AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
419 AM EDT SAT AUG 30 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
WARMER AND MORE HUMID CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE NORTH
COUNTRY TODAY AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SHIFTS EAST OF NEW ENGLAND
AND WINDS INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST. AN UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE WILL APPROACH FROM THE GREAT LAKES LATE TONIGHT INTO
SUNDAY...RESULTING IN INCREASING CLOUD COVER AND WIDESPREAD
SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS DURING THE DAY SUNDAY.
CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS...ESPECIALLY
WITH ANY THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY SUNDAY. DRIER WEATHER RETURNS ON
MONDAY...FOLLOWED BY SCATTERED SHOWERS AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING
COLD FRONT FOR TUESDAY. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN ABOVE
NORMAL OVER THE NEXT 5 TO 7 DAYS...WITH VALLEY HIGH TEMPERATURES
LIKELY REACHING THE MID 80S ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY.
&&
.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 351 AM EDT SATURDAY...SOUTH TO SOUTHWESTERLY LOW-LEVEL FLOW
WILL INCREASE TODAY ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY...BETWEEN SFC HIGH
PRESSURE DEPARTING EAST OF NEW ENGLAND AND WEAK SFC LOW MOVING EWD
THRU THE CENTRAL GREAT LAKES. THE SOUTHERLY RETURN FLOW WILL ALLOW
HUMIDITY TO INCREASE SLIGHTLY...WITH SFC DEWPOINTS REACHING THE
MID TO UPPER 50S THIS AFTERNOON. ALSO...850MB THERMAL RIDGE
DEVELOPS INTO THE REGION...WITH VALUES OF +15 TO +16C BY 00Z THIS
EVENING. ALREADY SEEING SOME CIRRUS CLOUDS WITHIN ANTICYCLONIC 
FLOW/UPPER RIDGING IN PLACE...SO WILL SEE PERIODS OF FILTERED
SUNSHINE THROUGHOUT THE DAY. LOOKING AT HIGHS REACHING THE UPR 70S
TO LOWER 80S...HIGHEST IN THE CHAMPLAIN AND ST. LAWRENCE VALLEYS.
S-SW WINDS GENERALLY 10-15 MPH...BUT LOCALLY 15-25 MPH IN GUSTS
(AND SUSTAINED 15-25 KTS OVER LAKE CHAMPLAIN...WHERE A LAKE WIND
ADVISORY HAS BEEN POSTED FOR TODAY). WITH MID-LEVEL RIDGING
REMAINING IN PLACE THRU THE DAY AND NOT MUCH EVIDENCE FOR LOW-
LEVEL CONVERGENCE...IT APPEARS IT WILL REMAIN DRY TODAY INTO THE
FIRST HALF OF TONIGHT. HAVE KEPT POPS BELOW 15 PERCENT.
MID-LEVEL HEIGHT FALLS COMMENCE TONIGHT...ESPECIALLY AFTER
MIDNIGHT AS UPPER RIDGE WEAKENS AND MID-LEVEL SHORTWAVE TROUGH
CONTINUES EWD ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES. SKIES SHOULD BECOME MOSTLY
CLOUDY FROM WEST TO EAST OVERNIGHT...WITH CONTINUED S-SW WINDS.
THIS WILL HELP KEPT TEMPERATURES UP INTO THE LOW-MID 60S FOR MOST
SECTIONS. LIKEWISE...CONTINUED LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ADVECTION WILL
ALLOW DEWPOINTS TO CLIMB INTO THE LOW 60S...AND LOCALLY INTO THE
MID 60S FOR THE ST. LAWRENCE VALLEY REGION. MAY SEE A FEW SHOWERS DEVELOP
AFTER MIDNIGHT...GENERALLY ACROSS NRN NY WITH MAINLY DRY
CONDITIONS IN VT. ENOUGH WIND/INCR CLOUDS SHOULD PRECLUDE FOG
FORMATION TONIGHT. 
&&
.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
AS OF 351 AM EDT SATURDAY...SUNDAY WILL BE AN ACTIVE DAY AS MID-
LEVEL TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED VORT MAX SHEARS EWD FROM SERN ONTARIO
ACROSS NRN NY AND VT BY EARLY SUNDAY EVENING. THE PERSISTENT S-SW
FLOW IN ADVANCE OF THIS MID-LEVEL FEATURE RESULTS IN PW VALUES OF
1.8-2" ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY. WHILE CLOUDS WILL LIMIT THE
EXTENT OF INSTABILITY...DO ANTICIPATE SOME SBCAPE OF 500-1000
J/KG. COMBINED WITH APPROACHING MID-LEVEL UVV...WILL YIELD
WIDESPREAD SHOWERS WITH SOME EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MUCH OF
THE NORTH COUNTRY. BEST POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE DURING
THE AFTERNOON HRS WITH BEST POTL FOR INSTABILITY. GIVEN HIGH
FREEZING LEVELS AND PW VALUES...CONTINUED WITH IDEA WITH SOME
LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH ANY THUNDERSTORMS.
