Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Burlington VT
143 PM EDT Sun Aug 20 2017

A good deal of sunshine is expected for this afternoon with high
temperatures in the mid 70s to lower 80s. Dry weather continues
tonight and Monday as high pressure moves across the area. A
warming trend will take place with highs in the 80s and
continued sunshine. Above normal temperatures continue on
Tuesday with highs in the 80s...but an approaching trough of low
pressure will enhance the potential for showers and
thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and night.


As of 138 PM EDT Sunday...No updates need for near term forecast
with this update. Water vapor imagery showing the upper trough
is retreating to the east with weak high pressure building
across the region. Noticeable drying is taking place upstream
across southeast Ontario and thus we should be able to see
increasing amounts of sunshine as the day wears on. On track for
highs in the 70s to around 80.

For tonight and Monday...high pressure builds in tonight and
gradually exits the area on Monday. Dry weather is expected
during this time period with little in the way of cloud cover as
well. Flow in the low and mid levels becomes west and
southwest...which will allow for warm air advection to take
place. Based on increasing 850 mb temperatures all areas should
easily get into 80s with a few spots in the Champlain Valley
getting into the upper 80s. Solar eclipse viewing on Monday
still looks good with little in the way of cloud cover.


As of 455 AM EDT Sunday...Monday night should mainly remain dry
ahead of approaching frontal system which will bring showers
and thunderstorms to the area later Tuesday and Tuesday night.
Warm air advection continues on warm southwesterly flow,
temperatures will only drop into the 60s across the North
Country. Could see a couple isolated showers in the Saint
Lawrence valley. On Tuesday, a low pressure system will move
Northeastward from the Northern Great Lakes into Southern
Quebec. Warm air advection on moist southwesterly flow continues
on Tuesday and max temps will edge into the upper 80s, with
perhaps a couple 90 degree readings in the warmer spots. Looks
like surface cold front will still be west of our forecast area
by 00z Wed. Think that by Tuesday afternoon we could have some
surface based instability, especially in the Saint Lawrence
valley and Northern Adirondacks, enough for some thunderstorms
to pop up ahead of the approaching cold front. Have increased
pops after 18z in our western zones to likely. Pretty strong
upper level jet dynamics, so think that storms that do form
could have strong gusty winds and heavy rainfall with pwats
nearing two inches by Thursday evening. Have not added enhanced
wording yet, but may need to as we get closer to Tuesday


As of 500 AM EDT Sunday...Surface cold front will push west to
east across our forecast area Tuesday night, widespread showers
and isolated thunderstorms are expected. As previously
mentioned, gusty winds and heavy rain will still be possible
with high pwats and favorable jet dynamics. Not the best time
for a fropa in regards to severe weather, but at this time looks
like some of the storms could be strong. We may have some
showers Wednesday and Wednesday night with upper level trough
trailing departing surface frontal system crossing our forecast
area. Conditions will trend drier from Thursday onward with
large ridge of surface high pressure building into the region
from the North for most of the period.


Through 12Z Monday...Scattered clouds throughout the aerodrome
in daytime heating and moisture left in the boundary layer. For
KSLK/KMPV fog is possible but highly uncertain, and included
just a temp 2sm br and sct012. Temps tonight will likely hit the
dewpoint crossover temp, however working against that is lack of
recent rainfall and still relatively low dewpoints in the 50s.
Northwest to west winds to continue through overnight, then
become more southerly after 12z Monday has surface ridge shifts
to the east. Very little cloudiness on Monday.


Monday Night: VFR. Chance SHRA.
Tuesday: VFR/MVFR. Breezy. Chance SHRA...Slight Chance TSRA.
Tuesday Night: VFR/MVFR. Likely SHRA.
Wednesday: VFR. Slight Chance SHRA.
Wednesday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Thursday: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Thursday Night: VFR. NO SIG WX.
Friday: VFR. NO SIG WX.




NEAR TERM...Hanson
LONG TERM...Neiles
