Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 708 AM EST Sun Dec 8 2019
SYNOPSIS. A warm front with clouds and scattered snow showers develops this afternoon across the higher summits of the North Country. Brisk southerly winds bring warmer temperatures to the area through Monday, along with widespread threat for rain. Some pockets of freezing rain are possible early Monday morning, which will lead to a slippery commute, especially east of the Greens. After another warm day on Tuesday, much colder air returns for midweek, along with additional chances for mainly mountain snow showers.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 700 AM EST Sunday . Clouds have been slow to move into the region overnight, and temperatures have bottomed out in the single digits above and below zero. This is our coldest night that we've had since early March. Winds will be picking up by about 10 or 11 am this morning out of the South. No big changes for the 630 am update this morning. Previous discussion follows.
Temperatures have dropped sharply overnight, currently readings are mainly in the single digits above and below zero. Surface high continues to slide eastward and away from the North Country today. Increasing south- southwesterly flow develops today with warm air advection. Will have some clouds move into the area, though not expecting much more than a few flurries across the Northern Mountains. Winds will strengthen today with low level jet moving over the area, peaking around 00z this evening. Winds will gust out of the south up to about 30 to 35 knots, especially in the Champlain valley and closest to Lake Champlain where winds may gust up to about 40 kts. Temperatures today will rise into the 30s areawide, then not drop too much at all overnight as warm air advection continues and clouds and precipitation move into the area. Deeper moisture advects into the region overnight as well as a weak shortwave. This feature brings some showers overnight, and we may see some freezing rain in areas that remained below freezing Sunday, mainly east of the greens and in deeper pockets in the Dacks. A few hundredths of ice accretion is possible and a slippery Monday morning commute is possible in these areas. On Monday large scale low pressure system and associated fronts will begin to lift northeastward through the Great Lakes region. A warm front lifts across the area, and rain will become more widespread as deeper moisture is advected into the area and PWATs increase to over three quarters of an inch. Strong southwesterly winds continue Monday and Champlain valley will experience a bit of downsloping from the Dacks and therefore lower precipitation totals ultimately. Rainfall totals will range from around a third of an inch in the northern Champlain valley to about three quarters of an inch in Southern Vermont. We continue to monitor potential for some modest river rises from combination of rainfall and snowmelt, though anticipate within bank rises at this time. Should we get more rainfall than we currently have forecasted, greater rises will be possible on area rivers.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 424 AM EST Sunday . Rain will continue Monday night into Tuesday morning as we remain under strong warm air advection. Temperatures will likely hold steady or even rise overnight as southwest flow continues ahead of a cold front approaching from the northwest. Rain will start to taper off early Tuesday as the best moisture shifts to our east. Overall, anticipate rainfall totals in the 0.50-1.00 inch range, with only a quarter inch or so on the northeastern side of the Adirondacks into the Champlain Valley due to downsloping. While widespread hydro issues are not anticipated, we will continue to monitor trends as the event approaches. The frontal passage may spark some rain/snow showers, but the main impact will be rapidly falling temperatures through the afternoon into the evening. This may result in a flash freeze of any wet surfaces. After highs in the mid and upper 40s early Tuesday, temperatures will drop into the teens and 20s.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 424 AM EST Sunday . An upper shortwave and cold front will cross the region on Wednesday, keeping the chance for snow showers around, especially in the northern mountains. Lake effect snow will be likely off of Lake Ontario as well, mainly early as winds will be west ahead of the front, then turning northwest which will shunt the lake effect band south of our area. An arctic high will build into the region behind the front, making for a couple of very cold days. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will only be in the 20s, with some teens possible Thursday. Overnight lows meanwhile will be in the single digits for most. Things improve on Friday as the high shifts east, allowing temps to warm into the 30s. Precipitation chances will increase as we head into the weekend though as a shortwave moves through the southwest flow aloft.
AVIATION /12Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Through 12Z Monday . Increasing and lowering clouds are expected over the next 24 hours with warm air advection and approaching warm front. The other item of note will be the winds and the development of low level wind shear. Winds will be light through about 15z, then increase from the south and southwest. Expect gusts as high as 30 knots. Stronger flow aloft moves over the region after about 15z and persists through the remainder of the period. Expect south to southwest winds at 2000 feet reach speeds in the 40 to 50 knot range which will create low level wind shear conditions. During the overnight hours will see some light rain and snow showers move into the area, have used VCSH for now in the TAFs until timing becomes more clear.
Monday: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Definite RA, Likely FZRA. Monday Night: Mainly MVFR, with areas IFR possible. Definite RA, Chance SHRA. Tuesday: Mainly MVFR, with areas VFR possible. Chance SHRA, Chance SHSN. Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHSN. Wednesday: VFR. Chance SHSN. Wednesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Slight chance SHSN. Thursday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
MARINE. Lake Wind Advisory in effect beginning today, likely continuing until sometime Monday night. Winds increase this afternoon to 20 to 30 kts with higher gusts. Peak of winds will be around 7-10 pm this evening. Winds will gust to about 45 knots at times.

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.
