AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
344 AM EDT THU APR 30 2015
.SYNOPSIS...
VARIABLE CLOUDS, DRY WEATHER AND SEASONABLY MILD 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE THE RULE OF THUMB ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH 
SATURDAY AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS ACROSS THE REGION. 
TEMPERATURES WARM CONSIDERABLY ABOVE AVERAGE FOR SUNDAY INTO MONDAY 
AS SOUTHERLY WINDS RETURN TO THE REGION. THE NEXT CHANCE FOR 
SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY AS A 
COLD FRONT SAGS INTO THE REGION.
&&
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 330 AM EDT THURSDAY...ANOTHER PLEASANT MID-SPRING DAY ON
TAP AS WEAK HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS SANDWICHED ACROSS THE REGION
BETWEEN MARITIME LOW PRESSURE AND ADDITIONAL UPPER ENERGY DROPPING
SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES. INDEED AFTER PERUSAL OF THIS
MORNING'S DATA IT APPEARS TODAY WILL NEARLY MIMIC YESTERDAY'S
CONDITIONS. MEAN LOW TO MID LEVEL FLOW WILL REMAIN NORTH TO
NORTHEASTERLY THROUGH THE DAY WHICH WILL ONCE AGAIN TRANSPORT
OCCASIONAL CLOUD COVER OF MARITIME ORIGIN SOUTHWESTWARD INTO THE
AREA, CLOUDS BEING MOST PREVALENT ACROSS OUR EASTERN COUNTIES.
MEAN 925 MB TEMPERATURES ARE PERHAPS A DEGREE OR TWO WARMER THAN
YESTERDAY SO HIGHS RANGING FROM THE LOW TO MID 60S EAST AND MID TO
UPPER 60S FROM THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY WEST LOOKS RIGHT ON TRACK.
CAN'T COMPLETELY RULE OUT A STRAY SPRINKLE ACROSS THE HIGHER
TERRAIN OF OUR EASTERN VT COUNTIES TODAY, BUT BY AND LARGE DRY
WEATHER IS EXPECTED. WINDS NORTH TO NORTHEASTERLY 5 TO 15 MPH,
HIGHEST IN THE SLV.
&&
.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 330 AM EDT THURSDAY...MORE OF THE SAME BY TONIGHT THROUGH
SATURDAY AS UPPER LOW PRESSURE SLIDES BY TO OUR WEST AND SOUTH AND
MEAN PBL FLOW REMAINS GENERALLY LIGHT. WEAK ENERGY SLIDING
SOUTHWESTWARD WITHIN THE NORTHEASTERLY MID LEVEL FLOW COULD
PRODUCE A STRAY LIGHT SHOWER OR SPRINKLE ACROSS THE SOUTHERN HIGH
TERRAIN TONIGHT, OTHERWISE DRY WEATHER SHOULD CONTINUE THROUGH THE
PERIOD UNDER VARIABLY CLOUDY/PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES. HIGH
TEMPERATURES RANGING THROUGH THE 60S ON FRIDAY, WARMING INTO THE
MID 60S TO LOWER 70S BY SATURDAY AS WINDS TREND MORE WESTERLY AND
BEGIN TO USHER IN AN AIRMASS MORE CONTINENTAL IN NATURE. DID OPT
TO UNDERCUT OVERNIGHT LOWS BY JUST A FEW DEGREES (30S TO LOWER
40S) GIVEN FORECAST OF AT LEAST SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUD COVER AND
RECENT WARM BIAS IN THE BLENDED MOS GUIDANCE.
&&
.LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 341 AM EDT THURSDAY...IT'S GETTING TO BE A BIT OF A BROKEN
RECORD WITH THE EXTENDED PERIOD. THE MODELS HAVE BEEN QUITE
CONSISTENT WITH THE WARM SEASONALLY DRY CONDITIONS DOMINATED BY AN
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE WEEKEND GIVING WAY TO A SURFACE FRONTAL
SYSTEM ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON THAT LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BRING RAIN
SHOWERS TO NEARLY THE ENTIRE FORECAST AREA AS IT DROPS SOUTH FROM
CANADA.
