Synopsis
A cold front will approach the region today with lake
effect snow showers and flurries mainly north and west of the
capital region. The cold front will move south of the region
tonight with high pressure briefly building in with diminishing lake
effect activity. Mainly light snow will begin to overspread the
region Sunday afternoon into the night time period, as a disturbance
passing south of the region will be moving along the old frontal
boundary, as temperatures for mid november will continue below
normal.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Clouds still holding on as moisture at the boundary layer is
streaming off the great lakes and a few rain snow showers are
extending east into the southern adirondacks, even a few
sprinkles into the lake george area and northern taconics. Just
a few minor adjustments to temperatures,cloud cover and
precipitation chances through this afternoon. Highs in the 40s
but some 30s higher terrain and light winds.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Monday
Tonight... The cold front has limited low-level moisture with as
it passes south and east across the forecast area. Any
organized lake effect activity that gets going will get
disrupted, as the low-level flow quickly veers to the
northwest. Inversion heights continue to lower. Highest pops
will be confined to the southern mohawk valley and schoharie
valley, where a few tenths to an inch or so could accumulate.

We kept a slight to low chance of snow showers mainly west of
the hudson river valley with the veering flow. A few upslope
snow showers off the southern greens are possible early on
during the evening. High pressure quickly builds in with a
partial clearing possible north of the capital region. In the
cold advection h850 temps fall to -9c to -12c from aly north and
west, and -5c to -8c south and east. If the winds decouple with
the clearing skies, lows could fall into the teens over the
southern adirondacks and the southern greens with 20s over the
rest of the region.

Sunday... A quiet start, but clouds will begin to thicken and
increase from the south and west, as low pressure will moving
towards the oh valley and moving along the old washed out cold
front south of the region. High pressure will shift east to
northeast of the region. Thermal advection begins with moisture
over running the old frontal boundary with light snow breaking
out across the catskills, north and east to potentially the
capital region, taconics, and mid hudson valley into southwest
new england. Some light rain may mix in briefly in the mid
hudson valley. There will be a lot of dry air in place which may
limit the northward extent initially, but a better coverage of
light snow is expected for the overnight period, as the
isentropic lift increases on the 285-290k surfaces. Highs on
Sunday will be about 10-15 degrees below normal with lower to
mid 30s in the valley areas, except the mid-hudson valley where
a few upper 30s are possible. Mid 20s to lower 30s will be
common over the mountains.

Sunday night... Fairly good agreement between the 00z
nam gfs ECMWF cmc and many ensembles that the best synoptic
forcing with the isentropic lift north of the wave and ahead of
the warm front will be during this time frame. The northward
extent may be a sharp cut-off over the northern zones. A couple
of inches of snow is possible especially over the eastern
catskills, taconics, and berkshires. Actually, we could get 1-3"
from late Sunday afternoon into Monday morning in these
locations. We have an inch or so in the valleys. Some light snow
will likely continue through the Monday morning commute. This
looks like a widespread light snow event with total qpf
generally under a quarter inch. Lows due to wet bulbing will be
in the mid 20s to lower 30s.

Monday... The light snow should end in the morning, as the sfc
wave pulls to the north and east. Some lingering light rain snow
showers or flurries may linger in the afternoon in the southwest
flow aloft as weak impulses continue to move through. Temps will
still run on the cold side with widespread 30s to lower 40s and
more clouds than sunshine. We will have to monitor another weak
wave moving along the boundary near southern ny, southern new
england and pa heading into Monday night into tue.

Long term Monday night through Friday
At upper levels, a broad trough will be in place across the
northeastern CONUS while ridging dominates the weather out west.

Locally, the broad trough will lead to below normal temperatures and
some chances for snow showers throughout the work week as upper
level impulses cold fronts pass through.

To start the period Monday night into Tuesday, an upper level
shortwave will pass through the region, along with a surface cold
front. This will result in the chance for snow showers across the
region, with less than half of an inch accumulation expected.

High pressure briefly builds in Tuesday night, with dry but chilly
conditions anticipated. Temperatures Tuesday night will dip into the
single digits in the dacks, with the mid teens elsewhere.

A stronger upper level system, and reinforcing shot of cold air will
approach and clip the region Wednesday into Thursday. This will
bring the chance for additional snow showers with continued cold
temperatures. The latest GEFS shows the 850mb temps are 1 to 2 std.

Dev. Below normal. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will be in the mid
20s to mid 30s, which is still well below the normal highs in the
upper 40s.

Dry weather is expected to end the work week as high pressure builds
into the region once again. This may allow for slight modification
of temps into the low 30s to near 40 degrees for highs.

Aviation 18z Saturday through Thursday
Bkn-ovc skies across the terminals with a westerly flow regime.

Moisture trapped beneath a developing inversion, so CIGS will
persist into the evening, mainly inVFR range. Some MVFR cigs
will occur at kpsf through the afternoon hours. Lower level
cigs will gradually erode this evening, with valley sites
kpou kalb kgfl scouring out first then eventually kpsf as high
pressure builds in.

High and mid level clouds will increase towards Sunday morning
ahead of a weak disturbance approaching from the south and west.

Conditions will remainVFR through 18z Sunday.

Winds the rest of today will be west-northwest around 10-12 kt,
with some gusts up to 20 kt at kalb and kpsf. Winds tonight will
gradually become light and variable.

Outlook...

Sunday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of sn.

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

Monday night: low operational impact. Slight chance of shsn.

Tuesday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shsn.

Tuesday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Wednesday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shsn.

Fire weather
Most of eastern new york and western new england is entirely snow
covered from the snowstorm yesterday. Colder than normal
temperatures will continue through the weekend. Lake effect snow
showers will persist north and west of the capital region
today. A widespread light snowfall will move in Sunday afternoon
into Monday.

Hydrology
Flows will continue to lower in the colder than normal
temperatures and mainly dry weather today, except for lake
effect snow showers over the western adirondacks into the
western mohawk valley. A few snow showers will continue over the
southern greens.

A disturbance moving along a front south of the region will
bring some light snowfall amounting to light accumulations of a
few inches or less late Sunday afternoon through Monday. Another
disturbance and a cold front will bring chances of snow showers
on Tuesday and Wednesday with light qpf.

Colder than normal temperature persist into the thanksgiving
holiday with flows continuing to recede.

and forecast river stages and lake elevations, please visit the
