Synopsis
High pressure will slide off the east coast later today and
tonight. An approaching frontal system will bring the chance of
a wintry mix later tonight and early Friday. The front will
become nearly stationary over the area and remain in place right
into the weekend.

Near term /until 6 am Friday morning/
Satellite shows clear skies as high pressure slides overhead
toward the mid atlantic coast. High clouds continue to spill
over the upper ridge out of the central gr lakes, and these will
gradually overspread the region later today and tonight.

Return southerly flow will start to develop across the western
cwa by late afternoon and evening. Models show this increase in
warm advection and the development/enhancement of a warm front
extending all the way back to the parent low coming out of the
front range of the rockies. As the storm slowly begins to eject
east, the front is made to crawl north or become nearly
stationary over southern ny state.

The big issue for the near term forecast will be the potential
for a light wintry mix to overspread the region later tonight
as the strengthening wsw low level flow helps push a surge of
moisture into the region with the developing warm front. Surface
temps will be below freezing through at least mid morning
Friday. As a result we have issued a winter weather advisory for
about a 6 hour period of a light accumulation of freezing rain
and/or sleet.

Temps tonight will tend to be a non-diurnal as strong waa
develops across the region. Lows will be before midnight before
temperatures either become steady or slowly rise.

Short term /6 am Friday morning through 6 pm Friday/
The short range guidance suggests a slug of mainly light precip
will slide through the area later tonight through mid/late
morning Friday as the core of the low level jet pushes
eastward. The chances for freezing precip will decrease as
readings rise above 32 in most areas by mid to late morning.

What's left of the diffuse warm front is made to eventually
become strung out roughly along i-90. The main cold front
becomes snaked up north of the st. Lawrence leaving much of the
forecast area in the milder air by afternoon. The clouds will
mean we don't get too toasty, but rising into the 40s and 50s
will range from near normal over the NE to several degrees above
normal over the sw.

Long term /Friday night through Thursday/
A fairly large n-s temperature gradient will exist early in the
extended into the weekend as the surface boundary oscillates
across portions of the forecast area. This leads to a more or
less redundant mention of showery weather for several days right
into the middle of next week when a storm system is made to
finally bring a frontal system through the region, leading to a
drier second half of the week.

There is a small timing difference for this midweek front with
the ECMWF showing it passing about 12 hours sooner then the
gfs/gefs. This leads to a reduced confidence in the rainfall
forecast by day 6, so I made minimal changes to the forecast
during this time frame.

There is a higher confidence that drier air will prevail for the
end of the week along with temperatures that will cool to
slightly below seasonal norms as high pressure is tracked just
north of the region.

Aviation /19z Thursday through Tuesday/
Vfr will continue into the overnight before conditions begin to
deteriorate with the approach of a warm front and a mix of
snow, sleet and freezing rain.

The warm front will lift north Friday eventually bringing enough
warm air to end the wintry mix threat and change the
precipitation to plain rain by late morning.

Outlook...

Friday... Restrictions likely in rain, possibly starting as
brief freezing rain in the morning.

Saturday through Monday... Restrictions likely in rain. Some
freezing rain also possible Saturday night ksyr-krme, and
Sunday night for krme.
