Synopsis
Snow will be ending this morning as a storm system
departs the region. An arctic frontal boundary will move through
the area on Wednesday, with some snow showers, squalls and gusty
winds. Behind the front, bitter cold temperatures will move in for
thanksgiving and Friday. Temperatures will slowly moderate over the
weekend with the potential for light rain and a wintry mix.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Back edge of light snow and in some cases light snow mixed with
drizzle and light rain sprinkles is tracking through our
region. Temperatures are in the mid 30s in many areas with a few
upper 30s southern areas and some lower 30s higher terrain.

Since the intensity of the snow has decreased and areal coverage
is decreasing, canceling the advisory as just a dusting of
additional accumulation in high terrain is expected and no
accumulation in valleys and no accumulations in areas currently
in the mid to upper 30s.

Some minor adjustments to precipitation chances, sky cover and
temperatures through this afternoon. High today will generally
be in the low to mid 30s for the high terrain and the mid to
upper 30s for valley areas.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday
On the back side of this impulse tonight, lake effect
snow showers may be possible in the dacks, but other locations
should remain dry. Temperatures overnight will dip into the
teens and low 20s.

On Wednesday, the leading edge of strong, deep cold advection
(arctic front) tracks through our region. The strong low level
forcing and steep low level instability will likely support
development of a snow showers and squalls that will impact the
region during the afternoon and evening hours. Multiple high res
models indicate convective-type snow squalls across the region
during this time frame and will likely impact holiday travelers.

Expect quick bursts of snow with rapidly changing visibilities
and potentially slick roadways. Additional upper level forcing
will track across our northern zones early Wednesday morning.

This could lead to advisory-level snowfall in the southern
adirondacks prior to the snow squall development in the
afternoon and an advisory may be needed later today. Highs
Wednesday are expected in the mid to upper 30s but mid to upper
20s across northern areas. Temperatures drop sharply along and
behind the arctic front.

The sky will clear Wednesday evening as deep cold advection and
gusty northwest winds spread across the region. Lows will
plummet into the single digits Wednesday night with some lake
effect snow bands into the western mohawk valley and southern
adirondacks through early Thursday morning. Wind chill values
will range from 5 to 20 degrees below zero Wednesday night.

Gusty winds along with bitter cold temperatures will be in place
for the thanksgiving holiday, albeit plenty of sunshine. High
temperatures will struggle to get out of the single digits in
the dacks to teens in the valleys, with multiple records being
threatened. See the climate section below for thanksgiving
holiday temperature records.

Long term Thursday night through Monday
The extended forecast begins frigid for late november with a january
type arctic air mass over the region. The mean longwave trough will
impact the northeast through the holiday weekend, though there is a
moderation of temperatures by the weekend. An active pattern sets
up for the second half of the weekend into next week with a blocking
ridge downstream over the north atlantic, and a few coastal
disturbances potentially impacting the region.

Thanksgiving night into Friday night... Arctic high pressure settles
over the region thanksgiving night with diminishing winds and
bitterly cold temps. H850 temps will still be 2-3+ std devs below
normal based on the latest 00z gefs. The actual h850 temps will be
in the -17c to -20c range based on the 00z gfs. Ideal radiational
cooling conditions will set up with clear mostly clear skies and
calm winds. Lows will plummet to zero to 10 below over the southern
adirondacks, lake george region, portions of the mohawk valley and
southern vt with single digits from the capital region south and
east. The arctic sfc anticyclone will slowly shift south and east
of region, and off the southern new england coast by Friday evening.

The strong subsidence from the sfc ridge will yield mostly sunny and
dry conditions with highs still 15 to 20 degrees below normal with
mid and upper 20s in the valley areas, and upper teens to mid 20s
over the hills and mountains. Another cold night is expected fri
night, but low to mid level warm advection will begin as some high
clouds may stream in from the west to southwest after midnight. The
h500 ridge axis moves east of the forecast area by daybreak, as a
digging trough approaches from the midwest and southeast. Lows will
be in the teens with some single numbers over the adirondacks, and a
few lower 20s over the mid-hudson valley southern litchfield county.

