000 FXUS61 KBTV 221439 AFDBTV Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 1039 AM EDT Mon Aug 22 2016 .SYNOPSIS... Cold front shifting east of Vermont this morning will usher in noticeably cooler and drier air across the North Country today. Weather will remain dry through Wednesday night with surface high pressure in control, along with a gradual moderation in temperatures. As the surface high shifts east of New England later in the week, warm and humid conditions will bring chances for showers and thunderstorms to the area later Thursday and also for Friday afternoon and evening. Dry conditions are expected to return for next weekend. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 11 PM THIS EVENING/... As of 1039 AM EDT Monday...NW winds continue the low-level CAA and dry air advection across the region this morning. Low clouds will continue across much of the North Country for most of the day, gradually becoming less numerous this evening. Temperatures look to top out in the 60s to around 70. Quiet tonight with strong sfc anticyclone building ewd from the Ohio Valley across the southern tier of NY and PA. Will see some patchy dense fog develop after 05Z in the climatological favored valleys with good radiational cooling conditions expected. Low temperatures generally upper 40s to lower 50s. PoPs NIL. && .SHORT TERM /11 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... As of 427 AM EDT Monday...West to northwest flow aloft will be over the area at the start of the period with gradual ridging aloft developing by Wednesday. High pressure will be at the surface in this pattern with this feature gradually moving eastward through Wednesday. This will promote no precipitation...plenty of sunshine... and a warming trend. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 70s to around 80...which will be about 10 degrees warmer than today. Even warmer on Wednesday with highs in the lower to middle 80s. && .LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/... As of 427 AM EDT Monday...Southwest flow aloft becomes established Wednesday night into Thursday and this will allow moisture to increase across the area. A cold front will be slow to move across the area Thursday and Thursday night as it will essentially be parallel to the upper flow. Because of this feel best chances for any showers and storms will come Thursday night into Friday and have only gone slight chance for Thursday afternoon. High pressure builds in Friday night through Sunday as westerly flow aloft develops. This will result in drier weather through this time period. High temperatures on Friday will be a few degrees above normal...then around seasonal normals on Saturday before increasing a couple of degrees above normal for Sunday. && .AVIATION /15Z Monday THROUGH Friday/...
