400 pm edt Wed apr 25 2018

Some additional rain showers are expected into tonight
as a cold front moves across the region. An upper level disturbance
may continue to allow for a few showers over the high terrain on
Thursday, otherwise, it will remain mostly cloudy and cool. After
dry weather on Thursday night, more rainfall is expected on Friday
with continued cool conditions.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
As of 400 pm edt... Two storm systems are in the process of
impacting the region. First, low pressure is located south of
the area over the mid-atlantic states. With a southerly flow
aloft ahead of this approaching storm system, steady rainfall is
ongoing across the adirondack region, with some light showers
for the remainder of the area.

As the low pressure area lifts northeast towards new england,
the best forcing with this storm system will shift away from the
area and precip will start to become more spotty by later this
evening. However, an additional band of rain showers will be
moving towards the area from the west for later tonight, as a
cold front approaches from the great lakes.

Temperatures have been stuck in the 50s today due to the clouds
and rainfall, but will be dropping into the 40s for tonight,
especially by late tonight, as the cold front crosses the area
from west to east. Before the front crosses, some areas of fog
will be possible as well due to moist low levels, especially
across the higher elevations.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through Friday night
Although the main low pressure area will be northeast of the
area and the cold front will be through, some additional rain
showers are possible for Thursday, as the upper level
disturbance slides across the area. The best chance of seeing
additional rainfall on Thursday will be across the adirondacks,
with lower chances elsewhere. Otherwise, it remain mostly cloudy
and cool through Saturday thanks to the chilly temps aloft and
cyclonic flow in place. Highs will reach the mid 40s to mid 50s
for most spots, although a few locations the mid hudson valley
will be near 60 for highs.

Dry weather is expected on Thursday night, as there will be a
brief break between two storm systems. Skies may briefly clear
out and temps will fall into the mid 30s to mid 40s.

The next storm system will arrive on Friday morning, as another
southern stream low pressure area lifts up the coast for Friday.

A period of rainfall looks to occur for during the day on
Friday, with the steadiest and heaviest rainfall (up to a half
inch) across western new england. With the clouds showers, temps
will generally be in the 50s once again.

A few lingering showers may continue into Friday night, but the
steadiest rainfall should be exiting. Otherwise, it looks to
remain fairly cloudy with temps in the 40s.

Long term Saturday through Wednesday
As we close out this last weekend of april, latest NCEP model suite
and international global guidance supports a cold yet progressive
upper trough behind northeast surface low and digging jet from
central canada. H850 temperatures drop below 0c Saturday night into
Sunday where some snow showers will be possible, especially across
the higher terrain.

As this upper trough and low move northeast overnight Sunday night
into Monday, a large surface ridge and climbing heights aloft is
expected to track from the central plains and ohio valley and off
the southeast coast into early next week. As we change the calendar
to may , so does the temperatures as those h850 values quickly climb
back at and above 10c through Tuesday. While there a couple members
suggesting a back-door cold front (mainly canadian members),
majority of members are drier and warmer (like the operational.

Ecmwf). This will signify a run at 80f for valley locations
beginning Tuesday and into the mid-week period.

Temperatures will start off below normal then quickly moderate to at
or above normal with precipitation near normal.

Aviation 20z Wednesday through Monday
An area of low pressure over the mid atlantic will move up the
coast as a low and its cold front over the east eastern great
lakes region approaches. The lows will consolidated over new
england overnight into Thursday morning. This will keep poor
flying conditions and chances for showers and fog across the
region. Ifr-MVFR conditions will persist this afternoon with
widespread ifr developing for tonight. An improvement to MVFR
withVFR at kpou is expected to develop Thursday morning as a
westerly flow develops and picks up on the backside of the
consolidated low.

Overall winds be light except where the eastern flow is being
enhanced by the local terrain over western new england. Winds
are expected to be light and variable to calm overnight with a
westerly flow developing and increasing on the backside of the
consolidated low Thursday morning. The westerly flow is expected
to become gusty at kalb and kpsf in the morning and by afternoon
at kpou.


Thursday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Friday: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra.

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.

Sunday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Monday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Fire weather
Rainfall on Wednesday has allowed for wet conditions across the
region, with most areas north of the mid-hudson valley and NW ct
have seeing at least a quarter of an inch.

Rh values will remain elevated over the next few days with
several opportunities for additional rainfall. West winds will
be 10 to 20 mph on Thursday and southerly at 5 to 10 mph on

No hydrological problems are expected the next several days.

Some additional rainfall is expected into the overnight with the
passage of a cold front. A few more showers are also possible
on Thursday as an upper level disturbance moves across the area.

Total additional rainfall will mainly be under a third of an

After a period of dry weather on Thursday night, more rainfall
is expected on Friday, with up to a half inch across the
area. Some additional light rain showers are possible on
Saturday and Sunday, but dry weather will then return for early
next week.

This rainfall will lead to some minor rises on rivers and
streams, with a rivers and lakes approaching action stage.

However, no flooding is anticipated at this time, as rainfall
amounts (and mountain snowmelt) looks limited to enough to
prevent any problems at this time.

observed and forecast river stages and lake elevations, please

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.
