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

.SYNOPSIS...
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.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
As of 635 AM EDT Thursday...Overall forecast in good shape with
just some tweaks to match current conditions. Some fog has
developed over eastern Vermont and have extended the duration of
this fog through mid-morning. Otherwise remainder of forecast in
good shape based on radar/satellite trends. 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.

&&

.SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
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.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
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
expected.

&&

.AVIATION /11Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Through 12Z Friday...Overall looking at VFR conditions through
the period. The only exception to this will be at KSLK through
15z where IFR ceilings will exist. Otherwise looking at ceilings
generally at or above 4000 feet through about 00z before clouds
become scattered after 00z. There may be a few mountain rain
showers this afternoon...but no restrictions to visibility are
expected with the showers. Winds will pick up from the west and
northwest after 14z...but speeds will generally be 10 knots or
less. Winds will become light and variable after 00z...with the
exception of KRUT where southeast winds develop after 02z.

Outlook...

Friday - Monday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
