Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
415 AM EDT FRI MAY 13 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
A cold front will move slowly east from the eastern Great Lakes
today and will move through the north country late this afternoon
and tonight. This cold front will bring rain showers to the north
country today and early tonight. Another cold front will approach
from the Great lakes on Saturday, and will bring more rain showers
to the north country Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. An
upper low will bring a chance for more rain showers to the region
Sunday and Monday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
AS OF 415 AM EDT Friday...Composite radar loop showing rain
shower across Lake Ontario and western New York state at this
time. These have been slow to move eastward. Expecting skies to
start out partly sunny across the Champlain valley and Vermont
this morning. Expecting rain shower activity to develop across the
northern New York zones late this morning, and then across the
Champlain valley and Vermont this afternoon. Models showing a mid
level dry slot will work into northern New York late this
afternoon with showers coming to an end. Showers will continue
across Vermont and the Champlain valley early tonight, before
ending around midnight. Expecting partly cloudy skies to develop
after midnight.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 330 AM EDT Friday...Active period of weather anticipated
across our region with development of deep/closed 5h trough and
associated potent 5h vort and secondary surface cold front
crossing our forecast area. given the dynamics and solid axis of
850 to 500mb moisture associated with sharp surface
convergence...will continue to mention likely to cat pops on
Saturday. The duration of rain will be 2 to 4 hours as the front
moves from west to east across our region. The combination of
temperatures climbing into the 60s to near 70 degrees ahead of
boundary will combined with cooling temperatures aloft to produce
some instability with CAPE values between 200-500 J/kg and LI's
ranging from -1C to -3C. NAM/GFS indicate the best instability
parameters...along with 0-6KM shear will be across northern
NY...so have mention slight chance of thunder with isolated gusty
winds and small hail possible during the afternoon hours. QPF
values will range between 0.15 to 0.30 with isolated higher
amounts in localized stronger convective elements.

Strong low level cold air advection develops behind boundary by
Sunday with progged 850mb temps dropping between -3C and -5C by
00z Monday. These cooler temperatures combined with favorable
upslope flow and additional 850 to 500mb moisture will produce
more terrain driven precip Saturday night into Monday. Initially
thermal profiles suggest snow levels near summit level on saturday
night...but fall to 1500 feet by 12z Sunday...as 925mb
temperatures approach 0C. Soundings indicating freezing levels
will increase to 2500 feet on Sunday afternoon...before falling
back toward the valley floors on Sunday night. Current thinking
models are a bit overdone in backside qpf amounts...given closed
5H/7H circulation is tracking to our north. Will continue to
mention chance pops in the valleys and likely to cat in the
mountains. snow amounts will vary greatly depending upon elevation
with several inches likely above 1800 feet and up to 4 or 5 inches
possible on the summits by Monday. Low temperatures will be mainly
in the 30s to lower 40s with highs mainly in the 40s on
sunday...except cooler in the mountains.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
AS OF 330 aM EDT friday...a cold northwest flow aloft with
lingering upslope rain and snow showers will continue on monday.
Progged 850mb temps between -4C and -6C support well below normal
highs with values mainly in the 30s mountains to 40s valleys...a
few lower 50s are possible in the lower CT River Valley and
Champlain Valley. temperatures will slowly rebound by Tuesday as
weak surface ridge develops with fast westerly flow aloft. Progged
850mb temperatures warm between -1C and +2C by 18z
Tuesday...supporting upper 40s to lower 60s across our region.
Have noted some uncertainty with timing and magnitude of next 5h
trough dropping down across the Great Lakes and Northeast Conus
for Wednesday into Thursday. GFS indicates the better moisture and
dynamics would stay south of our region...while latest ECMWF shows
a surface boundary with an enhanced ribbon of mid level moisture.
Based on time frame and uncertainty will mention pops at this time
with temperatures still running 4 to 8 degrees below normal.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z Friday THROUGH Tuesday/...
Through 06z Saturday...a cold front will move slowly east from the
eastern Great Lakes today...bringing rain showers to the region.
VFR conditions lowering to mvfr in rain showers today. expecting
condition to improve to vfr by 06z saturday. expecting some
southerly surface wind gusts of 15 to 20 knots to develop between
13z-15z friday and continue to 00z saturday.

Outlook 06z Saturday through Tuesday...
VFR except scattered MVFR in rain showers each day.

&&

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