Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
625 AM EST Sat Nov 18 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Strong low pressure will pass through the region tonight into 
Sunday with widespread rainfall and milder temperatures. Rain 
will taper to snow showers on Sunday afternoon as much colder 
air surges back into the area along with gusty winds. The 
general weather pattern quiets down from Monday onward into much
of next week with mainly dry and seasonably cold weather 
expected for the Thanksgiving holiday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/...
As of 337 AM EST Saturday...Quite the variety of weather is 
expected over the next 36 hours as deepening low pressure tracks
from the Ohio Valley into the St. Lawrence Valley by Sunday 
morning. From a broader perspective the overall theme of the 
forecast remains the same with thickening clouds expected today 
before widespread precipitation arrives by early evening into 
the overnight hours. Strengthening southerly flow and warm 
thermal advective processes will push boundary layer 
temperatures above freezing in most locales by mid to late 
afternoon such that mainly a steady light rain is expected. The 
only exception would be a brief period of mixed precipitation at
onset at mountain summit level and possibly across portions of 
far northeastern VT. Given the strength of the synoptic 
background southerly flow have generally downplayed this threat 
however. Highs today to top out in the upper 30s to mid 40s for 
most spots with readings holding steady in VT overnight, and 
falling through the 30s toward morning across northern NY as 
cold front sweeps through.

By Sunday the cold front surges quickly across the remainder of the 
forecast area, clearing well east by afternoon as the ~980 mb 
surface low races northeast toward the Gulf of St. Lawrence by early 
evening. Robust 3-hourly pressure rises behind the frontal boundary 
should ensure a windy afternoon as steadier rains transition to snow 
showers and flow trends northwesterly. Accumulations should be 
minor, though amounts from a dusting to 2 inches will be possible 
across the St. Lawrence Valley and higher terrain of the 
Adirondacks/Greens by early evening. Using an upward adjustment 
factor from 160-190 percent yields gusts into the 30 to 45 mph range 
with highest gusts in favored westerly downslope areas of the 
eastern Adirondacks and eastern Greens/CT River Valley. Temperatures 
will take on a typical cool-season non-diurnal trend as highs from 
the upper 30s to mid 40s will be reached in the morning before 
values slowly fall into the upper 20s to mid 30s by late
afternoon.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...
As of 330 AM EST Saturday...Sunday night will basically be the 
tail end of the system which brings wind and precipitation 
earlier in the day. Snow showers will be ending though gusty 
winds will continue. Expecting 20-30 mph gusts nearly everywhere
as cold air advection keeps the boundary layer mixed. Lows will
bottom out in the teens to 20s, so wind chills will be 
primarily in the single digits. Will have some lake effect snow 
showers on Monday in the Southern St Lawrence valley and 
Northern Adirondacks. High temperatures on Monday will be about 
ten degrees colder than seasonal normals, mainly 20s and lower 
30s. Winds will remain pretty gusty on Monday and conditions 
will be blustery. Winds will begin to slack off towards evening 
with surface ridge building over the area.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
As of 345 AM EST Saturday...Monday night through Tuesday night
will feature quieter weather. Southwesterly flow will bring some
warmer temperatures to the North Country. Fairly clear skies
with temperatures back around seasonal normals once again. A
weak cold front will cross the region on Wednesday and some
light rain or snow showers are expected, especially across the
higher terrain. At this point looks like very minimal impact.
Thanksgiving day will be cooler and dry. Flurries are possible
with westerly flow off the lakes, though nothing significant is
expected. Thursday night into Friday could see another weak
shortwave bring some more light rain or snow showers. No major
storms on the horizon at this time.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Through 12Z Sunday...Mainly VFR through 00Z Sunday with 
thickening mid/high cloud cover as light winds trend 
south/southeasterly at 5 to 10 kts (northeasterly at KMSS). 
After 00Z Sunday widespread rain affects all terminals with 
ceilings lowering to MVFR in the 015-025 AGL range in general. 
Some occasional VFR may continue at KBTV/KPBG/KRUT. Winds 
continue south to southeasterly from 5 to 10 kts (northeasterly 
at KMSS) and will trend modestly gusty into the 13 to 18 kt 
range at KRUT/KBTV/KPBG/KSLK terminals late.

Outlook...

Sunday: Mainly MVFR, with local IFR possible. Windy with gusts to
35 kt. Definite RA, Chance SHRA, Chance SHSN.
Sunday Night: VFR. Chance SHSN.
Monday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Slight chance SHSN.
Monday Night: Mainly VFR, with areas MVFR possible. NO SIG WX.
Tuesday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHRA,
Chance SHSN.
Wednesday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Slight chance
SHRA, Slight chance SHSN.

&&

.MARINE...
As of 337 AM EST Saturday...A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect 
for today as southerly winds increase into the 15 to 25 knot 
range by this afternoon and significant wave heights build into 
the 2 to 4 foot range with a moderate chop. These conditions may
prove hazardous to those operating small craft, especially on 
the broad lake and in bays/inlets with southerly exposures. 
Gusty south winds will gradually abate tonight, though increase 
sharply from the northwest by Sunday as a strong cold front 
sweeps across the area.

&&

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