This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northern New York, central
Vermont, northeast Vermont, northwest Vermont and southern Vermont.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

A wide variety of weather is expected today through Thursday
across the entire North Country. Record high temperatures are
expected today which will lead to more snowmelt and runoff.
Showers and isolated thunderstorms may produce locally heavy
rainfall and all of these factors will lead to river rises. Most
rivers should stay within their banks...but localized flooding
will be possible especially later today into tonight. As a
result...be smart if driving and you encounter water covered
roads.

The other main weather concern will be strong and gusty winds
later tonight into Thursday. Wind gusts in the 35 to 45 mph range
will develop over northern New York later tonight and spread
across Vermont on Thursday. There may even be some localized gusts
to 50 mph. Winds of this magnitude will have the potential to
down trees and cause power interruptions. The gusty winds will be
from the southwest later tonight and from the west and northwest
on Thursday.

Lastly...colder air moving in later tonight and Thursday will
turn any precipitation over to snow and a dusting to two inches of
snow will be possible...especially in the mountainous areas.
Slippery roads may result and impact travel Thursday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Improving conditions are expected by Thursday night and the trend on
Friday and Saturday will be for drier weather with below normal
temperatures. A warming trend will take place beginning Sunday and
continue into early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
