AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
521 AM EDT FRI MAY 23 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
SURFACE AND UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS MOVING ACROSS THE
NORTH COUNTRY TODAY WILL BRING SLOW MOVING SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO THE AREA. NORTHWEST UPPER LEVEL FLOW
THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND WILL CONTINUE THE UNSETTLED WEEKEND
WITH CHANCES FOR AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 8 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 500 AM EDT FRIDAY...CLOUDY SKIES AND SCATTERED LIGHT RAIN
SHOWERS CURRENTLY AFFECTING THE NORTH COUNTRY WILL CONTINUE
THROUGH THE DAY. SHOWERS WILL BECOME MORE NUMEROUS THIS AFTERNOON
WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE AS WELL. MAX TEMPS TODAY
WILL BE COOL WITH ONLY MID 60S EXPECTED...SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY.
UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE ENERGY AS WELL AS WEAK SURFACE LOW TRACKING
ACROSS OUR CWA WILL BE THE MAIN FORCING MECHANISMS. ANY SUN THAT
DOES BREAK THROUGH WILL RESULT IN SOME SURFACE BASED INSTABILITY
WITH DEEP COLD POOL ALOFT. VERY LIGHT WINDS WITH WEAK FORCING
WILL CAUSE HEAVY DOWNPOURS AT TIMES IN VERY SLOW MOVING SHOWERS.
&&
.SHORT TERM /8 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 515 AM EDT FRIDAY...UPPER LEVEL TROF FINALLY SHIFTS
SOUTHEAST OF THE NORTH COUNTRY OVERNIGHT AND COVERAGE OF SHOWERS
WILL DECREASE OVERNIGHT. SOME SHOWERS MAY AGAIN LINGER THROUGH
THE OVERNIGHT THOUGH...SIMILAR TO THE LAST COUPLE NIGHTS.
SOUTHERN AND EASTERN VERMONT WILL HAVE THE BEST CHANCE FOR THIS.
SKIES REMAIN CLOUDY AND TEMPERATURES WILL BE MILD. DURING THE
DAYTIME HOURS ON SATURDAY NORTHWESTERLY MID LEVEL FLOW DEVELOPS.
THERE SHOULD BE SOME SUN WITH DRIER AIR MOVING INTO THE REGION.
THIS WILL CAUSE SOME INSTABILITY...THOUGH MINOR...AND SOME
AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE ONCE AGAIN
EXPECTED. DUE TO SOME SUN IN THE FORECAST...AFTERNOON MAX TEMPS
WILL BE CLOSER TO SEASONAL NORMALS ON SATURDAY. SURFACE WINDS
WILL ALSO BE A BIT STRONGER WITH GRADIENT FLOW SUPPORTING NW
WINDS AROUND 10 MPH THROUGH THE DAYTIME HOURS. DAYTIME SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DISSIPATE OVERNIGHT AND FLOW WEAKENS AS
WELL. PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES WILL BE IN PLACE...AND RESULTING IN MIN
TEMPERATURES NEAR SEASONAL NORMALS. SURFACE HIGH BEGINS TO RIDGE
INTO THE NORTH COUNTRY ON SUNDAY...THOUGH NORTHWESTERLY UPPER
LEVEL FLOW WILL CONTINUE. WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES PASSING
THROUGH PROGRESSIVE FLOW WILL ONCE AGAIN BRING POSSIBILITY OF
SOME AFTERNOON SHOWERS...HAVE CHANCE POPS MENTIONED AT THIS TIME.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN SEASONAL NORMALS WITH
SUN HELPING TO WARM THE AREA.
&&
.LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 345 AM EDT FRIDAY...THE MAIN SURFACE WEATHER FEATURES WILL
BE A WARM FRONT MOVING IN SUNDAY NIGHT PASSING EARLY MONDAY AND A
COLD FRONT PASSING EARLY TUESDAY...BOTH WITH CHANCES OF SHOWERS
FOLLOWED BY MAINLY DRY WEATHER WED AND THU. THROUGH THE PERIOD
EXPECT CLOSE TO AVERAGE TEMPS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR THOUGH IT
MIGHT BE A BIT COOLER ON WED.
THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN FOR THE PERIOD WILL BE A PERSISTENT
NORTHWEST TO NORTH FLOW OVER OUR AREA WITH A COLD TROF/CUTOFF LOW
DEVELOPING IN THE CANADIAN MARITIMES AND HEAT RIDGE IN THE CENTER
OF THE COUNTRY.
CONFIDENCE RISING IN THE FORECAST AS MODELS ARE COMING INTO
BETTER AGREEMENT WITH THE EVOLUTION OF THE TROF/CUTOFF LOW IN THE
MARITIMES WITH THE ECMWF COMING BETTER IN LINE WITH THE GFS.
SUNDAY NIGHT A DEVELOPING WARM FRONT WILL BRING A CHANCE OF
SHOWERS WITH TEMPS IN THE 50S.
MONDAY AFTER SOME MORNING SHOWERS THE AREA GETS MORE INTO THE
WARM SECTOR WITH 85O TEMPS REACHING AS HIGH AS +10 TO +12C, SO
HIGH TEMPS WELL INTO THE 70S, PERHAPS NEAR 80. COULD BE A ROGUE
THUNDERSTORM BUT INSTABILITY LOOKS WEAK AT THIS POINT.
TUESDAY 850 TEMPS DROPPING WITH ABOUT +8C GIVING TEMPS IN THE
LOWER 70S WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AS A COLD FRONT DROPS
SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE AREA.
WED...850 TEMPS DOWN NEAR 0C EARLY RECOVER UP TO ABOUT 5-7C SO
TEMPS WILL BE IN THE 60S TO AROUND 70 UNDER A COOL NORTHERLY FLOW
WITH LOTS OF FAIR WEATHER CUMULUS. ONLY EXCEPTION WILL BE CHANCE
OF A SHOWER ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTHEAST. LOW TEMPS DOWN IN THE
40S, PERHAPS INTO THE 30S IN THE COLD SPOTS.
THU...850 TEMPS BACK UP TO 8-10C WITH TEMPS IN THE 70S AGAIN WITH
A DRY NORTHERLY FLOW.
&&
.AVIATION /09Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
THROUGH 06Z SATURDAY...MVFR/IFR CEILINGS WITH A FEW SHOWERS...LOW
CLOUDS...PATCHY FOG AND MIST WITH 0-3 DEGREE DEW POINT
DEPRESSIONS THROUGH MID MORNING WITH WEAK LOW PRESSURE RIGHT OVER
THE AREA.
CEILINGS WILL SLOWLY LIFT ON FRIDAY BACK UP TO MVFR OR JUST
BARELY VFR BY AFTERNOON DUE TO DAYTIME HEATING BUT ADDITIONAL
SHOWER DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED...ESPECIALLY AFTER 15Z. CAN'T
COMPLETELY RULE OUT A THUNDERSTORM DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH HEATING
TAKES PLACE, BUT INSTABILITY IS MINIMAL WITH THE BEST CHANCE OF
THUNDER AT KMSS WITH A BIT MORE HEATING.
WINDS WILL BE LOCALLY VARIABLE THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD EXCEPT AT
KMSS WHERE IT WILL BE PERSISTENT NE AROUND 10 KTS.
OUTLOOK 06Z SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...
00Z THROUGH 12Z SAT...AREAS OF MVFR/IFR CEILINGS AND MIST
OVERNIGHT.
THRU 00Z MON...BECOMING MAINLY VFR WITH SCATTERED MVFR SHOWERS
SATURDAY AFTERNOON...AND ISOLATED SHOWERS SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
00Z MON THRU 00Z TUE...GENERALLY DRY WITH VFR CONDITIONS UNDER
SFC HIGH PRESSURE.
00Z TUE ONWARD...VFR WITH SCATTERED MVFR SHOWERS/POSSIBLE
THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH PASSING COLD FRONT.
