front will approach the region later tonight from the southwest

500 mb ridging passes across the region today in overall
westerly upper level flow. Upper level low moving across the
great lakes to the west is spilling some cirrus over the ridge.

Surface ridge remains in place for today to provide light wind
and dry conditions.

For tonight... Surface ridge shifts east, allowing a warm front
to lift northeast into the region mainly after midnight. Nose of
warm and noticeably more moist air to push into mainly the new
york side of the forecast area. Surface dewpoints in the 50s to
be replaced by 60s dewpoints. Warm air advection at 850
mb... Showers should be likely with the front. Sharp gradient of
showalter index values moves into northern new york after

Saturday night through Tuesday morning. Cold air advection
continues Saturday night behind departing surface cold front
that crossed the area Friday night. Ridge of surface high
pressure centered over ohio river valley will build into our
region and remain through early Tuesday. An upper level trough
will push across our forecast area Saturday night and Sunday.

Looks like good eclipse viewing weather for Monday afternoon.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
