Synopsis
A cold front will move through the north country overnight with
a chance of rain or snow showers. There will be a slight chance
for rain and snow showers on Wednesday, mainly over the high
elevations of the adirondacks and green mountains. A ridge of
high pressure will build into the region on Thursday with mostly
sunny skies expected. A low pressure area moving east across
the ohio valley will bring mixed wintry precipitation to the
north country late Friday into Saturday.

Near term /until 6 pm Wednesday evening/
As of 1108 pm edt Tuesday... Patchy drizzle, isolated -rw, and low
ceilings persist across the north country this evening, with
temps at 03z mainly 34-38f. Main synoptic feature of note is
the relatively compact, vertically stacked low exiting east of
nj. Main precipitation shield with this system will remain to
our south. However, as the low tracks ewd, will see increasing
n-nw winds, which will induce low-level CAA thru the remainder
of the overnight. Gradually cooling thermal profiles will allow
for a rain/snow mix as we move toward 04-05z along the intl
border, and elsewhere after 06z. Activity will be quite light
with orographics effects providing primary forcing mechanism.

Despite the low- level caa, continued cloud cover will help to
keep temperatures up overnight with lows mainly in the lower 30s,
except in the 20s over the higher elevations.

The region will be under cold advection on Wednesday. Expecting
a slight chance for some rain or snow showers on Wednesday,
mainly over the higher elevations of the adirondacks and green
mountains.

Short term /6 pm Wednesday evening through Thursday night/
As of 400 pm edt Tuesday... Any residual rain or snow showers
should come to an end early Wednesday night. A ridge of high
pressure will build south from canada late Wednesday night and
will remain over the region through Thursday night. Expecting
mostly sunny skies on Thursday. A warm front will approach the
region well after midnight Thursday night, so will have a chance
of snow light snow late Thursday night and approaching daybreak
on Friday.

Long term /Friday through Tuesday/
As of 345 pm edt Tuesday... Snow expected to spread from north
to south across the north country on Friday with warming
temperatures during the day in southerly flow changing snow to
mostly snow. Some enhancement of QPF on eastern slopes expected
with shadowing effects on leeward slopes and valleys. Heading
into Friday night/Saturday morning, warmer air aloft will result
in wintry mix starting over northern ny and spreading eastward
into the champlain valley in the middle of the night. Northeast
kingdom has best chance of remaining snow through Saturday
morning. Winds shift out of the north on Saturday as the main
coastal low pulls east and northern stream shortwave that
provided lift for wintry mix will move out of the area with
generally drying conditions Saturday into Sunday. NW upslope
precip possible through Sunday before surface high pressure
becomes the dominant feature through Tuesday.

Aviation /03z Wednesday through Sunday/
Through 00z Thursday... A mix of MVFR to lifr continues across
the forecast area. This mix and a bouncing between lower
categories will continue throughout the overnight hours. Areas
of fog development possible tonight, with MVFR- ifr vsbys.

Generally expect all terminals to see improvement on Wednesday
back toVFR by the afternoon.

Winds will be out of the north-northwest at 05-10 knots with
some gusts into the upper teens late Wednesday afternoon.

Outlook 00z Thursday through Sunday...

00z Thursday through 12z Thursday... MainlyVFR. Isolated snow
showers over higher terrain.

12z Thursday through 12z Friday...VFR under high pressure.

12z Friday through 06z Sunday... Areas of MVFR/ifr in rain and
snow.

06z Sunday onward...VFR conditions under building high pressure.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
