AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Albany NY 1036 AM EST Fri Dec 6 2019

SYNOPSIS. An Alberta Clipper will bring a widespread light snow event during the daytime today with some impacts to the evening commute expected. High pressure returns for the weekend leading to dry and cooler conditions.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 10 AM to 10 PM for Bennington County, Eastern Rensselaer County and Northern Berkshire County .

Updated at 1015 am. Light snow continues to streak eastward along a lower-to-mid level frontal zone stretched across upstate NY. Visbilities on ASOS and meso-net webcams indicate some moderate snow falling in a few places, but intensity is mostly light. Expect many places west of the Hudson Valley to pick up an inch or so by early afternoon, with a dusting in the Capital District by 1 pm. After 1 pm, snow will increase in intensity especially over higher terrain east of the Hudson Valley. Amounts by late afternoon still look to be in the 1 to 2 inch range for the Hudson Valley, with 2 to 5 inches over higher terrain to the east and west. Low-level flow above the boundary layer will be light from the southwest which will favor a little shadowing in the Capital District and some upslope enhancement into the Rensalear plateau and Green Mountains where advisories are in effect.

Meanwhile, over the mid- Hudson Valley temperatures are already into the mid 30s and could get close to 40 before any light precipitation develops. In those areas expect just some very light rain/snow with no significant snow accumulations. Previous discussion is below.

Cloudy across the region and some fingers of light snow and flurries are extending toward the western Mohawk Valley and southern Adirondacks. The area of snow upstream around the Great Lakes and into central NY is very streaky and cellular but is expected to become more organized and become a relatively uniform area of light snow with pockets of moderate snow later this morning.

Snow will spread across the region along and north of the eastern Catskills, Central Taconics and Berkshires. Upper dynamics dropping out of Canada and a strengthening boundary layer southwesterly jet core will briefly enhance frontogenesis, convergence and isentropic lift. There is not much moisture associated with this system but some moisture will be picked up off the Great Lakes. The saturated layer and maximum vertical motion looks to be between the surface and about 600 hPa, which is below the dendritic growth zone. So, snow ratios may not be much different than climo.

There is a general consensus from sources of guidance/ensembles that an inch or two of snow is likely in most areas outside the mid Hudson Valley, NW CT and southern Berkshires where there may be some dustings. Snow will be enhanced around the western Mohawk Valley to south facing areas of the southern Adirondacks, northern Saratoga Region, southern Green Mountains, Rensselaer Plateau and northern Berkshires with 2-4" of snow and locally 5" in the higher peaks of the southern Green Mountains.

Snow ends quickly this afternoon in eastern NY and this evening in western New England. Highs in the lower to mid 30s but some upper 30s mid Hudson Valley and NW CT and 20s higher terrain.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. A period of gusty west to northwest winds and cooling boundary layer temperatures should support some lake effect snow showers into the western Mohawk Valley and southern Adirondacks this evening. Winds will diminish later tonight and lake effect snow shower activity will likely shrink.

Improving sky and tranquil weather Saturday with highs in the upper 20s to lower 30s with some mid 30s southern areas and lower to mid 20s northern areas. Warm advection begins Sunday and strengthens through Sunday night. The next system begins to organize to our west and some increasing clouds are likely through Sunday afternoon. Highs Sunday in the mid 30s to near 40 but around 30 to lower 30s higher terrain.

By Sunday night, low level south to southwest flow increases as does moisture advection, supporting the potential for precipitation to begin in some areas after midnight. Temperatures will fall to near or below freezing in the evening, then temperatures warm between midnight and daybreak Monday. This will result in chances for mixed precipitation depending on how quickly or slowly temperatures warm. So, indicating just some chances for mixed precipitation Sunday night, including freezing rain in northern areas. More details on this will be known as we get closer to Sunday and Monday.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Focus here is on warm and wet period Monday and Tuesday. Models continue to advertise a significant rain event coupled with temperatures running 15 degrees above normal during the day and 15- 20 degrees above normal at night.

High temperatures Monday and Tuesday will range from the mid 40s to low 50s in valley locations, to upper 30s to mid 40s in higher terrain. Some hints in the extended MOS guidance that temperatures could even be a few degree degrees higher than currently forecast.

Models in good agreement that a swath of 2-3 inch rain will occur across the Northeast U.S. during this period. Models are not in good agreement on where the heaviest rain will fall. Canadian and GFS forecast the heaviest rain to fall south and east of the Albany forecast area, although a local maxima is forecast across the southern Adirondacks. (Winds will be predominantly southwest during this event. Local research confirms that heavy rain - relative to the rest of the forecast area - falls in the southern Adirondacks during this regime.) The GEFS agree with this scenario as well, although there are hints here of southern and eastern locations in the forecast area having a chance of receiving heavy rain. Meanwhile, the ECMWF places the maxima over the southeast half of the forecast area with widespread 2 inch rainfall totals. So plenty to still to sort out over the next several days.

A check of meteorological parameters from the GEFS show 850mb winds 1-2 standard deviations above normal, PWATS 1-2 standard deviations above normal, and 850mb moisture flux up to 2-3 standard deviations above normal.

The deep snowpack will ripen due to warm temperatures and rainfall with at least some runoff and rises on area rivers. However it is too early to determine if there will be a flooding threat during this period.

A strong cold front will sweep across the area Tuesday afternoon sending temperatures back below freezing. 850mb temperatures will run 1-2 standard deviations below normal Wednesday and Thursday. This yields temperatures on Wednesday about 5 degrees below normal and on Thursday around 10 degrees below normal.

AVIATION /16Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Focus here is on clipper storm tracking across the eastern Great Lakes this morning and into New York State this afternoon. Highest snowfall totals and highest snowfall rates will occur across the higher elevations and northern locations of the forecast area. Thus greatest impact from this weak storm will be observed at KPSF, with intermediate impacts at KALB and KGFL, and no impact at KPOU.

Specifically, snow will develop at all terminals, except KPOU, in the 16-18Z period with IFR conditions. TAF forecast has 1SM -SN. It's possible that terminals could see 1/2SM to 1/4SM in SN/+SN briefly. The most likely location for this would be KPSF. No snow is expected at KPOU, thus VFR conditions through the TAF period.

Given the quick movement of the system, snow will end at all terminals by 00Z or so.

All terminals will see a return to VFR conditions toward the end of the forecast period.

Outlook .

Saturday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Sunday: Low Operational Impact. Breezy NO SIG WX. Sunday Night: Moderate Operational Impact. Breezy Chance of RA. Monday: High Operational Impact. Definite RA. Monday Night: High Operational Impact. Definite RA. Tuesday: High Operational Impact. Likely RA. Tuesday Night: Moderate Operational Impact Scattered SHRA. SHSN. Wednesday: Moderate Operational Impact. Scattered SHSN.

HYDROLOGY. Temperatures will remain below normal through Sunday, so little melting and/or runoff is expected through the next several days. A period of light snow is expected today. This will allow the snow pack to be maintained and for some ice to build on shallow waterways, especially during the overnight hours.

Temperatures will likely rise to above normal values by Monday into Tuesday, with periods of rain likely. This will likely lead to at least some ripening and melting of the snowpack and runoff, although it is too early to determine if there will be a flooding threat during this period. Rises on area waterways are likely during this timeframe.