WLY SFC-6KM BULK SHEAR ONLY 20-25 KTS...AND COMBINED WITH WEAK
LAPSE RATES/INSTABILITY SHOULD PRECLUDE ANY SVR THREAT. STORMS
SHOULD ALSO BE MOVING EWD ENOUGH THAT DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY FLOOD
THREAT. THAT SAID...A FEW LOCALIZED RAINFALL AMTS OF 1+" CAN/T BE
RULED OUT. POPS GENERALLY 60-80 PERCENT...HIGHEST ACROSS
CENTRAL/ERN VT DURING SUNDAY AFTN. HIGH TEMPS GENERALLY 78-81F
ACROSS THE REGION. 
SYSTEM SHEARS TO OUR EAST SUNDAY EVENING WITH GENERALLY FLAT SEA-
LVL PRESSURE FIELD SUNDAY NIGHT. WITH SOME PARTIAL
CLEARING...COULD SEE SOME LOCALLY DENSE FOG (ESPECIALLY AREAS
GETTING THE MORE SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL SUNDAY). LOWS GENERALLY IN
THE LOW-MID 60S WITH LIGHT WINDS. 
MONDAY APPEARS GENERALLY QUIET AND CONTINUED WARM/HUMID. HIGHS
WILL REACH THE LOW-MID 80S IN VALLEY SECTIONS UNDER PARTLY TO
MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. NOT MUCH FORCING FOR ASCENT WITH WEAK
SHORTWAVE RIDGE...SO MOST AREAS SHOULD REMAIN DRY FOR LABOR DAY.
WINDS LIGHT SOUTH TO SW AT 5-10 MPH. 
&&
.LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
AS OF 351 AM EDT SATURDAY...MAIN CONCERN FOR WEATHER IN THE EXTENDED 
FORECAST PERIOD...MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY...WILL BE TUESDAY
AND TUESDAY NIGHT. UPPER LEVEL TROUGH AND ITS ASSOCIATED COLD
FRONT WILL BE MOVING INTO THE AREA DURING THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING HOURS. AHEAD OF THE FRONT...ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED WITH HIGHS IN THE 80S AND COMBINED WITH INCREASING DEW
POINTS...SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY WILL DEVELOP OVER THE AREA AHEAD
OF THE FRONT. DEEP LAYER SHEAR WILL ALSO BE INCREASING OVER THIS
AREA OF DEVELOPING INSTABILITY. ALL OF THIS SUGGESTS THE POTENTIAL
FOR THUNDERSTORMS...SOME OF WHICH COULD BE STRONG OR SEVERE. THUS
WILL HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THIS SYSTEM. WILL CONTINUE THE IDEA IN
THE FORECAST FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TUESDAY AND TUESDAY
NIGHT. ONCE THE FRONT EXITS THE AREA LATE TUESDAY NIGHT...DRIER
WEATHER MOVES IN FOR WEDNESDAY...THURSDAY... AND MOST OF FRIDAY.
HIGH TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY WILL BE RIGHT AROUND
SEASONAL NORMALS.
&&
.AVIATION /08Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
THROUGH 06Z SUNDAY...OVERALL LOOKING AT VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH THE
PERIOD. KSLK AND KMPV WILL HAVE PERIODS OF LIFR AND VLIFR
CONDITIONS THROUGH ABOUT 12Z DUE TO VISIBILITY AND FOG. LIGHT
WINDS THIS MORNING WILL BEGIN TO INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH AFTER 12Z
WITH GUSTS IN THE 15 TO 20 KNOT RANGE THROUGH ABOUT 00Z.
OUTLOOK 06Z SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...
06Z SUNDAY ONWARD...MAINLY VFR, THOUGH MVFR/BRIEF IFR IN SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT WILL BE MOST NUMEROUS SUNDAY AND
PERHAPS AGAIN LATE TUESDAY.
&&
.MARINE...
AS OF 418 AM EDT SATURDAY...SOUTH WINDS WILL INCREASE SHARPLY ON
LAKE CHAMPLAIN TOWARD DAYBREAK AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT INCREASES
BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE DEPARTING EAST OF NEW ENGLAND...AND A
DEVELOPING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM ACROSS THE CENTRAL GREAT LAKES.
WINDS AT 4 AM HAD ALREADY REACHED 18 KTS AT COLCHESTER REEF.
DURING THE DAYLIGHT HOURS...SOUTH WINDS GENERALLY 15-25
KNOTS...HELPING TO BUILD WAVES TO 2-4 FEET BY THIS AFTERNOON. A
LAKE WIND ADVISORY HAS BEEN POSTED. 
SATURDAY NIGHT WINDS WILL INCREASE SLIGHTLY HIGHER AS CHAMPLAIN
VALLEY FUNNELING AND NOCTURNAL LOW LEVEL JET SET UP SO WINDS MAY
NUDGE A BIT HIGHER 20 TO JUST SHY OF 30 KNOTS OVERNIGHT. A FEW
WAVES OVER 4 FT MAY OCCUR ON THE NORTH HALF OF THE OPEN LAKE.
THERE WILL BE AN INCREASING CHANCE OF SHOWERS AFTER MIDNIGHT...AND
ESPECIALLY TOWARD DAYBREAK. 
SUNDAY SOUTH WINDS WILL TAPER OFF TO 10 TO 20 KNOTS AND WAVES WILL
SUBSIDE TO 1 TO 3 FEET. LOOKING FOR WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND A CHANCE
OF THUNDERSTORMS.
&&
.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
VT...NONE.
NY...NONE.
