Synopsis
Unseasonably cool temperatures with showers and isolated
thunderstorms will continue through today. The upper level
disturbances responsible for the cool and unsettled weather will
move east Wednesday with high pressure bringing dry weather. Another
storm system will track into the great lakes on Thursday with a warm
front bringing more showers and thunderstorms along with a return to
uncomfortable humidity levels.

Near term through tonight
The main feature of interest this morning is a sharp mid-level
shortwave trough pivoting across lake erie. This continues to drive
a few broken waves of showers with isolated thunderstorms showing up
on radar at 4am over much of western ny. Not much going on with
mainly clear skies still in place for much of central ny.

Have backed off from previous aggressive forecast for an organized
consolidated band of lake effect showers in favor of synoptic scale
forced convection. There still has yet to be any sign of lake effect
organization at 4am with current satellite radar observations
favoring more widespread convection shifting across western then
central new york through today. Environmental wind shear and strong
synoptic scale ascent must be playing a part in preventing the
organized lake effect from developing. Outside of these waves of
convection, it will be partly to mostly cloudy and generally
rainfree. Temperatures will bottom out between the low-mid 50s on
the lake plains to the mid and upper 40s across the southern tier
and for sites est of the tug hill.

The current widespread showers and isolated storms across western ny
should shift north and east into central ny through the morning as
the mid-level shortwave pivots over the eastern great lakes. In the
wake of the disturbance enough lingering cool air aloft will support
more scattered diurnal showers and isolated thunderstorms through
the afternoon. The lake shadow which has kept much of the buffalo
metro area shielded from convection in previous days looks less
likely of setting up today due to strong synoptic scale lift so have
broadbrush chance pops in the wave for the shortwave axis. 850mb
temps around +4c will once again support a risk for small hail.

Temperatures this afternoon will only make it into the 60s with the
pool of cold air aloft.

Tonight, subsidence and surface high pressure in the wake of the mid-
level shortwave will bring any lingering diurnal convection to
dissipate during the evening hours with only a chance of some lake
enhanced showers off lake ontario tapering off toward Wednesday
morning. It will be another cool night with lows generally dropping
into the low 50s and interior valleys down into the upper 40s.

Short term Wednesday through Friday night
Wednesday the axis of the cool upper level trough will now be over
new england. There will remain chances for a few showers east of
lake ontario for two reasons. The first is early in the morning,
cool +5 to +6c air will linger over lake ontario, and with a
westerly convergent wind a few lake effect rain showers may be
directed towards the tug hill region. Any activity will quickly
diminish with daytime mixing. The linger low level lake moisture
combined with the western periphery of the long wave trough may
yield the second reason for showers... This as diurnal activity over
the interior north country.

Otherwise Wednesday shall be dry as surface high pressure... Centered
over the virginias... Passes across the region. Humidity levels will
remain nice, with dewpoints only rising back into the lower 50s.

Wednesday night this surface high will slip to the east. A deep
southerly flow behind this surface high will bring moisture
northward across the mississippi valley and up through the ohio
valley. To the west of this moisture flux, an upper level shortwave
rippling through a quasi zonal flow will develop a surface low over
the western great lakes. The developing nocturnal jet within this
southerly flow Wednesday night will increase isentropic lift, such
that the leading edge of the next rain event may reach the niagara
frontier and the saint lawrence valley before daybreak on Thursday.

As a warm front associated with the upstream surface low lifts
northward across the CWA Thursday widespread rain showers will pass
across the region. There will be a fair amount of instability
developing Thursday with SBCAPE values reaching 500 to 1000 j kg.

With both LI and si values falling below zero embedded thunderstorms
within the rain associated with the warm front is possible, with
this threat for thunder remaining through the night as the
weakening surface low passes to our north.

The weakening surface low will leave a weak frontal boundary across
the region on Friday. While a shortwave ridge will pass across the
region aloft, the lingering frontal boundary within a moisture rich
atmosphere may allow for a few showers and thunderstorms to blossom
through the afternoon. Expect much of the time Friday to remain dry,
but with much more humidity than recent days as dewpoints increase
into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Showers and thunderstorm chances
will remain Friday night, which will also be quite warm with
overnight lows ranging from the mid 60s to around 70.

Long term Saturday through Monday
On Saturday the next system will move into the great lakes region
and will lift a weak frontal boundary back to north, to be followed
by a cold front later in the day. A very moist airmass (pwats
nearing 2 inches) and dewpoints around 70f supporting sb CAPE values
reaching 1000 to 1500 j kg will generate showers and thunderstorms
throughout the day.

Saturday night and Sunday... Finally the last shortwave associated
with the long wave trough over the east will bottom out over the
great lakes region. Expect a continued threat for showers, with
some lake shadows east of the lakes for Sunday.

Sunday night and Monday... This period should be dry with weak high
pressure moving overhead. This isn't a guarantee this far out,
but if the timing of the current pattern holds, the natural
progression should be subsidence behind the Sunday system, with
the exception of isolated summer convection on lake breeze
convergent regions by Monday afternoon.

Daily temperatures won't stray too far off normals for this time of
year, with highs in the mid 70s to near 80 and lows mostly in the
60s. Humidity levels will vary, with some nights possibly
warranting a c while in the warm sector, but at this time don't see
any extreme sultry days or nights for late into the week weekend.

Aviation 09z Tuesday through Saturday
OverallVFR conditions are expected to prevail through today but not
without some convection to contend with. An swath of widespread
showers with threat for an isolated storm is moving across wny this
morning ahead of a mid-level disturbance. This region of showers
will pivot north and east across lake ontario and north-central ny
through the morning. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
will then be the focus this afternoon as daytime heating works with
the core cool air aloft. While short lived MVFR ifr conditons will
be possible with any heavy shower or storm,VFR conditons will
prevail.

High pressure will build over the region tonight with any lingering
showers during the evening tapering off withVFR and some clearing
developing.

Outlook...

Wednesday... MainlyVFR.

Thursday through Saturday...VFR MVFR with a chance of showers
and thunderstorms.

Marine
The main concern this morning is with a few waves of showers and
isolated thunderstorms that are tracking across the east end of lake
erie and over lake ontario ahead of a mid-level disturbance. These
could bring some gusty winds small hail and possibly waterspouts.

A persistent southwest graident will once again support gusty winds
as high as 25 knots on lake erie today. A small craft advisory
remains in place through this evening.

Lighter winds will promote sub-advisory wave action on the lakes
from tonight and Wednesday. Winds and waves will again increase
Thursday ahead of the next frontal system pushing toward the eastern
great lakes.

Buf watches warnings advisories
Ny... Beach hazards statement through this evening for nyz019-085.

Marine... Small craft advisory until midnight edt tonight for lez040-041.
