Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
436 AM EDT Sun Mar 15 2020

.SYNOPSIS...
Dry and seasonably cool conditions will prevail across the 
North Country today and Monday as high pressure builds 
southeastward from Ontario. Near normal temperatures expected
today under light northerly winds. Clear skies and light winds
will drop temperatures tonight into the low teens to single
digits above and below zero. A fast- moving low pressure system
will bring our next chance for a mix of rain and snow showers 
late Monday night into Tuesday. Drier and blustery conditions 
are expected to return on Wednesday.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/...
As of 435 AM EDT Sunday...No real changes made from previous
forecast. High clouds will continue to move eastwards throughout the
remainder of the overnight hours. By daybreak, skies should be
mostly clear with a small possibility of some scattered low level
clouds across the NEK and Adirondacks associated with a weak
boundary and enhanced 925mb moisture. Satellite imagery shows this
cloud cover currently located over southern Quebec slowly inching
down towards the NH/VT international border. A stray flurry may be
possible, but chances are pretty marginal (and highly dependent on
how saturated this layer is with respect to ice)...although Canadian
radar does show some weak echos approaching the Canada/Maine border.

Aside from this non-impactful cloud cover, high pressure will
continue to build in throughout today and into Monday. Still
advertising a beautiful day with highs in the low to mid 30s with
light northerly winds. RAP analyzed 1044mb high will continue to
push southeastward over the North Country tonight. With the high
situated nearly overhead anticipate a fairly favorable radiational
cooling night. MOS guidance continues to be the coldest among the
guidance, including much of the BC guidance. Have continued to trend
on the cooler side of things, but lack of substantial snow cover may
contribute to slightly warmer temps than MOS suggests...regardless,
still going to be a fairly chilly night given 925mb temperatures
right around -10 C. Lows should into the upper single digits to low
teens for most valleys, and near to below zero for the colder
hollows of the Adirondacks and NEK.

Main focus for Monday will be continued dry weather and warmer
temperatures. Sounding profiles show very dry airmass in place
overhead with dew point depressions during peak mixing Monday
afternoon greater than 20 degrees. Winds will turn out of the south
around 10 kt. Bumped temperatures up slightly beyond model guidance
given warm trend over the last several days and mostly sunny skies.
Highs are expected in the low to mid 40s for the valleys and 30s for
mountain locations.

&&

.SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 435 AM EDT Sunday...Expecting southerly winds increasing 
along with warm advection Monday night into Tuesday ahead of a 
cold front. Temps will be fairly steady or rising overnight in 
the mid 20s to mid 30s. Limited moisture returns as precipitable
water reaches about an half an inch on the nose of a 
southwesterly 40-50kt 850 jet. Decent isentropic lift and weak 
low level convergence and upper level divergence will bring 
showers mostly in the form of rain, though could be a mix of wet
snow if it starts early enough in the morning before snow 
levels climb to 2500-3500ft. Less than an inch of snow in the 
higher terrain. Precip totals should be light with a tenth or 
two although could be less than that in the Champlain valley 
with downsloping off the Adirondacks. High temps mainly in the 
40s with south to southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph, perhaps 
higher over Lake Champlain.

&&

.LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
As of 435 AM EDT Sunday...Behind the front Tuesday night there 
could be some mountain snow showers but not expecting much 
accumulation as the another dry cold airmass moves in from 
Canada for Wed. Models continue to be split on the solutions for
Thu/Fri as the EC/CMC brings a warm front with a quick return 
of precip on Thu while GFS hold it off until Thu night/Friday. 
For now have increasing chance of precip later Thu into Friday. 
Temps may be cold enough for a little wet snow at the onset 
before changing to rain showers. All the models then pretty much
in a agreement that we get into the warm sector by Friday 
before another cold front sweeps through with cooler and drier 
conditions by Saturday. Temps generally near or above normal 
with the the possibility of 60 degrees on Friday, but stay 
tuned.

&&

.AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
Through 06Z Monday...Mainly VFR conditions expected throughout 
the TAF period. High clouds will begin to move eastward 
throughout the overnight hours with mainly clear skies expected.
Towards sunset MVFR ceilings may be possible across the high
terrain, including KSLK. A stay flurry may be possible in these
lowers clouds. Daytime mixing should erode these low clouds 
with mostly SKC expected through remainder of TAF period. NW 
winds 05-15kt expected overnight. A dry secondary cold front 
moving from north to south across the region will shift winds 
northerly for Sunday at 8- 12kt. Light and variable winds 
expected Sunday night. 

Outlook...

Monday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Monday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHSN.
Tuesday: Mainly MVFR and IFR, with local VFR possible. Definite
SHRA, Likely SHSN.
Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHRA,
Chance SHSN.
Wednesday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Wednesday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Thursday: VFR. Slight chance SHRA.
