FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL/NORTHERN VERMONT AND
NORTHERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
325 AM EDT SAT SEP 20 2014

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE COAST OF NEW ENGLAND WILL BRING MILD...DRY
AND GUSTY CONDITIONS TO THE REGION TODAY. AS LOW PRESSURE APPROACHES
FROM THE WEST THERE WILL BE AN INCREASING CHANCE OF SHOWERS LATER
TONIGHT AND ESPECIALLY ON SUNDAY AS A COLD FRONT SWEEPS THROUGH THE
REGION. THE FRONT WILL CLEAR THE AREA DURING MONDAY...AND IT LOOKS
AS IF WE WILL BE IN FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF DRY WEATHER NEXT WEEK
AS A LARGE UPPER RIDGE BUILDS EAST FROM THE MIDWEST.
