Upper elevations are warmer than the valleys this morning. 41 here and 34 on top of Mt Washington. Also don't know if everyone here knows about my weather page at: http://www.robertlyonsphotography.com/webcam/index.php

Next few days look really bad.. They are starting to hint at a chance of snow sun night into monday, we'll have to see. Things should be a soggy mess by then :(

======================================

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
358 AM EST FRI JAN 5 2007

.SHORT TERM /TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/...
AREA OF LIGHT RAIN CONTINUES TO MAKE ITS WAY EAST-NORTHEAST TOWARD
THE NORTH COUNTRY. LOWER DEW POINTS IS RESULTING IN THE ATMOSPHERE
NEEDING TO MOISTEN SUFFICIENTLY TO PRODUCE PRECIPITATION AND THUS
MENTION PERIODS OF LIGHT RAIN THIS MORNING BEFORE TAPERING OFF TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS. TEMPERATURES ARE ABOVE FREEZING ALL AREAS AND
WITH LATER TIMING OF PRECIPITATION INTO EASTERN VERMONT...SHOULD NOT
BE A CONCERN FOR FREEZING RAIN. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WILL BE A
TENTH OF AN INCH OR LESS. WILL MENTION CATEGORICAL PRECIPITATION
CHANCES THIS MORNING BEFORE TAPERING OFF THE PRECIPITATION TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ONCE AGAIN BE 15 TO 20
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. FRONTOGENETIC FORCING IS STRENGTHEN OVER THE
AREA LATER TONIGHT AND THIS WILL ENHANCE ANOTHER ROUND OF RAIN
ACROSS THE AREA. THE RAIN WILL SPREAD FROM SOUTH TO NORTH AND
SHOULD ENCOMPASS THE ENTIRE AREA BY MIDNIGHT. TEMPERATURES WILL
HAVE ONLY FALLEN A COUPLE OF DEGREES FROM THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE
TODAY AS PLENTY OF CLOUD COVER AND HIGHER DEW POINTS PERSIST OVER
THE AREA. THE RAIN WILL CONTINUE SATURDAY MORNING BEFORE TAPERING
OFF. AREA TRIES TO GET INTO THE WARM SECTOR AND IT APPEARS SOUTH
CENTRAL VERMONT WILL HAVE THE BEST CHANCE AND COULD SEE TEMPERATURES
GETTING INTO THE LOWER 50S. SHOULD BE IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S
ELSEWHERE DESPITE CLOUD COVER AND ANY LINGERING PRECIPITATION.
COLDER AIR WILL BE SLOW TO GET INTO THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT AND WITH
DECREASING MOISTURE...THE BEST CHANCE OF ANY SNOW SHOWERS WILL BE
OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION ON
SUNDAY AND SOME SUNSHINE IS EXPECTED. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL STILL
BE ABOUT 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. SUNDAY NIGHT COULD BE INTERESTING
WITH UPPER TROUGH BEGINNING TO GET ESTABLISHED OVER THE REGION AND
LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING OVER THE CAROLINAS AND TRACKING INTO
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. PRECIPITATION SHIELD COULD EXTEND BACK INTO
OUR AREA AND COLD AIR MAY BE IN PLACE TO HAVE SOME SNOW DEVELOP OVER
THE AREA AFTER MIDNIGHT. WILL JUST MENTION A CHANCE OF SNOW AFTER
MIDNIGHT ALL AREAS FOR NOW...BUT SYSTEM WILL NEED TO BE WATCHED.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
UPPER TROUGH BECOMES ESTABLISHED OVER THE REGION EARLY IN THE
PERIOD. THIS WILL BRING PRECIPITATION CHANCES TO THE AREA ON MONDAY
AND TUESDAY. COLDER AIR WILL BE FILTERING INTO THE REGION AND THUS
THE MAJORITY OF THE PRECIPITATION THAT DOES OCCUR WOULD BE IN THE
FORM OF SNOW OR SNOW SHOWERS. HOWEVER...PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS ARE
NOT EXPECTED TO BE SIGNIFICANT. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION
ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AND THIS WILL BRING DRY WEATHER TO THE
AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL RETURN TO SEASON NORMALS THROUGH THE PERIOD.

Thanks for the link. Joshua's blog very eloquently forcasts it can go either way. But whether its written straight up like the National Weather report or all dressed up in the blog, its NOT in ANY outside winter sports enthusiast favor! :banghead: My biggest challenge this weekend is to stay optimistic. Hang tough fellow HCS'rs!

You know I've been hearing now "much colder next week" for the past 3 weeks. Every week goes bye and the cold weather never seems to get here. I've been hearing "Oh the jet stream is changing from a westerly flow to a northwest flow" Wrong again.

Well there goes all the theory's about bees nest, pine cones, Squirrels tail size and all the rest. Its just a plain old sucky warm winter! Again...
