Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
636 AM EST Fri Jan 13 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Colder air will be moving into the area today behind a cold front 
that has exited the North Country. High temperatures will be early 
today then falling throughout the day. Clouds will persist this 
morning along with a few mountain snow showers...but clearing will 
take place this afternoon. High pressure builds down from Canada 
tonight and Saturday. This will bring below normal temperatures to 
the area through the entire weekend.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/...
As of 537 AM EST Friday...Added some flurries and sprinkles to
the area through about mid-morning as very light precipitation
is occurring. Otherwise...colder air continues to move into the
area early this morning with cold front now well east of the 
area. Highs will be right at the start of the period as 
temperatures will be gradually falling throughout the day. Still
looking at plenty of cloud cover through the morning hours 
based on satellite showing plenty of clouds still upstream. 
Eventually drier air moves in this afternoon and that should 
help to start a clearing trend. Could also see a few mountain 
snow showers this morning with west to northwest low level flow 
providing a bit of an upslope component.

Skies become clear tonight and winds will taper off as high pressure 
builds into the region. This will set the stage for cold 
temperatures as the larger valleys drop into the single digits with 
below zero readings for the northern Adirondacks and a good portion 
of north central and northeast Vermont. No precipitation is expected 
tonight or Saturday for that matter with high pressure over the 
area. High temperatures on Saturday will be in the mid teens to 
lower 20s.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
As of 343 AM EST Friday...The weekend simply put, will be a big
bubble with no trouble. A broad dome of high pressure will be 
cresting aloft leading to quiet sensible weather and mostly 
clear skies. As the previous forecaster mentioned the NAM does 
hold on to a weak little 925mb shortwave trough bringing some 
moisture to the international border. Given multiple consecutive
model runs showing it, I did add a slight, and I mean very 
slight, 15-17% chance for some light snow flurries across the 
Northeast Kingdom Saturday night.

Marginal warm air advection will occur on Saturday evening so we 
wont see quite as cold temperatures Saturday evening but I still 
anticipate temps falling into the single digits above zero for most 
area overnight.

Sunday remains quiet under the strong 1035mb high. Should be looking 
at clear skies with temps warming into the upper teens to lower
20s.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
As of 343 AM EST Friday...High pressure continues to start the 
week and as the surface high slides offshore, southerly warm air
advection will begin. Our best chance for precip will be as a 
low pressure system tracks up through the Great Lakes region. 
With the low tracking that far west of us, we get into the warm 
sector quickly and the warm air advection remains firmly in 
place. Trends in the model guidance have been to delay when the 
precip arrives so I think the best chance for precip to be on 
Wednesday morning to early afternoon. Given the warming trend 
expect precip type to just be snow melting to rain. Rain will 
continue on through Wednesday before tapering off back to snow 
overnight. Interestingly the 850/925/1000mb zero lines stretch 
all the way up to near James Bay in Canada by 12z Wednesday. 
With all of that warm air, expect max temps in the mid 40s with 
lows hovering around freezing most of the mid week. With those 
temps, I anticipate an early season maple syrup run for those 
interested parties.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z Friday THROUGH Tuesday/...
Through 12Z Saturday...VFR/MVFR ceilings are expected through
the morning hours before drier air moves in and clouds begin to
decrease in areal coverage this afternoon. VFR conditions are
expected as a result with clear skies for tonight. There may be
a few snow showers or flurries this morning...but visibilities
will remain in the VFR category through the period. Gusty west
to northwest winds will exist through about 00z with gusts in
the 15 to 25 knot range before tapering off after 00z.

12z Saturday onward...Primarily VFR with surface high pressure.

&&

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