Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
349 AM EDT Mon Mar 27 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Unsettled and warmer weather moves into the North Country today
as low pressure moving northward through the Great Lakes pushes
a warm front into the region. Periods of rain and freezing rain
develop this morning before transitioning to all rain by this 
afternoon, and then tapering off tonight. Scattered showers re-
develop Tuesday as the front begins to migrate back southward, 
with some higher elevations snow showers possible Tuesday night 
and Wednesday post frontal passage. High pressure briefly 
returns for Thursday before another storm system looks to affect
the region on Friday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 349 AM EDT Monday...Forecast remains on track for the 
near term with low pressure over the Great Lakes continuing to 
push a warm front into the region. Latest radar trends show some
spotty precipitation working it's way into the North Country 
from the southwest at this time, with a better slug of moisture 
still further upstream over central NY and PA. Current obs show 
warm air has worked it's way in aloft with summit temps in the 
low/mid 30s, and much of the forecast area east the Greens has 
held steady in the mid 30s as well. Colder regions around or 
just below freezing exist east of the Green Mountains as well as
southwest portions of Essex county of New York so this is where
we continue the freezing rain advisory through mid-morning for 
a light glaze. Opted to remove eastern Chittenden and eastern 
Franklin counties from the advisory as temps never dropped out 
of the mid 30s and will only hold steady or slowly climb from 
hereon out. Difficult to say how much impact the freezing rain 
will have on the morning commute though as DOT road sensors show
a lot of locations still holding above freezing, a few slightly
below so the ground isn't overly cold. Nevertheless, any glaze 
that does develop will make travel treacherous. By mid-morning 
surface temps rise enough to transition ptype to plain rain, 
continuing through early afternoon before exiting to the east as
drier mid-level air works into the region. Highs should top out
in the upper 30s east to upper 40s west.

For tonight, aforementioned warm front continues to push towards
the Canadian border with widespread precipitation mainly east of
the region but a few showers here and there are possible as low
levels remain saturated. Abundant clouds and light winds will
keep temps mild in the 30s. On Tuesday, high pressure building
southward from James Bay will begin to push the front back
southward as a cold front with winds shifting to the northwest
through the day. Expect the morning to be mainly dry but moving
into the afternoon scattered showers should develop ahead of the
front with highs pushing into the mid 40s to around 50.

&&

.SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
As of 321 AM EDT Monday....Background flow trends bodily to the
northwest in all areas by Tuesday night as northern stream 
upper trough builds southward into the area. This will drive a 
cold front through the region and with boundary layer 
temperatures cooling a transition to scattered snow showers is 
expected as coverage gradually wanes. Some minor accumulations 
possible across elevated terrain to perhaps an inch or two.

By Wednesday main push of upper trough swings through the region as 
surface high pressure builds south and east from central Ontario. A 
continued threat for scattered rain/snow shower activity will exist, 
mainly across the northern high terrain as temperatures top out in 
the upper 30s to lower 40s for most. A fairly deep boundary layer to 
850 mb under modest cold thermal advection aloft should ensure a 
breezy day with northwesterly gusts in the 15 to 25 mph range as 
skies trend partly sunny for all but the northern Green Mountains by 
the afternoon hours.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
As of 321 AM EDT Monday...Any lingering northern mountain snow 
showers end Wednesday evening with dry weather expected Thursday
into Thursday night as southern nose of Canadian high pressure 
traverses the area. Low temperatures on both nights mainly in 
the 20s with a few upper teens in favored northern mountain 
hollows. Highs on Thursday similar to Wednesday - upper 30s to 
mid 40s.

Next precipitation maker then arrives by Friday into Friday night as 
additional energy tracks northeast from the Ohio Valley/Great Lakes 
area. Global models have trended toward taking this system 
further northward than prior indications and as such have raised
precipitation probabilities accordingly - especially during the
Friday afternoon to Saturday morning time frame. Boundary layer
thermal profiles suggest this will mainly fall as a rain event 
for lower elevations, though with 850 mb temps hovering around 
0C some mix with snow or even all snow may occur across the 
higher terrain above 1500 feet or so, especially Friday night 
when a mix may even reach the valley floors. Time will tell. By 
Saturday steadier precipitation exits east during the morning 
hours as skies remain variably cloudy. Temperatures average near
late March norms with highs Friday/Saturday generally in the 
lower to mid 40s with Friday night lows from the upper 20s to 
mid 30s.

Looking further out a gradual drying trend is expected by the latter 
half of the weekend as surface high pressure is bridged aloft by 
modest upper troughing. Temperatures should remain within 5 degrees 
of typical early April values with highs ranging through the 40s and 
overnight lows from 25 to 35.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
Through 06Z Tuesday...MVFR conditions to persist through the
next 24 hours with IFR possible towards the tail end. Warm
frontal precipitation moves into the region in the next few 
hours predominantly as rain except for FZRA at KMPV through 15Z.
Precip clears the area to the east after 18Z. For winds, mainly
south/southeast except northeast at KMSS at 5-10kts. Some gusts
up to 20-24kts in the Champlain Valley at KRUT/KBTV through
mid-day.

Outlook 06Z Tuesday through Friday...

00Z Tuesday through 00Z Thursday...MVFR/IFR in scattered rain 
showers Monday night, becoming prevailing rain Tuesday, and 
rain/snow Tuesday night and Wednesday. Moderately gusty NW winds
likely Wednesday.

00Z Thursday through 00Z Saturday...Mainly VFR, except for some
scattered MVFR snow showers over the Adirondacks and Green 
Mountains, mainly 00Z Thursday until 00Z Friday.

&&

.BTV WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
VT...Freezing Rain Advisory until 11 AM EDT this morning for VTZ003-
     004-006>008-010-012-018-019.
