Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
744 AM EDT Wed Sep 20 2017

High pressure will continue to dominate for the better part of
the next week. While Hurricane Jose will remain southeast of New
England, onshore flow from coastal areas will result in periods
of low clouds and a chance of light showers for eastern Vermont
for parts of Wednesday before Jose drifts further east. Beyond
this, expect overall quiet and dry conditions with with well
above seasonal average temperatures throughout the period.


As of 349 AM EDT Wednesday...High pressure is still the name of
the game for the North Country for the near term and beyond.
This will keep Hurricane Jose well at bay to the southeast of
the CWA and overall a non-player for us, short of some increased
onshore clouds over eastern VT today as well as a slight chance
for a few showers through the late afternoon. While the rest of
the CWA will see partly cloudy skies and overall dry

Northerly winds today should again keep temperatures today in the
upper 70s to low 80s, which is still well above seasonable
normals. Overnight tonight will see another chance for patchy
fog again in the protected valleys, but overall mostly clear and
overnight lows in the 50`s with the Champlain Valley remaining
in the low 60s.

Thursday will be more of the same overall with few clouds and dry
quiet conditions overall. Temperatures will again be in the
upper 70s with a few valley locations again reaching 80.


As of 349 AM EDT Wednesday...Upper ridge is reinforced over the
area Thursday night through Friday night. This will lead to a
continuation of dry weather as Jose is forced to remain well
south and east of the area. Other than some high clouds over
parts of the area...plenty of sunshine will exist. Lows Thursday
night will be in the lower 40s to lower 50s...with upper 30s in
the northern Adirondacks. Warming temperatures at 850 mb on
Friday will allow for high temperatures to be in the mid 70s to
lower 80s.


As of 349 AM EDT Wednesday...Upper ridge builds right over the
area on the weekend and 850 mb temperatures warm even more.
This will put all areas in the 80s by Sunday. Jose still remains
far enough south to not have an impact on the area plus it will
be weakening with time. Perhaps in the Monday- Tuesday time
period will the flow pattern change to allow some moisture to
move into the region as Maria moves up the coast and helps to
push whatever is left of Jose to lift into parts of New England.
Any clouds moving in will help lower temperatures early next
week...but readings will still be above normal.


Through 12Z Thursday...Early morning fog at MPV, SLK, and MSS
will burn off in the next hour. After that, all stations will
remain VFR during the daytime before another round of MFVR/IFR
fog again for the same locations as this morning after 04Z.
Light and variable winds this morning will become northerly at
05-10 knots after 15Z and again back to light and variable after


Thursday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Thursday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Friday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Friday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Saturday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Saturday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
