Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Northern Vermont and
Northern New York
National Weather Service Burlington VT
558 AM EDT Thu Aug 17 2017

...Dry Today With Showers And Storms Late Tonight And Friday...

.DISCUSSION...
Dry weather is expected today as high pressure remains over the
area. The high pressure system will keep winds under 10 mph today.
Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer today and afternoon
relative humidities will once again be in the 40 percent range. A
warm front will move into northern New York later tonight and
across Vermont Friday morning. As a result...expect the areal
coverage of showers to increase with the potential for a few
thunderstorms. The warm front lifts north of the area Friday
afternoon...but a cold front moves in later in the day and will
one again enhance the potential for more showers and
thunderstorms. Higher dew points on Friday will result in much
higher afternoon relative humidities than today.
