AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
359 AM EDT TUE SEP 24 2013
.SYNOPSIS...
UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SPINNING ACROSS THE CANADIAN MARITIMES WILL 
BRING PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES TO THE REGION THROUGH THURSDAY 
ALONG WITH COOL TEMPERATURES. DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED HOWEVER. BY 
FRIDAY INTO THE COMING WEEKEND...LARGE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD 
ACROSS THE REGION BRINGING CLEAR SKIES AND MILDER TEMPERATURES. THE 
NEXT CHANCE OF RAINFALL WILL NOT OCCUR UNTIL NEXT WEEK WHEN A COLD 
FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE WEST.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 345 AM EDT TUESDAY...MAINLY A CLOUD COVER AND TEMPERATURE
FORECAST PROBLEM FOR TODAY'S WEATHER AS EXPANDING UPPER CYCLONIC
GYRE SLOWLY PIVOTS ACROSS FAR NRN MAINE INTO THE CANADIAN
MARITIMES. DEEP NORTH TO NORTH-NORTHWESTERLY FLOW SHOULD CONTINUE
TODAY AND ALLOW AT LEAST SOME CLEARING ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL VT AND
FROM THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY WEST INTO OUR NRN NY
COUNTIES...ESPECIALLY BY THIS AFTERNOON. FURTHER NORTH AND
EAST...CLOUDS SHOULD BE MORE PROBLEMATIC AND WITH BROAD MODEL
CONSENSUS IN THE 925-850 MB RH FIELDS WILL KEEP THESE AREAS MAINLY
CLOUDY TODAY. NO PRECIPITATION HOWEVER AS DEEPER RH AND DYNAMICAL
SUPPORT FOR UPWARD VV MORE CLOSELY TIED TO THE CENTER OF THE UPPER
LOW TO OUR NORTHEAST. GIVEN WE RAN SOME 10 DEGREES BELOW MODEL
TEMPERATURE GUIDANCE YESTERDAY...WILL CONTINUE THIS IDEA BY
LEANING TOWARD THE COOLER SIDE OF THE MACHINE NUMBERS...GENERALLY
OFFERING VALUES FROM THE LOWER TO PERHAPS MID 60S IN THE SLV AND
PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL VT...AND 50S ELSEWHERE. EVEN A FEW UPPER
40S POSSIBLE IN THE NC/NERN VT MOUNTAINS. WINDS PERSISTENT
NORTHWESTERLY FROM 7 TO 12 MPH AND OCCASIONALLY GUSTY...ESP ACROSS
VT WHERE GRADIENT WILL BE SLIGHTLY STRONGER.
&&
.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 345 AM EDT TUESDAY...WELL...IT'S BEEN SAID MANY TIMES THAT IF
YOU'RE IN THIS BUSINESS YOU MUST KEEP A HUMBLE ATTITUDE AS MOTHER
NATURE CAN ALWAYS THROW A WRENCH AT YOUR WELL PLANNED-OUT
FORECAST. INDEED...I'VE BEEN CARRYING THE IDEA FOR SEVERAL DAYS
THAT DEEP LAYER HIGH PRESSURE OFF TO OUR NORTHWEST WILL GRADUALLY
BUILD INTO OUR REGION WITH CLEARING/SUNNY SKIES AND MILD
TEMPERATURES FROM MID-WEEK ONWARD. WHAT I DIDN'T COUNT ON IS THE
BUILDING WARMTH AND INVERSION ALOFT LIKELY TRAPPING A SHALLOW
MOIST LAYER PIVOTING BACK SOUTHWEST INTO OUR REGION FROM DISTANT
MARITIME UPPER LOW. WHILE INDIVIDUAL MODEL MID LEVEL RH FIELDS CAN
SOMETIMES OVERDUE EXTENT OF SATURATION...CONSENSUS IS VERY STRONG
AMONG NEARLY ALL 00Z SOLUTIONS IN THE 925-850 MB RH FIELDS SHOWING
AMPLE CLOUD COVER BACKING SOUTHWEST INTO MUCH OF OUR REGION
TONIGHT AND PERSISTING...IF YOU BELIEVE IT LITERALLY...ALL THE WAY
INTO THURSDAY BEFORE FLOW TRENDS ANTICYCLONIC BY THURSDAY NIGHT.