SUNDAY THERE WILL BE A MODERATE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE THAT KEEPS THE
AREA NICE HIGH AND DRY AS A SURFACE HIGH CENTERED OVER THE GULF
COAST KEEPS THE EASTERN CONUS CALM AND DRY. LOCALLY WE WILL SEE
LIGHT TO MODERATE WEST TO SOUTHWEST WINDS ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE
HIGH AND TEMPS SHOULD WARM INTO THE UPPER 60S WITH LOW 70S
POSSIBLE IN THE CHAMPLAIN AND SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEYS. MONDAY THAT
HIGH CONTINUES TO DRIFT EASTWARD AND WILL BRING WHAT SHOULD BE A
WONDERFUL DAY ON MONDAY WITH TEMPERATURES CREEPING UP INTO THE MID
TO UPPER 70S UNDER PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES.
FROM THERE A THE UPPER LEVEL FLOW TURNS ZONAL ON TUESDAY AND A
WEAK SURFACE FRONT BRINGS A LIKELY CHANCE OF RAIN AS THE FRONT
DROPS SOUTH ALONG THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER INTO NORTHERN NEW YORK
AND NEW ENGLAND. THAT BIT OF PRECIP WILL CAUSE TEMPS TO COOL
SLIGHTLY WHICH WILL BE A TREND NEXT WEEK OF TEMPS ONLY WARMING IN
THE MID WEEK TO SEASONAL MID 60S ACROSS THE AREA.
LOW TEMPS THROUGH THE PERIOD WILL REMAIN FAIRLY CONSISTENT IN THE
UPPER 40S TO LOW 50S WITH THE WARMEST OVERNIGHT LOWS OCCURRING
MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING BEFORE THE FRONT COOLS THE AREA
DOWN SLIGHTLY.
&&
.AVIATION /08Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
THROUGH 06Z FRIDAY...EXPECT PREVAILING VFR THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD WITH POSSIBLE MVFR STRATUS AT MPV AND MVFR/IFR GROUND FOG AT
SLK.
CURRENTLY SKIES CONTINUE TO RANGE FROM CLEAR ACROSS MSS/SLK/BTV TO
SOME HIGH CLOUD OVER PBG AND OVC MID-CLOUDS FOR MPV. EXPECT THESE
TRENDS TO CONTINUE OVERNIGHT. LATEST GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO POINT
TO IDEA OF LOWER STRATUS DECK INTRUDING INTO MPV OVERNIGHT AS LOW-
LEVEL FLOW BECOMES EASTERLY, THOUGH CURRENT OBSERVATIONS IN THE
GULF OF MAINE AND SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND SHOW OVC VFR CEILINGS
4000-5000 FEET. AT SLK, PROJECTED LOW TEMPERATURES DROP A FEW
DEGREES BELOW CROSSOVER TEMPS IN THE MID- 30S UNDER CLEAR SKIES
AND LIGHTENING WINDS, SUPPORTING SOME MVFR TO IFR LIGHT FOG IN
LIGHT BL FLOW CONDITIONS. I TRENDED BACK THE TIMING OF THE FOG TO
MATCH MORE OF THE RAP SOUNDING. GIVEN WE ARE STILL IN THE PRE
GREEN UP PHASE THE ONSET OF LIGHT GROUND FOG WILL LIKELY ONLY
OCCUR ONCE WE ARE A FEW DEGREES COLDER THAN THE ACTUAL CROSSOVER
TEMP. NORTH/NORTHEAST WINDS BECOME LIGHT/VARIABLE OVERNIGHT. VFR
CONDITIONS INTO THURSDAY WITH SCT/BKN CLOUDINESS BETWEEN
5000-7000FT. WINDS GENERALLY NORTH/NORTHEAST 5-8 KTS.
OUTLOOK 06Z FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY...
06Z FRIDAY - 12Z MONDAY...GENERALLY VFR CONDITIONS AS WEAK HIGH
PRESSURE SLOWLY BUILDS INTO THE REGION. SOME MVFR SHOWERS ARE
POSSIBLE FRIDAY/SATURDAY AS A COASTAL LOW PASSES WELL OFFSHORE.
12Z MONDAY - 00Z TUESDAY...VFR WITH A CHANCE FOR MVFR SHOWERS AS
LOW PRESSURE PASSES NORTH OF THE INTL BORDER.
&&
.EQUIPMENT...

SPORADICALLY MISSING FROM THE AWOS (AUTOMATED WEATHER OBSERVING
