Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
645 AM EST Fri Dec 8 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Lake effect snow over northern New York and portions of western
Vermont will come to an end today. A brief ridge of high 
pressure will build in this evening through Saturday afternoon, 
allowing for some breaks in the clouds to kick off the weekend. 
By Saturday night however, cloud cover will increase again and a
coastal storm will spread some light snowfall over Vermont. 
Next week will feature continued chances for snow and colder 
temperatures as a series of disturbances move through the area.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/...
As of 600 AM EST Friday...Overall forecast in good shape with 
just some minor tweaks to temperatures and sky cover to match 
current conditions. Otherwise...recent observations show snow 
from the lake effect band continuing to reach all the way east 
to Addison/Washington Counties in Vermont. Radar imagery shows 
the eastern portion of the band to be weakening, so would expect
most of the localized snow over west central Vermont to come to
an end over the next couple of hours. Further west, the lake 
effect band is starting to shift slightly northward into 
southern Saint Lawrence and Franklin Counties in New York. As 
the steering flow gains a stronger southerly component today, 
would expect to see the band continue to shift north over the 
next few hours. Have extended the Lake Effect Snow Warnings in 
effect for southern Saint Lawrence County and Lake Effect Snow 
Advisory in effect for southern Franklin County through 10 AM 
this morning. By late morning, increasing southerly flow will 
limit the fetch over Lake Ontario and precipitation should taper
off through early afternoon. 

Overnight tonight, a brief ridge of high pressure will build over 
the area and allow cloud cover to decrease. Saturday will be 
slightly warmer than Friday as a relatively warmer air mass is 
advected northward. Cloud cover will increase again from east to
west Saturday as a low pressure system moves northeastward off 
the Atlantic Coast. Most of the impacts from this system will 
remain to the east of our forecast area, however southern and 
eastern Vermont will see some light snow spreading through 
starting Saturday evening.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
As of 432 AM EST Friday...Trends in the data suggest western 
edge of deeper moisture will get into Vermont Saturday 
night...especially east of the Green Mountains. Should see an 
inch of two of light snow in this area with lesser amounts over 
western Vermont and next to nothing over northern New York. 
Eventually the upper level trough axis will move in from the 
west and this will increase chances for snow showers on Sunday 
across northern New York while helping to push light snow over 
eastern Vermont east of the area. Enough cloud cover will exist 
over the area as well which will help to keep temperatures 
around seasonal normals with lows in the mid teens to mid 20s 
and highs in the mid 20s to lower 30s.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
As of 432 AM EST Friday...Upper trough discussed in the short 
term will move east of the area Sunday night but region stays in
cyclonic flow aloft and weak shortwave trough moves across the 
area late Sunday night and Monday with some areas seeing a 
chance for snow showers. More noticeable shortwave trough digs 
into the Upper Midwest on Monday and eventually moves into our 
area late Monday night and Tuesday. Synoptic scale forcing 
associated with increasing dynamic support suggests a fairly 
widespread light snow event for the entire area and would not be
surprised to see a few inches of snow for most of northern New 
York and Vermont before best forcing moves east of the area on 
Wednesday. We remain unsettled Thursday and Friday as region 
remains in cyclonic flow aloft. Temperatures will be at or 
slightly below seasonal normals through much of the extended 
period.

&&

.AVIATION /12Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Through 12Z Saturday...Expect generally VFR conditions with a 
brief period of IFR possible at SLK in lake effect snow 
showers between 12-14z. Ceilings across the region will be 
between 5000-7000 feet and as low as 2000 feet at SLK when the 
lake effect band lifts back north this morning. Winds will be 
south to southwesterly winds around 5-10 kts with gusts picking 
up in the Saint Lawrence valley 10-20 kts in the afternoon. 
Ceilings should break up with generally partly cloudy skies by 
later afternoon to early evening with no visibility 
restrictions.

Outlook...

Friday: VFR. Slight chance SHSN.
Friday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Saturday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Saturday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHSN.
Sunday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHSN.
Sunday Night: Mainly VFR, with areas MVFR possible. Chance SHSN.
Monday: Mainly VFR, with areas MVFR possible. Slight chance SHSN.
