326 am edt Fri mar 24 2017
High pressure will slide off the east coast tonight. An
approaching frontal system will bring a wintry mix late tonight
and early Friday. The front will become nearly stationary over
the area and remain in place right through the weekend with
periods of rain.
Near term /until 6 am this morning/
7 pm update...
clear skies and high pressure giving way to mid and high clouds
moving in from the northwest. Winter weather advisory continues
for late tonight and Friday morning for some light freezing
rain. Timing and amounts look good. Any sleet will also be light
and well under an inch. Adjustments to the hourly temps and
dewpoints. Still a dry airmass with dewpoints in the single
digits and temps falling through the 30s.
satellite shows clear skies as high pressure slides overhead
toward the mid atlantic coast. High clouds continue to spill
over the upper ridge out of the central gr lakes, and these will
gradually overspread the region later today and tonight.
Return southerly flow will start to develop across the western
cwa by late afternoon and evening. Models show this increase in
warm advection and the development/enhancement of a warm front
extending all the way back to the parent low coming out of the
front range of the rockies. As the storm slowly begins to eject
east, the front is made to crawl north or become nearly
stationary over southern ny state.
The big issue for the near term forecast will be the potential
for a light wintry mix to overspread the region later tonight
as the strengthening wsw low level flow helps push a surge of
moisture into the region with the developing warm front. Surface
temps will be below freezing through at least mid morning
Friday. As a result we have issued a winter weather advisory for
about a 6 hour period of a light accumulation of freezing rain
Temps tonight will tend to be a non-diurnal as strong waa
develops across the region. Lows will be before midnight before
temperatures either become steady or slowly rise.
Short term /6 am this morning through Sunday/
The short range guidance suggests a slug of mainly light precip
will slide through the area later tonight through mid/late
morning Friday as the core of the low level jet pushes eastward.
The chances for freezing precip will decrease as readings rise
above 32 in most areas by mid to late morning. What's left of
the diffuse warm front is made to eventually become strung out
roughly along i-90. The main cold front becomes snaked up north
of the st. Lawrence leaving much of the forecast area in the
milder air by afternoon. The clouds will mean we don't get too|
toasty, but rising into the 40s and 50s will range from near
normal over the NE to several degrees above normal over the sw.
Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/
315 pm update... On the large-scale, a fairly energetic pattern
will continue next week, with frequent short-waves crashing the
pacific coast near northern ca/or. These waves eventually
turn northeastward over the eastern conus, as they ride over a
flat ridge axis near the gulf coast. What this means for
cny/nepa is frequent periods of rain/showers, with temperatures
near normal for late march (highs mostly in the 40s-mid 50s).
Daily weather-wise, the first couple of short-waves alluded to
above will affect the region early next week, with rainy
conditions through Tuesday. A surface ridge may temporarily
build southward out of canada Wednesday-Thursday, to bring
drier/chillier weather. Towards the end of the week, showers
should re-enter the picture, with moderating temperatures.
Aviation /07z Friday through Tuesday/
Vfr/unrestricted conditions will continue through about daybreak
Thereafter, lower ceilings (MVFR/alternate required) and
freezing rain/sleet will develop across our cny/nepa terminal
sites. We expect freezing precipitation to last for 1-3 hours,
before temperatures climb above freezing, with occasional rain
showers for much of the afternoon hours.
This evening, ceilings are expected to lower into the ifr
category, along with patchy fog/drizzle, for most terminals.
The exceptions may be kavp and kelm, which may hang onto
MVFR/alternate required restrictions.
Llws will be a concern this morning, when a strong SW low-level
jet overruns the region (45-50 kt at around 2000 feet). This
afternoon, surface winds will be s-sw at most sites, except e-se
at krme and ksyr, with occasional gusts of 20-22 kt. Winds
should diminish somewhat this evening.
Saturday through Tuesday... Restrictions likely in rain. Some
freezing rain also possible late Saturday night ksyr-krme, and
late Sunday night for krme.

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.
