636 am edt Sat apr 29 2017

The chance for showers and thunderstorms will prevail each day
for the next week as an unsettled weather pattern parks over
the area. The next best chance for widespread showers will be
on Monday night as a cold front moves across the region.

Near term /through tonight/
350 am edt update...

showers and thunderstorms are moving eastward across nepa this
morning as a shortwave is riding along the outer edge of an
upper level ridge. These showers are also forming along and
south of a weak sfc boundary. Guidance is hinting at that this
wave will shift slightly northward and the sfc boundary will
transition into a warm front, and the wave aloft may provide
enough dynamic support aloft for a few showers to develop over
the region. However, confidence is not so high with this
solution will pan out as guidance is having a very hard time
grasping current conditions. Thus decided to keep low pops
through the morning and afternoon.

Sfc temps will highly depend on how far north the warm front
propagates. This time of the year, warm fronts usually have a
hard time tracking to far north. Thus, there will be a large
gradient across the region. Temps across nepa will likely reach
the mid to uppr 70s. Temps across central ny may reach the low
to mid 60s.

The weather pattern this afternoon/evening consists of a prominent
592 dam ridge parked over the southeast CONUS and a potent uppr lvl
trough digging southward along the rockie mountains. This pattern
will allow multp waves to move across the region, all of which may
produce an environment conducive for showers and an isolated
thunderstorm to develop. Thus, there is pretty much a chance for
precip for the next 24 hours. There may be a brief lull in activity
from 00z Sun to 06z sun, but the remaining portions of the forecasts
could see a shower.

Temps this evening will again be highly dependent on where the
frontal boundary falls. Temps north of the front will likely range in
the low to mid 40s. While temps south of the warm front will likely
range in the uppr 40s to low 50s.

Short term /Sunday through Monday night/
350 am edt update...

the weather pattern aloft will continue to prevail through the
day on Sunday. Again, there will be a chance for showers and an
isolated thunderstorms through the whole day as multp waves
aloft will move across the region creating an environment
conducive for showers and thunderstorms. This type of
environment it is very hard forecast the timing of the showers
as guidance struggles with this environment.

On Monday the next storm system, a closed low, will move through the
region and bring the next widespread chance for showers and
thunderstorms across the region. The sfc low is expected to track ne
across the great lakes region, and push a cold front across the
region Monday night. ATTM most of the area is under a marginal risk
issued by spc. There is an ample amount of shear however the main
question to the event is "will there be instability". If we can get
a decent amount and the front moves across the region during the
appropriate time, severe thunderstorms may not be completely
out of the question. Wind would be the primary threat. Will
closely monitor the situation as the system approaches.

Temps on Monday will be well above the seasonal avg. Ranging in the
uppr 70s to low 80s.

Long term /Tuesday through Friday/
225 pm update...

an unsettled pattern is forecast, with temperatures trending
toward cooler than normal. A mean trof will remain fixed over
eastern canada through Thursday. Weak waves riding through the
flow over the great lakes will keep the threat of isolated to
scattered rain showers over ny and pa.

Highs in the upper 60s on Tuesday will fall into the upper 50s
by Thursday.

Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/
A cold front is moving slowly across southern pennsylvania while
high pressure builds into ny. This high pressure will keepVFR
conditions across our TAF sites as it suppresses the convection
along to front to the south. A light west/northwest wind will
develop as the high builds in today.


Sunday through Sunday night...VFR majority of the time, but
rounds of showers or thunderstorms could bring occasional

Monday through Tuesday... Good chance of restrictions from
showers and thunderstorms as frontal system moves through.

Tuesday night through Wednesday... MainlyVFR but small chance of
showers/brief restrictions for mainly ny terminals.

Bgm watches/warnings/advisories
Pa... None.

Ny... None.

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.