AS A RESULT...I'VE OFFERED CONDITIONS CONSIDERABLY MORE CLOUDY
ACROSS OUR NORTHERN COUNTIES ACCORDINGLY. BEST SHOT AT SEEING SOME
CLEAR/SUNNY SKIES WILL BE ACROSS THE SLV AND PERHAPS PORTIONS OF
SC VT WHERE SOME MODEST DOWNSLOPE EFFECTS WILL OCCUR. ALSO
REMEMBER HOW I SPOKE OF "WIDER THAN NORMAL" TEMPERATURE RANGES FOR
WED/THU AS RECENT AS LAST NIGHT? GIVEN THE ABOUT SWITCH IN CLOUD
FORECAST...MAX/MINS WILL ACTUALLY TREND TOWARD NARROWER THAN
NORMAL RANGES...ESP NORTH/NRN MTNS. MID LEVEL TEMPERATURES DO
MODERATE SOMEWHAT SO WE'LL STILL SEE SOME GRADUAL WARMING THROUGH
THURSDAY...BUT NOT TO THE EXTENT PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED. HIGHS
COOLEST NC/NE VT IN THE 50S TO PERHAPS NEAR 60 BY
THURSDAY...MILDEST WEST/SLV WHERE SOLID 60S TO LOCALLY NEAR 70F BY
THURSDAY ARE EXPECTED. OVERNIGHT LOWS MAINLY IN THE 40S.
&&
.LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...
AS OF 359 AM EDT TUESDAY...SFC HIGH PRESSURE WILL PERSIST OVER
THE REGION...CRESTING OVER THE NORTH COUNTRY FRIDAY NIGHT INTO
SATURDAY WITH DRY CONDITIONS EXPECT TO LAST THROUGH AT LEAST
EARLY SUNDAY. GFS AND ECMWF BOTH HAVE A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND
ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT APPROACHING FROM WRN GREAT LAKES...BUT
ECMWF SHOWS TROPICAL SYSTEM PUSHING NORTH INTO THE OBX EARLY
SUNDAY...AS THE RIDGE BEGINS TO BEND BACK...SHIFTING E INTO THE
ATLANTIC. ECMWF BRINGS MOISTURE AND PRECIP FROM THE TROPICAL
SYSTEM INTO SRN PORTIONS OF CWA LATE SUNDAY...WHILE GFS KEEPS THE
EWD PROGRESSION OF AFOREMENTIONED GREAT LAKES LOW SLOWLY ERODING
THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE. DUE TO THESE
DISCREPANCIES...CONFIDENCE LOW FOR BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK.
CANADIAN GEM MODEL ALSO SHOWS THE TROPICAL SYSTEM...SO THIS WILL
BE SOMETHING TO KEEP AN EYE ON...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR THIS
SYSTEM TO MOVE IN NEW ENGLAND EARLY NEXT WEEK.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLGTLY ABOVE NORMAL IN THE 60S-L70S DURING
THE DAY AND 40S-L50S OVERNIGHT.
&&
.AVIATION /08Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
THROUGH 06Z WEDNESDAY...LOW LEVEL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO FEED INTO
THE NORTH COUNTRY FROM THE NORTH AND EAST...AS CYCLONIC FLOW
PERSISTS. EXPECT CLRING AT KMSS TO BE SHORT LIVED AS SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS INCREASING CLOUDS MOVING SOUTH INTO THE AREA. AREAS
S AND W IN THE SLV LOOK TO STAY CLOUD FREE. MVFR LOW CLDS WILL
CONTINUE TO AFFECT KMPV...WITH SOME BREAKS TO VFR THROUGHOUT THE
MORNING. KSLK CIGS CURRENTLY 022 AND CONTINUE TO LOWER. EXPECT
CIGS AT KSLK TO REMAIN MVFR THROUGH MORNING. ELSEWHERE...EXPECTED
VFR AS WIND FLOW GENERALLY STRONGER...BUT REMAIN MOSTLY CLOUDY
INTO MID MORNING HRS.
AREA OF LLVL MOISTURE WILL RETREAT EWD DURING THE DAY...ALLOWING
FOR MOSTLY CLEAR CONDITIONS ACROSS THE SLV AND PSBLY THE
ADKS...PARTLY CLOUDY CONDITIONS IN THE CPV...WITH MOST OF VT IN
MOSTLY CLOUDY TO OVC. ALL CIGS DURING THE DAY EXPECTED TO BE VFR.
WINDS WILL INCREASE IN THE MID TO LATE MORNING OUT OF THE NW AT
6-12KTS GUSTING 15-20KTS. INTO THE EVENING HRS/OVERNT WIND FLOW
WILL SHIFT MORE N TO NE WITH SPEEDS OF 10KTS OR LESS. THE LLVL
MOISTURE LOOKS TO SURGE BACK EAST WITH VFR/MVFR CIGS.
OUTLOOK 06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS
EXPECTED THROUGH THE PERIOD AS A SURFACE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BUILD SLOWLY INTO THE REGION AND REMAIN OVER THE REGION
THROUGH SATURDAY. UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL KEEP CLOUDY SKIES OVER THE
REGION THRU FRIDAY...WITH PSBL MVFR CIGS OVERNIGHT AT KMPV AND
KSLK. FRIDAY NGT WILL BE GENERALLY CLEAR SKIES WITH BR/FG
DEVELOPMENT PSBL.
