136 PM EDT MON SEP 22 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A SURFACE COLD FRONT WHICH BROUGHT SHOWERS TO THE REGION YESTERDAY
AND THIS MORNING WILL SHIFT EAST OF THE AREA TODAY WITH SCATTERED
SHOWERS TAPERING OFF. HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO BUILD ACROSS THE
NORTHEAST TONIGHT...AND WILL DOMINATE THE NORTH COUNTRY'S WEATHER
FOR THE NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL TREND BELOW NORMAL FOR THE
FIRST HALF OF THE WEEK...THEN WARM TO ABOVE NORMAL NEXT WEEKEND.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 7 PM THIS EVENING/...
AS OF 945 AM EDT MONDAY...FORECAST REMAINS ON TRACK FOR TODAY AS
COLD FRONT IN PROGRESS OF CLEARING OUR SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES AS OF
900 AM. STILL COULD SEE A BRIEF LIGHT SHOWER/SPRINKLE IN LINGERING
POST FRONTAL MOISTURE AS COLD THERMAL ADVECTIVE PROCESSES
CONTINUE...BUT THIS SHOULD MAINLY BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER
TERRAIN THROUGH LATE MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON. VALLEY LOCALES
MAINLY DRY. WINDS WEST TO NORTHWESTERLY AND BLUSTERY TODAY AS
READINGS HOLD STEADY IN THE 45 TO 55 RANGE. ONLY NOTABLE CHANGES
WERE TO ADJUST SKY TOWARD CURRENT OBSERVATIONAL TRENDS...WHICH RAP
850 RH PROGS APPEAR TO BE HANDLING WELL. ALSO TWEAKED POPS
DOWNWARD A TAD...ESP LARGER VALLEYS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.

&&

.SHORT TERM /7 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
AS OF 330 AM EDT MONDAY...MONDAY NIGHT WILL MARK THE BEGINNING OF
AN EXTREMELY QUIET AND PLEASANT STRETCH OF FALL WEATHER ACROSS THE
NORTH COUNTRY. AFOREMENTIONED HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE OHIO RIVER
VALLEY SLOWLY BUILDS EASTWARD INTO THE NORTHEAST THROUGH THE
PERIOD...WITH GENERALLY CLEAR AND DRY CONDITIONS EXPECTED. LOWS
WILL RUN A BIT BELOW NORMAL IN THE MID 30S TO MID 40S...BUT HIGHS
WILL BE RIGHT AROUND NORMAL RANGING THROUGH THE 60S.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
AS OF 223 AM EDT MONDAY...THE 00Z ECMWF/GFS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT
THE IDEA OF AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF WARMER AND DRIER WEATHER...WITH
A DEEP-LAYER RIDGE IN CONTROL ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES AND NERN
CONUS. LOOK FOR PLENTY OF SUNSHINE THROUGH THE PERIOD AND WARMING
TEMPERATURES. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE LOW TO MID 70S 
(8-10 DEG ABOVE NORMAL)...AND POSSIBLY IN THE UPPER 70S FOR
SATURDAY. AIR MASS WILL BE RELATIVELY DRY...WITH LOWS DROPPING
INTO THE MID 40S TO LOW 50S ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY. ANTICIPATE
SOME PATCHY NOCTURNAL FOG IN THE FAVORED RIVER VALLEYS OF CENTRAL
AND EASTERN VERMONT EACH NIGHT. POPS NIL THROUGH THE PERIOD.

&&

.AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
THROUGH 18Z TUESDAY...CEILINGS SLOWLY LIFTING AND ALL ARE VFR
EXCEPT MVFR CIG AT KSLK. GUSTY WEST WIND WILL CONTINUE INTO THE
EVENING...THEN WILL LOSE THE LOWER LEVEL CLOUDS AND WINDS WILL
ABATE. STILL EXPECT A WEST TO NORTHWEST WIND AROUND 5 KT ALL TAF
SITES OVER NIGHT. WENT WITH BKN100 CIG DURING OVERNIGHT BUT
POSSIBLE THAT COULD SCATTER. WITH PARTIALLY CLEARING SKIES THERE
IS A RISK FOR IFR FOG TO DEVELOP KSLK/KMPV...BUT FEEL THAT THE
SURFACE WINDS WILL REMAIN STRONG ENOUGH TO PREVENT NECESSARY
RADIATIONAL COOLING. 12-18Z MID CLOUD DECK RETURNS ASSOCIATED WITH
WEAK SHORTWAVE TROUGH PASSING.  

OUTLOOK 18Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...
VFR THROUGH THE PERIOD EXCEPT FOR IFR/LIFR IN EARLY MORNING FOG AT
KSLK/KMPV EACH MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH
THE WEEKEND.

&&

.MARINE...
A LAKE WIND ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO
THE EVENING. GUSTY WEST WINDS FROM 15 TO 25 KNOTS HAVE DEVELOPED
AND WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY. THIS WILL
CREATE WAVES FROM 2 TO 4 FEET...GREATEST ALONG THE EASTERN SIDE OF
THE LAKE AND ALONG WESTWARD FACING SHORES. WINDS WILL TAPER DOWN
AFTER 8 PM TONIGHT TO 10 TO 20 KNOTS...WITH WAVES SUBSIDING TO 1
TO 2 FEET.
