Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 350 AM EST Sat Dec 7 2019
SYNOPSIS. A few flurries are possible today with snow showers across higher summits. Mainly dry and colder weather arrives this afternoon before temperatures rebound nicely on Sunday. The milder trend continues into early next week with increasing chances for rainfall by Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Cold conditions return for the middle of next week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. As of 321 AM EST Saturday . Surface high builds over the north country today, expecting decreasing clouds through the day with drier air working into the area. Upslope flurries and mountain snow showers are expected, especially in the morning, as upper level trough and some vorticity advection remains over the area. Low level flow will become more unblocked during the afternoon and backside of upper level trough kicks through this evening. Maximum temperatures this afternoon will range through the 20s. Surface high crests over our area around 00z, and temperatures will drop quickly following sunset. Minimum temperatures will bottom out in the single digits above zero, then rise later in the overnight as some clouds start to stream into the area as flow begins to pick up out of the southwest. Surface high slides off the New England coast on Sunday, and increasing winds are anticipated out of the south-southwest with increased pressure gradient and 45 to 50 kt low level jet moving into the area. Strong low level warm air advection set up, and maximum temperatures will range through the 30s. Windy conditions develop across Northern New York and into the Champlain valley, especially in the St Lawrence and Champlain valleys where channeled flow will enhance the gusty winds. We may near wind advisory criteria, will have to monitor for this potential. Winds will gust in the 35-40 mph range.
SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. As of 350 AM EST Saturday . A warm front will lift across the North Country Sunday night into Monday as low pressure moves from the Upper Midwest and across the Great Lakes. Moisture will increase through the overnight hours Sunday night on a 850mb low level jet. This will also allow warm air advection, and the result will be light precipitation spreading across the North Country later Sunday night through Monday. The Champlain and St Lawrence Valleys will mainly see plain rain, but cold surface temperatures across the Adirondacks and east of the Green Mountains mean a period of sleet and/or freezing rain. Any sleet accumulation or ice accretion will be light, but still anticipate a slippery commute for some areas early Monday morning. Temperatures will continue to warm through the day Monday, with eventually everyone warming to at least the upper 30s; hence all mixed precip will turn over to rain by afternoon. Brisk southwest flow will result in the usual QPF shadowing in the Champlain Valley, along with breezy surface winds Sunday night into early Monday. Rain will continue Monday night with temperatures remaining steady in the mid and upper 30s as the aforementioned low lifts well to our west. Overall QPF through this period will be a quarter to a little over three-quarters of an inch, the highest amounts in southern VT. Given the minimal snow cover, therefore don't anticipate any hydro concerns with this round of precipitation.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. As of 350 AM EST Saturday . Low pressure will move by well to our north, eventually shifting east of the region Tuesday afternoon, dragging its attendant cold front across the North Country. This is quite a potent front, and anticipate temperatures will drop sharply Tuesday afternoon. We will need to watch for a potential flash freeze, though the best moisture will move east of the region at that time, as well. Should any precipitation linger, it will be rain quickly changing over to snow. A broad upper trough and a secondary frontal passage will keep the risk of snow showers around for Wednesday, with temperatures only topping out in the 20s. Ridging takes hold Thursday and Friday, leading to a cool but dry end to the work week.
AVIATION /09Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Through 06Z Sunday . Continued low cloud cover will yield mostly MVFR conditions at MPV, RUT, BTV, and SLK, while VFR conditions will prevail at MSS and PBG tonight with more scattered clouds and higher ceilings. All sites should be VFR Saturday through the evening, although MVFR conditions may linger at BTV and SLK (due to ceilings between 2000 and 3000 feet) through 20Z. A shift from northwest to westerly and southwesterly winds will occur at SLK and MSS, respectively, towards daybreak, but elsewhere little change in winds through the next 24 hours. Wind speeds will remain light at under 10 knots.
Sunday: VFR. NO SIG WX. Sunday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Windy with gusts to 30 kt. Chance FZRA, Slight chance RA. Monday: Mainly MVFR, with local IFR possible. Definite RA, Likely FZRA. Monday Night: Mainly IFR, with areas MVFR possible. Definite SHRA. Tuesday: Mainly MVFR, with areas IFR possible. Chance SHRA. Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHSN. Wednesday: VFR. Chance SHSN.

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.
