AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
400 AM EDT THU MAY 30 2013
.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH 
FRIDAY WITH WARM...HUMID...AND MAINLY DRY WEATHER EXPECTED. A SLOW 
MOVING COLD FRONT WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY APPROACH THE REGION BY 
SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY WITH AN INCREASING THREAT OF SHOWERS AND 
THUNDERSTORMS. COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER WILL RETURN BY EARLY NEXT 
WEEK AS THE FRONT PUSHES SOUTH AND EAST OF THE AREA.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 400 AM EDT THURSDAY...FORECAST ON TRACK FOR TODAY AS DEEP
LAYER RIDGING CONTINUES TO BUILD NORTHWARD ACROSS THE REGION WITH
PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. WITH AMBIENT BACKGROUND FORCING FOR
LIFT VERY WEAK AND A MODEST CAP EVIDENT OFF THIS MORNING'S
SOUNDINGS AROUND 750 MB...CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION WILL BE VERY
LOW. WHILE I CAN'T COMPLETELY RULE OUT AN ISOLATED SHOWER OR STRAY
STORM BY LATE AFTERNOON ACROSS THE ADIRONDACKS OR PERHAPS THE
HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE SOUTHERN GREENS DUE TO ENHANCED THETA-E
CONVERGENCE...THE EXPECTED PAUCITY OF COVERAGE WARRANTS KEEPING
SENSIBLE FORECAST DRY TODAY. IT WILL FEEL CONSIDERABLY WARMER AND
MORE HUMID HOWEVER AS SUMMERLIKE AIRMASS MAKES FURTHER INROADS
INTO OUR AREA UNDER BUILDING H5 HEIGHTS AND LIGHT TO MODEST
SOUTH/SOUTHWESTERLY LOW LEVEL FLOW. MEAN 925 MB THERMAL PROGS
CONCUR...SUPPORTING HIGHS GENERALLY FROM 78 TO 82 IN THE MOUNTAINS
AND 81 TO 85 IN THE VALLEYS WITH MODESTLY HIGH HUMIDITY LEVELS AS
SURFACE DEWPOINTS HOLD IN THE 58 TO 66 RANGE THROUGH THE DAY.
&&
.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 400 AM EDT THURSDAY...CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES THEN ON TAP
FOR TONIGHT AS TEMPERATURES HOLD ON MILD SIDE UNDER CONTINUED
LIGHT SOUTHERLY FLOW. LOWS BY FRIDAY MORNING 57 TO 67 WITH PATCHY
BR/FG IN FAVORED AREAS OF EASTERN VT/ADIRONDACKS.
BY FRIDAY...GENERALLY A CARBON COPY OF TODAY AS DEEP LAYER 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGING PEAKS ACROSS THE REGION. BLENDED 18-00Z 925 MB 
THERMAL PROGS ARE A FEW DEGREES WARMER AND LEANED CLOSE TO A BLENDED 
MOS IDEA IN REGARD TO MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES...OFFERING VALUES IN THE 
85 TO 90 DEGREE RANGE FOR MOST AREAS. A TAD MORE INSTABILITY AND 
LESS OF A MID-LEVEL CAP THAN TODAY...SO AN ISOLATED LATE 
AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING STORM A TAD MORE PLAUSIBLE THAN TODAY. 
NONETHELESS COVERAGE SHOULD STILL BE RATHER SCANT WITH NO 
LARGE-SCALE MECHANISM FOR LIFT PRESENT. ANY EVENING ISOLATED 
SHOWERS/STORMS TO THEN END OVERNIGHT FRIDAY AS SKIES REMAIN CLEAR TO 
PARTLY CLOUDY AND LOWS HOLD IN THE 60S TO LOCALLY AROUND 70.
ON SATURDAY...DEEP RIDGING BEGINS TO SHOW FIRST SIGNS OF BREAKING 
DOWN AS AN EVOLVING UPPER TROUGH AND ATTENDANT COLD FRONT ACROSS 
THE MIDWEST AND GREAT LAKES PUSHES EASTWARD. LOOKING AT ALL OF 
THE NON-QPF/PCPN FIELDS FROM THIS MORNING'S MODELS WOULDN'T GET A 
FORECASTER OVERLY EXCITED ABOUT POTENTIAL FOR PRECIPITATION...BUT A 
CLOSER LOOK DOES SHOW INCREMENTAL HEIGHT FALLS ALOFT ALONG WITH 
AMBIENT PBL INSTABILITY AND SOME SLIGHT INCREASE IN SHEAR. WITH 
THIS IN MIND AND OWING TO THE FACT THAT MOST RELIABLE SOLUTIONS SHOW 
SCATTERED AFTERNOON CONVECTION DEVELOPING ACROSS OUR AREA...WILL 
MAINTAIN CONSISTENCY SHOWING 30-50% POPS FOR AN AFTERNOON SHOWER OR 
STORM HERE OR THERE...BEST THREAT NORTH AND WEST. HIGHS AGAIN QUITE 
WARM (80S) AND HUMID GIVEN WE'LL STILL BE IN MOIST SOUTH TO 
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AHEAD OF THE FRONT.
&&
.LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 324 AM EDT THURSDAY...LATEST GFS/ECMWF IN FAIRLY GD
AGREEMENT FOR THE EXTENDED PERIOD W/ FRNTL BOUNDARY WEST OF THE
CWA SATURDAY NGT...PUSHING SLOWLY EASTWARD SUNDAY/SUNDAY NIGHT AND
FINALLY ARRIVING ALONG THE SOUTHERN/EASTERN NEW ENGLAND COAST BY
THE MORNING HRS OF MONDAY. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN BEHIND THIS
SYSTEM SLOWLY MONDAY NGT THRU WEDNESDAY...SLOWED BY EXITING UPPER
LOW ASSOCIATED W/ CD FRNT. LOOKING FOR ROUND OF RW/TRW WITH FROPA
SUN/SUN NGT...TAPERING TO -RW MONDAY. HAVE INCR POPS FOR THIS
TIMEFRAME ACCOUNTING FOR SLOW MVMNT AND MDL TREND KEEPING PRECIP
CHANCES OVER AREA. TRAINING OF QPF IS POSSIBLE FOR MOST OF THE
AREA DURING FROPA W/ A COUPLE INCHES OF RAIN POSSIBLE. BEST
CHANCES WILL OCCUR SUN NGT AS SFC LOW MVS INTO SOUTHERN QUEBEC.
FOR MONDAY...EXPECTING LINGER -RW OVER NORTHERN ZONES ASSOCIATED
WITH UPPER LOW EFFECTS. WARMEST DAY WILL BE ON SUNDAY AHEAD OF
FRNT. CLD COVER ASSOCIATED WITH SOME PREFRONTAL -RW COULD KEEP
TEMPS DOWN SOME AT ONSET...BUT 70S STILL LOOKS GD FOR DAYTIME
HIGHS...TAPERING TO THE U60S/L70S FOR MONDAY THRU WEDNESDAY.
OVERNGT LOWS WILL ALSO TREND COOLER AS DAYS PROGRESS DUE TO CLRING
SKIES WITH RIDGE BUILDING OVER THE CWA. BEST WX FOR EXTENDED WILL
OCCUR TUES NGT INTO WED AS SFC RIDGE CRESTS OVER THE NORTHEAST.
&&
.AVIATION /08Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...

VFR UNDER SKC DOWN TO IFR/VLIFR DUE TO FG FORMATION. MAIN AREAS
