Snow will taper off by midday in the western catskills as an
area of low pressure exits. Quiet weather is expected into the
weekend with gradually warming temperatures. May see a mix of
rain and snow to start next week.

Near term through Thursday
11 am update...

local radars show an area of light snow over the western
catskills which is occurring in an area of frontogenetic
forcing in a layer from 850-700mb. This area of enhancement
will lift out around midday as area of forcing is progressive
with open wave in the mid levels. Snow accumulations here will
generally be an inch or less. For the remainder of today lake
effect snow showers are expected in northern oneida county with
minor snow accumulations. Cold air advection will keep
temperatures in the teens across central new york with reading
falling into the teens in the wyoming valley.

320 am update...

ongoing snow this morning is the main concern in the near term
with additional light accumulation expected across NE pa and
into parts of s-central ny, including the SRN catskills.

Winter weather advisory continues... With the western edge of
counties in central ny and bradford county in pa ending at 5 am
and the remaining counties to the east going until 9 am this

Incoming cold upper level trough from the west is combining
with a developing surface low off the delaware coast this
morning to produce an enhanced area of precipitation... Mainly
snow... Across ERN pa into new england. The area of light to
moderate persistent snow extends from near williamsport through
wilkes-barre, pa and monticello, ny to near albany and wrn
massachusetts. Weak mid-level f-gen, strong dynamics aloft in
the left exit region of a 140kt jet, and plenty of moisture
entrainment from the south has allowed this system to become
fairly efficient, with widespread snow amounts around 2 to 4
inches through the day yesterday and this morning... And a few
localized amts 5 inches plus. Should see an additional 1 to 3
inches this morning before the system lifts out by late
morning... With the highest amts in the elevated terrain of the
catskills and poconos.

Behind the front, cold air will begin to pour in from the W nw
through the day today. Most areas will see their high
temperatures early this morning, with temps falling this morning
into the teens and either remaining steady or rising slightly
into the lower 20s in the afternoon as skies attempt to clear
out. May see a good bit of lake effect clouds off erie and
ontario... With a band of weak lake effect snow to the north
possibly impact parts of oneida county today through Thursday.

Otherwise, most locations should remain quiet with light west
winds... Occasionally gusty around 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon
and temperatures tonight in the single digits and lower teens
before warming back into the mid to upper 20s on Thursday.

Short term Thursday night through Friday
320 am update...

upper level trough over the northeast us providing below normal
temperatures to start but not as cold as recently. A low level flow
from the west and northwest will keep weak lake enhanced snow
showers across the far north including the thruway and
syracuse utica rome areas into Friday. Snow amounts will be light.

Mostly under an inch for 12 hours. The tug could get an inch to 3
inches total. Thursday evening a short wave zips through with a
brief enhancement. In general snow showers weak with shallow
moisture, dendrite zone well above it, minimal lift, and not enough
cold air.

Further south some colds but dry. Low temperatures everywhere in the
teens. Friday more of the same with highs in the 30s.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
320 am update...

Friday night into Sunday mainly dry with a moderating trend. Small
chances of showers in the far west and north as weak waves pass
through southern canada. Warmer and eventually moist air comes in
from the west and southwest. Any precipitation that falls could be
rain and or snow depending on the temperature. By Monday low
temperatures in the 30s and highs well into the 40s. This will be
the warmest day of the upcoming week. This warm air will likely melt
much of the snow across central ny and nepa.

Models a little slower with a strengthening storm moving from the
southern plains into the western great lakes Sunday to Tuesday. Most
of our precipitation will be rain Monday afternoon and Monday night
ahead of a cold front. Rain amounts continue to be half an inch to
an inch. Rain will end as snow late Monday night and Tuesday. Snow
showers will most likely continue in ny into Wednesday in the wrap
around moisture. Temperatures drop into the 30s. Will need to watch
the snow melt and rainfall to see what the rivers and the ice in
them does.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
