Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
434 AM EDT Thu Aug 24 2017

An upper level trough of low pressure over eastern Canada and
the Northeast will bring cooler conditions to the region today
and Friday. There may be a few showers in the mountains this
afternoon and then over northeast Vermont on Friday. High
pressure builds in for the weekend and a slow warming trend will
take place as more sunshine develops across the area.


As of 434 AM EDT Thursday...Upper level trough of low pressure
will be over the region today with low level cold air advection
taking place. This should produce clouds and maybe a few showers
in the mountains this afternoon. Below normal temperatures will
be the rule due to the clouds and low level cold air advection
with highs only in the mid 60s to lower 70s.

For tonight any showers should come to an end early with lows
generally in the mid 40s to lower 50s. Skies will generally be
partly cloudy.


As of 434 AM EDT Thursday...Upper trough over eastern Canada
moves east and looks to provide sufficient dynamic support over
northeast Vermont for a few showers in the afternoon. The rest
of the area will remain dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Little change in temperature on Friday with highs in the mid 60s
to lower 70s. High pressure builds into the region Friday night
into Saturday for a continuation of dry weather. Should see
less cloud cover on Saturday with a gradual warming trend taking
place with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s.


As of 434 AM EDT Thursday...The gradual warming trend that
starts on Friday carries on through much of the extended period
as an upper level ridge slowly builds into the region. Highs
through the period will generally be in the 70s to around 80
with little in the way of cloud cover and no precipitation


Through 06Z Friday...VFR conditions expected aside from KSLK
and KMPV. A low level jet keeps MVFR/IFR vsbys and cigs
intermittent. Have included TEMPOs to depict this. After 12Z VFR
conditions will prevail across the North Country with isolated
showers possible in the afternoon...included VCSH at KSLK, KMPV
and KRUT according to CAM model output.

Light to calm winds this morning will increase out of the W to
NW at 5-10kts during the day. Winds will again subside after
sunset. Can`t rule out possible fog development at KSLK and KMPV
Thursday night.


Friday - Monday: VFR. NO SIG WX under surface high pressure.
