Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
442 AM EDT Sun Mar 25 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
A building ridge of high pressure both aloft and at the surface
will produce dry conditions with warming temperatures for early
this upcoming week. A cloudy start today will end with plenty of
sunshine and temperatures in the 30s. The combination of clear
skies and light winds will produce cold temperatures tonight,
before values warm into the mid 30s to lower 40s Monday and mid
40s to lower 50s on Tuesday. The next system will provide the
region with a cold rain on Tuesday Night into Wednesday with
a wintry mix possible in the higher terrain.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/...
As of 424 AM EDT Sunday...Forecast challenge today will be how
quickly clouds dissipate...followed by temps thru the near term
period. Synoptic setup features mid/upper level trof prevailing
across the ne conus with decaying ribbon of mid level moisture
associated with easterly 925mb to 700mb flow. Soundings and
latest 850 to 700mb rh fields show best/deepest moisture across
our cwa thru 15z...before quickly shifting south by 18z. In
addition...the building heights aloft and developing sfc high
pres from southern Canada will help to advect much drier air
into our cwa by this aftn. So expecting mostly cloudy skies this
morning will quickly give away to mostly sunny this aftn...as
deep dry layer builds overhead. In addition...thinking clouds
will impact rate of rise in the temp department this morning
with values mainly in the mid 20s to lower 30s...but warm into
the mid 30s to lower 40s by mid to late aftn. Progged 850mb to
925mb temps are 2 to 3 degrees warmer than yesterdays with
values between -8c and -10c...supporting this thinking.

Tonight...1040mb high pres located over northern Maine with
building mid/upper level ridge will produce clear skies and
light north/northeast winds. This combined with snow pack,
especially mountain valleys will result in temps quickly
dropping after sunset. Have continued trends of previous couple
of fcsts and went 4 to 8 degrees colder than the coldest
guidance. This idea supports near 0f at slk/nek with 10f colder
valleys of central vt to mid/upper teens cpv/slv. Given recent
trends at slk, would not be surprised if they drop between -4f
and -8f by 11z Monday...even with some of the 925mb temps. 

Monday...temps warm quickly under mostly sunny skies and light
northeast winds. Ideal sugaring weather will continue with
warming days and cool nights. Progged 850mb temps warm another 
1 to 2 degrees by 18z Monday...supporting highs upper 30s to mid
40s Valleys and mid/upper 20s on the summits.

&&

.SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/...
As of 440 AM EDT Sunday...The weather in the short term will be 
dominated by ridging aloft and high pressure at the surface 
centered over the Canadian Maritimes. This setup will put the 
forecast area solidly in southwesterly return flow behind the 
high, resulting in increasing warm air/moisture advection 
through midweek. Monday night will be the last clear night for a
while before the better moisture arrives Tuesday/Tuesday night.
Looking at one last night of fairly effective radiational 
cooling Monday night, however thinking a slight increase of 
winds (due to the tightening pressure gradient behind the 
departing high) and the generally warmer air mass moving in will
keep overnight temperatures 5-10 degrees F warmer than Sunday 
night. Look for overnight temps in the 20s in valley locations 
and the teens in the northern Adirondacks and eastern Vermont. 

Tuesday should be a pretty nice day overall. Increasing
southwesterly flow will allow daytime temperatures to warm to
around 50 in valley locations. High clouds will move into the
area, increasing and thickening throughout the day. A warm front
will push through Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, bringing with
it some precipitation. Strengthening southwesterly winds will
accompany the precipitation as a low level jet sets up overhead.
The strong southwesterly flow will cause some of the
precipitation to be downsloped in typical locations in the lee
of the mountains. Most of the precipitation that does make it to
the surface will fall as a cold rain, however the northern
Adirondacks along with the Green Mountains could see some wintry
mix Tuesday night.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
As of 440 AM EDT Sunday...Wednesday morning, temperatures will 
warm enough through the forecast area to support a predominant 
precipitation type of rain. Temperatures will be in the mid to 
upper 40s during the daytime, and only fall into the 30s/low 40s 
Wednesday night. Thursday morning, a cold front will push 
through, followed by a brief break in the precipitation during 
the daytime hours as some drier air moves in. 850 temperatures 
will only cool a few degrees behind the frontal passage however,
and as some sunshine is able to break through during the day, 
would expect temperatures to warm to the low 50s during the day.

Thursday night into Friday morning, a southern stream shortwave
moving through the central US will phase with northern stream
energy and trigger the development of a surface low pressure
system in the lower Mississippi River Valley. This low will
track northeast, moving through New England/southern Quebec
during the day Friday and bring us another round of
precipitation to close out the work week. Models have yet to
come to a consensus on the track of the low, which will have
implications on precipitation type and timing for our area,
however the most likely scenario at this point looks like a cold
rain during the day Friday that will transition to some snow
Friday night. This system is still almost a week away, so much
could change during this time. Saturday will be colder as
northwesterly flow commences behind the departing system. 

&&

.AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
Through 06Z Monday...Current radar and obs show a band of light
snow impacting northern/eastern Vt this morning with vis between
3-5sm. The best mid level moisture continues to be progged from
the eastern dacks into VT...while best upper level forcing from
s/w energy is located over northern NY. Based on progged
NAM/HRRR and BTV 4km composite reflectivity thinking a band of
light snow will impact pbg/btv/mpv and slk between 06-09z this
morning. Have continued to utilize tempo with mvfr vis and cigs
expected. A brief 20 to 30 minute window of ifr vis of 1 to 2sm
possible at mpv...but confidence is low given dry airmass in low
levels. Otherwise...lingering light snow will dissipate by
sunrise with cigs quickly becoming vfr by midday. Expect vfr
conditions from 16z thru 06z Monday for all taf sites with
north/northeast winds 5 to 10 knots...becoming light trrn driven
overnight. 

Outlook...

Monday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Monday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Tuesday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Slight chance
SHRA, Slight chance SHSN.
Wednesday: MVFR. Chance SHRA.
Wednesday Night: Mainly MVFR, with areas IFR possible. Chance
SHRA.
Thursday: MVFR/IFR conditions possible. Chance SHRA.
