AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
645 AM EDT SAT JUN 20 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLIDE OFF THE NEW ENGLAND COAST TODAY,
WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES SEEING A GRADUAL INCREASE IN CLOUDS THIS
AFTERNOON IN WARMING SOUTHERLY FLOW. RAIN SHOWERS WILL SPREAD
NORTHWARD INTO THE AREA TONIGHT, WITH WIDESPREAD RAIN SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING SUNDAY. RAINFALL MAY BECOME MODERATE TO
HEAVY AT TIMES BEFORE EXITING THE REGION EASTWARD LATE MONDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 8 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 645 AM EDT SATURDAY...AFFECTS OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL PERSIST
TODAY, AS THE SURFACE RIDGE SLIDES EAST OF THE REGION. MOSTLY
CLEAR SKIES WITH JUST A FEW CIRRUS CLOUDS THIS MORNING WILL ALLOW
ANY RESIDUAL FOG FROM LAST NIGHT TO BURN OFF QUICKLY. THE NORTH
COUNTRY WILL SEE RETURN SOUTH/SOUTHWEST FLOW AS THE RIDGE MOVES
INTO THE ATLANTIC.925MB TEMPERATURES WILL REACH THE MID TO UPPER
TEENS AND WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AT LEAST THROUGH THE EARLY
AFTERNOON, EXPECT MAX TEMPERATURES TO REACH THE MID TO UPPER 70S
FOR MOST AREAS.

&&

.SHORT TERM /8 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH MONDAY/...
AS OF 443 AM EDT SATURDAY...MID LEVEL ZONAL FLOW PERSISTS AND
KEEPS THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL CYCLONE BILL TO THE SOUTH, BUT SOME
MOISTURE FROM BILL LOOKS TO MAKE ITS WAY NORTH WITH PRECIPITABLE
WATER VALUES INCREASE TO AROUND 1.5 INCHES SATURDAY NIGHT. MODELS
INDICATE HIGHER PWATS POSSIBLE, BUT LACK DEFINED CONVEYOR BELT OF
MOISTURE AS WINDS THROUGHOUT THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BE IN THE LIGHTER
SIDE. ANY MOISTURE FEED DOES APPEAR TO BE AIMED MORE EAST OF THE
FORECAST AREA.

A WEAK WARM FRONT WILL LIFT INTO REGION IN ADVANCE OF WEAK MID
LEVEL SHORTWAVE AND ASSOCIATED AREA OF SURFACE LOW PRESSURE
TRACKING EAST FROM THE GREAT LAKES TONIGHT. RAIN CHANCES INCREASE
MAINLY AFTER 06Z AS THE 06ZNAM INDICATES SOME LOW LEVEL
DEFORMATION MOVING INTO THE NORTH COUNTRY. WITH CLOUDINESS AND
INCREASING RAIN SHOWERS, EXPECT MINIMUM TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER
50S TO MID 60S.

ON SUNDAY, RAIN CHANCES INCREASE AS SURFACE LOW MOVES OVER THE
EASTERN GREAT LAKES. PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES CLIMB TO AROUND
1.75 INCHES...SO THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR SOME HEAVIER SHOWERS
ESPECIALLY SUNDAY AFTERNOON INTO SUNDAY EVENING. HAVE ALSO
CONTINUED WITH MENTION OF THUNDERSTORMS..ALTHOUGH IT REMAINS TO BE
SEEN HOW MUCH INSTABILITY WE WILL SEE GIVEN PROSPECTS OF MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES AND PERIODIC SHOWERS. 925MB TEMPERATURES INCREASE A
DEGREE OR TWO, BUT CLOUDS AND THREAT OF RAIN WILL HINDER
INSTABILITY. THAT BEING SAID, GFS AND NAM BRING SURFACE BASED CAPE
OF 800-1200 J/KG OVER THE AREA WITH LIFTED INDICES AS LOW AT -6.
LACK OF WIND SHEAR AND STEEP LAPSE RATES WILL LIMIT POTENTIAL FOR
WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. HAVE KEPT CHANCE FOR
THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY NIGHT.
 
SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING, THE AFOREMENTIONED LOW WILL
TRAVEL ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY, THOUGH SOME MODEL GUIDANCE WILL
ATTEMPTS TO PHASE REMNANTS OF BILL WITH THIS LOW, BRINGING THE
BULK OF MOISTURE AND ENERGY OFF THE COAST OF NOVA SCOTIA. ALSO
DURING THIS PERIOD, THE UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE, NOW BETTER DEFINED
WILL MOVE ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY. SO WHILE WE EXPECT RAIN
SHOWERS AND SOME LINGER POSSIBILITY FOR THUNDER SUNDAY NIGHT,
RAINFALL WILL BE LIGHTER THAN SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THIS IS ALSO
REFLECTED IN PWATS DECREASING TO 1.2 INCHES AND LESS BY 12Z
MONDAY.

