A cold front will continue moving south across pennsylvania
today with a few showers. Behind the front, high pressure will
build into the region for the remainder of the week.
Near term through Tuesday
A cold front will slowly move southward across pa today. Enough lift
will be present for a band of stratus clouds. This band of clouds
will be most persistent across the southern tier hanging around
through the day. We anticipate this lasting longer than what
model guidance indicates as well. Only a few spotty light
showers are expected today along this front due to the limited
amount of moisture. Cloud cover will keep highs from getting out
of the 60's for most of central ny. However, sunnier locations
along the ny thruway and in NE pa should get into the low 70's.
High pressure begins to build into the region tonight. This looks to
be the first of many nights upcoming with clear skies and light
winds. Radiational cooling should allow for a few degrees
cooler than model guidance with many locations getting into the
A sunny day Tuesday thanks to the high pressure system. Went a touch
over model guidance here given the modeled 925mb temperatures
on highs with most locations getting to around 70.
Short term Tuesday night through Thursday
3 am update...
very quiet conditions are anticipated in the short term period.
At the surface, dry high pressure will renew itself, dropping
out of quebec to settle across the entire northeast. Aloft,
amplified ridging initially over the western great lakes will
shift over our region. The end result will be a generally clear
sky with a very stable atmosphere. This will produce wide
diurnal ranges between cool nights and comfortable days.
Highs will edge up slightly as ridging aloft takes over, from
upper 60s-lower 70s Wednesday to mostly 70s Thursday except
highest elevations still in 60s. Strong radiational cooling of
dry air each night will yield lows of primarily 40s. A few our
typically coldest spots Tuesday night could even slip into
upper 30s, such as pockets of delaware and northern oneida
counties. This will also be ideal for typical late season valley
fog development each night-early morning.
Long term Thursday night through Sunday |
3 am update...
there is high confidence for remarkably dry and quiet
conditions to persist, and temperatures will trend warmer.
High pressure at the surface, with amplified warm ridging
aloft, will remain in place right into the weekend. Main trend
of note, is for temperatures to get warmer each day. Highs of
mainly mid to upper 70s Friday, will reach upper 70s-lower 80s
for Saturday-Sunday. Dewpoints are anticipated to still be
comfortably low - mainly 50s - late this week. However, high
pressure will start to shift east Sunday which by then may allow
dewpoints to creep up into the 60s via southwest return flow.
Ridging aloft will also start to skew eastward, exposing us more
to southwest flow and increasing sky cover Sunday. Our next
actual rain chances still appear to wait until just after the
weekend in the latest operational models.
Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Vfr conditions throughout expected at ksyr, krme and kavp
through the TAF period. Some briefVFR showers can not be ruled
out at the sites through the overnight. Winds under 10 knots,
variable through the overnight then northerly on Monday.
For kith, lifr fog has been stubborn through the evening. We
maintain this fog through the overnight but considerable
uncertainty is present keeping the lifr restrictions till
sunrise. A possibility is present that the ceilings lift to ifr
to MVFR from a few passing showers by sunrise. For kbgm and
kelm, ceilings are likely to lower to MVFR by sunrise and slowly
burn off Monday afternoon. Ceilings will also be slow to lift
out of the MVFR range at kith as well on Monday.
Vfr at all sites by Monday evening. Winds continued under 10
Tuesday through Friday...VFR except late night early morning
valley fog probable for at least kelm; possibly others.

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.
