AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
623 AM EST MON DEC 8 2014
.SYNOPSIS...
DRY WEATHER AND BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL ONCE AGAIN BE THE
RULE ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY TODAY. HOWEVER...BIG CHANGES ARE ON
THE WAY BEGINNING TUESDAY AS A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DEVELOPS
OFF THE EASTERN SEABOARD AND STALLS AROUND LONG ISLAND TUESDAY
NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION WILL SPREAD FROM
SOUTH TO NORTH ACROSS THE AREA TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY WITH THE
POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY SNOW ALONG WITH SLEET MIXING IN ACROSS
VERMONT. GUSTY WINDS AND THE WEIGHT OF THE SNOW MAY ALSO CAUSE
POWER OUTAGES ALONG WITH DIFFICULT TRAVEL.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 7 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 622 AM EST MONDAY...GOING FORECAST IN REAL GOOD SHAPE AND NO
CHANGES NEEDED AT THIS TIME. STRONG HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER
THE AREA TODAY FOR DRY WEATHER ALONG WITH BELOW NORMAL
TEMPERATURES WITH HIGHS GENERALLY IN THE 20S.
&&
.SHORT TERM /7 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 333 AM EST MONDAY...POTENTIAL CONTINUES FOR SIGNIFICANT
WEATHER TO IMPACT THE NORTH COUNTRY TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY. A
WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THIS TIME PERIOD AND HAVE
ALSO ADDED THE SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEY TO THE WINTER STORM
WATCH...THUS THE ENTIRE AREA WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY
SNOW AND IN SOME PLACES NOTICEABLY ACCUMULATIONS OF SLEET. AS
STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES TO THE LONG ISLAND AREA TUESDAY
INTO WEDNESDAY...STRONG BURST OF WARM AIR ADVECTION PRECIPITATION
DEVELOPS OVER SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND AND SPREADS UP ACROSS OUR AREA
TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. THERMAL PROFILE WILL BE COLD ENOUGH
FOR SNOW EVERYWHERE IN OUR AREA...BUT IT LOOKS LIKE AFTER MIDNIGHT
WARMER AIR ALOFT MOVES IN OVER PARTS OF VERMONT TO ALLOW FOR A MIX
OF SNOW AND SLEET. EVENTUALLY A DRY SLOT MOVES INTO PARTS OF
VERMONT ON WEDNESDAY AND PRECIPITATION WILL TAPER OFF AND TEMPERATURES
WILL BE WARM ENOUGH FOR A MIX OF LIGHT SNOW...SLEET... AND RAIN.
OVER NORTHERN NEW YORK HOWEVER...DEFORMATION ZONE PRECIPITATION
WILL EXIST AND DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL NORTHEAST FLOW WILL ENHANCE
THE UPSLOPE POTENTIAL TO GO ALONG WITH A THERMAL PROFILE THAT
SUPPORTS MAINLY SNOW. ALL OF THIS MEANS ADDITIONAL SNOWFALL OVER
ALL OF NORTHERN NEW YORK AND THIS IS WHY WE HAVE INCLUDED THE
SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEY IN THE WINTER STORM WATCH AS THIS AREA
SHOULD PICK UP MORE SNOW WEDNESDAY AND BEYOND. THERE WILL ALSO BE
A CONCERN FOR GUSTY WINDS IN THE 20 TO 30 MPH RANGE OVER THE
ENTIRE AREA ON WEDNESDAY WHICH COULD CAUSE SOME ISSUES WITH POWER
GIVEN THE HEAVIER NATURE TO THE PRECIPITATION AS TEMPERATURES WILL
BE IN THE 30S. THESE FACTORS PLUS THE POTENTIAL FOR 6 TO 12 INCHES
OF SNOW WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS ALONG WITH SLEET MIXED IN
SUGGESTS THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS THE RIGHT CALL AND WILL
CONTINUE TO HIGHLIGHT THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT WEATHER
TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY.
&&
.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 333 AM EST MONDAY...OCCLUSION WILL CONTINUE TO PLAGUE
REGIONAL WEATHER CONDITIONS DURING THE THU-FRI TIME FRAME WITH
CONTINUED DECENT CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION...THOUGH OVERALL
INTENSITY WILL BE LIGHTER AND TREND MORE SCATTERED IN NATURE OVER
TIME. A FEW OF THE LITERAL DETERMINISTIC SOLUTIONS WOULD SUGGEST
ADDITIONAL WRAP-AROUND ENERGY MAY HANG ON WELL INTO NEXT
WEEKEND...BUT AT THIS POINT WILL LEAN TOWARD CONTINUITY AND OFFER
A DRYING TREND FROM FRI NIGHT ONWARD. THIS SEEMS THE MOST
REASONABLE COURSE AT THIS POINT AND LEANS CLOSE TO MOST RECENT HPC
PROGS. OUTSIDE SOME BRIEF VALLEY MIX DURING WED NT/THU...THICKNESS
AND PBL THERMAL PROGS SUPPORT MAINLY SNOW/SHSN AS UPPER LOW FILLS
AND LARGER-SCALE WARM THERMAL ADVECTIVE PROCESSES WEAKEN THROUGH
TIME. WHILE LOWER VALLEY LOCALES COULD SEE AN ADDITIONAL FEW
INCHES HERE AND THERE THROUGH FRIDAY...HIGHER ELEVATIONS SHOULD
CONTINUE TO DO QUITE WELL ACCUMULATION WISE. HARD TO PINPOINT
AREAS OF GREATEST ADDITIONAL HIGH-ELEVATION TOTALS AT THIS TIME
HOWEVER...WHICH WILL ULTIMATELY HINGE ON THE LOCATION OF THE
CLOSED GYRE ...DIRECTION OF MEAN MID-LEVEL FLOW AND ANY ADDITIONAL
WEAK BUNDLES OF ENERGY ROTATING THROUGH THE MEAN CYCLONIC UPPER
FLOW. IF I HAD TO MAKE A HUNCH...BIG WINNERS IN OUR AREA FROM THE
EVENT AS A WHOLE MIGHT BE THE EASTERN ADIRONDACKS WHERE PERSISTENT
NORTHEASTERLY UPSLOPE FLOW AND COLDEST STORM-DURATION THICKNESS
PROFILES WILL RESIDE. TIME WILL TELL. IN REGARD TO TEMPERATURES...
DAILY MEANS TO AVERAGE WITHIN A FEW DEGREES OF NORMAL WITH HIGHS
IN THE 30S AND OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE 20S TO AROUND 30.
&&
.AVIATION /12Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
THROUGH 12Z TUESDAY...VFR EXPECTED THROUGH MOST OF THE PERIOD.
HIGH CLOUDS WILL CONTINUE TO THICKEN OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
LATEST GUIDANCE SUGGESTS RETURN FLOW MARINE STRATUS TO PUSH
NORTHWARD AFTER 00Z UNDER SOUTH TO SOUTHEASTERLY AT 5 TO 12 KNOTS
(EXCEPT NORTHEAST AT MSS). MOST AREAS TO REMAIN VFR BUT HAVE
OFFERED MVFR CIGS AT KMPV AFTER 03Z OR SO.
OUTLOOK 12Z TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...
12Z TUESDAY - 00Z FRIDAY...VFR TRENDING TO MVFR/IFR IN SNOW AND
MIXED PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG COASTAL LOW.
00Z FRIDAY - 00Z SATURDAY...LOW PRESSURE PULLS NORTHEAST OF THE
REGION WITH PRECIPITATION ENDING...BUT MVFR CIGS LIKELY TO REMAIN.
&&
.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...

     AFTERNOON FOR VTZ001>012-016>019.
