Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Binghamton NY 149 AM EDT Thu Apr 2 2020
SYNOPSIS. A low moving off the coast of North Carolina this evening will stall just east of New England and keep a northerly flow of cool air in the area into Friday, along with a light sprinkle or higher elevation flurry from time to time. High pressure will build in Saturday with dry and seasonable air. A weak cold front may bring a light shower later on Sunday.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. 1230 AM Update .
Skies are staying clear so far tonight, with some adjustments to temperatures over the next few hours as some spots have been able to turn a couple degrees cooler than expected. Otherwise, still expecting some clouds to fill back in across central NY before daybreak, with partly to mostly cloudy skies for the rest of Thursday. With this update, precipitation chances have been removed as a dry airmass will be in place even as a weak wave passes through.
Previous discussion . Different day but the same weather. Upper low over NY and New England this afternoon will drift south and merge with the deepening low off the east coast and generally keep a northerly flow and upper level instability over the area through the near term. More stable air of Lake Ontario continues to push south and much of the Finger Lakes and central Southern Tier are now nearly cloud free while much of the Catskills and NEPA remain locked in the clouds with only a few breaks. As we lose the flow off the lake this evening and we stabilize I expect the lower cloud deck to reform over much of the area.
More of the same for Thursday and Thursday night as the northerly flow continues and a lobe of the upper low swings by. Once again, stable air may drift off the lake making for a sunnier day over the Finger Lakes. Moisture from the stalled coastal low may begin to bring some light rain or mixed showers on Thursday night, especially over the Catskills.
SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. 230 pm update . Nothing to worry about this period. Lingering showers Friday followed by dry mild weather Saturday.
The upper level low will continue to spin offshore southeast of Cape Cod. The models continue to slow its movement so showers are still possible during the entire day Friday. This may have to be extended into the evening but for now moisture drops southeast with the low late Friday. In the morning it might be cold enough for some snow showers over the higher terrain. Low levels are just above freezing so snow amounts will be very little, like a dusting on the grass. With cloudy skies temperatures in the 30s will only rise into the 40s, then fall back to the 30s Friday night. Upped winds Friday with the upper level low closer and high pressure further west over Ohio and Michigan.
Drier air starts moving in from the north Friday night and continues into Saturday. With clearing skies temperatures on Saturday will be above normal in the 50s. With the high nudging in Saturday winds will be light. Saturday night will be partly cloudy and dry with lows back in the 30s.
LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. 230 pm update . No changes. The models continue to back off on the Sunday afternoon showers. Not enough confidence to lower further the slight chance pops.
Previous discussion . Starting off dry for Sunday, but then a shortwave passing through will drag a cold front through the area during the afternoon. This will touch off a chance for some rain showers Sunday afternoon, lingering Sunday night across north-central NY. A brief dry period is possible across most of the area Monday morning, but then another shortwave moving through will touch off additional showers during the afternoon hours. Rain chances will continue through Tuesday, with a shift to southwesterly flow bringing in a warmer, more moist airmass. Otherwise, turning warmer through the extended period, with overnight lows generally in the 30s as highs increase into the 50s and even low 60s.
AVIATION /06Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. VFR continues tonight with clear skies across most terminals. However, by sunrise, a shallow stratocumulus deck is expected to develop with clouds lingering across the area the rest of the day. KAVP should stay VFR. However, MVFR ceilings will be possible across our central NY terminals during the morning as ceilings hover at around 2500 to 3500 ft. Then, ceilings lift to around 3500 to 5000 ft for the afternoon hours. Ceilings start to lower back to MVFR again overnight. Winds will come in from the northwest at 10-15 knots during the day Thursday with gusts to around 20 knots or so before falling back to around 8 to 12 kts overnight.
Thursday night through Friday night . Ceiling restrictions probable in persistent cloud cover; also spotty showers at times for Thursday night through Friday.
Saturday through midday Sunday . Generally VFR.
Late Sunday through Sunday night . Possible showers/restrictions.
Monday . VFR.
