area forecast discussion
national weather service binghamton ny
252 pm edt Thu oct 17 2019
Rain continues this afternoon through tonight courtesy of a cold
front tracking into western ny and a deepening coastal low.
Warmer and dry weather will return for the weekend before rain
showers return once again starting Monday night.
Near term through Friday night
1215 pm update...
winds across the finger lakes have topped out higher than
expected, with sustained winds up to 20-25mph and a few gusts up
to 40-45 mph over the past couple of hours. So, winds have been
adjusted upward slightly for this afternoon across the whole
area, but for the finger lakes in particular. Winds are meeting
the criteria for a wind advisory, but given the late hour and
the more isolated nature of the higher wind gusts, will
continue to avoid hoisting a wind advisory.
Otherwise, continued pulling back slightly on pops across our
southernmost forecast area as strong NW flow leads to
increasingly better chances for showers downwind of the lakes -
generally north of a line from watkins glen - ithaca - delhi.
Winds fall back overnight, but showers continue mainly downwind
of lake ontario overnight through Friday morning before high
pressure building in helps to dry things out. Clouds will stick
around during the daytime before skies begin to clear out
As for temperatures, we really haven't been able to budge much
over the past several hours, with highs generally in the
mid upper 40s this afternoon. Still expecting lows in the
low mid 40s, and possibly upper 30s across the higher
elevations of the catskills before temperatures again peak in
the mid upper 40s Friday afternoon.
Short term Saturday through Sunday
230 pm update...
high pressure will move overhead Saturday. After a frosty start,
temperatures MAX out in the mid and upper 50s. This is slightly
below average. As the high and upper level ridge moves east
late Saturday and Saturday night, mid and high clouds come in
from the southwest. This is on the north side of a storm moving
through the mid atlantic states. The trend with this storm is
too push it south keeping any rain out of the area. The euro
still holds on to some light rain Sunday but other models now
dry. With dry low level air Saturday night lows fall back into
the 30s to around 40. Slightly warmer on Sunday with highs
Long term Sunday night through Wednesday
230 pm update...
this period starts with an upper level ridge over the northeast
us. Moisture will be pumped northeast ahead of a deep trough and
cold front over the plains. The trend has been to slow the front
down so now it moves through late Tuesday. Rain should hold off
until Monday night but lingers into Tuesday night. After the
rain during the last 24 hours, will need to watch the rain
amounts for this system. Moisture fetch is good. The upper
level trough lifts northeast through the area Wednesday.
Wednesday into Thursday improving weather.
A temperature roller coaster with temperatures warming ahead of
the front into Tuesday then falling again Wednesday and
Thursday. Low temperatures warm well into the 40s Monday night
then fall back into the 30s Thursday morning. Highs peak Monday
in the low and mid 60s, change little Tuesday, then fall into
the 50s the rest of the week.
Aviation 19z Thursday through Tuesday
145 pm update...
still looking at mainly MVFR and fuel alternate ceilings this
afternoon, through the evening across all terminals. Lingering
showers may cause temporary MVFR visibility restrictions at
times over the next few hours, with ceilings possibly dropping
to ifr across all sites save rme and avp. Otherwise, still
looking at a risk for some low-level wind shear up to 30-45kts
until around 0z.
Lingering showers overnight are not expected to cause any
impacts, but ceilings will continue to drop back mainly to fuel
alternate across all terminals, but ifr ceilings are expected by
10z at ith, bgm and elm. Ceilings improve to fuel alternate and
MVFR after sunrise.
Gusty NW winds are expected the rest of today through Friday.
Wind gusts mainly around 20-30kts this afternoon drop back to
around 16-25kts tonight, then gusts up to 20kts are possible
Friday night through Sunday... MainlyVFR. Morning fog
Monday and Tuesday... Restrictions possible in showers.

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 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.
