Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
436 AM EDT Wed Jun 29 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
Lingering showers across eastern Vermont dissipate early this
morning. Expect a partly to mostly cloudy day with scattered
afternoon showers and thunderstorms, with showers dissipating by
sunset. Mostly sunny skies anticipated for Thursday. The next
period of more active weather is on Friday with a cold frontal
passage triggering showers and thunderstorms. Some may become
strong on Friday. The Independence Day weekend outlook looks
favorable for outdoor plans.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
As of 435 AM EDT Tuesday...After yesterday's period of more
active weather, we are still contending with some leftover lower
clouds and light showers across eastern VT on the warm side of a
cold front. These lingering showers should be coming to an end
into the morning commute, but the lower overcast likely will be
harder to shake free of, likely not until mid to late morning.
Elsewhere, skies are generally partly to mostly cloudy. Expect
that most everywhere should see at least some peeks or breaks of
sun by the afternoon. Any breaks should fill back in with cumulus
clouds though, as we are still under the influence of an upper
trough that will shift its way across our area this afternoon.
There should be enough daytime heating to generate at least
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.
This activity will be solely driven by diurnal heating and lift
along terrain. Instability values are lower than yesterday -
between 650 J/kg on the GFS to 1200 J/kg on the bullish NAM, and
deep shear is even weaker as well around 15 to 20 knots. However,
think a few stronger cells might be capable of producing some
small hail given that wet- bulb zero heights are around 8000-10000
ft. So opted for afternoon scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms with PoPs in the 20-40% range, but declined on any
enhanced wording for small hail as the coverage should be limited.
I did mention in the HWO, however. Think eastern and northeast VT
stands the best shot at seeing any thunderstorms today as moisture
levels/dewpoints are highest there. Looking at highs today in the
70s.

Cold front and its windshift clears the area early tonight with
high pressure ridging into the area. Should see strong radiational
cooling and dewpoints dropping once diurnal clouds/showers burn
off to clear skies. Given that many areas saw at least some rain
and with winds being so light, I'd expect there to be at least
some radiational fog in the prone river valleys. It may
potentially extend elsewhere, but for now I've included patchy fog
for just the river valleys tonight. Lows range from mid/upper 40s
in the Adirondacks to the mid to upper 50s in the Champlain
Valley.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
As of 403 AM EDT Wednesday...A weak ridge of high pressure will
build east from the Ohio valley and Great Lakes on Thursday and
will remain over the region through early Friday, with fair and
dry weather expected. On Friday, models showing an upper trough
and a cold front swinging southeast across the Great Lakes. Models
also showing this upper trough will pull additional moisture
northward from the mid-Atlantic states on Friday. GFS model
showing deep layer shear of 35-40 knots in the 0-6km layer by
Friday afternoon, as well as most unstable cape values of
1500-2300 j/kg by late Friday afternoon. SPC has the region in a
marginal risk for severe thunderstorms Friday afternoon. Will hold
off on any enhanced wording for Friday at this time, and will let
later shifts reevaluate this. Shower and thunderstorm activity to
continue into early Friday night.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 403 AM EDT Wednesday...An upper trough will linger over the
region on Saturday, so will keep in a chance for showers. Could be
some residual showers on Sunday near the international border, but
most of the region should remain dry on Sunday. Models in good
agreement from Sunday night through Tuesday as a ridge of high
pressure builds into the region, with fair and dry weather
expected.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z Wednesday THROUGH Sunday/...
Through 06Z Thursday...Mix of flight categories from VFR to LIFR
across the airports due to leftover showers across eastern VT and
developing mist or light fog with the saturated conditions.
Still some lightning being reported near VSF and LEB but should
remain distant from RUT and MPV. Expect changeable flight
category conditions to continue through at least 11z. As showers
clear expect some areas of 1 to 2 SM mist/fog to set up and this
has already occurred at BTV and MSS and likely also the case at
SLK. Winds through 12z will be light and variable. 

General improving conditions to VFR early Wednesday morning. As
skies clear and stronger diurnal heating begins, expect there to
be some scattered showers/possible thunderstorms. Could see brief
MVFR cig and MVFR/IFR visby reductions in any thunderstorms.
Coverage and start time remain unclear so I've treated as VCSH
for now with hopefully more clarity by the 12z TAF issuance. This
activity is diurnally driven and should end by sunset. Winds
generally light northwesterly under 5 kts.

Outlook 06z thursday through Sunday...

00z Thursday through 12z Friday...VFR with LIFR radiational fog
likely at MPV and SLK Thursday night.

12z Friday through 12z Saturday...VFR trending MVFR/IFR as a cold
front sparks showers/possible t-storms.

12z Saturday through 00z Sunday...Generally VFR, but brief
VFR/MVFR showers possible at PBG, BTV and MPV as upper trough
passes.

00z Sunday onward...VFR under high pressure. Possible evening LIFR
fog with the best chance at SLK.

&&

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