NORTHERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
441 AM EDT FRI MAY 27 2016

...ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND...

.DISCUSSION...
A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL GRADUALLY BUILD ACROSS THE
REGION AND CONTINUE TO BRING ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO THE
AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL BE RUNNING 10 TO 20 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL
FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. MOISTURE WILL ALSO BE INCREASING ACROSS THE
AREA OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND THIS WILL RESULT IN AFTERNOON
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES ONLY LOWERING INTO THE 40 PERCENT RANGE WITH
GOOD RECOVERIES EXPECTED AT NIGHT. TODAY AND SATURDAY WILL SEE THE
POTENTIAL FOR SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING HOURS...BUT THE AREAL COVERAGE WILL BE A BIT LIMITED. AN
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL GRADUALLY MOVE INTO THE
REGION SUNDAY INTO MONDAY AND WOULD EXPECT AN INCREASE IN AREAL
COVERAGE OF THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...ESPECIALLY ON MONDAY.
COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER WILL RETURN TO THE AREA BY THE MIDDLE
PART OF NEXT WEEK.
