Synopsis
In the wake of a cold front, breezy and cooler conditions are
expected today with a mix of Sun and clouds. Another cold front
will pass through tomorrow with a few passing showers. This front
will usher in the chilliest air mass of the fall season, with a
widespread frost and freeze expected for Wednesday night into
Thursday morning. Below normal temperatures are expected to continue
for the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
As of 110 pm edt, latest radar imagery shows lake effect showers
breaking apart and this is also evident in recent satellite
imagery. So have trended pops down for the next few hours to
reflect this trend. Also freshened up the hourly temps and sky
cover but otherwise, the forecast remains on track today.

Prev disc... As of 1030 am edt... 12z upper air data from here
and buf indicate the inversion levels were near h825 with steep
lapse rates below. With temperatures between -2c and -4c at the
top of the inversion, delta t S are rather high which is
resulting in lake effect showers downwind of lake ontario. Ktyx
radar indicates a couple bands of showers across the tug hill
and approaching western portion of north-herkimer county. So
with this update did increase pops to slight chance for northern
herkimer and into portions of hamilton county. Otherwise, brisk
conditions with mountain clouds and forecast highs look in good
shape.

Prev disc... Surface cold front has pushed east of the region
and is currently off the coast of new england. The strong storm
system associated with this boundary continue to quickly lift
across eastern canada, while it rapidly deepens. As high
pressure starts to nose into the region from the midwest, the
pressure gradient will start to relax and gusty winds will be
diminishing this morning.

Although southern and eastern areas continue to see a lot of
passing mid and high level clouds early this morning, they will
be decreasing over the next several hours. However, the
northwest flow associated with strong cold air advection will
allow for some lake moisture to aid in producing some straotcu
clouds for the day today, so sky cover will generally be partly
sunny, especially for western areas. There could be a few lake-
effect rain showers or sprinkles over the western mohawk valley
or western adirondacks this morning, but the bulk of this
activity looks to remain west of the area.

Highs today will be noticeably cooler than yesterday with mid
40s to mid 50s. The warmest temps will be across southeastern
areas, with the coolest temps over the adirondacks.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday night
Shortwave trough will be moving from the upper midwest towards
the great lakes for tonight. As this next system starts to approach
the region tonight, the flow will mainly be out of the west to
southwest. With the forcing still far enough to the west, it
should remain dry for most of the night, although cannot rule
out a few showers towards daybreak Wednesday over the
adirondacks, as the southwest flow aloft aligns itself over the
eastern great lakes. Otherwise, clouds will gradually be
increasing with a light breeze in place. Temps look to fall into
the mid 30s to low 40s this evening and hold fairly steady for
most of the night.

On Wednesday, the shortwave trough will be sliding across the
northeast. This will be a rather winter-like shortwave trough,
with a strong surface cold front, sharp cold pool aloft, and a potent
jet streak and associated area of vorticity at 500 hpa. Moisture
will be limited, so precip along the boundary looks fairly
scattered. It may be somewhat aided by areas downwind of lake
ontario and in upslope favored areas, but not all locations will
see showers with the passage of this front on Wednesday.

The front looks to move through by the early afternoon, with
falling temps and gusting winds behind the passing front for
later in the day. Early afternoon highs look to be in the mid
40s to mid 50s.

Strong cold air advection behind the boundary will allow 850 hpa
to fall to -6 to -10 degrees c for Wednesday night. Most
locations will be clearing out, although west to northwest
winds will remain breezy. Despite the wind, temps will fall
quickly, with lows in the mid 20s to mid 30s. Most areas will
see a widespread frost and even a freeze for much of the region.

Will need a frost advisory freeze warning for areas where the
growing season is still ongoing (hudson valley and lower
litchfield ct).

