AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
353 AM EDT SUN AUG 16 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
WARM AND DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED ON SUNDAY. HAZY, HOT AND HUMID
WEATHER ARRIVE ACROSS THE REGION FOR MUCH OF NEXT WEEK AS DEEP
LAYER HIGH PRESSURE ESTABLISHES ITSELF ACROSS THE NORTHEAST.
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE FROM MID-WEEK
ONWARD, WITH THE HIGHEST COVERAGE EXPECTED BY THURSDAY INTO
FRIDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 7 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 342 AM EDT SUNDAY...THE FOG BANKS ARE SETTLING IN OVER MUCH
OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN VERMONT ALONG WITH A FEW OF THE VALLEYS IN
THE ADIRONDACKS. THE IR 11-3.9 SATELLITE IS SHOWING THAT THE FOG
BANK IS QUITE THICK ALONG THE CONNECTICUT RIVER VALLEY. EXPECT
THAT AS DAY BREAK OCCURS TEMPS WILL RAPIDLY INCREASE WITH LIGHT
SOUTHERLY FLOW AND SO THE FOG WILL MIX OUT SHORTLY AFTER SUNRISE.
THEN THE STORY TURNS TO THE HEAT EXPECTED TODAY. AS DEEP LAYER
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION EXPECT PLENTY OF SUN WITH
MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES. 1000-500MB THICKNESSES INCREASE RAPIDLY AND
850 TEMPS WILL WARM TO 16-18C ACROSS THE REGION. THOSE TEMPS ARE
SUPPORTIVE OF SURFACE MAX TEMPS IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S TO NEAR
90F FOR MUCH OF THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY AND THE SAINT LAWRENCE
VALLEY. BASED ON YESTERDAY'S LAKE CHAMPLAIN WATER TEMP OBSERVATION
OF 72F I DID TRY AND TONE BACK TEMPERATURES OVER THE LAKE AND NEAR
SHORE WATERS.

&&

.SHORT TERM /7 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY/...
AS OF 342 AM EDT SUNDAY...AS THE PREVIOUS FORECASTER MENTIONED
THE MAIN STORY WILL BE THE WARM/HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS ACROSS
THE NORTH COUNTRY THROUGH THE EARLY WEEK. A FAIRLY STRONG MEAN
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL DOMINATE FROM THIS EVENING INTO THE MID
WEEK LEAVING DAILY FORECAST MAX TEMPS IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S
BOTH MONDAY AND TUESDAY. MONDAY WILL BE THE HOTTER OF THE TWO DAYS
WITH THE LOWER 90S POSSIBLE IN THE CONNECTICUT RIVER, CHAMPLAIN
AND SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEYS. WITH SURFACE DEWPOINTS RISING TO THE
MID TO UPPER 60S IT WILL FEEL QUITE WARM AND MUGGY AND THEN AS
OVERNIGHT LOWS COOL TO THE MID 60S EXPECT FOG TO BE POSSIBLE AGAIN
MONDAY NIGHT. A RETURN OF SHOWERS IS POSSIBLE ON TUESDAY INTO
WEDNESDAY AS A BROAD UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE CENTRAL US TURNS
OUR FLOW FROM ZONAL TO MORE SOUTHWEST. THAT WILL BRING A INCREASE
OF MOISTURE IN THE LOW AND MID LEVELS LEADING TO INCREASED CLOUDS
AND AS A WEAK BOUNDARY LIFTS NORTH A FEW SCATTERED SHOWERS WILL
BE POSSIBLE.

&&

.LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
AS OF 352 AM EDT SUNDAY...MEAN MID-TROPOSPHERIC RIDGE ALONG THE EAST 
COAST OF THE UNITED STATES WILL MAINTAIN ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES AND HUMID WEATHER CONDITIONS THROUGH MOST OF THE
UPCOMING WORK WEEK...BEFORE TURNING MORE SEASONABLE/LESS HUMID FOR
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.

