    BORDER. IT COULD BE THAT THIS IS A SIGN THAT THE SNOW WONT LAST
    ALL THAT LONG (6 HOURS OR SO) IN ANY SPOT. HOWEVER, SOME GUIDANCE
    SUGGESTS LIGHT SNOW CONTINUES ALL THE WAY TO 12Z.

    GAVE IT MY BEST SHOT. IN GENERAL GOING WITH THE IDEA THAT THE BULK

    OR SO, WITH DIMINSHING SNOW THROUGH 03Z (AND MVFR CONDITIONS).
    AFTER THAT, VFR SHOULD BE THE RULE. MAY END UP NEEDING TO AMEND
    FORECASTS IF THE RADAR TRENDS INDICATE THE FORECASTS NEED SOME
    FIXING.

    NORTHERLY SURFACE WINDS WILL REMAIN GUSTY, ESPECIALLY IN THE
    CHAMPLAIN VALLEY. 20-25KTS SHOULD BE COMMON. PERHAPS SOME LOWER
    30KT GUSTS. THESE WINDS WILL DIMINISH BY LATE AFTERNOON. THOUGH
    NOT EXPLICITLY SHOWN IN THE TAFS, MINOR BLOWING SNOW MAY OCCUR AS
    WELL.

    FROM 12Z WEDNESDAY ONWARD, LOOKS LIKE VFR CONDITIONS AREA WIDE.

    OUTLOOK 18Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...

    18Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH 00Z FRIDAY...VFR.
    00Z FRIDAY THROUGH 00Z SATURDAY...MVFR/IFR IN PERIODS OF SNOW.
    00Z SATURDAY ONWARD...VFR.