In addition, the cold temps aloft will allow a band of lake-
effect precip to develop off lake ontario on Wed evening and
continue into Wed night. Initially, westerly flow will orient
this band over the western adk mohawk valley, but as the flow
shifts to the northwest on the backside of the departing
trough, the band will move south towards schoharie county and
the eastern catskills. With lake temps still around +13 c, this
will allow for moderate to extreme instability, which should
allow for a stream of heavy, cellular activity. At first, the
boundary layer will only support rain showers, but as it cools
off, this should changeover to snow. A light accumulation of up
to an inch is possible, mainly for high terrain and grassy,
non-paved surfaces across the western parts of the area under
this band.

By Thursday morning, the lake-band will be limited to just
central ny and dry conditions are expected across our area for
the day. High pressure will be trying to build into the region
from the ohio valley and plenty of Sun is expected. Despite the
sun, temps will be very cold for mid-october, with highs only in
the mid 30s to mid 40s. With a northwest breeze in place, it
will feel even colder. Another cold night is expected on
Thursday night with a mostly clear sky and continued dry
conditions. Lows will be in the mid 20s to mid 30s once again,
allowing for another frost freeze.

Long term Friday through Tuesday
Unsettled weather over the weekend, especially for Saturday. The
period will start out with near seasonable temperatures however a
colder airmass will be ushered back into the region to close out the
weekend and start the new work week.

On Friday, an upper ridge is expected to crest over the region while
the center of the surface high shifts off the mid atlantic coast.

This will result in a southerly return flow across the region
helping boost temperatures back to near seasonable levels after a
cold and blustery Thursday. A low pressure system will be on the
approach with some warm air advection showers are expected Friday
night. More widespread chances for showers are expected Saturday as
the system's strong cold front moves across the region and a
deepening upper level trough approaches as multiple short waves dive
out of central canada into the great lakes region. The best chances
for showers is expected during the day Saturday especially to the
northwest of the capital district and across the higher terrain of
southern vermont. Highs Friday and Saturday are expected to range
from the mid 40s to mid 50s.

With the passage of this cold front a much colder airmass will be be
ushered back into the region. Highs both Sunday and Monday are only
expected to be in the mid 30s to upper 40s; 10 to 15 degrees below
normal. Will have chances for showers, rain and snow, Saturday night
and Sunday especially across the higher terrain as the region with
lesser but continuing chances Sunday night and Monday as the region
is under cyclonic flow as short waves continue to move out of
central canada reinforcing the trough over the region.

Aviation 18z Tuesday through Sunday
Expectations are forVFR conditions to prevail til 18z Wed with
gusty westerly winds the remainder of this afternoon, diminish
this evening, and increase again on Wednesday.

Lake clouds from i90 northward will continue to lift north with
additional breaks in the clouds expected. A period of clear
skies south of i90 before high and mid level clouds increase in
advance of next cold front. This front may bring some showers,
but confidence is mainly for the terrain as we will leave out of
the tafs at this time.

Outlook...

Wednesday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Thursday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Thursday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Friday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Friday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra.

Saturday: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra.

Saturday night: low operational impact. Slight chance of shra.

Sunday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shra.

Fire weather
Behind a departing cold front, it will be drier today with a
partly sunny sky and breezy conditions. Rh values will fall to
50 to 65 percent this afternoon with west winds of 10 to 15 mph.

Rh values will be as low as 35 to 55 percent on Wednesday. There
could be a passing rain shower, but amounts will be fairly
light. Southwest winds around 10 mph will become westerly at 10
to 25 mph by late in the day.

Hydrology
No hydrologic issues are anticipated through the rest of the
week.

Behind a departing cold front, dry weather is expected today.

Another cold front will pass through on Wednesday, but this
front will be fairly moisture starved and won't produce much rain
showers. Behind this system, some lake effect rain or snow
showers will impact the western adirondacks, mohawk valley,
schoharie valley and eastern catskills, but precip amounts will
be very light.

Dry weather is then expected for the rest of the week.

River and stream levels will generally hold steady through this
period.
