High pressure will bring seasonable temperatures and
comfortable humidity levels through today. Then, warmer and more
humid conditions return overnight into Friday, along with the
likelihood for showers and thunderstorms, some of which may
contain locally heavy rainfall. Chances for showers and a few
thunderstorms will continue Friday night as a cold front moves
through the region. Mainly drier weather expected for Saturday,
yet a chance of showers will linger south of albany along that
cold front.

Near term through Friday
As of 130 pm edt... Upstream convective trends are diminishing
as activity tracks eastward into a more dry and stable
environment. The deeper convective elements were along the warm
front boundary and enhanced instability (sbcapes over 2k) as
these cells were turning more to the right of the mean flow
where dewpoints were well into the 60s and lower 70s and those
higher instability profiles. Through the remainder of this
afternoon and evening, high and mid level clouds will continue
to increase and thicken as we should achieve highs into the 80s
for valley locations and 70s elsewhere.

Tonight, impressive theta-e and warm advection will overspread
the region. While best upper support will be well to the north
and west of the region, increasing low level jet and moisture
should suffice to keep the chance pops. Terrain into the dacks
with enhanced upslope should allow for likely pops for these
areas. As pwats climb well above 1.75" overnight, some of these
convective elements may produce brief periods of rainfall.

Friday could be an active day as combination of high moisture
content, approaching pre-frontal and main frontal zones and
positive tilted trough could allow for some training cells to
evolve. Question is overall instability and latest model trends
are less with the qpf. Yet if we are able to see breaks in the
overcast then greater instability can be realized hence the
marginal risk continued by spc. The main threat will be from
heavy rainfall as pwats are at or above 2" but through the day
not widespread enough for headlines at this time. We will
continue to watch and collaborate along with future upstream
trends and guidance.

Short term Friday night through Saturday night
Friday still shaping up to be an active day in terms of shower
and thunderstorm activity, but the potential for strong to
severe storms seems more muddled at this time. Latest guidance
indicating we may not actually get into a true warm sector
during the day Friday, as there will be plenty of clouds around
associated with moisture streaming northeast from the remnants
of cindy, which will be moving into the tennessee valley. The
extra clouds may limit instability, despite increasing southerly
flow in the low levels.

A pre-frontal trough still appears to be the main trigger for
showers and thunderstorms to develop, but locally heavy rainfall
may end up being more of a threat than severe storms. A surge
of anomalously high pwats of +2 to +3 stdev will move in in
Friday well ahead of the remnants of cindy. Forecast sounding
profiles indicating tall skinny CAPE along with rising warm
cloud depths to around 11-12 kft. Some wet downbursts cannot be
ruled out given sufficient instability, with generally around
500-1500 j kg of SBCAPE expected, although the models are not in
good agreement. The storm prediction center has updated their
outlook to mention a marginal risk for severe storms in our
area, which given the latest guidance seems very reasonable.

Will mention the chance for some strong gusty winds in the hwo,
but will also focus on locally heavy rain and urban poor
drainage flooding with potential isolated flash flooding.

Showers and thunderstorms will linger well into Friday night,
as there will continue to be sufficient deep moisture and some
instability ahead of the main cold front that will likely not
clear the entire area by Saturday morning. Any conditional
severe threat should diminish during the evening, but the
locally heavy rainfall potential will continue until the cold
front passes through. It will be mild and muggy much of the
night, although areas north and west of albany will start to
cool and dry out towards sunrise Saturday behind the cold front.

Saturday looks to be mainly dry across much of the region,
although will need to hold on to chance pops for areas south of
albany due to some moisture from the remnants of cindy moving
through. Models differ with the QPF associated with cindy,
although either way it should be moving rather quickly by
Saturday as it will get caught up in the W SW zonal flow aloft.

Any rainfall across southern areas should end by early
afternoon. Elsewhere just an isolated shower or two will be
possible as an upper level disturbance moves through.

Temperatures will be close to normal, with humidity levels
dropping through the day. Dry and cooler conditions expected
Saturday night with surface ridging across the ohio valley into
the northeast, although a stray shower will be possible north
and west of albany.

Long term Sunday through Thursday
Guidance is in general agreement there will be a longwave
trough over the region though the period with the trough
deepening as short waves move though the flow. What remains
uncertain is the timing and amplitude of the individual short
waves which impacts the timing of boundaries across the region.

Have favored a blended model approach for the forecast. Overall,
the better chances for convection will be in the afternoon into
the evening with the heating of the day especially Monday and
Tuesday with falling heights across the region.

As for temperatures, slightly below normal by around 5 degrees
or so with highs generally from the mid 60s to near 80 degrees
and lows in upper 40s to upper 50s across the local area.

Aviation 18z Thursday through Tuesday
Vfr conditions to prevail through the afternoon hours as
departing surface ridge slides off the coast. Increasing high
and mid level moisture and the threat of some showers arrive
toward sunset. MVFR conditions will increase overnight with the
threat for more showers and thunderstorms as warm front
approaches. At this time, vicinity and prob30s will be utilized
with amendments being utilized once trends evolve.

These trends continue into Friday morning as well with deep warm
and moist air in place.

South to southwest winds 10kts or less through the remainder of
this afternoon and into tonight. Magnitudes with respect to
gusts increase Friday up to 20kts.


Thursday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Friday: high operational impact. Breezy likely shra... Tsra.

Friday night: high operational impact. Likely shra... Tsra.

Saturday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shra.

Saturday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Sunday: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra.

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

Monday: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra... Tsra.

Fire weather
High pressure will bring seasonable temperatures and
comfortable humidity levels through today. Then, warmer and more
humid conditions return for Friday, along with the likelihood
for showers and thunderstorms, some of which may contain locally
heavy rainfall. Chances for showers and a few thunderstorms
will continue Friday night as a cold front moves into the
region. Mainly drier weather expected for Saturday, but a chance
of showers will linger south of albany as the cold front pushes

Minimum relative humidity values today are expected to be
around 40 to 50 percent, increasing to between 90 and 100
percent tonight. Minimum rh values on Friday will be around 55
to 70 percent.

Winds today will be westerly around 5 to 10 mph, shifting to
the south tonight. Winds on Friday will remain southerly and
increase to around 10 to 15 mph, with gusts near 25 mph.

Dry conditions expected through today for much of the area. A
few showers will be possible well west of albany late in the

More widespread showers and thunderstorms will start to move in
tonight, and especially on Friday as a frontal system gradually
moves across the area. It will become more humid, so there is
the potential for locally heavy rainfall Friday into Friday
evening. Some urban poor drainage flooding and isolated flash
flooding will be possible with thunderstorms. Basin average
rainfall forecast to be around a half to three quarters of an
inch with locally higher amounts where persistent thunderstorms

Mainly dry weather then expected through the first half of the
weekend with just a few showers around, but chances for showers
and a few thunderstorms will increase from Sunday into Monday.
