROMPT CONTINUED MENTION OF
LGT -SW MAINLY OVER NORTHERN ZONES/HIR ELEV CLRING FROM W TO E AS
RIDGE APPROACHES. WITH TROUGH/LOW RETURNING FOR MON
NGT/TUES...POTENTIAL FOR MORE WIDESPREAD --SW AND CIRCULATION HAS
BETTER CHANCES TO DIG FURTHER INTO THE NORTHEAST. W/ CLD COVER
EXPECTED...TEMPS FOR THE FORECAST PERIOD WILL REMAIN BLW
NORMAL...ESPECIALLY FOR HIGHS. SUNDAY/MONDAY WITH HIGH PRESSURE
ARRIVING WILL GIVE HIGHS NEAR 40F...BUT STILL A FEW DEGREES BLW
