Synopsis
High pressure will build eastward into the region today leading
to a partly sunny day across the region. On Saturday, another
dual low pressure system will advance northward into the great
lakes and up the east coast. This low pressure system will move
through the area on Sunday with rain. A cold front then moves
through Sunday night and Monday with strong winds.

Near term through Saturday
1045 am update...

high pressure will continue to yield a quiet day across the
region. Northwest flow off lake ontario will keep skies cloudy
across the forecast area with the exception of the far west and
south.

Temperatures and dew points are on track heading into the
afternoon hours. The forecast remains in good shape.

630 am update...

with the sunrise update, temperatures continue to trend a bit
warmer than what model guidance has based on cloud cover. This
was factored in for the remainder of the morning. Also, some
scattered flurries are ongoing in oneida county.

High pressure will build into the region today from the west. As
a result, low and mid-level clouds due to the northwesterly flow
off the lakes in place will slowly decrease today. Temperatures
should warm into the 30's given a moderating airmass and some
sunshine.

High pressure will be in place with somewhat clear skies and
light winds tonight. One thing to watch for will be the
potential formation of patchy fog. Right now dewpoint
depressions look to stay wide enough to prevent fog overnight.

Low temperatures will fall back to around 20 given a favorable
setup for some radiational cooling.

High clouds will increase on Saturday in advance of dual low
pressure systems moving north and northeast toward the region.

Enough moisture looks to overrun a warm front to bring in some
rain later in the day. Timing looks centered more during
Saturday night but the window of rain starting in the afternoon
across NE pa is present. Some uncertainty is present on the
exact timing. Highs should warm well above freezing into the
40's. Given boundary layer temperatures, model blends look
slightly cool with highs on Saturday.

Short term Saturday night through Sunday night
350 am update...

major storm impacts the area in the period. Strong surface low
lifts into the western lakes with a secondary development off
the virginia coast. Western surface low is essentially bombing
developing a tight pressure gradient over the area, assisted by
a cold front that sweeps through on Sunday. Winds over the
western part of the forecast area will approach warning
criteria. So with confidence passing the 50 percent threshold
and buf already posting a warning, have issued a watch for the
finger lakes through oneida county. As confidence grows and
forecast gets refined, area may be expanded.

Other concern is the possibility of a bit of freezing rain or
sleet over the far eastern zones Saturday night. Forecast
soundings show a cold layer stubbornly hanging in until almost
day break Sunday. Have added some ice to the grids over the
catskills and parts of the extreme north. Looks like an advisory
level event at worse with only a few hundredths ice
accumulation.

Previous discussion continues below.

3pm update...

Saturday... After a quiet start to the day, a powerful storm spinning
toward the ohio valley will spread rain into our forecast area
Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will climb into the lower-40s
during the day, but colder temperatures Saturday night will cause a
mix of rain and freezing rain or sleet to fall along our eastern ny
counties, mainly over the western catskills.

Sunday... The cyclone will track into northern michigan on Sunday and
pull very mild air and rain showers into ny and pa. Temperatures
will climb into the lower-50 Sunday afternoon with warmer
temperatures possible along the lake plain, before the cyclone drags
a strong cold front across our region and changes the rain showers
over to snow showers late Sunday night. The cyclone and cold front
will be accompanied by very gusty winds. At this time, the models
suggest potential for wind gusts in excess of 40 mph over a large
portion of the forecast area. Higher wind speeds are likely from the
central southern tier through the finger lakes and into the high
terrain of the western mohawk valley and western catskills. Stay
tuned for statements regarding the potential wind event.

Monday... Polar air behind the cyclone will pour into ny and pa
during this period. Scattered lake effect snow showers are
anticipated over northern sections of ny. Temperatures will reach
the lower or middle-30s on Monday, then fall into the teens Monday
night.

Long term Monday through Thursday
350 am update...

long term period features seasonably cold air and weak systems
bringing light snow and snow showers. Made only minor changes in
the long term to the temperatures and weather. Previous
discussion continues below.

300 pm update
some lingering lake effect snow showers are possible on
Tuesday, mainly in the morning in cny, then ending as high
pressure slides to the east and winds shift to a more easterly
direction. Then a weak wave may move into the area from the
midwest, which may bring a chance of light snow Tuesday night
into Wednesday. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty
regarding the track, timing, and strength of this system. Then
some lake effect snow showers are possible Wednesday night in
cny. High pressure then likely builds in for Thursday, bringing
drier conditions.

Temperatures during this period will remain seasonable with highs
generally in the mid 20s to mid 30s and lows generally in the teens
and lower 20s.

Aviation 16z Friday through Tuesday
A brokenVFR MVFR deck is across the region currently at all ny
taf sites. Any MVFR ceilings will slowly lift toVFR this
morning withVFR ceilings through the TAF period. Winds should
be 10 knots or less from the west and northwest then become
light and variable tonight. Although skies will clear some with
light winds, patchy fog is not expected at this time for all
taf sites overnight.

Outlook...

Saturday...VFR as high pressure builds overhead.

Saturday night through Sunday morning... Restrictions likely
with rain, perhaps briefly mixed with sleet at first. Low level
wind shear likely Saturday night from strong ssw low level jet.

Sunday afternoon through Monday... Rain showers changing back to
snow showers but also mainly impacting the ny terminals with
intermittent restrictions. Strong gusty winds expected,
especially ksyr.

Monday night and Tuesday... MainlyVFR conditions.

Bgm watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Ny... High wind watch from Sunday afternoon through Monday morning
for nyz009-015>018-022-023-025-036-037-044.
