AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
640 AM EST THU FEB 5 2015
.SYNOPSIS...
AN ARCTIC FRONT WILL PUSH SOUTHEAST OF THE AREA THIS MORNING...WITH 
SNOW SHOWERS COMING TO AN END FOLLOWED BY CLEARING SKIES. IT WILL BE 
BITTER COLD TONIGHT AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS THE 
REGION. A SERIES OF WEAK DISTURBANCES WILL BRING A CHANCE OF SNOW 
SHOWERS TO THE NORTH COUNTRY FRIDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK...WHILE 
TEMPERATURES REMAIN BELOW NORMAL.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 7 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 406 AM EST THURSDAY...SNOW STILL FALLING ACROSS MUCH OF FORECAST
AREA AT THIS TIME...EXCEPT IN SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEY WHERE IT HAS
COME TO AN END. MOST OF THE SNOW IS ON THE LIGHT SIDE...BUT THERE
HAVE BEEN SOME HEAVIER SNOW SHOWERS IN VICINITY OF ARCTIC
FRONT...WHICH IS PUSHING THROUGH SOUTHERN AND EASTERN VERMONT AT
THIS TIME. THE SNOW CONTINUING WELL BEHIND THE BOUNDARY INTO THE
NORTHERN ADIRONDACKS AS ANY REMAINING MOISTURE GETS SQUEEZED OUT
IN THE COOLING AIRMASS. TEMPS APPROACHING THE SINGLE DIGITS IN THE
ST LAWRENCE VALLEY...AND THIS TEMPERATURE DROP WILL PROGRESS
EASTWARD THIS MORNING. DRIER AIR WILL EVENTUALLY WIN OUT...SO
EXPECT SNOW/SHOW SHOWERS TO TAPER OFF FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST
THIS MORNING. ANY ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS AFTER 12Z WILL BE ON
THE LIGHT SIDE...GENERALLY AN INCH OR LESS...AND CONFINED TO AREAS
SOUTH AND EAST OF THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY.
CLEARING SKIES WILL FOLLOW AS SURFACE RIDGE BUILDS INTO THE NORTH 
COUNTRY THIS AFTERNOON...WITH LARGE SCALE SUBSIDENCE IN WAKE OF
DEPARTING POTENT SHORTWAVE. 925MB TO 850MB TEMPS CONTINUE TO COOL
THRU 18Z UNDER STRONG LOW LEVEL COLD AIR ADVECTION ON NORTHWEST
WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH. SO MAX TEMP FORECAST FOR TODAY A DIFFICULT
ONE. LOOKS AS IF TEMPERATURES EARLY TODAY WILL BE CLOSE TO THE
HIGH IN MANY LOCATIONS. EXPECT RATHER STEADY TEMPS ACROSS NORTHERN
NEW YORK...AND FALLING TEMPS THROUGH THIS MORNING ACROSS VERMONT
BEFORE LEVELING OFF. IN GENERAL...TEMPS THIS AFTERNOON WILL BE IN
THE SINGLE DIGITS AND TEENS...WITH ADDED CHILL COURTESY OF
NORTHWEST BREEZE.
&&
.SHORT TERM /7 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 406 AM EST THURSDAY...COLD SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO
THE REGION THIS EVENING ACCOMPANIED BY CLEAR SKIES AND
DIMINISHING WINDS. THIS COMBINED WITH FRESH SNOW PACK WILL PROVIDE
IDEAL RADIATIONAL COOLING CONDITIONS THROUGH 06Z FRIDAY. MIN TEMPS
WELL BELOW ZERO ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA...WITH COLDEST READINGS
LIKELY TO OCCUR IN THE NORTHEAST KINGDOM WHERE LOWS OF 20 TO 25
BELOW CAN BE EXPECTED. LOWS IN THE ADIRONDACKS WILL BE AROUND 20
BELOW...BUT TEMPS THERE WILL MODERATE SOME BY MORNING DUE RETURN
OF CLOUDS. ELSEWHERE...LOWS WILL RANGE MOSTLY FROM 5 TO 15 BELOW.
