Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Binghamton NY 334 PM EDT Sun Aug 9 2020
SYNOPSIS. Warmer and more humid weather returns to the region Monday through Thursday. The unstable air mass will bring mainly afternoon and evening scattered showers and thunderstorms.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. 320 pm update .
For the remainder of today, a weak short wave crosses across Northern NY this evening and could see a few showers, most likely in Northern Oneida County. The southern half of the forecast area will likely see valley fog develop once again through the early morning hours on Monday, but there is some uncertainty on how widespread fog will become. As mentioned earlier, that weak short wave will bring an increase in clouds and depending on how far south we see the clouds push will determine how much fog we will see. Otherwise, fog will dissipate tomorrow morning to clearing skies and warm/humid conditions. High pressure that has provided us with the decent weekend shift eastward tomorrow and allows warm sw flow to overtake the area. Dew points should climb into the upper 60s to possibly low 70s by tomorrow afternoon and heat indices will likely climb into the mid 90s, and possibly upper 90s in urban areas. Areas of central NY may need a Heat Advisory tomorrow afternoon, but there is also a threat for some isolated thunderstorms which may help reduce the heat in some areas. After collaborating with neighboring offices, have decided to hold off on issuing an advisory at this time, due to 95+ indices appear they will be isolated and with that threat for storms confidence is low at this time that advisory criteria will be met.
Surface CAPE values above 1000 J/kg and steep low level lapse rates above 8C/km around the time of peak heating should produce a few pulse thunderstorms. PWATs also climb to 1.75" and any thunderstorms that do develop will be slow moving as upper level flow is weak, so will have to watch out for localized flash flooding, as rainfall rates should be quite intense. Good news is that thunderstorms should diminish with the loss of heating tomorrow evening. Temperatures will stay warm overnight with lows only in the upper 60s to low 70s by Tuesday morning.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. 300 pm Update .
Tuesday is looking like a hot day across central NY and NE PA. Highs are expected to get into the upper 80s and low 90s with dew points in the upper 60s with a few pockets near bodies of water to get into the low 70s. Heat indexes will be in the low 90s with urban areas nearing the mid 90. Afternoon clouds may keep temperatures a little cooler across the Finger Lakes region, depending on how fast a cold front approaches the area.
This front has continued to slow down as it begins to stall. The front is not expected to reach the region until late Tuesday afternoon, and with the loss of daytime heating, there will not be much instability to get widespread showers and thunderstorms.
With the slow movement of the front, showers and thunderstorms are looking more likely Wednesday afternoon as instability builds with daytime heating. As the front drifts south into central PA, it stalls with NE PA keeping chances of precipitation through Wednesday night.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. 300 pm Update . The stalling frontal boundary is going to be hanging around for a while. South of the front will have hot and humid with greater instability leading to consistent showers and thunderstorms. North of the front is warm and stable so as the front meanders north and south, it will have impacts on our forecast.
Some guidance is having a surface low form in the midwest towards late week helping push the front back north into Central NY with increased clouds and instability. PoPs have been increased Friday into Saturday but not too much since the formation of that surface low is very uncertain.
Previous Discussion . The above mentioned frontal boundary very slowly drifts southward during during the mid-late week, but remains nearly stationary. With this boundary around, diurnally- driven showers and thunderstorms are possible each day, especially across the southern half of the area (Twin Tiers into Northeast PA). That being said, no particular day looks to be a washout at this time since coverage will be isolated to scattered and mainly concentrated during the afternoon.
Temperatures remain above normal during much of the long term period, with highs mainly in the 80s. By next weekend, a slightly cooler airmass moves in, likely bringing temperatures back closer to normal for this time of the year.
AVIATION /19Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. High pressure with VFR conditions expected for the remainder of today and into this evening. A weak disturbance passes to our north tonight and may clip RME with some MVFR ceilings and possibly a light rain shower as well. There is also a chance of more valley fog again tonight with restrictions possible at ELM.
Monday . Mainly VFR with a small chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm Monday afternoon.
Tuesday through Friday . Chances for restrictions in showers and thunderstorms especially during the afternoon hours.
BGM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. NY . None.