RAIN SHOWERS WILL BE DIMINISHING AS THE UPPER SHORTWAVE PUSHES
EAST OF VERMONT ON MONDAY. SOME SLIGHT RIDGING WILL TRY TO BUILD
IN BRIEFLY TOWARDS THE END OF THE DAY. BUT CLOUDS WILL STILL
PERSIST WITH NOT MUCH FLUCTUATION IN TEMPERATURES FROM PREVIOUS
DAYS. MAX TEMPS WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE 70S.

AS FOR TOTAL QPF FROM SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...LOOKING AT
WIDESPREAD 1 TO 1.5 INCHES...WITH POTENTIAL FOR HIGHER AMOUNTS IN
HEAVIER CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY. THIS WILL CAUSE AT LEAST MODERATE
RISES ON ALL AREA RIVERS. RIVERS ARE STILL FORECAST TO REMAIN
BELOW BANKFULL BUT WILL CONTINUE MONITORING AS SOME RISES ON MAIN
STEM RIVERS MAY NEAR ACTION STAGE.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
AS OF 407 AM EDT SATURDAY...HAVE KEPT IN A CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR
MONDAY NIGHT AS A WEAK SHORTWAVE PASSES THROUGH THE REGION.

ON TUESDAY...ECMWF AND GFS MODELS IN FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT IN
BRINGING A WARM FRONT INTO THE REGION EARLY TUESDAY...THEN
FOLLOWED BY A WEAK COLD FRONT LATER IN THE DAY. HAVE GONE WITH
HIGH CHANCE TO LOW LIKELY POPS FOR SHOWERS AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
A THUNDERSTORM ON TUESDAY AND EARLY TUESDAY NIGHT. MODELS SHOWING
A MID LEVEL DRY SLOT TO MOVE INTO THE REGION LATER TUESDAY
NIGHT...SO EXPECTING MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS AFTER MIDNIGHT TUESDAY
NIGHT. A WEAK RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD INTO THE REGION
FROM THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND REMAIN OVER
THE REGION THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH FAIR AND DRY WEATHER
EXPECTED.

SOME WEAK SHORTWAVES WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION ON THURSDAY AND
THURSDAY NIGHT...SO HAVE KEPT IN A CHANCE OF SHOWERS. HAVE OPTED
TO KEEP IN A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AGAIN ON FRIDAY...PER SUPER-BLEND
POPS. HOWEVER...00Z ECMWF AND GFS MODELS HINTING AT A DRY FORECAST
FOR FRIDAY. WILL SEE IF THIS TREND CONTINUES WITH LATER MODEL
RUNS.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
THROUGH 06Z SUNDAY...MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS EXPECTED THROUGH THE
PERIOD AS A WEAK RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE OVER THE REGION.
MAINLY CLEAR SKIES ACROSS THE REGION AS OF 06Z SATURDAY...WITH
SOME HIGH THIN CIRRUS CLOUDS ACROSS SOUTHERN VERMONT. SOME PATCHY
VALLEY FOG IS POSSIBLE BETWEEN 08Z-12Z SATURDAY...ESPECIALLY IN
THE MORE SHELTERED VALLEYS OF VERMONT AND NORTHERN NEW YORK.
EXPECTING MAINLY CLEAR SKIES TODAY WITH SOME HIGH THIN CIRRUS
CLOUDS ACROSS THE REGION TODAY. LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS EARLY
THIS MORNING WILL BECOME SOUTHERLY AT 5-10 KNOTS BETWEEN 13Z-15Z.
CLOUD COVER TO BE ON THE INCREASE THIS EVENING WITH A LOW TO MID
LEVEL DECK OF CLOUDS DEVELOPING BETWEEN 22Z SATURDAY THROUGH 02Z
SUNDAY AROUND 050-070 FEET.

OUTLOOK 06Z SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...

06Z SUN-12Z MON...MVFR/IFR. SHRA LIKELY. CHANCE TSRA.
12Z MON-00Z WED...VFR. CHANCE MVFR SHRA.
00Z WED-00Z THU...VFR. NO SIG WX.

&&

.HYDROLOGY...
RAIN WILL PUSH NORTHWARD INTO THE NORTH COUNTRY TONIGHT, MAINLY
AFTER MIDNIGHT. THE THREAT OF RAIN SHOWERS WILL PERSIST INTO
SUNDAY WITH THUNDERSTORMS ALSO A POSSIBILITY. WITH A VERY MOIST
ATMOSPHERE IN PLACE SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT, MODERATE TO HEAVY
SHOWERS POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY WITHIN THUNDERSTORMS. RAIN CONTINUES
INTO MONDAY WITH FORECAST STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS RANGING
FROM 1-1.5 INCHES WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.

ALTHOUGH DRYING HAS OCCURRED FRIDAY AND WILL CONTINUE TODAY,
RECENT RAINFALL MAY KEEP SOILS MOIST. WHILE MAIN STEM RIVERS ARE
EXPECTED TO RISE MODERATELY, RIVERS LOOK TO REMAIN BELOW BANKFULL.
SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS WILL ALSO EXPERIENCE RISES. WILL CONTINUE
TO MONITOR SITUATION AS IT UNFOLDS.

&&

.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
VT...NONE.
NY...NONE.
