FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL/NORTHERN VERMONT AND  
NORTHERN NEW YORK  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT  
318 AM EDT THU SEP 24 2020  
   
..DRY WEATHER TO CONTINUE INTO SUNDAY
 
 
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST THE FIRST HALF  
OF THE UPCOMING WEEKEND AS WE CONTINUE TO BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF  
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE. THERE IS A VERY REMOTE CHANCE FOR A SHOWER OR  
TWO ACROSS FAR NORTHERN VERMONT TODAY AND AGAIN ON FRIDAY BUT ANY  
SHOWERS THAT MAY DEVELOP WOULD DROP LITTLE TO NO MEASURABLE RAINFALL.  
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE ON THE WARMING TREND WITH HIGHS GENERALLY  
IN THE 70S ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH THE WEEKEND. AS OUR TEMPERATURES  
WARM, OUR DEWPOINTS WILL ALSO BE ON THE RISE AS MOISTURE BEGINS TO WORK  
BACK INTO THE REGION. THIS SHOULD KEEP MIN RH VALUES IN THE AFTERNOON  
AROUND 50% WHILE WINDS WILL GENERALLY BE 10 MPH OR LESS ALTHOUGH A  
FEW GUSTS UP TO 15 MPH CANNOT BE RULED OUT.
