656 am edt Thu apr 26 2018

An upper level low pressure system will move slowly east across
the area today and enhance the potential for more showers...

especially over northern new york and the northern half of
vermont. The low moves east of the region tonight and dry
weather moves in. The dry air will be short lived as a low
pressure system moves into the region from the southwest on
Friday and spreads more showers back into the region...

especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Unsettled
weather and cooler temperatures are expected for the weekend.

Near term through Friday
As of 656 am edt Thursday... Overall forecast in good shape.

Plenty of low level moisture around for areas of fog which
forecast has covered well. In addition... Upper circulation
moving eastward and is currently centered around watertown new
york. Forcing ahead of this feature is causing a band of
precipitation across parts of eastern new york and western
vermont. Should see areal coverage of precipitation increase
over the area as the morning wears on and going forecast has
this covered well. So no big changes needed at this time.

Previous discussion...

plenty of low level moisture continues to linger over the area
early this morning. This has led to the development of
fog... Which has been producing reduced visibilities at times.

Have added this to the forecast through about mid-morning. This
is when we should start to see some mixing with increasing west
to southwest winds and increasing precipitation chances as upper
low moves slowly east across the area. Based on the track of
the low northern new york and the northern half of vermont will
have the best chance for precipitation... With an additional
quarter to half inch of rain expected. This should help promote
additional rises on area waterways with some higher level
snowmelt taking place. High temperatures will range from the
upper 40s to the mid 50s.

Upper low is east of the area tonight and with more favorable
dynamic support east of the region as well... Precipitation will
quickly come to an end by midnight with lows expected in the mid
30s to lower 40s. The dry weather will not last long... Friday
morning will be dry... But a shortwave trough moving northeast
toward the region will bring rain back into the area Friday
afternoon... Especially across vermont. Highs will be in the
upper 50s to lower 60s.

Short term Friday night through Saturday
As of 434 am edt Thursday... Friday night and Saturday an upper
level trough will remain anchored to our west, and upper level
shortwaves passing through the southwesterly flow will bring
several chances for showers to the area. Highest chance for
showers will be right at the start of the short term, 00z
Saturday, with a potent shortwave passing along our eastern cwa
border. A low pressure system will also track along the southern
new england coast while another low approaches from the
northwest. Lots of moisture and dynamics in place, therefore
have gone with categorical rain showers for eastern vermont
Friday night. There will be a brief break in the precipitation
Saturday morning as shortwave exits to our northeast, and the
northern stream low pressure system gets a bit hung up to our
northwest. Another vort MAX will enter western new york area
later in the day on Saturday, and will be the next focus for
precipitation going into Saturday night.

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday
As of 434 am edt Thursday... Active weather pattern continues
headed into the long term portion of the forecast. Upper level
trough and low will slowly creep eastward and upper level low
will be centered over northern new york by early Sunday morning.

As pieces of upper level energy rotate around base of upper
level trough our region will experience scattered light rain
showers. These features are difficult to time this far out, but
details will become more clear as we get closer to the weekend.

Currently models are indicating that the upper level low in the
base of the trough will finally push east of our region Sunday
night into Monday. Monday should be the end of the active
weather period, with surface and upper level ridging expected
from Monday night through early Thursday.

Aviation 12z Thursday through Monday
Through 06z Friday... Precipitation has lifted northeast of the
area early this morning... But deep moisture remains over the
area. This is resulting in a wide variety of conditions with
general MVFR ceilings and visibilities expected through about
14z... But there will be frequent periods before 14z where ifr
and lifr conditions are expected. Eventually after 14z an upper
level low pressure system will move in from the west and mixing
will take place as southwest winds develop at speeds around 10
knots. This will help lift ceilings and visibilities into the
vfr and MVFR categories. At the same time showers will be
numerous across the area through about 00z before the upper
level low pressure system moves east and precipitation comes to
an end withVFR visibilities for the remainder of the period.

Ceilings after 00z should also be in theVFR category.


Friday:VFR. Chance shra.

Friday night: MVFR ifr conditions possible. Chance shra.

Saturday: mainlyVFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance shra.

Saturday night: mainlyVFR, with local ifr possible. Chance shra,
chance shsn.

Sunday: mainly MVFR, with areasVFR possible. Chance shra.

Sunday night: mainly MVFR, with local ifr possible. Slight chance
shra, slight chance shsn.

Monday: mainly MVFR, with areasVFR possible. No sig wx.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
