1259 am est Wed jan 24 2018

Colder air will work into our region tonight, and generate light
lake effect snow and flurries through Wednesday across upstate
new york. High pressure will build in Thursday and Friday with
dry weather.

Near term through today
The cold front is passing through ny pa at this time with winds
shifting to the west. Scattered light shower activity will
continue through the afternoon hours, and then a lake effect
band will form this evening, producing rain showers initially
before cold air moves in and changes the precipitation to snow.

Snow showers will continue over our far northern forecast area
through Wednesday, shifting from northern oneida to onondaga
county as the winds fluctuate. We expect 1 to 3 inches of snow
over an 18-24 hour period.

Temperatures will be more seasonable Wednesday. Temperatures
will reach into the middle and upper-20s in the afternoon, then
fall off to between 10 and 15 degrees Wednesday night.

1100 am update...

moderate to heavy rain is moving northeast of the forecast area
and should be out of our region in the next hour. In the
meantime, we are watching river levels and a few ice jams.

Scattered showers will remain over ny and pa through this
afternoon. Light lake effect snow will move into our far
northern counties after sunset.

Short term tonight through Friday
High pressure will dominate the short term. Surface ridge builds
in Thursday bringing an end to the lake effect snow showers. A
clear night and light winds will bring a chilly
night... Especially east of i81 for Thursday night into Friday
morning... With lows near zero over oneida county. On Friday,
high slides east and warm air advection begins. Upper ridge is
still building so it will remain dry, and Sun will help boost
afternoon temps into the 30s.

Long term Friday night through Tuesday
Southwest flow of warm air develops behind the ridge, bringing
increasing moisture as well. Clouds will increase on Saturday,
with showers breaking out Saturday night. Euro has not caught up
with the GFS and sped up the passage of the front by late
Sunday, with cold air advection developing Sunday night into
early Monday. This will allow some of the rain to turn to snow
on Monday. A few snow and rain showers will linger into Monday
under the upper low and with the cold advection.

Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
06z update... Lake-effect snow in the vicinity of ksyr and krme
this morning will produce persistent ifr-below alternate
restrictions. Lower ceilings and flurries will bring fuel
alternate-MVFR restrictions to kbgm, kith, and kelm, while kavp

This afternoon, conditions improve slightly to fuel alternate-
MVFR at ksyr and krme, while these same restrictions continue at
kbgm and kith. Kelm should improve toVFR, while kavp stays

This evening, fuel alternate-MVFR ceilings continue at kith and
kbgm. In the meantime, conditions improve toVFR at ksyr and
krme after 02-03z, while kavp stays unrestricted.

Gusty w-nw surface winds through the day Wednesday, should
diminish a bit this evening.


Thursday through Saturday...VFR under high pressure.

Saturday night through Sunday... Restrictions likely in light

345 am update... Localized flooding due to ice jams is possible,
mainly through tonight. Rainfall amounts today are expected to
range mostly from 0.25-0.75", with locally higher amounts
possible in the poconos and western catskills. The snow pack
water equivalent going into this event was generally around 1
inch or less.

So, the combination of rain and snowmelt runoff will cause
rivers to rise which may break up the ice currently in place.

This may result in jams downstream. The most rainfall is
expected across the susquehanna river basin in northeast pa and
the delaware basin in ny and pa. However, ice jams can occur
along any rivers in our area. Overall, rain amounts,
temperatures, and snowmelt point to an isolated threat of ice
jam flooding, at worst. We will continue to monitor the
situation closely, and if higher rainfall amounts are observed,
or were to appear more likely, a flood watch could be issued at
that time.

Bgm watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Ny... None.

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.
