NORTHERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
446 AM EDT FRI APR 18 2014

...FINE FUELS WILL CONTINUE TO DRY OUT TODAY...

.DISCUSSION...
A DRY AIR MASS EXISTS OVER THE AREA TODAY IN RESPONSE TO HIGH
PRESSURE OVER NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND. THIS FEATURE WILL WILL MOVE
SLOWLY NORTHEAST THROUGH TONIGHT AND AS A RESULT...PLENTY OF
SUNSHINE WILL EXIST TODAY TO DRY THE FINE FUELS OUT. THE DRYING
POTENTIAL WILL ALSO BE ENHANCED BY THE FACT THAT AFTERNOON
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES TODAY WILL BE IN THE 20 PERCENT RANGE. WINDS
WILL INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH TODAY INTO THE 10 TO 15 MPH RANGE.
AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA TONIGHT AND
SATURDAY. EXPECT CLOUDS...HIGHER HUMIDITIES...AND THE CHANCES OF
RAIN TO INCREASE DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.
