Synopsis
Below normal temperatures will continue through the weekend. A
light snow will occur early this evening across portions of the
mid hudson valley into northwestern connecticut. While moderate
accumulations of lake effect snow are expected across portions
of the western adirondacks into Saturday. Otherwise fair weather
is expected through the weekend.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
As of 640 pm est... Mrms imagery shows very light snow ongoing
across dutchess and litchfield counties thanks to a passing
short wave and area of low pressure located off the mid atlantic
coast. The short wave remains progressive but does become
negatively tilted as it swing through and in response the
surface low will deepen as it heads northeastward. Only
expecting light snow in portions of the mid hudson and
northwestern connecticut as the heavier snow bands remain to our
south. Expected around an inch in litchfield county and less
than an inch across portions of dutchess county. This snow will
taper off by 7 to 9 pm from west to east.

After midnight, lake effect snows will develop late tonight
with accumulating snows occurring across the western
adirondacks, generally north of route 28 and west of route 30.

The bulk of the snowfall is expected to occur during the
overnight early morning hours.

Not nearing as cold as last night but still below normal with
lows mainly in the teens.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Monday
The lake effect snows will shift southward Saturday morning as
a cold front moves and will diminish late in the morning into
the early afternoon as ridging builds in and disrupts the favorable
low level flow. Additional accumulations will be light. Fair
weather is then expected through Sunday the ridge shifts
eastward across the region as the upper flow become flat nearly
zonal across the eastern united states. Temperatures will remain
below normal with another cold night Saturday in the wake of
the cold front. Lows Saturday night will generally in the single
digits into the teens with some below zero readings across a
portion of the western adirondacks.

Temperatures will moderate back to seasonable levels Sunday
night into Monday as warm front approaches. With this comes
chances for overrunning warm air advection precipitation. A
light snowfall is possible with it expected to become warm
enough Monday for some rain especially in the mid hudson valley
where it could reach 40 degrees.

Long term Monday night through Friday
Upper level flow will be fairly zonal across the region to start the
extended period, although a strong (yet fast moving) upper level
shortwave will be approaching for the middle of the week. Ahead of
this approaching feature, some light precipitation will be moving
across the region for Monday night into Tuesday, although coverage
will be fairly spotty due to the surface features being weak. With
a warming boundary layer, valley areas may generally see rainfall
(especially by Tuesday afternoon), with light snowfall for the
higher terrain and far northern areas. Any snowfall amounts will
generally be an inch or less, as total QPF is very light. Lows on
Monday night will be in the upper 20s to mid 30s with temps
rising late in the overnight. Highs on Tuesday will reach into
the 40s in many spots.

As the fast moving trough slides across the northeast, a quick shot
of cold air looks to move across the area for Wednesday. Temps will
be in the mid 20s to mid 30s with breezy northwest winds. Some lake-
effect snow will develop off lake ontario and produce some
accumulation for the western adirondacks and western mohawk valley
for late Tuesday night through Wed early. Lows on Wed night will be
much colder in the teens and 20s.

High pressure should allow for dry weather for much of Wednesday
night into Thursday with seasonable temperatures. The next storm
system looks to approach for some point late in the week and
into the weekend, as the models don't agree on the exact timing.

This storm looks to pass to our west, so a warmup with a
changeover to rain looks to occur for most of the area as precip
moves through the region. While precip could start as some
snowfall, most areas should see a majority of the precip as
rainfall, as temps warm into the 40s by Friday.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Flying conditions are currently ifr at kpou due to light snow
thanks to a passing coastal wave. Snow should end their within
the next hour or two, allowing forVFR conditions to return.

Cannot totally rule out some brief MVFR snow from reaching kpsf
over the next hour, otherwise, the remaining sites will stayVFR
with just bkn-ovc mid level clouds.

As the storm system departs, it will beVFR for the rest of the
night with light s-sw winds around 5 kts and just some sct-bkn
lingering clouds. During the day on Saturday, cannot rule out a
flurry at kpsf kalb due to lake-effect bands, but no
accumulation is expected and visibility shouldn't be impacted.

Otherwise, it will stayVFR on Saturday with west winds
increasing to around 10 kts with some higher gusts. Ceilings
will be bkn around 3500-5000 ft, but may start to sct out
towards evening.

Outlook...

Saturday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Sunday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Sunday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of sn.

Monday: moderate operational impact. Chance of ra... Sn.

Monday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of ra... Sn.

Tuesday: moderate operational impact. Chance of ra... Sn.

Tuesday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Shsn.

Wednesday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shsn.

Hydrology
No hydrologic problems are expected into early next weekend. Ice
will continue to form on areas lakes and streams. Any snowfall
will be light with the exception of moderate accumulations of
lake effect snow across portions of the western adirondacks into
Saturday morning.

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.
