Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central/Northern Vermont and
Northern New York
National Weather Service Burlington VT
513 AM EDT Tue Jul 25 2017

...Wet and showery weather comes to an end today...

.DISCUSSION...
Upper level low pressure will slowly pull east of the area 
today with morning showers ending and skies trending mainly 
clear by late afternoon or early evening. After high pressure 
brings a short window of fair and dry weather on Wednesday, 
shower and thunder chances return by Thursday into Thursday 
evening as a weak front crosses the area. Dry conditions then 
return by next weekend as surface high pressure builds across 
the northeast. Given recent rains, soil and fine fuel moisture 
will remain quite high across the area until tomorrow afternoon
when better drying begins. Thus any fire weather concerns will
remain minimal over the next 24 hours.