Saturday-Saturday night... Warm advection begins ahead of the upper
trough, and wave of low pressure forming near southeast ga and
coastal nc in the morning. The 00z ECMWF holds the pcpn off most of
the day ahead of the warm front and coastal wave. The 00z GFS is a
little quicker with some pcpn getting in locations mainly west of
the hudson river valley. It could begin as a light mix, as removing
the shallow cold air may take time. It is way too early to pinpoint
exact mixed ptypes. The better threat for a light mix based on a
blend of the latest gfs ECMWF thermal profiles with a top down
method is Saturday night. We did get some sleet freezing rain for
southern vt especially east of the green mtns, and near the
foothills of the southern adirondacks. However, we have primarily a
rain snow transition to rain Saturday night. Temps should be rising
overnight, and we did use a non-diurnal trend. Highs rise into 30s
to lower 40s. The lower 40s will from the capital district south and
east. Pops were raised to likely values Saturday night, as
southeast LLJ will focus some atlantic moisture into the region head
of the coastal low and its associated warm front. The pcpn could be
moderate to heavy, as the h500 trough becomes negatively tilted
right over ny and new england. Placement of the coastal low varies
on the medium range guidance and ensembles. The placement of the
coastal low and thermal profiles will play a huge role on the ptypes
and amount of qpf. Lows Sat night will be in the upper 20 to mid 30s
or so.

Sunday into Monday... The coastal low and associated mid and upper
trough move downstream of the region with rain likely tapering to
scattered showers for the second half of the weekend. Temps trend
closer to normal values on Sunday with upper 30s to around 40f over
the higher terrain, and lower to mid 40s in the valleys. A brief
lull may occur Sunday night, but yet another complex storm system
will be moving out of the midwest ohio valley and the mid atlantic
states. This double barrel low pressure system will bring unsettled
weather back into the region with increasing chances of showers
especially Monday afternoon. Lows will be mainly in the 30s Sunday
night, and highs maybe similar to Monday. If these pcpn events
trend wet mainly a rain ptype and heavy in terms of qpf, then
hydro concerns may increase early in the week for portions of the
hydro service area.

Aviation 18z Tuesday through Sunday
As a storm system departs, precipitation over the region will be
ending shortly (probably within the next hour or two). Until
that occurs, ifr conditions are expected for all sites due to
lingering low ceilings and low visibility within light snow.

Have included tempos at all TAF sites for the next few hours,
but conditions should be improving back to MVFR and eventually
vfr by later today, as the storm departs and some drier air
starts to work into the region from the west. Light w-nw winds
today will become west by late today at 5-10 kts.

Skies will clear out this evening, but high and mid level clouds
will quickly return overnight as the next frontal boundary
approaches. Westerly winds will be around 5 kts and will become
southwest by daybreak and start to increase to over 10 kts.

There will be a chance for some snow showers along this
boundary by late in the morning on Wednesday, but the best
chance is probably during the early afternoon hours. Within any
snow shower, visibility and ceilings may briefly be reduced down
to ifr lifr levels and winds will become very gusty as well.

Some gusts over 30 kts are possible on Wednesday, especially
along and just behind the arctic frontal boundary.

Outlook...

Tuesday night: low operational impact. Slight chance of shsn.

Wednesday: moderate operational impact. Breezy chance of shra... Shsn.

Wednesday night: low operational impact. Breezy slight chance of shsn.

Thanksgiving day: low operational impact. Breezy no sig wx.

Thursday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Friday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Friday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Saturday: moderate operational impact. Chance of ra.

Fire weather
A mix of rain and snow will continue through this morning as
low pressure tracks south of the region. Some lake effect snow
showers will be possible tonight into Wednesday morning across
the adirondacks. Then, chances for snow and snow squalls will be
possible on Wednesday as a strong arctic front crosses through
the region. This will bring a blast of extremely cold air for
thanksgiving day where high temperatures will struggle to get
out of the single digits and teens.

Hydrology
River flows will continue to lower into next week with colder
than normal temperatures continuing, and mainly light
precipitation events. No widespread hydro problems are
anticipated.

A disturbance and a cold front will bring chances of snow or a
rain-snow mix (in the mid-hudson valley and NW ct) through this
morning. QPF totals of a tenth of an inch to up to half of an
inch is expected, with the higher amounts south and east of the
greater capital district.

Scattered snow showers and squalls are expected along a cold
front Wednesday. Colder than normal temperatures persist into
the thanksgiving holiday with flows continuing to recede.

and forecast river stages and lake elevations, please visit the
advanced hydrologic prediction service AHPS graphs on our
website.

degrees, set on thanksgiving day (november 28th) 1901. The record
low minimum for thanksgiving for albany is 5 degrees (november 23rd)
1972.
