SYNOPSIS. Scattered rain showers will come to an end this evening as daytime heating is lost. Additional chances for rain showers exist again on Tuesday as a cold front passes through, though without much impact. A stronger weather system will traverse the North Country Wednesday into Wednesday night, with more widespread precipitation expected. Temperatures trend below normal for Thursday onward with brisk northwest winds developing and higher elevation snow showers possible.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. As of 405 PM EDT Monday . Scattered rain showers with an occasional rumble of thunder will continue this afternoon and evening across much of Vermont. As daytime heating is lost, showers will come to an end. A brief dry period is then expected late tonight as a narrow wedge of dry air and associated surface high pressure skirt across the region. Clouds and increasing chances for precipitation will quickly build back in from the west during the overnight hours as a cold front approaches. However, the front will pass during the day on Tuesday without much fanfare as the parent low lifts well to the north of the forecast area. The best chances for rain will be during the early morning hours on Tuesday across northern New York. As the front progresses eastward during the day, forcing is lost and rain showers will become limited to the higher terrain of northeast Vermont. Overall, less than one tenth of an inch of rain is expected on Tuesday. The greater impact of the frontal passage will be the sharp temperature gradient that will exist across the area with highs only in the 40s across northern New York and reaching mid to upper 50s across southeastern Vermont. Tuesday will also be breezy during the day with sustained winds out of the WSW at 10 to 20 mph and gusts up to 20 to 30 mph. Temperatures will drop throughout the day as low level flow becomes northerly with overnight lows dropping into the upper 20s to low 30s.
SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. As of 405 PM EDT Monday . Another widespread rain/snow event will affect the North Country, with the higher elevations again possibly seeing several inches of accumulation. The model guidance continues to show a trend toward a colder solution, with surface low pressure to move from western PA early Wednesday to southern VT/NH by Wednesday evening and then into eastern ME by Thursday morning. Model consensus is also trending colder aloft, as we look to have a 700 mb low move nearly overhead Wednesday night, rather than an open wave as was indicated previously. Hence, current expectations are that precipitation will overspread the region Wednesday morning and continue through the day into the evening before transitioning to more upslope showers overnight Wednesday night into Thursday. Areas from the Adirondacks westward would start out primarily as snow or a rain/snow mix and quickly turn over to all snow by Wednesday afternoon as the low deepens and moves eastward, pulling colder air in its wake. Locations east of the Adirondacks, especially below 1500 ft. However, these areas too will transition to snow by Wednesday evening. Strong frontogenetical forcing will exist along the leading edge of the colder air, so briefly heavy precipitation will be possible during the afternoon hours. Note that some model solutions, particularly the NAM, are indicating a period of wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain along the rain/snow transition line. The NAM's an outlier with bringing the warm air aloft in this far north though, and given the overall trend toward a colder solution, have kept with just a mention of rain and/or snow. Highs will be variable across the region on Wednesday, ranging from the mid 30s in the northern Adirondacks to the mid 50s in the lower Connecticut River Valley. Wednesday night, the low moves east and get into northwest flow and upslope wrap-around showers. Although focused in the mountains, any precipitation will change over to snow as lows dip into the 20s to around 30 areawide. Overall, expect snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches in the higher terrain, with locally higher amounts of 3-5 inches along the northwestern slopes of the Adirondacks and on the highest summits.
For Thursday . the upslope snow showers will continue through the day, with the wider valleys seeing a change over to rain. Highs will be in the mid 30s in the mountains and in the lower 40s at lower elevations, but brisk west to northwest winds will make it feel colder still.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. As of 405 PM EDT Monday . Wrap around rain/snow showers continue Thursday night into early Friday as the upper low spins into the Canadian Maritimes. Friday will be brisk with gusty west/southwest winds. Highs will only be in the 40s east of the Greens, while 50s are expected elsewhere. The first half of the weekend will be pleasant as we'll see brief ridging and temperatures warming back up into the upper 50s to mid 60s. However, another low pressure system will bring widespread precipitation to the region Sunday and Sunday night. This looks to be mainly be a rainfall event, with some wet snow mixing in at the highest elevations. Highs for early next week will be in the upper 40s to upper 50s, with lows in the 30s.
AVIATION /20Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Through 18Z Tuesday . Generally VFR conditions are expected through the period. BKN-OVC low/mid clouds will continue today with scattered showers developing from the Champlain Valley eastward this afternoon. Could see MVFR vsby in any heavier showers but not explicitly forecast at this time. Brief clearing occurs for a few hours this evening after sunset, before a front approaches from the west with MVFR ceilings moving into northern New York towards dawn. With skies remaining clear across eastern Vermont during this time, a brief period of morning fog is possible at KMPV between 08z and 12z resulting in IFR to LIFR conditions. A return to VFR is expected thereafter. Winds will be out of the south/southwest of 5 to 10 knots through 00z, becoming light and variable overnight. After 12z Tuesday, winds will become westerly and increase up to 15 knots with gusts up to 25 knots.
