354 am est Thu nov 22 2018
High pressure continues to build down from canada today and
will settle over the north country tonight. This system is
bringing well below normal temperatures to the region. Both high
and low temperatures today and tonight will be on the order of
20 to 30 degrees below normal. Other than a few mountain snow
showers dry weather is generally expected... Especially tonight
and Friday with high pressure right over the area. A slow
warming trend will take place on Friday with highs in the 20s.
Warmer and wetter weather is expected for the weekend.
Near term through Friday
As of 350 am est Thursday... Coldest air aloft is moving over
the area early this morning with 850 millibar temperatures
expected to be as low as -25c. Continued cold air advection
today in the northwest flow aloft pattern will result in high
temperatures only in the 8 to 16 degree range... Which is about
20 to 30 degrees below normal for this time of year. The
northwest flow aloft will result in continued clouds in the
mountains and some lingering snow showers... Especially over
vermont due to the upslope flow. Any additional accumulations
will be less than an inch. Gusty northwest winds combined with
the below normal temperatures will keep wind chill values below
zero for a better part of the day today. Coldest values will be
at the higher elevations... Generally above 2000 feet.
The high settles over the area tonight and Friday morning. This
will allow for clear skies and light winds to develop. Coldest
air aloft will be east of the area and some warm air advection
begins to take place. Lows will generally range between 5 above
and 5 below with saranac lake getting down to around 12 below.
A slow warming trend takes place on Friday as the high shifts to
the east and a south to southwest return flow develops. Highs
temperatures will climb into the 20s... Still about 20 degrees
below normal for this time of year. No precipitation is expected
with just some increasing clouds in the afternoon.
Short term Friday night through Saturday
As of 350 am est Thursday... Friday night will be the last
really cold night for the next week. Surface high pressure will
begin to slide east of the area, though upper level ridge will
remain. Single digits in the northeast kingdom, with teens
elsewhere. Then on Saturday surface low will form over delmarva
area, and clouds and moisture increase late in the period.
Saturday will finally feature near normal temperatures with
highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s.
Long term Saturday night through Wednesday
As of 350 am est Thursday... Precipitation will spread into our
area from the southwest on Saturday night, spreading across our
entire forecast area by Sunday morning. Aforementioned surface
low will lift northeastward into southern new england. Minimum
temperatures Saturday night will range from the upper 20s to the
mid 30s, therefore a mix of snow and rain is expected. This low
will pass through the area pretty quickly, with precipitation
ending by about 00z Monday. QPF will range from a couple tenths
of an inch to a half an inch. Will have a quick break in the
action Sunday night, then a much stronger low will lift through
the great lakes region, along with upper level low on Monday.
More widespread precipitation is anticipated for Monday, likely
a mix of rain and snow once again. This pattern remains a bit
stuck over the north country into the middle of next week.|
Aviation 09z Thursday through Monday
Through 06z Friday... MVFRVFR ceilings will exist through
12z... But should transition toVFR between 12z and 18z as cloud
cover gradually decreases in areal coverage. Visibilities will
generally beVFR... But could see brief periods of ifr visibilities
at kslk and kmpv due to snow showers and haze until 12z. Gusty
northwest winds will continue through 00z with gusts in the 15
to 25 knot range. Winds will lower under 10 knots after 00z.
Friday:VFR. No sig wx.
Friday night:VFR. No sig wx.
Saturday:VFR. Slight chance shra.
Saturday night: mainlyVFR, with local ifr possible. Definite
shra, definite shsn.
Sunday: mainly MVFR, with local ifr possible. Chance shra.
Sunday night: mainly MVFR, with localVFR possible. Chance shra,
Monday: mainly MVFR, with localVFR possible. Likely shra.
A lake wind advisory remains in effect today as winds will
continue to be from the northwest at 15 to 25 knots. This will
create 2 to 4 foot waves and rather choppy conditions... Especially
on the east side of the lake. The winds will begin to taper off
tonight and become more southerly on Friday.

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 L-36.com 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.
