Marine Weather and Tides
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 312 AM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020
SYNOPSIS. Seasonably warm to locally hot weather is expected across the region over the next five days. Chances of showers and thunderstorms will exist later today into Friday as a weak cold front crosses the area, then again this coming Sunday and possibly by the middle of next week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 312 AM EDT Thursday . No large-scale changes expected for today as ridging builds in from the north with warm to locally hot weather in the mid 80s to lower 90s. A weak backdoor cold front will approach from the north late in the day into this evening which will support formation of scattered or widely scattered convection, mainly across northern counties as deeper zone of northwesterly flow aloft bridges across the region. Despite some differences in today's modelled sounding profiles, the overall idea is for a deeply mixed boundary layer with steep low to mid level lapse rates. This would support localized strong gusty winds with any deeper convective cores. As such I've introduced gusty wind wording into the forecast for our northern counties later today into early evening which lines up well with most recent SPC SWODY1 marginal risk area.
Scattered to widely scattered convection continues into tonight, though wanes in coverage over time as aforementioned weak front slips across the area. Best focus appears to set up across northern NY counties into the southwestern half of VT. Low temperatures to remain mild in the 60s to locally around 70 in milder Champlain Valley locales.
Some modest changes to the forecast on Friday as the backdoor front stalls in a northwest to southeast orientation to our immediate southwest. An additional impulse in the northwesterly flow aloft will approach by later in the morning into the afternoon. This, combined with broadly diffluent upper flow and modest instability across southwestern zones should allow convection to reblossom across southern zones accordingly. PoPs have been increased in this area, with progressively drier conditions as you progress toward the Canadian border, especially north and east. Temperatures will reflect these trends and with larger coverage of clouds southern zones will actually be cooler as highs mainly hold in the 70s. Further north, aforementioned drier weather and partial sunshine should allow readings to climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s in many spots.
SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 323 PM EDT Wednesday . Expecting some patchy dense fog for Friday night, with lows mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Drier air gradually filters into the region Friday night into Saturday, with PW values falling from 1.5-1.6" Friday afternoon to around 0.75" at 18Z Saturday. Should set up a pleasant Independence Day with dry conditions, mostly sunny skies, and highs in the low- mid 80s. Sea-level pressure gradient is relatively flat, so anticipating surface winds W-NW around 5 mph.
LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. As of 323 PM EDT Wednesday . Mid-summer conditions expected through the long-term forecast period with a gradual increase in temperatures and humidity. Temperatures begin in the mid 80s on Sunday, but building thermal ridge ewd from the Great Lakes should yield valley highs in the upper 80s to near 90 for the Monday through Wednesday period. Diurnal chances for afternoon/early evening tstm activity exist. May see more widespread threat of showers and thunderstorms toward Wednesday, especially per 12Z GFS with approach of a mid-level shortwave trough from the Great Lakes and associated surface cold front.
AVIATION /07Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Through 06Z Friday . A mix of flight conditions through sunrise due to areas of dense fog and light winds. Fog and IFR/LIFR conditions most prevalent at KMPV and KPBG through 11/12Z, with only modest confidence at KRUT/KSLK. Elsewhere, including BTV, VFR to prevail overnight. After 12Z VFR expected as light south/southwest flow around 5 kts, trends northwesterly by afternoon. Approach of weak cold front from the north may spark a few/sct t-storms which may affect northern terminals after 22Z. While an isolated threat, brief gusty winds will be possible with any stronger cores with localized turbulence and tops to 450 AGL.
Friday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHRA. Friday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHRA, Patchy BR. Independence Day: VFR. NO SIG WX. Saturday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX. Sunday: VFR. Chance SHRA, Chance TSRA. Sunday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHRA, Slight chance TSRA. Monday: VFR. Chance SHRA, Slight chance TSRA.
