Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
309 AM EDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
A strong area of high pressure will crest over the North Country
this afternoon bringing mostly sunny conditions and light winds.
Temperatures will moderate a bit, with daytime highs mainly in
the upper 20s to lower 30s. A warm front will approach from the
southwest on Friday, with overcast skies and a developing wintry
mix across the North Country. Some light accumulations of snow
and sleet are expected Friday morning before transitioning to
mostly rain later in the day. The frontal zone will become
quasi-stationary near or just south of our region over the
weekend, with the potential for additional mixed wintry
precipitation later in the weekend.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 8 PM THIS EVENING/...
As of 152 AM EDT Thursday...Strong sfc anticyclone (1036mb) in 
control today as it translates ewd across the nern CONUS. This 
feature will bring generally clear skies and lighter NW winds 
(5-10mph). A chilly start at sunrise with readings mainly in the
single digits, and locally below zero in the Adirondacks (-12F 
at SLK) and far nern VT. Air mass will undergo some moderation
today, aided by relatively high late March sun angle. Looking 
for afternoon highs 27-32F, warmest in the Champlain/St. 
Lawrence/CT river valleys. PoPs NIL, but will see some 
increasing cirrus clouds late this afternoon into this evening.

&&

.SHORT TERM /8 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
As of 200 AM EDT Thursday....High pressure shifts east of our
longitude overnight and into the Gulf of Maine by 09-12z Friday.
This will allow for a light S-SW return flow to develop. Aloft,
will see a warm front approaching from wrn NY and sern Ontario,
and increasing 850-700mb WAA will result in thickening mid-level
overcast. These factors will keep overnight temperatures
generally in the mid teens to lower 20s, with a tendency for a
slow rise in temps toward daybreak Friday, especially west of
the Green Mtns. 

Moderately strong 850-700mb WAA with approaching warm front
brings developing stratiform precipitation beginning during
Friday morning from SW-NE. It appears thermal profiles will
initially support snow, with a transition to sleet/rain as the
day progresses. Subfreezing thermal profiles will persist 
longest across central/ern VT and in the nrn Adirondacks, where 
1-3" of wet snow/sleet are forecast. Should see generally 1" or
less wet snow in the Champlain Valley as PBL temperatures warm 
more quickly thru the 30s. Could see some minor impacts to 
travel especially around the time of onset of the mixed wintry 
precipitation (and especially away from the Champlain Valley), 
and will continue to highlight in the Hazardous Weather Outlook.
Afternoon highs on Friday generally 36-39F, except 33-34F 
across portions of ern/nern VT. 

First wave of low-level WAA passes to our east Friday
evening/night, but E-W oriented low-level frontal zone will 
become quasi-stationary across nrn NY/nrn VT. May be a tendency
for a shallow nly wind shift after midnight with strong high 
pressure building into wrn Quebec, so we'll need to monitor 
trends with the frontal position overnight with possible shallow
CAA near the intl border. Anticipate continued overcast skies, 
but with just very light rain/drizzle or isolated pockets of 
snow/sleet/freezing drizzle across far nrn areas. Temperatures
will generally hold in the low-mid 30s.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
As of 309 AM EDT Thursday...Interesting forecast with rather 
active period expected and above normal chances for mixed 
precipitation. Large high builds down from Canada on Saturday 
and pushes surface boundary southward out of the area...which 
will help bring precipitation to an end during the morning 
hours. Highs will range from the mid 30s along the Canadian 
border to the upper 30s and mid 40s elsewhere. Northwest flow 
aloft Saturday night continue to bring colder and drier air into
the region. An upper trough will move east from the Ohio Valley
and this will allow the boundary that moved out of our area on 
Saturday to return northward into our region and enhance the 
potential for precipitation...especially Sunday afternoon and 
night. Thermal profile suggests mixed precipitation with surface
cold air holding in the longest across eastern Vermont Sunday 
night into Monday. Precipitation should become rather widespread
Sunday night into the first part of Monday as the trough moves 
across the area. Will have to monitor this situation closely in 
case there will be a need for a winter weather advisory. There 
will be a brief respite in precipitation Monday night into the 
first part of Tuesday...but another trough of low pressure will 
move toward the region later Tuesday into Wednesday and bring 
more precipitation to the area. Still cannot rule out some mixed
precipitation...but at this time looking at either rain or snow
with this system. The precipitation should be fairly widespread
as well given the strength of the upper trough moving into the 
region.

&&

.AVIATION /07Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Through 12Z Friday...VFR conditions through the period. Strong 
surface high pressure will crest over NY and New England during 
the daylight hours Thursday. Will see light (5-10kt) NW winds 
redevelop after sunrise, and then switch into the S-SE tonight 
once the ridge axis shifts to our east. Will see an increase in 
mid-upr level clouds this evening through tonight, with ceilings
falling to near 7-8kft toward 12Z Friday. Any precipitation 
with approaching warm front is expected to hold off until during
the daylight hours on Friday. 

Outlook 12Z Friday through Monday...A warm front will bring
mixed wintry precipitation to the North Country Friday morning,
with a trend toward mainly rain by afternoon. Looking for
widespread MVFR conditions with intervals of IFR and HIR TRRN
OBSCD. Frontal zone becomes quasi-stationary across our region
over the weekend. It may settle southward just enough to allow
for VFR conditions Saturday, followed by a redevelopment of a
wintry mix Sunday into Sunday night with mainly MVFR/IFR conds.

&&

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