GOOD RUN-TO-RUN CONSISTENCY IN BOTH 00Z ECMWF AND 00Z GFS...WITH 
SIMILAR SOLUTIONS OFFERED BY BOTH MODELS. IT APPEARS THAT A 
DIGGING...HIGH AMPLITUDE TROUGH ACROSS THE CENTRAL/NRN MS RIVER 
VALLEY WILL ENHANCE LOW-LEVEL SOUTHERLY FLOW ACROSS OUR REGION 
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. WITH 850MB TEMPS NEAR +18C ON 
WEDNESDAY...ANTICIPATE HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S TO LOW 90S...WITH 
SOUTH WINDS 10-20 MPH. DEWPOINTS WILL LIKELY REACH THE UPPER 60S IN 
MOST LOCATIONS. INTENSIFYING P-GRADIENT LIKELY KEEPS SOUTH 
WINDS/MUGGY CONDITIONS WITH TEMPS IN THE 70S FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT. 
MODERATE SOUTH WINDS 15-25 MPH POSSIBLE FOR THURSDAY (AND SIMILIARLY 
HOT/HUMID CONDITIONS). WHILE BEST QG FORCING LIFTS TO OUR NORTH AND 
WEST AS MID-LEVEL TROUGH SHEARS OUT THURSDAY NIGHT...SWD TRAILING 
COLD FRONT WILL EVENTUALLY PROGRESS THROUGH OUR REGION THURSDAY 
AFTERNOON AND/OR THURSDAY NIGHT...BRINGING BEST LIKELIHOOD OF SHOWER 
AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. THE PROLONGED SOUTHERLY FLOW IN ADVANCE 
OF THE COLD FRONT PUSHES PW VALUES TO NEAR 2" PER 00Z GFS ACROSS OUR 
REGION...SO SOME THREAT OF LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL THAT WILL NEED TO 
BE MONITORED WITH THIS SYSTEM LATE THURSDAY/THURSDAY NIGHT. 
WEAKENING DEEP-LAYER FLOW MAY ALSO YEILD SLOW STORM MOTIONS...WHICH 
COULD CONTRIBUTE TO SOME LOCALIZED FLOOD THREAT. HAVE INDICATED A 
PERIOD OF POPS NEAR 60% WITH THIS SYSTEM. SURFACE COLD FRONT 
EVENTUALLY PUSHES THROUGH TO OUR SOUTH AND EAST WITH DECREASING POPS 
ON FRIDAY MORNING, BASED ON CURRENT INDICATIONS. SHOULD SEE 
DEWPOINTS DECREASING BACK INTO THE UPPER 50S ON FRIDAY WITH HIGH 
TEMPS BACK NEAR SEASONABLE AVERAGE IN THE UPR 70S TO LOWER 80S. 
MID-LEVEL HEIGHTS SLOWLY START TO BUILD AGAIN SATURDAY...WITH
DEWPOINTS POTENTIALLY BACK INTO THE LOWER 60S AND HIGH
TEMPERATURES OF 80-85F. SHOULD SEE MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS FRIDAY
AFTERNOON THOUGH SATURDAY.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
THROUGH 12Z MONDAY...AREAS OF DENSE NOCTURNAL FOG AND LIFR
CEILINGS WILL IMPACT SLK/RUT/MPV THROUGH 12-13Z THIS MORNING. AT
MSS/PBG/BTV...OCCASIONAL 3-5SM BR IS POSSIBLE AT TIMES THROUGH
12Z...BUT VFR CONDITIONS GENERALLY PREVAILING. ONCE FOG
DISSIPATES...VFR AND MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES THROUGH THIS
EVENING...WITH ADDITIONAL LIFR NOCTURNAL FOG POSSIBLE 06-12Z
MONDAY ESPECIALLY FOR SLK/MPV. WINDS LIGHT...GENERALLY S-SW 5KTS
OR LESS TODAY...EXCEPT LOCALLY SW 08-10KTS AT MSS THIS
AFTERNOON WITH VALLEY CHANNELED FLOW...AND SE AT PBG WITH LAKE
BREEZE.

OUTLOOK 12Z MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY AS WEAK
FRONTAL BOUNDARY WASHES OUT NEAR THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER.
ADDITIONAL DAYTIME SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE WITH HUMID AIR
MASS IN PLACE THROUGH THURSDAY AFTERNOON. ANY SHOWERS OR
THUNDERSTORMS COULD RESULT IN BRIEF INTERVALS OF MVFR/IFR
CONDITIONS...BUT GENERALLY VFR ON BALANCE FOR THE PERIOD.

&&
