FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL/NORTHERN VERMONT AND
NORTHERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
414 AM EDT SAT APR 18 2015

...LOCALIZED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS THIS WEEKEND...

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH DROPPING SOUTHEAST FROM ONTARIO/WESTERN
QUEBEC WILL MOVE ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA TODAY PRODUCING
SCATTERED SHOWERS, AND POSSIBLY A RUMBLE OF THUNDER. SHOWERS WILL
BE MOST NUMEROUS ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK AND NORTHERN VERMONT,
WITH MORE ISOLATED ACTIVITY ACROSS SOUTHERN VERMONT. LIGHT WINDS
THIS MORNING WILL TURN BREEZY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND GUSTY WINDS
MAY ACCOMPANY THE SHOWERS. RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL RANGE
FROM 30-40% WITH SOME ISOLATED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ACROSS
SOUTHERN VERMONT WHERE FUELS ARE DRY AND LESS PRECIPITATION IS
EXPECTED. AS THE TROUGH EXITS THIS EVENING, A STRONG AREA OF HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BUILD INTO THE REGION LATER TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY.
CONDITIONS WILL BE VERY DRY ON SUNDAY WHEN RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
WILL DROP TO AROUND 20 PERCENT, BUT WINDS WILL BE RATHER LIGHT
THOUGH, MAINLY FROM THE NORTHWEST AT AROUND 10 MPH. NEXT WEEK IS
STILL LOOKING UNSETTLED WITH A WIDESPREAD RAIN EVENT EXPECTED
MONDAY INTO TUESDAY, FOLLOWED BY A CHANCE OF SHOWERS MID-LATE
WEEK.
