AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
647 AM EST WED FEB 10 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
A WEAK SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AREA AND AN UPPER TROUGH OVER THE
EASTERN GREAT LAKES WILL COMBINE TO BRING PERIODS OF LIGHT SNOW TO
THE NORTH COUNTRY TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY. A STRONG ARCTIC COLD
FRONT WILL MOVE SOUTH FROM CANADA ON FRIDAY AND WILL BRING A
CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS TO THE REGION ON FRIDAY. THIS ARCTIC COLD
FRONT WILL BRING THE COLDEST AIR OF THE WINTER SEASON SO
FAR...WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES SATURDAY AND SUNDAY IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS ABOVE ZERO...AND BELOW ZERO TEMPERATURES SATURDAY NIGHT AND
SUNDAY NIGHT. WIND CHILL ADVISORIES OR WIND CHILL WARNINGS MAY BE
NEEDED FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 647 AM EST WEDNESDAY...CURRENT FORECAST IN GOOD SHAPE AT
THIS TIME...SO NO CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE.

PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FROM 358 AM EST WEDNESDAY...PERIODS OF LIGHT
SNOW WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY TODAY AND TONIGHT AS
AN UPPER TROUGH OVER THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES AND A WEAK SURFACE
LOW PRESSURE AREA WILL COMBINE TO BRING PERIODS OF LIGHT SNOW TO
THE REGION. MOS GUIDANCE SHOWING HIGHER POPS ACROSS THE REGION
THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY TONIGHT SO EXPECTING A STEADY BAND OF
LIGHT SNOW TO DEVELOP LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO EARLY
TONIGHT. EXPECTING MAINLY CLOUDY SKIES THIS MORNING WITH
OCCASIONAL LIGHT SNOW AT TIMES. HAVE GONE A BIT WARMER THAN MOS
GUIDANCE TONIGHT FOR MIN TEMPERATURES GIVEN EXPECTED CLOUD COVER.
COULD SEE AROUND 2 TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW ACROSS THE REGION BY LATE
TONIGHT.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
AS OF 329 AM EST WEDNESDAY...UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL MOVE ACROSS OUR
AREA THURSDAY ROUNDING OUT THE BASE OF UPPER TROF. VORTICITY
ADVECTION WILL HELP TO ENHANCE POPS FOR THURSDAY...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AS OUR FORECAST AREA REMAINS UNDER
NORTHWESTERLY UPPER LEVEL FLOW INFLUENCE. COLD AIR ADVECTION AND
FAVORABLE MOISTURE AND LIFT IN THE SNOW GROWTH ZONE...THEREFORE
HAVE LIKELY POPS ALONG THE NORTHWEST FACING SLOPES AND SOME
CATEGORICAL ALONG THE SPINE OF THE GREENS WHERE THESE UPSLOPE SNOW
SHOWERS ARE MOST FAVORABLE. THURSDAY NIGHT POPS LOWER AS WE LOSE
FAVORABLE VORTICITY ADVECTION AND FLOW BECOMES MORE WESTERLY. COLD
AIR ADVECTION CONTINUES THOUGH. ON FRIDAY WILL HAVE A WEAK CLIPPER
TYPE SURFACE LOW CROSS OUR FORECAST AREA...ALONG WITH ANOTHER
SHORTWAVE...AS WELL AS FLOW ACROSS LAKE ONTARIO. WILL SEE SNOW
SHOWERS DEVELOPING...ESPECIALLY ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK.
TEMPERATURES FROM THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY WILL RUN BELOW SEASONAL
NORMALS. MAINLY SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE AND BELOW ZERO THURSDAY NIGHT
WITH TEENS TO AROUND 20 DURING THE DAY.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
AS OF 329 AM EST WEDNESDAY...AN EVEN COLDER AIR MASS MOVES INTO
THE AREA FROM FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY AND OUR REGION WILL BE
THE COLDEST IT HAS BEEN YET THIS WINTER. WITH PERSISTENT UPPER
LEVEL TROF STILL OVER THE EASTERN CONUS WILL HAVE A POLAR VORTEX
MOVE DIRECTLY ACROSS OUR FORECAST AREA...850 TEMPS DROP TO ABOUT
-30 FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. AS THIS COLD AIR PUSHES INTO OUR
REGION WILL SEE POSSIBILITY OF SOME SNOW SQUALLS ON TIGHT
TEMPERATURE GRADIENT. SATURDAY NIGHT WILL BE THE PEAK OF THE
COLDEST AIR IN PLACE AND A RIDGE OF SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE
OVERHEAD. AFTER TEMPS ONLY REACHING THE SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE AND
BELOW ZERO ON SATURDAY...WILL SEE OVERNIGHT MIN TEMPS PLUMMET TO
THE NEGATIVE TEENS AND TWENTIES. THERE WILL BE A THREAT FOR
BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILLS AND HEADLINES MAY BE NECESSARY FOR THE
COLD...FROM LATE FRIDAY NIGHT ALL THE WAY THROUGH SUNDAY...BUT
ESPECIALLY SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY. LATER SUNDAY WITH SURFACE
AND UPPER LEVEL RIDGES BUILDING OVER THE REGION...POLAR VORTEX
SLIDES EASTWARD AND AWAY FROM OUR FORECAST AREA. AS GRADIENT PICKS
UP SUNDAY NIGHT...TEMPS WILL NOT DROP AS FAR AS THEY DID SATURDAY
NIGHT. THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK START OUT WITH QUIET WEATHER AND
TEMPERATURES RETURNING TO ABOVE NORMAL ONCE AGAIN. GFS AND ECMWF
DIVERGE QUITE A BIT FROM MONDAY ONWARD...BOTH SHOWING A SYSTEM TO
POTENTIALLY BRING A RAIN SNOW MIX TO THE NORTH COUNTRY TUESDAY OR
WEDNESDAY. GFS SHOWS THIS SYSTEM ONLY HAVING MINIMAL IMPACT ON OUR
REGION WHILE THE ECMWF SHOWS GREATER EFFECTS FOR OUR AREA WITH A
LOW PRESSURE TRACK CLOSER TO OUR FORECAST AREA. MODELS SHOULD COME
INTO BETTER AGREEMENT AS WE GET CLOSER TO NEXT WEEK.
