000 FXUS61 KBTV 161152 AFDBTV Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 752 AM EDT Sat Sep 16 2017 .SYNOPSIS... A large area of high pressure will be in control of the weather for the weekend and the first part of next week. Plenty of sunshine and much above normal temperatures are expected. By the middle of next week, Jose is forecast to be far off the coast of southern New England. At that time we could see some clouds and a chance of showers into eastern Vermont. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/...

As of 746 AM EDT Saturday...Warm and dry weather expected for the weekend with overnight fog once again. Surface and upper level ridging remain. Morning fog will be lifting by about 9 or 10 am. Then we`ll have a mostly sunny day with temperatures over 10 degrees above normal. Max temps will be in the lower 80s, a couple degrees warmer than yesterday. Flow remains very light. Will have a few shallow afternoon cumulus only over the mountains. Another good set up for fog formation overnight, pretty much a repeat of the last couple nights. Then Sunday will be almost a carbon copy of Saturday, but a degree or so warmer even. Low and mid level flow will become more southerly, will have to consider possibility for a couple isolated showers with increase in low level moisture.

&& .SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 405 AM EDT Saturday...Ridging at the surface and aloft will close out the weekend and start the work week. This will keep the North Country dry, but increasing easterly flow ahead of Jose, approaching from the south, combined with possible shortwave approaching from the Great Lakes region, will lead to increasing clouds and moisture. Mild temperatures expected with Sunday night mins in the mid 50s to low 60s and Monday maxes in the 70s to low 80s. && .LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/... As of 405 AM EDT Saturday...The aforementioned ridge will weaken and shift east with Jose continuing to move northward off the Atlantic seaboard. ECMWF and GFS in fairly good agreement on Jose`s track through the mid week - tracking over the 70-40 benchmark late Tuesday night/early Wednesday. This scenario would allow for showers to affect eastern and southern VT. Sometime on Wednesday, GFS and ECMWF begin to differ in track. GFS keeps Jose closer to the New England coast, while ECMWF begins to track more easterly. Both operational model runs bring an end to precip over the North Country the latter half of Wednesday. Ridging will build into the region, closing out the week with dry conditions. && .AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
