A persistent storm system will bring warmer temperatures and
scattered storms to the region this weekend. The unsettled
weather will continue through the middle of next week.

Near term through Sunday
A short wave will pass through ny today. With unstable air in
place and bulk shear values around 30 knots, it is likely
another round of scattered thunderstorms will develop during the
afternoon and continue into the evening. A few thunderstorms
will produce heavy downpours and strong wind gusts. A marginal
risk for severe thunderstorms exists into the evening hours.

Precipitation will taper off overnight. On Sunday, a similar
weather setup will be in place with a weak wave enhancing
thunderstorm potential in a modestly unstable environment.

Temperatures will rise to between 80 and 85 Saturday and to
between 83 and 87 on Sunday.

Short term Sunday night through Monday night
355 am update...

the combination of heat and humidity will be the main concern
in the short term period, which appears to reach its zenith on
Monday. Scattered afternoon-evening thunderstorms are also
expected to continue.

Continued 500mb height rises in west-southwest to zonal flow
will occur Sunday night into Monday. That being said, atmosphere
still does not become thermally capped, with heat dome ridge
positioned well to our south. We will remain in the belt of
westerlies to the north of the ridge, complete with continued
shortwaves and thus yet another period with diurnally-driven
scattered convection. Deep shear will be enough to again pose a
threat for a few cells to contain strong gusts Monday, and the
instability offered by the combination of heat and humidity
could also lead to locally heavy downpours. Precipitable water
values of the atmospheric column get to around 1.5-1.8 inches.

Gfs-nam-canadian models time a shortwave passage with afternoon
heating Monday, however, the latest ECMWF is earlier. This
presents at least a little uncertainty for exactly how warm it
will get, since an earlier wave arrival may hold back heating
slightly. Overall odds favor Monday being the peak of the coming
warm spell, with high temperatures of upper 80s-lower 90s and
dewpoints of upper 60s-lower 70s. If this comes to fruition,
heat advisories could eventually be needed since the heat index
would get into the mid to upper 90s at lower elevations. Lows
both Sunday night and Monday night, in the muggy environment,
will only dip to mid to upper 60s.

Long term Tuesday through Friday
4 am update...

warmth and humidity are still expected Tuesday-Wednesday, with
continued scattered showers and thunderstorms. Models still
depict a cold frontal passage sometime Wednesday afternoon-
evening which will especially pose a likelihood for more
organized convection, followed by drier and cooler conditions
for the remainder of the week.

Previous discussion...

Tuesday will be similar to Sunday and Monday with diurnal
showers and storms and hot humid conditions. Deep upper
low trough will dig across ontario and the axis should be
centered over the NE u.S by Wednesday night with an associated
surface cold front pushing through. Showers and storms are
expected with the front Wednesday into Thursday morning... But
much drier and cooler conditions should prevail by Thursday
night into Friday as strong surface high pressure builds in.

Temperatures will still remain near normal and very
pleasant... Into the upper 70s and lower 80s... Behind the front.

Aviation 12z Saturday through Wednesday
Patchy fog will burn off between 1230z and 1330z. In the
meantime, expect ifr conditions at kelm with MVFR likely at
kbgm, kith, kavp, and ksyr.

Vfr conditions and light winds are forecast thereafter.

A few showers and thunderstorms, some with heavy downpours, will
form Saturday afternoon. The terminal forecasts will be updated
should a storm encroach on one of our terminals.


Saturday night... MVFR toVFR conditions with scattered showers
and TS possible.

Sunday to Wednesday... Restrictions possible in showers and

Bgm watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Ny... None.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 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.
