312 am edt Mon aug 26 2019

A large area of high pressure centered across southern quebec
will maintain mostly clear and tranquil weather conditions
across the north country through Tuesday. An occluded front
approaching from the west will bring the next chance for
precipitation on Wednesday, with widely scattered showers
expected. Another mid-level disturbance will bring a chance for
additional showers Friday into Friday night. Current indications
suggest pleasant and dry conditions for the holiday weekend
across the north country.

Near term through Tuesday
As of 209 am edt Monday... It's largely a persistence forecast as
sfc anticyclone and deep-layer ridge remains anchored across
northern new england and quebec through Tuesday. Other than some
patchy nocturnal fog in the normally favored valleys of
central ERN vt and within the NRN adirondack region, forecast
concerns are minimal. With 925-850mb temperatures a degree c or
so warmer today, bumped valley highs upward a couple of degrees
compared to yesterday. Under full sunshine, valley highs will
reach the upper 70s to around 80f... Very near climate normals
for late august. Temperatures will fall back into the mid 40s to
mid 50s tonight. On Tuesday, a light southerly gradient flow
develops, and should see south winds 5-10 mph, with gusts 15-18
mph during the afternoon hours across the champlain valley.

Highs will again top out in the upper 70s to lower 80s and
dewpoints remain in the low-mid 50s. Pops nil through the

Short term Tuesday night through Wednesday
As of 312 am edt Monday... Upper low east of the area Tuesday
evening will help to limit the eastward progression of an
approaching upper level trough. Precipitation associated with
the upper trough to our west will move more north than east and
will be closely tied to the upper trough axis. Thus looking at
parts of northern new york having the best chance of seeing any
precipitation after midnight Tuesday night. Eventually the
showers get into vermont... But not until Wednesday afternoon.

There will be a narrow axis of instability ahead of a pre-
frontal trough moving into the region... But deep layer shear
remains to the west of the instability axis. Thus the potential
for organized convection looks low at this time and will keep
precipitation in the form of showers and not mention
thunderstorms at this time. Lows Tuesday night will be in the
50s to lower 60s with highs on Wednesday in the 70s to around

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
As of 312 am edt Monday... Area of showers will exit vermont
later Wednesday night and there should be a lull in
precipitation early on Thursday. However a shortwave trough
moves into the region later on Thursday and there could be some
showers... Especially over northern areas. Another shortwave
trough and frontal system move in on Friday and this will keep
the threat of showers going over the area... But not expecting
widespread precipitation. The flow aloft will change heading
into the weekend with west to northwest flow aloft developing
along with high pressure at the service. As a result... Looking
at cooler and drier weather for the weekend.

Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Through 12z Tuesday... Intervals of lifr noctural fog will
affect slk mpv between 06-12z this morning and again 06-12z
Tuesday morning. Otherwise, mainly skc with light winds through
the period with large area of high pressure in control.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at 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.
