Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 1029 PM EDT Sat Jul 11 2020
SYNOPSIS. Expect isolated to scattered showers across the North Country this afternoon and evening. There may also be some thunderstorms, especially over northern New York and southern Vermont, and the potential for heavy downpours will exist with these storms. Overnight expect additional showers across the North Country as a low pressure system moves across the area. Some lingering showers and isolated storms will exist throughout the day on Sunday with temperatures at or slightly above seasonal normals.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. As of 727 PM EDT Saturday . Modest updates to the forecast this evening to better depict areal coverage of showers/embedded non- severe storms in advance of shortwave trough approaching from western NY. Used essentially a blend of latest HRRR/HRRRTL/RAP guidance into the overnight hours which appears to have the best idea on current evolution. Also tweaked sky cover and overnight QPF per most recent blended guidance. As core of shortwave moves through the region overnight through mid-morning Sunday expect a welcomed steady light to moderate rainfall in a southwest to northeast swath centered from the Adirondacks east- northeast into the northern half of VT. In this band areal totals through Sunday morning should average from a half to three quarters of an inch, with slightly less in the far northern SLV and portions of south-central VT. Temperatures remain on the mild side (60s to around 70) under light winds and high humidity.
Best forcing shifts east on Sunday and with limited instability feel we could see some showers during the afternoon hours, but thunder threat may be a bit limited. Highs on Sunday getting into the upper 70s to middle 80s. Then trending dry Sunday night with weak shortwave ridging traversing the region. Lows slightly cooler, though remaining mild and mainly in the 60s.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. As of 341 PM EDT Saturday . A closed upper low with embedded shortwave energy will bring cloudy skies and chances for rain to the North Country on Monday. A weak frontal boundary will accompany the passage of the aforementioned low, aiding in the development of rain showers with some embedded thunder during the afternoon and evening. As of 337 PM EDT Saturday. In addition, prevailing cloudy skies will limit the magnitude of diurnal heating, and thus, instability. Overall, 0.25-0.5 inches of rain is expected throughout the day Monday and Monday night with the highest amounts located across the higher terrain of the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. West winds Monday will be light (5mph or less), becoming northwest as a surface low develops off the coast of Cape Cod. Temperatures Monday will feel a bitter cooler than the past few days, with highs reaching upper 70s/low 80s and overnight lows in the upper 50s/low 60s.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. As of 341 PM EDT Saturday . A progressive pattern is in store for the remainder of the week with periodic chances for rain. During the day Tuesday, the upper level low will begin its departure eastward, bring ongoing chances for rain, especially across eastern Vermont. However, dry weather is expected mid- week under the influence of ridging aloft and subsequent high pressure at the surface. By the end of the week, another low pressure system approaches the North Country, bringing with it a chance of widespread showers focused along a frontal boundary. The exact timing of its passage is still to be determined, though model guidance is currently indicating it will be sometime Friday. Temperatures throughout the week will be near normal, with daytime highs reaching low 80s and overnight lows in the upper 50s/low 60s.
AVIATION /03Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Through 00Z Monday . Scattered showers and thunderstorms causing brief MVFR and IFR conditions are expected at MSS and SLK through at least 02Z, with less of a lightning threat later on. Brief heavy rain reducing visibility to 1 sm, vc lightning, and gusty winds to 25 kts will occur with some of these storms. Otherwise, MVFR and IFR conditions will occur with showers, and possible thunderstorms, expected after 08Z at SLK and PBG, 09Z at BTV, and 11Z at MPV. LLWS will accompany these showers, except at SLK, where IFR ceilings will persist through about 15Z. Generally MVFR conditions prior to frontal passage, with gradually improving conditions to VFR along with west winds in the 8 to 12 kt range, with post frontal gusts possible after 15Z to around 20 kts, especially at BTV and RUT.
Sunday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHRA. Monday: VFR. Chance SHRA, Slight chance TSRA. Monday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHRA, Slight chance TSRA. Tuesday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHRA. Tuesday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX. Wednesday: VFR. NO SIG WX. Wednesday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHRA.

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.
