FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL/NORTHERN VERMONT AND
NORTHERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
452 AM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016

...INCREASING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE TODAY THROUGH TOMORROW...

.DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE REMAINS IN PLACE ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL PROVIDE THE REGION WITH VERY WARM
MAX TEMPERATURES...NEAR 90 IN THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY. MOISTURE WILL
ALSO BE INCREASING ACROSS THE AREA OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND THIS
WILL RESULT IN AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITIES ONLY LOWERING INTO
THE 40 PERCENT RANGE WITH GOOD RECOVERIES EXPECTED AT NIGHT. ONLY
ISOLATED CONVECTION EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON, AND FOCUSED ALONG THE
HIGHER TERRAIN. AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL
GRADUALLY MOVE INTO THE REGION SUNDAY INTO MONDAY AND WOULD EXPECT
AN INCREASE IN AREAL COVERAGE OF THE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS...ESPECIALLY ON MONDAY. COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER
WILL RETURN TO THE AREA BY THE MIDDLE PART OF NEXT WEEK.
