AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
625 AM EST SAT NOV 15 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
DRIER WEATHER WILL MOVE INTO THE NORTH COUNTRY FOR THE FIRST HALF
OF THE WEEKEND. EXCEPTION WILL BE LAKE EFFECT SNOW MAKING
AFFECTING NORTHERN NEW YORK. MORE WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION IS
EXPECTED SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 7 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 624 AM EST SATURDAY...CURRENT IR SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
CLOUDS BEGINNING TO BREAK UP ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY. ADJUSTED
SKY GRIDS ACCORDINGLY. NO OTHER SIGNIFICANT CHANGES FOR THIS
UPDATE. PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FOLLOWS.
HIGH PRESSURE RIDGING WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY
TODAY WITH A SURFACE HIGH CENTERED OVER THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY AND
SLOWLY TRACKING EASTWARD. LATER THIS AFTERNOON FLOW BECOMES
FAVORABLE FOR SOME LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS TO REACH THE SOUTHERN
SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEY AND NORTHERN ADIRONDACKS. TEMPERATURES WILL
BE BELOW NORMAL TODAY.
&&
.SHORT TERM /7 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH MONDAY/...
AS OF 411 AM EST SATURDAY...FOR TONIGHT INTO EARLY SUNDAY THIS
LAKE EFFECT BAND WILL SHIFT TOWARDS THE SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEY AS
THE FLOW BEGINS TO TAKE ON A MORE SOUTH SOUTHWESTERLY COMPONENT.
AN UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE WILL ALSO APPROACH NORTHERN NEW YORK
DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AND ENHANCE THE CHANCE FOR SNOW SHOWERS
IN THAT AREA. MOISTURE INCREASES ON SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AND WARMER
AIR WILL ALSO BEGIN TO STREAM INTO THE AREA. PROBABILITY OF
PRECIPITATION WILL INCREASE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY AS LARGE
UPPER LEVEL TROF APPROACHES FROM THE GREAT LAKES REGION. SURFACE
LOW TRACKS FROM NORTH OF THE GREAT LAKES EASTWARD TOWARDS OUR
FORECAST AREA. MODELS ALSO SHOW SECONDARY LOW DEVELOP OFF THE
COAST OF NY AND TRACK NORTHEASTWARD. THERE ARE STILL SOME
DIFFERENCES IN THE MODELS FOR THIS TIMEFRAME...MEANING LOTS OF
UNCERTAINTY STILL. 540 LINE WILL BE VERY CLOSE TO OUR
AREA...MAKING PRECIPITATION TYPE HARD TO DETERMINE. THE ECMWF HAS
THE WARMEST SOLUTION AND WOULD GIVE US A LOT OF RAIN WITH THIS
SYSTEM. GFS IS A BIT COLDER...BUT STILL NOT A COMPLETE SNOW EVENT.
ALL MODELS ARE DEPICTING A MIX OF SNOW AND RAIN...AND MOST OF THE
HEAVIEST QPF SOUTHEAST OF OUR FORECAST AREA. STEADY STRATIFORM
PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED FOR MONDAY. AT THIS TIME LOOKS LIKE A
QUARTER OF AN INCH TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH OF LIQUID
EQUIVALENT CAN BE EXPECTED. LOTS OF UNCERTAINTY STILL WITH
PRECIPITATION TYPE...BUT IF COLD ENOUGH FOR SNOW COULD HAVE OUR
FIRST PLOWABLE SNOW OF THE SEASON. STILL TOO EARLY TO TELL JUST
YET.
&&
.LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
AS OF 355 AM EST SATURDAY...BY MONDAY NIGHT SFC WAVE WILL BE
DEPARTING QUICKLY NORTHEAST WITH COLDER AIR FILTERING INTO THE
REGION AND WIDESPREAD NATURE OF PRECIPITATION TRENDING TO
SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS. DEPENDING ON TRACK OF SYSTEM RAINS/MIX
WILL TRANSITION BACK TO LIGHT SNOW OR LIGHT/MODERATE SNOWS WILL
TAPER OFF WITH ADDITIONAL MINOR ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE.
BEHIND THIS SYSTEM...COLDEST AIR OF THE YEAR WILL PUSH INTO THE 
NORTHEAST FROM TUESDAY ONWARD AS ANCHORED WESTERN CONUS RIDGE ALLOWS 
CP AIR TO CONTINUE SURGING SOUTHEAST INTO MOST OF THE EASTERN 2/3RDS 
OF THE NATION. TEMPERATURES WILL AVERAGE SOME 10 TO 20 DEGREES BELOW 
NORMAL AS HIGHS RANGE FROM 25 TO 35 AND OVERNIGHT LOWS BOTTOM OUT IN 
THE TEENS AND 20S...TEMPERED SLIGHTLY BY OVERNIGHT CLOUDS. WITH MEAN 
LOW TO MID LEVEL FLOW OSCILLATING BETWEEN 240 AND 290 DEGREES AND 
850 MB TEMPS AVERAGING FROM -12 TO -15C...STRONG LAKE ONTARIO 
RESPONSE AND INSTABILITY WILL PRETTY MUCH BE A CERTAINTY. INDEED A 
QUICK LOOK AT SOUNDING PROFILES SUGGEST LAKE INDUCED CAPES WILL 
OCCASIONALLY EXCEED 1000 J/KG WITH INVERSION HEIGHTS ABOVE THE 700 
MB LEVEL. THUS WE'LL LIKELY BE LOOKING AT AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF LAKE 
EFFECT SNOWS...HEAVY AT TIMES IN OUR FAVORED SNOWBELTS ACROSS THE 
SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF ST LAWRENCE AND FRANKLIN COUNTIES INTO WESTERN 
ESSEX COUNTY NY. SOME OF THE ACTIVITY WILL OCCASIONALLY MAKE IT IN 
INTO VERMONT...ESPECIALLY DURING PASSAGE OF SHORTWAVE ENERGY TUESDAY 
EVENING...AND AGAIN BY WED NT/THU. THE GREEN MTN SPINE SHOULD 
RECEIVE AT LEAST SOME ADDITIONAL SNOWFALL DURING THIS PERIOD...BUT 
GIVEN THE MID LEVEL FLOW WILL AVERAGE 30-40 KTS SOME LIGHT 
ACCUMULATIONS TO THE VERMONT VALLEY FLOORS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE. 
BIG WINNERS WILL BE THE NEW YORK SNOWBELTS HOWEVER. INDEED...BY THE 
TIME ALL IS SAID AND DONE SOME FAVORED LOCALES MAY BE MEASURING 
QUITE A SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL BY MID TO LATE WEEK.
&&
.AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
THROUGH 12Z SUNDAY...MAINLY VFR THROUGH THE PERIOD AS
WEST/NORTHWEST FLOW BACKS TO SOUTH/SOUTHWEST FROM 00Z ONWARD.
MORNING CLOUDS TO GIVE WAY TO PTLY SUNNY SKIES AT MOST TERMINALS
