Upper level trough will be over the region today, bringing
cooler temperatures, partly cloudy skies and perhaps an
isolated shower in central new york. A cool canadian high builds
just to our north tonight through the weekend. This will keep
our weather dry and cool under partly sunny skies. Expect a
gradual warming trend next week, with chances for showers and
thunderstorms returning by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Near term through Saturday
Scattered rain showers are still skirting the wyoming valley,
poconos and sullivan county ny. Based on upstream radar satellite
trends expect these light showers to continue in this area for
at least the next several hours, only very slowly exiting to the
southeast around or just after daybreak. The rest of the area is
dry under mostly clear skies across central ny for the rest of
the overnight. Areas of fog are already forming in the deeper
valleys in central ny, this will linger until around daybreak as

Upper level trough will remain in place over the region during
the day today. Goes-east WV loop shows a shortwave disturbance
near georgian bay lake huron that will drop south toward our
area later today. An upslope nnw flow and cold pool aloft should
pick up just enough lake moisture to allow for bkn strato
cumulus develop starting late morning and lasting well into the
afternoon across much of cny and the n. Tier of pa. Cannot rule
out an isolated shower near the finger lakes as well, otherwise
it will remain dry today. Further south across the wyoming
valley, poconos and sullivan county ny, it will be a rather
thick layer of high clouds that may linger much of the day.

Overall, today is looking mostly cloudy, with some breaks of sun
at times, both early (north) and late in the day. Northwest
winds increase 6-12 mph during the afternoon, and high
temperatures only reach the upper 60s to mid-70s.

Tonight: surface ridging builds over the area from the north.

Cloud cover should dissipate quickly this evening, leading to
mostly clear skies overnight. Winds become light northerly or
variable. There will likely be fog formation in the typical
river valleys around the area. One thing of note is that a weak
upper level low at 500mb will actually be on top of the area,
but this low has very limited moisture... So at worst there could
be some cloud development. Very cool, with lows 45-52 most

Saturday: previously mentioned weak upper level low remains
over the area, but surface ridging and very dry mid level air
will also be in place; therefore should be dry. Overall, am
expecting another seasonably cool day under partly to mostly
sunny skies. Light north winds continue 5-10 mph and high
temperatures again reach the upper 60s to mid-70s.

Short term Saturday night through Monday
Overall, a dry and seasonably cool airmass will be in place
during this period, with highs in the lower to mid 70s and lows
ranging from the upper 40s to mid 50s, with some mid 40s in the
higher elevations of the catskills. While the likelihood is
that completely dry weather will prevail through Monday, there
remains some uncertainty regarding Sunday's forecast, mainly
across the extreme eastern portions of the forecast area as an
upper level low spins off the southern new england coast. At
this time, it appears that the dry air will likely win out in
our area, and therefore do not have any pops in Sunday's
forecast. Should enough low level moisture from the atlantic
make it to our eastern zones, there would be the possibility of
a shower or two on Sunday.

Long term Monday night through Thursday
The main feature to track during this period will be a slow
moving cold front that will approach the area and eventually
move through the area during the Monday night through Wednesday
night timeframe. Along with this approaching front will be an
increasing chance for showers and some thunderstorms, with the
greatest chance for this being on Wednesday at this time. That
being said, there remains some timing differences of this front
between the various model solutions and therefore this forecast
is subject to change a bit as we get closer.

Temperatures will be on a slight warming trend as well, with
highs likely getting to the upper 70s to lower 80s by mid-week.

The above mentioned front should finally clear the area by
Thursday, resulting in a drying trend. Just a slight chance of
seeing a few additional showers on Thursday with highs generally
in the upper 70s to lower 80 again.

Aviation 08z Friday through Tuesday
2 am update
mainlyVFR expected through the TAF period. Lower endVFR cloud
deck will linger near kavp through daybreak. Mid and high level
cloud deck is close to kelm, which is making for a low confidence
fog forecast here. Continued with the previous forecast
thoughts and do have ifr fog developing here through 12-13z this
morning. However, if the mid high clouds are thick enough and
linger through daybreak only very patchy, light fog may form at
kelm. Updates and amendments will be issued as needed to cover
this complex forecast.

By late morning sct to bkn 3.5-5k ft strato-cumulus everywhere
with high clouds at kavp.

Light and variable winds or northwest through daybreak. Then,
northwest to north winds at 5 to 10 kts late morning and


tonight through Monday...VFR, except late night early morning
fog likely at kelm.

Monday night and Tuesday...VFR expected.

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 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.
