Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Northern Vermont and
Northern New York
National Weather Service Burlington VT
503 AM EDT Wed Jun 28 2017

...Transitional Day Today Before Wetter Pattern Develops...

.DISCUSSION...
Northwest flow aloft has developed over the area in the wake of
the low pressure system that brought widespread showers and storms
to the area on Tuesday. Most areas will remain dry today...but we
still cannot rule out the possibility of some showers developing
this afternoon. Most areas will only have a slight chance of
showers in the forecast...but a little better chance of seeing
some showers will be over north central and northeast Vermont. Any
of the showers should dissipate around sunset. Afternoon relative
humidities will be the lowest of the week...but still only get
down into the 45 to 55 percent range. Flow aloft becomes westerly
overnight tonight and this will allow for the warmer and wetter
pattern to become established on Thursday and continue right into
early Sunday. Higher humidities will be the rule along with fairly
widespread precipitation. Many locations should see total rainfall
of at least an inch during this period.
