.AVIATION /20Z Monday THROUGH Saturday/...
Through 18Z Tuesday...Current aviation obs show a mix of vfr to
lifr across our taf sites this afternoon. Occasional snow
showers will continue across northern NY into northern VT this
afternoon with intervals of ifr expected at slk/mss/mpv.
Otherwise...thinking southwest downslope winds at pbg/btv will
result in a mix of mvfr/vfr through the rest of today.
Meanwhile...this evening a weak front shifts our winds to the
northwest and the flow becomes blocked with developing low level
moisture. This will lower cigs after 03z to ifr levels at
btv/slk/mpv with periods of ifr possible at rut/mss. In
addition...this moisture may produce areas of freezing drizzle
or light snow flurries...especially slk/mpv with a light glaze
possible after 06z. Difficult to determine areal coverage and
potential impacts of freezing drizzle. Anticipating mvfr to ifr
vis in the mountain taf sites (mpv/slk) with mainly mvfr vis at
btv/rut/mss. Conditions will slowly improve from ifr to mvfr to
vfr across our taf sites by 18z tues with surface high pres
directly overhead. 

Outlook 18z Tuesday through Saturday...
Vfr with some lingering mvfr cigs at slk/mpv on Tuesday...before
another warm front produces another round of widespread light
snow across our region on Weds. Similar to Monday's event
thinking a period of ifr/lifr likely between 12z-18z Weds across
our taf sites with vis below 2sm and cigs between 500 feet and
2000 feet. An arctic boundary will produce more scattered snow
showers and potential snow squalls on Thursday into Friday with
brief periods of ifr conditions possible. Improving conditions
with mvfr valleys and ifr/mvfr in scattered snow showers persist
on Saturday.
