000 FXUS61 KBTV 250557 AFDBTV Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 157 AM EDT Sun Jun 25 2017 .SYNOPSIS... Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop later this morning and afternoon across the North Country. Gusty winds and small hail will be possible with any of the thunderstorms. The showers and storms will taper off tonight...but the potential for additional showers or storms will develop once again Monday afternoon. High temperatures will be right around seasonal normals today and a few degrees below normal on Monday. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/... As of 157 AM EDT Sunday...Convection has come to an end early this morning and dry weather is expected through mid-morning. Deep layer shear has developed over the area and will persist through tonight. Instability is expected to develop as temperatures warm into the 70s and temperatures aloft cool a couple of degrees. This will create nearly dry adiabatic lapse rates in the 850-500 millibar layer...thus creating sufficient instability. Meanwhile dynamic support will be increasing over the area as a pronounced shortwave trough moves out of the eastern Great Lakes and into our area tonight. This will all be sufficient to create scattered showers and thunderstorms later this morning and afternoon across the area. Forecast soundings show low wet bulb zero values and drier air in the sub cloud layer. As a result...the potential for gusty winds and small hail will exist and will include in the forecast. For tonight...convection will decrease in areal coverage toward midnight as we lose instability and dynamic forcing shifts north and east of the area. Should be relatively dry during the overnight hours. && .SHORT TERM /MONDAY/... As of 157 AM EDT Sunday...Deep layer shear remains over the area on Monday and instability should develop during the afternoon hours. Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Sunday...thus instability will not be as favorable as Sunday. And there will be less of a forcing mechanism on Monday...thus looking at only a chance for showers or storms during the afternoon hours. Activity should not get organized enough to become no enhanced wording at this time. && .LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 239 PM EDT Saturday...Unsettled extended forecast continues. An upper level trough will dominate through mid week before the flow becomes more zonal. Despite flattening flow, the net change on the sensible weather will be minimal though as shortwaves will still be moving through the the zonal flow. In addition, nearly stationary boundary will be present near the area with increasing instability toward the end of the week. Good chances for thunderstorms on Thursday, and again toward the end of the week. Below normal temperatures are expected through most of the extended, with a warming trend from mid week and later. && .AVIATION /06Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... Through 06Z Monday...Overall looking at VFR conditions through the period. There may be some low clouds and fog developing at KSLK between 08z and 12z...which would result in MVFR/IFR conditions. Otherwise main item of note will be potential for showers and thunderstorms between 16z and 01z. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds and small hail during this time period. The threat for showers and storms will end after 01z. Winds will generally be from the south and southwest through the period...but speeds will generally be 10 knots or loss. Outlook...
