area forecast discussion

751 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019

Synopsis
Isolated showers and maybe a thunderstorm will dissipate this
evening. A cold front will cross the region on Thursday with
isolated to scattered showers, especially for northeast
pennsylvania. Dry and cool high pressure builds in behind the
front to end the week and lasts through the weekend.

Near term through Thursday
7 pm update...

convection has greatly decreased and mostly moved out of the
area. A few more showers are trying to move into steuben county
but daytime heating is fading lowering the instability. Forcing
is nearly gone with the best well east. Question still on valley
fog late tonight. Some cloud debris will inhibit the radiational
cooling.

Made minor changes to the forecast mostly to match the current
conditions and the trend.

Previous discussion...

short wave continues to push east and is just about exiting our
forecast area as of 1830z. There is an area of convergence at
the surface, where a weak line of convection has developed
between i88 and i90 corridors. However, water vapor shows very
dry air aloft and any updrafts are having a very hard time
punching into this dry air layer, so convection has remained
quite weak. Convection this morning also had hindered
instability this afternoon, as cloud cover limited much surface
heating from occurring. There has been some recovery over the
last hour or two and low level lapse rates are increasing, but
the dry air mentioned above should be enough to limit the
vertical extent of any storms that can get going.

Showers and thunderstorms will dissipate as forcing continues to
push further east this evening and with the loss of heating.

Skies will likely remain partly cloudy overnight, but may see an
increase in clouds by morning with a cold front dropping down
from the north. Valley fog development seems likely with the wet
antecedent conditions from rainfall earlier today and light
winds overnight, but if clouds push into the region sooner than
expected, then this could hinder fog development.

Tomorrow cold front crosses the area, but instability will be
weak, but there could be enough instability realized across ne
pa for a few thunderstorms to develop. A much drier and cooler
airmass pushes in behind the front with high pressure overhead
by early Friday morning.

Short term Thursday night through Saturday
Frontal boundary will be just south of the area on Friday
morning and may trigger a few light showers over the extreme
south early in the day. Then, high pressure will build in for
the weekend with much drier air. Closed upper low will drop into
eastern ny and may trigger some instability showers, especially
east of i-81, but coverage will be very limited. Otherwise,
expect below normal temperatures through the period with the
northerly flow.

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday
A relatively quiet weather period as an upper low slowly
withdraws from eastern ny into new england on Monday. This may
result in a few instability showers over the eastern zones,
especially with daytime heating. Behind the low, some weak
upper ridging develops. At the surface, ridging noses down from
northern new england as remains in place into Tuesday. So
despite a few light showers due to the upper low, the period
should generally be dry and comfortable with afternoon highs
trending from below to near normal by Tuesday.

Aviation 00z Thursday through Monday
730 pm update...

vfr all sites with showers and thunderstorms out of the area.

Only a very small chance of showers until late Thursday.

Biggest question is the valley fog at elm late tonight.

Convective debris moving in now so clearing won't happen anytime
soon. Winds go light to calm with dewpoint temperatures staying
up. Went closer to guidance with MVFR starting at 08z ending at
14z. Included a tempo 9 to 13z for ifr near airport minimums.

Models show a MVFR deck coming in for a few hours from the west
Thursday morning. In cny started this around 10z and ended
around 14z. Confidence is medium with most of the guidance
showing this.

Light and variable or southwest winds tonight. Thursday west to
northwest winds at around 6 kts.

Outlook...

Thursday night through Monday...VFR, except late night early
morning fog possible at kelm.

Bgm watches warnings advisories
Pa... None.

Ny... None.
