Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Morning fog and low clouds will give way to a mostly
sunny sky, along with a warm afternoon today. It will turn less
humid and breezy by late in the day thanks to another passing cold
front. High pressure will allow for sunny and pleasant weather
tomorrow, with warmer temperatures returning for Friday into the
holiday weekend. Some showers and thunderstorms are possible for the
weekend as well.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 917 am edt... Latest satellite imagery shows clearing
taking place as drier air starts to work into the region, which
should allow for skies to become mostly sunny during the
morning hours. Dewpoints will continue to be in the 50s through
most of the day.

With an upper level trough digging across quebec and into
northern new england, a secondary surface cold front will be
heading towards the area for the afternoon hours. However,
moisture will be limited, so despite good forcing and
instability in place, little precipitation is expected with this
boundary. Based off the 3km nam, cannot totally rule out a
shower over southern vermont, otherwise, it should be dry today
with a mix of Sun and clouds. Once the secondary boundary moves
through, dewpoints should quickly fall off into the 40s by late
today and northwest winds will start to become gusty.

Highs today will be noticeably warmer than yesterday thanks to
the return of sunshine. Most areas should reach well into the
70s, with some low 80s possible for the hudson valley.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday night
Winds will die off with the loss of daytime mixing and good
radiational cooling is expected tonight. Lows should be in the
40s to low 50s across the entire area.

On Thursday, high pressure will allow for plenty of sunshine,
with a pleasant afternoon and low humidity. Mixing will be
limited due to the strong subsidence in place, so winds won't be
too strong. Highs should reach the mid 60s to mid 70s.

As the high shifts offshore, a return flow will allow for a
warmer southerly flow at low levels for Friday and temps aloft
will start to warm as well. It still looks dry for most of the
area, although there will be more clouds around as compared to
Thursday. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s for valley areas,
with 70s for the higher elevations.

Warm and muggy conditions look to be in place for Friday night,
with lows in the mid 50s to mid 60s. A surface boundary will be
located just north of the area. While most of the region should
be dry, cannot totally rule out a shower or two dropping across
the adirondacks. Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy and dry across
the region.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
Upper energy currently in the western u.S. Expected to slowly drift
northeast into southern central canada then track near the u.S.

Canadian border this weekend, and east through the beginning of next
week. The slow movement will result in gradually increasing chances
for showers and scattered thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday, with
gradually decreasing coverage Monday. Thunderstorms should be timed
mainly in the afternoon and evening hours. There are some initial
hints for some decent instability Saturday afternoon and Sunday
afternoon and will keep monitoring for strong thunderstorm potential.

Indicating chances each day but some time windows during the weekend
could have likely coverage but it is too early to specify those time
windows and do not want to give the impression of a prolonged
washout this far out. There could be a pre frontal trough Saturday,
which would be the primary focus for any scattered shower storm
activity. Then a cold front is timed to track through our region
Sunday and Monday. The timing of the pre frontal trough and cold
front will need to be adjusted as we get closer to the weekend, so
we can again, time the best chances for showers and thunderstorms.

The front is expected to be far enough east of our region Tuesday
for the potential for dry weather by then.

Highs Saturday well into the 80s ahead of the prefrontal trough and
some upper 70s higher terrain. Highs Sunday with a bit better
coverage of clouds, showers and thunderstorms, in the upper 70s but
lower to mid 70s higher terrain. Highs Monday as the last of the
showers and thunderstorms exit, in the lower 70s but upper 60s to
around 70 higher terrain. Highs Tuesday with some dry weather and
sun possibly returning, in the mid to upper 70s but around 70 higher
terrain.

Aviation 13z Wednesday through Sunday
The surface wind shift is in the process of tracking through our
region and clouds are breaking up from north to south through the
hudson valley from kgfl through kalb and kpou. Low clouds are still
anchored to the berkshires and it should take at least until 14z for
kpsf to break out of the low clouds.

A drying airmass aloft will allow for increasing sunshine through
the morning and gusty winds will develop. Another reinforcing cold
front is expected to track through late this afternoon and night but
a lack of deep moisture will result in just an isolated shower or
thunderstorm if any even develop. Ceilings and visibilities remain
vfr through this afternoon and evening.

South to southwest winds at less than 10 kt at kalb, kgfl and kpsf
will continue through daybreak but near calm at kpou. A west to
north flow will spread across the region this morning with the
passage of the wind shift boundary, then increase through midday and
become gusty by afternoon with gusts 15-25 kt. Winds will diminish
to less than 10 kt this evening after the final reinforcing cold
front tracks through.

Outlook...

Thursday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Friday: low operational impact. Breezy no sig wx.

Friday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Saturday: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Saturday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Sunday: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Sunday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Memorial day: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Fire weather
Dry weather is expected over the next few days. Rh values will
fall to 35 to 45 percent by late today with northwest winds
increasing to 10 to 20 mph by later this afternoon as well.

After a recovery tonight, rh values will fall once again on
Thursday, with values as low as 25 to 30 percent in the
afternoon hours. Northwest winds will be 5 to 10 mph on
Thursday. The next chance of rain will be over the holiday weekend.

Hydrology
No hydrologic issues are anticipated over the next few days.

Showers have ended as a storm system departs away from the
region. A secondary cold front will move through today, but
little to no showers are expected due to limited moisture in
place. Dry weather is expected to continue for Thursday and
Friday with high pressure in control. As a result, rivers,
streams, lakes, ponds, reservoirs, brooks, creeks and kills
will remain fairly steady over the next few days.

Our next chance for scattered showers and possible thunderstorms
will be over the holiday weekend. Rainfall amounts will be
highly variable.

observed and forecast river stages and lake elevations, please

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
