6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Synopsis
A developing coastal low pressure system will form
southeast of the DELMARVA region overnight and track northeast to
near CAPE cod late Wednesday morning. This system is expected to
bring a moderate to heavy snowfall to much of the region overnight
into Wednesday. Seasonably cold and mainly dry weather is expected
Thursday with some lake effect snowfall northwest of the capital
district.

Near term through today
As of 1230 am est... Monitoring radar satellite trends and
surface observations for ongoing snow event. A fairly large
mesoscale band has set up across eastern ulster, dutchess,
northern litchfield and southern berkshire counties. Based on
reflectivity values of around 25 dbz, snowfall rates of around
one inch per hour occurring. These areas are all in a winter
storm warning. Farther north and west, snowfall rates are
lighter but snow is still accumulating. Snowfall reports from
the evening revealed generally 1-4 inches, with a few to several
more inches expected overnight through this morning.

The latest rap guidance with the goes-16 clean IR 10.35 micron
band satellite imagery overlaid continues to show cloud tops
cooling over much of the forecast area with the a positively
tilted mid and upper level trough centered over the central-
eastern great lakes region. A decaying primary sfc low has
drifted over the central ny-pa border. A secondary sfc coastal
low is continuing to form southeast of the DELMARVA corridor.

Over running moisture ahead of the coastal low continues to
spill into the region with a baroclinic zone set-up over eastern
ny and western new england. The current headlines look good
with warning for 5-10" of snow from the mid-hudson valley of
dutchess co., the taconics into eastern rensselaer county
eastward into western new england. West of the warning area,
advisories remain up for 4-8" in the capital region, eastern
catskills, schoharie valley, and the lake george region northern
saratoga region, and 2-6" further west.

With the approaching mid and upper level trough and a strong mid
and upper left front quadrant of a jet-streak nearby, recent
northeast cstar research would suggest the potential for a
quasi-stationary mesoscale band of snowfall on the northwestern
side of this developing low pressure area especially after
midnight to continue. The latest mesoscale models, including the
3-km hrrr and NAM do suggest the heaviest snowfall amounts
extending from the poconos northeast across the catskills, mid
hudson valley and into NW ct berkshires overnight.

The morning commute will likely be fairly difficult across much
of the area this morning due to the snow covered roadways and
low visibility. As the low pressure lifts up towards eastern new
england, snowfall will start to taper off from west to east
during the day. We will have to monitor for a brief period of
mohawk-hudson convergence mhc in the late morning into early
afternoon based on some of the mesoscale model trends including
the latest 3km nam. Based on the track of the cyclone, and the
local flow patterns in the adjoining valley, it is possible
referring to the mhc cstar conceptual model. Winds will switch
to the northwest behind the storm, but shouldn't be too strong
since the surface low is fairly weak, so blowing drifting
doesn't look like a concern with this event. Temps today will
generally be in the 20s, with a few spots in the mid-hudson
valley and NW ct reaching the low 30s. Clouds should be breaking
for some Sun during the afternoon from west to east as well.

Short term tonight through Friday
A ridge of high pressure will build in Wednesday night
providing mainly dry conditions. However, due to well aligned
westerly flow and borderline conditional lake induced
instability, there will be some lake effect snow showers across
the western adirondacks. Any accumulations should be light, with
shallow inversion heights of only around 850 mb are expected.

Temperatures will be near normal, with lows in the single digits
and teens.

Similar conditions should prevail on Thursday, with a flat
ridge in place and a westerly flow continuing. Again, some light
lake effect snow showers may affect the western adirondacks,
but dry conditions should prevail elsewhere. Snow showers may be
a bit more enhanced with greater coverage Thursday night across
the western southern adirondacks, as a fast-moving short wave
trough is expected to move through. Still, only minor
accumulations are forecast with mainly dry conditions elsewhere.

Temperatures will remain near normal during this time. Highs on
Thursday will be in the upper teens to lower 30s with lows
Thursday night in the mid teens to lower 20s.

On Friday, any lingering lake effect should end during the
morning with dry conditions expected Friday afternoon. Highs on
Friday will be in the mid 20s to mid 30s.

Long term Friday night through Tuesday
This period will mark a turn toward much above normal
temperatures... With highs mainly in the 30s and 40s each day, and
lows stating out mostly around 20 degrees Friday night, with mostly
upper 20s and lower 30s by Sunday and Monday nights. With mid-
january being albany's coldest time of the year, on average, lows
there are normally in the mid teens, with highs around 30 degrees.

High pressure centered over the deep south will build up into the
mid-atlantic region. An east-west frontal boundary will stay just
north of our zones as low pressure over the center of the contiguous
u.S. Develops and tracks across the great lakes and into southern
quebec through Monday night, displacing the high pressure and
bringing a good chance of rain showers throughout the area as early
as Sunday night, which could start as snow. By midday Monday, all
areas outside of the high peaks of the adirondacks will likely
experience pure rain shower activity ahead of a cold front which
will move quickly east across our zones Monday night. It will be
overcast with low instability. Only a modest decline in
temperatures will be experienced behind the front... To as low
as near normal.

Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
A double barrel low pressure system will continue impact the
area. The primary low over upstate ny has begun to weaken as
the secondary coastal low develops near delmarva. The coastal
low will become the dominate low as it deepens and moves south
of long island late this morning and quickly northeast of cape
cod by the afternoon with the steady snow tapering to snow
showers and flurries. The mesoscale band of snow is expected to
impact kpou and kpsf early this morning. There could be some
lingering snow across the capital district due to a brief period
of mohawk-hudson convergence into the afternoon.

Ifr and lower conditions through the overnight and morning hours
with an improvement to MVFR expected by early afternoon andVFR
by evening. Conditions expected to improve a bit quicker at kpou.

Light and variable to calm winds overnight and well into
Wednesday morning with a northwest flow developing at 6 to 10
knots shifting to the west in the evening.

Outlook...

Wednesday night to Saturday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Saturday night to Sunday: moderate operational impact. Chance
of shra... Shsn.

Hydrology
Ongoing flooding due to ice jams will continue to be addressed
with areal flood warnings. There could still be some lingering
issues as any existing ice jams may tend to become frozen in
place due to the continued cold temperatures expected over the
next few days. Warmer weather is not expected until the weekend.

In terms of precipitation, a moderate snowfall is expected for
much of the area from today into Wednesday, with heavy snowfall
from the mid hudson valley and taconics eastward across western
new england.
