Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 738 PM EDT Tue May 28 2024

Scattered showers will continue into tonight but they will gradually become lighter and narrower in coverage. Dry weather should mostly prevail for the rest of the week though there could be a few isolated showers on Wednesday. A cool dry airmass will bring gorgeous weather for the end of the week and beginning of the weekend, but there will be the chance of patchy frost in the coldest locations Wednesday and Thursday night.

As of 727 PM EDT Tuesday...Forecast is in good shape this evening. A few changes were made to match the latest observations, including temperature, wind, and precipitation.
There's a bit more of a gradient in temperatures with portions of southern Vermont still in the low 70s while rain cooled air and northwesterly winds in much of northern New York and northern Champlain Valley has brought temperatures into the upper 50s to low 60s. Added a little bit to wind gusts this evening, especially in central/eastern Vermont with favorable west-northwest flow and lack of rain and associated lower clouds. Also backed off PoPs quite a bit over about the southern half of Vermont and southern Essex County, New York with a plethora of dry air evident in forecast soundings and satellite imagery making it unlikely for upstream showers to make it into the area with more than a trace of rainfall.

Previous Discussion... A large upper level low will be situated to the north of the region during this period, and a few shortwaves will pivot around it and bring some shower chances.
Scattered showers have developed across the region this afternoon. At this point, it does not look like any of the showers will contain any thunder though it cannot be completely ruled out. The showers are mostly focused on a secondary cold front that is currently moving southeastward through northern New york. This front should reach the Champlain Valley this evening and it will be out of the region late tonight. It should gradually weaken as it moves across as we lose diurnal heating and as the dynamics gradually become less favorable.
Temperatures should be a little lower tomorrow night compared last night. Lows will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Clouds should remain in place tonight and boundary layer winds should remain up, so radiational cooling will not be too efficient.
However, sustained cold air advection will be helping to lower temperatures.

Diurnal heating will cause some showers to return on Wednesday but they will be lighter and much narrower in coverage. Right now, they look to be most focused over southern Vermont. Clouds should prevail throughout most of the day but skies will begin to clear overnight.
Highs will be in the mid 60s to low 70s. Winds Wednesday night look to go calm and there will be a cool, dry airmass in place, but how low temperatures go will depend on how much the clouds can clear out. Currently have lows in the upper 30s to upper 40s but if skies can clear quickly, temperatures may be able to fall far enough for some patchy frost to develop in the coldest hollows of the Adirondacks or Northeast Kingdom.

As of 357 PM EDT Tuesday...PWATs fall to between 0.3 and 0.5 inches on Thursday, or less than 10th percentile according to SPC sounding climatology for Albany, NY. With embedded moisture-starved shortwave energy within the broader upper level trough, as well as ongoing cold air advection, expect highs 60-65 with a mix of sun and clouds with northerly gusts 20-25 mph at times making it feel unseasonably chilly. For reference, typical highs for late May are 69-75 across our region. While a few isolated showers cannot be ruled out, have maintained a dry forecast with PoPs below slight chance category (less than 15 percent). Core of the anomalously cold H5 low moves somewhere over northern New England overnight Thursday, but there remains differences among models on the precise orientation. So while it will be a chilly night for late May standards, questions remain on how widespread the frost potential would be. If the boundary layer decouples, it is certainly possible for some of our colder hollows to fall into the mid and upper 30s. Those with sensitive vegetation should keep abreast of the latest forecast and potential for patchy frost overnight Thursday.

As of 357 PM EDT Tuesday...We can look forward to a warming trend Friday into the weekend. Friday and Saturday look to be gorgeous days for outdoor activities. Highs on Friday look to be around 67-73 and Saturday 74-80 with plentiful sunshine and comfortable humidity.
While upper ridging builds in from the west, we do maintain a light northerly flow below 850mb level so the air mass will be continental polar in nature. Dew points will be in the 40s so the weather will be gorgeous to be outdoors. Next chance for showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms does not arrive till Sunday and early next week.
But the weather pattern looks overall benign as we head into meteorological summer, with no significant heat or severe weather risks in the horizon. The chance for more widespread showers and thunderstorms increases towards middle of next week when a more organized shortwave trough crosses the region but forecast uncertainty a week out is too high to be overly deterministic.

Through 00Z Thursday...Current radar showing an area of light showers with pockets of heavier activity with some IFR vis occurring earlier at MSS. Thinking these showers will continue to track eastward and impact many of our taf sites with MVFR conditions thru 03z. A brief 20 to 30 min window of IFR cigs/vis is possible at SLK associated with these showers thru 01z.
Also, as winds shift to the northwest and upslope flow develops under plenty of moisture trapped below inversion from recent rainfall, intervals of IFR cigs are possible thru 06z, with likely IFR cigs btwn 06-10z at SLk before conditions improve.
Elsewhere, mostly VFR cigs/vis with intervals of MVFR cigs at EFK/MPV and RUT developing by 06z and prevailing thru 10z, before all sites go back to VFR by 12z. VFR continues on Weds with northwest winds of 5 to 10 knots.
