Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
406 AM EDT Tue Mar 28 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Low pressure tracking eastward across central Quebec this 
morning will push a cold front through the North Country this 
afternoon with scattered showers developing from mid-day through
this evening. Behind the front, some scattered snow showers are
expected tonight into Wednesday, with drier conditions on 
Thursday as a ridge of high pressure builds over the region. 
Unsettled weather returns for the end of the week and into the 
weekend though, as another storm system will bring valley rain 
and mountain snow to the area Friday into Saturday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
As of 406 AM EDT Tuesday...Little overall change from previous 
forecast thinking as the North Country will be in between mid- 
level troughs today, one to our south and another to our north. 
Northern trough and associated surface low will sag southward 
through the day dragging a cold front into the forecast area 
this afternoon and tonight. Abundant low level moisture 
currently over the area combined with some additional moisture 
from the southern stream system and frontal lift will aid in 
developing scattered rain showers across the region today. 
Precip will come in 2 waves with the first round shifting from 
the St. Lawrence Valley this morning into northern portions of 
New York and the northern Champlain Valley before additional 
showers develop across more of the forecast area this afternoon 
and evening. Based on current upstream radar and modeled 
reflectivity expect showers to be scattered in nature and hit or
miss in any one single location. Temps will continue to run 
mild with highs ranging through the 40s with a couple of spot 
50s possible.

For tonight, aforementioned cold front slips through the region
with and lingering precipitation transitioning from rain to snow
showers, especially across the higher terrain. Modeled Froude 
numbers show increasing blocked flow overnight with winds 
shifting to the northwest and this combined with the parent
upper trough and weak shortwave energy passing through supports
some locally enhanced precipitation across the western slopes of
the Greens backing up all the way into the northern Champlain 
Valley late tonight into early Wednesday, before becoming 
unblocked by Wednesday afternoon. Ptype will be all snow by this
time with low temps tonight around freezing, so some light 
accumulations are possible, perhaps up to an inch in the lower 
elevations and a couple inches over the high peaks. Temps rise 
Wednesday afternoon into the mid 30s to low 40s so any precip 
leftover by that time will transition back to a rain/snow mix.

&&

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
As of 340 AM EDT Tuesday....The upper trough and attendant 
backside energy then depart east on Wednesday night with broad, 
albeit short-lived ridging at lower and mid levels building 
across the area later at night into Thursday. As such, any 
northern mountain snow showers/flurries will gradually end 
Wednesday night setting the stage for a partly to mostly sunny 
day on Thursday. Low temperatures a bit tricky and will be 
dependent on amount of clearing or lack thereof, but generally 
stuck with blended guidance showing values in the 20s to locally
near 30 in the Champlain Valley and slightly cooler in northern
NY where clearing probabilities are higher. Thursday highs from
the upper 30s to mid 40s still look on track as advertised by 
prior forecast.

&&

.LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...
As of 340 AM EDT Tuesday...By Thursday night mainly clear skies
gradually give way to increasing mid and higher level clouds as
first signs of next system arrive on warm thermal advection 
rippling in aloft. There will be increasing chances of light 
snows across our far southwestern counties toward morning, but 
uncertainty on arrival time of precipitation puts low confidence
on any potential minor accumulations in these areas through 
sunrise Friday. Lows mainly in the 20s.

By Friday into Friday night, deeper moisture will ride northeast 
into our area on increasing warm thermal advection and a fairly 
robust southwesterly 850 mb jet as low pressure tracks northeast 
from the Ohio Valley. Thus will continue the idea of widespread 
precipitation arriving southwest to northeast over time into Friday 
evening as highs top out from the upper 30s to lower 40s. Depending 
on arrival time, some of the morning precipitation may fall in the 
form of wet snow across the southwestern half of the forecast area 
before a transition to all rain below 1500 feet by late 
morning/early afternoon. Any accumulations should be minor to 
negligible. Higher up, precipitation may fall as a mix of rain/snow 
or even all snow for elevations above 2500 feet given wet bulbing 
processes and 850 mb temperatures hovering around the 0C mark give 
or take a degree or two. Several inches of wet snow will be possible 
in these higher elevation areas, especially by Friday night as 
thermal profiles cool slightly and snow levels lower accordingly. A 
mix with wet snow may even occur to the Champlain/St. Lawrence 
Valley floors for a brief while Friday night, but little if any 
accumulation is expected.

Looking further out, a general trend toward quiet weather is 
expected on Saturday as scattered rain/snow shower activity 
gradually tapers off and sets the stage for a mainly dry 
Sunday/Monday. Temperatures will remain close to seasonal early 
April norms with highs ranging through the 40s and overnight lows in 
the 20s to lower 30s.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Through 06Z Wednesday...A mix of MVFR to VLIFR will continue
through the overnight hours and into the morning hours before a
slight lift to MVFR/IFR through the remainder of the period.
Some scattered rain showers are likely from mid-morning through
the evening as a cold front shifts into the region with brief 
reductions in vsby. Light winds shift to the northwest at
5-10 knots behind the front after 18Z across northern New York 
and after 21Z across Vermont.

Outlook 06Z Wednesday through Saturday...

06Z Wednesday through 00Z Thursday...MVFR/IFR in scattered scattered
rain/snow showers, mainly across central/northern Vermont.

00Z Thursday through 12Z Thursday...Mainly VFR. Isolated snow 
showers over higher terrain.

12Z Thursday through 12Z Friday...VFR under high pressure.

12Z Friday through 00Z Sunday...Areas of MVFR/IFR in rain and 
snow.

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