AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
648 AM EDT FRI MAY 29 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE OVER THE NORTH COUNTRY TODAY AND
TONIGHT. A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL MOVE SLOWLY SOUTHEAST FROM
CANADA ON SATURDAY AND MOVE THROUGH THE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT.
ANOTHER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRIER COOLER WEATHER FOR
THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 447 AM EDT FRIDAY...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE OVER
THE REGION TODAY WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES EXPECTED WITH HIGHS IN
THE 80S. HAVE GONE A BIT ABOVE MOS GUIDANCE FOR MAX TEMPERATURES
TODAY.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 447 AM EDT FRIDAY...EXPECTING DRY WEATHER TO CONTINUE INTO
TONIGHT ACROSS THE REGION. HAVE LEANED TOWARD THE LOWER NAM MOS
POPS FOR TONIGHT. BTV 4KM AND ECMWF SHOWING A MAINLY DRY FORECAST
ACROSS THE REGION FOR TONIGHT. HAVE GONE WITH JUST SLIGHT CHANCE
POPS FOR SHOWERS FOR THE SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEY CLOSER TO DAYBREAK
ON SATURDAY. MODELS A BIT SLOW IN BRINGING IN SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS INTO THE REGION ON SATURDAY...WITH THE BEST CHANCE
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK LATE
SATURDAY MORNING. THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE INTO
VERMONT SATURDAY AFTERNOON. HAVE GONE WITH LIKELY POPS ON
SATURDAY. SPC HAS THE REGION IN A MARGINAL RISK FOR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS ON SATURDAY. HOWEVER...0-6 KM BULK SHEAR AT 18Z
SATURDAY IS ONLY 20-30 KNOTS...AND WET BULB ZERO VALUES AROUND
11000 FEET...SO ANY HAIL THAT DEVELOPS IN ANY THUNDERSTORM WILL
LIKELY REMAIN BELOW SEVERE CRITERIA AT THIS TIME. THE MAIN THREAT
FROM THE THUNDERSTORMS ON SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT APPEARS TO
BE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL...AS PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES RUNNING
AROUND 1.5 TO 1.8 INCHES SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO EARLY SATURDAY
EVENING.

EXPECTING RAIN SHOWERS TO LINGER INTO EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...BUT
EXPECTING CLEARING SKIES TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION BY SUNDAY
AFTERNOON AS THE COLD FRONT WILL BE SOUTH OF THE REGION.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 325 AM EDT FRIDAY...A STRONG 1039MB AREA OF HIGH PRES BUILDS
INTO SOUTHERN CANADA BEHIND SURFACE COLD FRONT ON SUNDAY NIGHT
INTO MONDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN COOL TEMPERATURES AND DRY
CONDITIONS. GIVEN MOISTURE PROFILES EXPECT A LARGE SWING FROM
COOL OVERNIGHT LOWS ON MONDAY MORNING TO HIGHS ON MONDAY AFTN.
STILL EXPECTING SOME PATCHY FROST IN THE COLDER VALLEYS OF THE
DACKS AND NEK ON MONDAY MORNING WITH LATEST MEX FOR SLK SHOWING A
30F. PROGGED 85H TEMPS BTWN 4-6C ON MONDAY SUPPORT HIGHS ONLY IN
THE 60S TO NEAR 70F WARMER VALLEYS...WITH NORTH WINDS.

PLENTY OF UNCERTAINTY DEVELOPS FOR MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY WITH
PLACEMENT OF DEEP LAYER MOISTURE AND DEVELOPMENT/MOVEMENT OF
MID/UPPER LVL TROF. GFS KEEPS OUR CWA DRY WITH SFC HIGH PRES
OVERHEAD AND BEST 850 TO 500MB MOISTURE AND ASSOCIATED QPF WELL
SOUTH OF OUR CWA. ITS INTERESTING THAT THE GFS SHOWS POTENT 5H
VORT AND CLOSED CIRCULATION MOVING ACRS OUR NORTHERN CWA ON
TUESDAY...BUT MOISTURE IS VERY LIMITED AND DISPLACED WAY TO OUR
SOUTH. MEANWHILE...THE ECMWF SHOWS THE 5H TROF AND ASSOCIATED
ENERGY MOVING DIRECTLY OVERHEAD...WITH SFC LOW PRES TRACKING ALONG
THE EASTERN SEABOARD FOR TUES. THIS WOULD RESULT IN A WIDESPREAD
RAIN EVENT...WITH VERY CHILLY TEMPS. THINKING THE ECMWF IS A BIT
AGRESSIVE WITH ADVECTION OF MOISTURE NORTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF SFC
LOW PRES...GIVEN POSITION OF HIGH...SO WILL CONT TO KEEP FCST DRY
ATTM. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS THE EVENT DRAWS CLOSER AND
MODELS COME INTO BETTER AGREEMENT. OTHERWISE...PROGGED 85H TEMPS
WARM A DEGREE OR TWO A DAY...AND SUPPORT ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS BY THE
MID TO END OF NEXT WEEK. EXPECT HIGHS BACK INTO THE M/U 70S MTNS
TO L 80S WARMER VALLEYS BY THURSDAY WITH LOWS MAINLY IN THE 40S
AND 50S.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
THROUGH 12Z SATURDAY...1028MB HIGH PRESSURE LOCATED OVER SOUTHERN
CANADA WILL CONTINUE TO INFLUENCE OUR TAF SITES TODAY WITH VFR
CONDITIONS. ANY LEFTOVER FOG/BR AND LOW LEVEL STRATUS WILL BURN
OFF BY 13Z...GIVEN HIGH SUN ANGLE. STILL EXPECTING AN HOUR OF
IFR/LIFR VIS/CIGS AT SLK THIS MORNING. OTHERWISE...LIGHT AND
VARIABLE TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS WILL BECOME SOUTH AT 5 TO 10 KNOTS
BY MID MORNING. THE COMBINATION OF INCREASE GRADIENT AND MID LEVEL
CLOUDS WILL LIMIT FOG/BR DEVELOPMENT TONIGHT.

OUTLOOK 12Z SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...A SURFACE COLD FRONT WILL
PRODUCE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON
INTO SATURDAY NIGHT. SOME STORMS COULD BE STRONG WITH LOCALIZED
GUSTY AND ERRATIC OUTFLOW WINDS...HEAVY RAINFALL...AND FREQUENT
LIGHTNING. BREEZY SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 25 KNOTS CAN
BE EXPECTED ON SATURDAY AFTN...BEFORE SWITCHING TO THE NORTHWEST
BY 12Z SUNDAY. AREAS OF LOW LEVEL TURBULENCE AND WIND SHEAR IS
LIKELY IN AND AROUND ANY THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY ON SATURDAY AFTN.
EXPECTING THE RAIN TO LOWER VIS BTWN 1-3SM IN THE HEAVIER
PRECIP...WITH PERIODS OF IFR LIKELY AT ALL TAF SITES. SFC HIGH
PRES WITH VFR CONDITIONS DEVELOP SUNDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.
SOME FOG/BR POSSIBLE EACH MORNING WITH IFR CONDITIONS.