BY FRIDAY MORNING...RIDGE AXIS WILL HAVE MOVED EAST OF FORECAST
AREA...ALLOWING FOR DEVELOPMENT OF RETURN SOUTHWEST FLOW. CLOUDS
WILL RETURN TO NORTHERN NEW YORK BY MORNING AND TO VERMONT DURING
THE DAY ON FRIDAY ALONG WITH THE CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS...MAINLY
ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK AND THE NORTHERN GREEN MOUNTAINS. THIS
DUE TO WARM AIR ADVECTION ON SOUTHWEST FLOW COMBINED WITH WEAK
SHORTWAVE AND SOME 850 TO 500 MB MOISTURE. TEMPS WITH DEVELOPING
LOW LEVEL WARM AIR ADVECTION WILL WARM BACK INTO THE TEENS MOST
LOCATIONS WITH DEVELOPING SOUTHERLY WINDS. ADDITIONAL MOISTURE AND
LIFT APPROACH OUR AREA FRIDAY NIGHT...WITH MORE SNOW SHOWERS
POSSIBLE. THE CLOUDS AND PRECIP WILL KEEP TEMPS RATHER STEADY
FRIDAY NIGHT WITH LOWS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS TO MID TEENS. ANOTHER
SHORTWAVE AND ASSOCIATED FRONT WILL BE MOVING ACROSS THE REGION ON
SATURDAY...BRINGING WITH IT CONTINUED CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS WITH
HIGHS MAINLY IN THE TEENS.
&&
.LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 250 AM EST THURSDAY...VERY LITTLE CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS
FORECAST THINKING AS MEDIUM RANGE GUIDANCE REMAINS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT IN REGARDS TO THE OVERALL SYNOPTIC PATTERN DURING THE
EXTENDED PERIOD.
LONGWAVE TROUGH WILL BE SET UP ACROSS THE MAJORITY OF THE 
NORTHEASTERN CONUS THROUGH THE PERIOD WITH A STRONG BAROCLINIC
ZONE SETTING UP FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS INTO PARTS OF THE MID
ATLANTIC STATES. FAST WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL SUPPORT MULTIPLE
PIECES OF SHORTWAVE ENERGY AND MOISTURE QUICKLY SHIFTING THROUGH
THE NORTH COUNTRY ALONG THE FRONTAL ZONE WITH SEVERAL PERIODS OF
LIGHT SNOW LIKELY. STRONGEST SHORTWAVE WHICH BRINGS THE BEST
CHANCE FOR ACCUMULATIONS SHIFTS FROM THE CANADIAN PRAIRIES INTO
THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES LATE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY AND
THROUGH THE NORTHEAST SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY. A WEAK SURFACE
LOW DEVELOPS OVER THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY SUNDAY, MOVING OFFSHORE
MONDAY NIGHT WHICH WILL HELP THROW SOME MOISTURE OUR WAY BUT
TRENDS CONTINUE TO BE THAT THE SYSTEM STAYS FAR ENOUGH SOUTH TO
LIMIT ANY BIG ACCUMS. A BRIEF SURFACE HIGH FOLLOWS FOR TUESDAY
NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY WITH ANOTHER CLIPPER SYSTEM APPROACHING FOR
WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
IN REGARDS TO TEMPS, OUTSIDE OF SUNDAY WHERE WE'LL STRUGGLE TO GET 
OUT OF THE SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE ZERO, TEMPS WILL ACTUALLY GET A
LITTLE CLOSER TO NORMAL THOUGH STILL RUN BELOW NORMAL. THINKING
TEENS TO LOW 20S FOR HIGHS MONDAY-WEDNESDAY WITH LOWS IN THE
SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE AND BELOW ZERO.
&&
.AVIATION /12Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
THROUGH 12Z FRIDAY...SNOW COMING TO AN END FROM NORTHWEST TO
SOUTHEAST AND SHOULD CLEAR THE BTV CWA WITHIN THE NEXT 2 HOURS.
LINGERING IFR/MVFR IN SNOW AT KMPV/KRUT WILL TREND TO VFR BY 14Z
AND ALL SITES GO SKC AFTER 00Z. WEST/NORTHWEST WINDS A BIT GUSTY
THIS MORNING, BUT TREND TO LIGHT AND VARIABLE OVERNIGHT. AFTER
06Z, MID-LEVEL DECK WILL APPROACH FROM THE WEST ASSOCIATED WITH
OUR NEXT CHANCE OF SNOW FRIDAY AFTERNOON.
OUTLOOK 12Z FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY...
VFR WITH PERIODS OF MVFR/IFR LIKELY IN LIGHT SNOW.
&&
.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
VT...NONE.
NY...NONE.
