Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
613 AM EST Wed Nov 7 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Another day of gusty winds and mild temperatures is expected 
across the North Country today. These gusty winds will diminish
heading into the evening as the pressure gradient weakens and a
period of calmer weather is expected on Thursday. A developing
low pressure system will track just to our west on Friday and
bring widespread rainfall at sea level and a mix of rain, sleet,
freezing rain and snow at elevations above 2500 ft. Precipitation
will taper off heading into Saturday but continued showers are 
possible throughout the weekend with temperatures cooling off
through the weekend as well.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH THURSDAY/...
As of 613 AM EST Wednesday...No major changes with the forecast
package. Shower activity continues on the western slopes of the
Adirondacks with Saranac Lake reporting several bouts of rain 
showers over the past few hours. The dewpoint depression in the 
Champlain Valley is up to 14 degrees which should keep much of 
Vermont on the dry side throughout the day. Gusty winds continue
across the North Country with southwesterly winds gusting in 
the 20 to 30 mph range. Even with periods of sun this afternoon,
temperatures should largely be pretty steady with temperatures 
in the mid 40s to mid 50s.

Previous Discussion...Winds were a little slow to ramp up
overnight but as soon as surface observations began to show pressure
rises, winds quickly began gusting in the 20 to 30 mph range across
the North Country. The winner continues to be the Saint Lawrence
Valley as the SW to NE oriented valley is acting to channel the
stronger winds mixing down from the low level jet currently over the
region. The depth of the mixed layer still remains very shallow at
around 1000 to 1500 feet. However, the depth of the mixing layer
will increase slightly during the morning and afternoon hours which
will allow for gusty winds to continue and even strengthen a little.
The combination of weak cold air advection (CAA) and increasing
surface temperatures will act to steepen low level lapse rates which
will help mix more wind down to the surface. However, the core of
stronger winds off the surface will slowly shift eastward throughout
the day which will bring an end to the gusty winds come nightfall
across much of the North Country.

As for precipitation, moisture remain trapped on the western slopes
of the Adirondack Mountains this morning based on satellite and
radar imagery. The southwesterly flow aloft, which is perpendicular
to the Adirondacks, is still producing a downslope component over
the Champlain Valley (same over eastern VT east of the Green
Mountains) and has caused breaks in the clouds. Dewpoint depressions
have been increasing through the overnight hours so it appears
rather unlikely that any precipitation is able to make it east of
the Adirondack Mountains today.

Thursday should be a pretty decent day across the region with
temperatures near normal for the most part with breaks in the clouds
with some sun. Colder air will continue to filter in aloft as an
upper level trough pivots over the region but the lack of 
moisture should lead to a drier day across the North Country.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
As of 356 AM EST Wednesday...Overall little change from what we've
been highlighting for the end of the work week and into the first
half of the weekend with high confidence that we'll see a widespread
precipitation event Friday through Saturday. Synoptic setup features
a broad longwave trough over the entire CONUS east of the Sierras
and a sharp shortwave trough lifting out of the Great Plains Friday
and through northern New England on Saturday. Deterministic guidance
continues to show a double-barrel low pressure system forms at the
surface Friday afternoon/night with the primary low over the eastern
Great Lakes and secondary low off the New England coastal waters.
This puts the North Country in a favorable convergence zone which
will lead to widespread precipitation developing from southwest to
northeast through the day Friday, and over the entire region Friday
night. Main difference from previous runs is the expected ptype
where forecast soundings continue to develop a mid-level warm nose
Friday evening into the early overnight which introduces the threat
for some mixed precip from mid-slope to the summits. Below about
2000 feet mainly rain is expected, but across the higher elevations
snow at the onset will likely mix with sleet and/or freezing rain
Friday night before transitioning back to snow early Saturday. Too
early to nail down the finer details, but the potential exists for
up to 4" of snow and 1-2 tenths of an inch of ice.

By Saturday morning, the double-barrel low will be pushing
north/northeast of the region with precipitation becoming more
orographic in nature and back to a valley rain and mountain snow
mix. Could see some additional snow accumulations across the higher
terrain, especially downwind of Lake Ontario where some lake
enhanced moisture will help to produce additional snow showers in
the Adirondacks and northern Vermont above 1000 feet. Precip tapers
off Saturday night as the low(s) pull farther northeast of the
region and high pressure begins to build in from the west/southwest.

&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 356 AM EST Wednesday...Quieter weather is expected for the
latter half of the weekend and into Monday as a brief ridge of high
pressure looks to build in from the west/southwest. Temperatures
will be seasonally cool with highs only in the 30s and lows in the
teens and 20s. Beyond Monday, the pattern looks to become active
again with the potential for a strong system to affect the region
Monday night into mid-week. Lots of uncertainty right now with this
system with low tracks all over the place from outside the benchmark
to western New England so confidence is very low as to whether we
see precipitation and what that precip could be. Stay tuned.

&&

.AVIATION /11Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Through 12Z Thursday...VFR conditions have continued through 
the early morning hours with the exception of KSLK as moisture 
continues to upslope over the western slopes of the Adirondack 
Mountains. This moisture will be difficult to scour out, thus 
ceilings ranging from 1200 to 2200 ft are likely through the 
majority of the day with no real improvement until after 21Z. 
The remaining sites will remain VFR with ceilings gradually 
increasing through the afternoon before dropping to around 5000 
ft after 06Z Thursday. Gusty winds will be the primary concern 
today as southwesterly winds will be gusting in the 15 to 28 kt 
range through most of the day. Winds will begin to taper off 
around 00Z but KMSS will likely hold onto the gusty winds 
thought the forecast package. 

Outlook...

Thursday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Thursday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Friday: VFR. Definite RA.
Friday Night: Mainly MVFR, with local IFR possible. Definite RA,
Definite FZRA.
Saturday: Mainly VFR, with areas MVFR possible. Windy with gusts
to 30 kt. Chance SHRA, Chance SHSN.
Saturday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Slight
chance SHSN.
Veterans Day: VFR. NO SIG WX.

&&

.MARINE...
Lake wind advisory in effect today for southwest winds of 15 to
25 knots. These winds will likely persist through tonight with 
seas 1 to 3 feet, except localized waves near 4 feet in the open
waters.

&&

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