Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 130 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Hot and humid weather through at least Thursday with apparent temperatures during this time likely to reach 100F at many locations Tuesday and Wednesday. There will also be scattered showers and thunderstorms at times, especially during the afternoon and early evening hours.

Little reprieve from the muggy conditions with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s overnight. We still can't rule out a few showers within this muggy conditions and unstable atmosphere. There also could be some fog in the Southern Tier river valleys tonight, especially at locations which receive rain.

Slightly warmer aloft on Tuesday with 850mb temperatures rising to about +20C. It will also be more humid with dew points rising to around 70. This combination will result in dangerously hot conditions outside with heat index values in the upper 90s to lower 100s. Forecast highs trended slightly down due to the increased confidence in daytime instability showers and thunderstorms which will result in modest/localized relief from the heat. However, with this, dew points and moisture are slightly higher so heat index values still support a Heat Advisory for the entire forecast area.

...Heat Advisory in effect for the entire area as dangerous heat builds through Thursday...

Surface high pressure will remained anchored along the eastern seaboard as a slow amplification of the eastern CONUS ridge takes place during the period. This will result in a deep southerly flow which will bring HOT and HUMID conditions during the day and WARM and MUGGY conditions at night.

Mid level ridge will be firmly in place Wednesday with ensembles showing heights approaching 600 dm. 850 mb temperatures stay around +20C. Most high temperatures again in the upper 80s to lower 90s across the region with valley locations reaching the mid to upper 90s, with apparent temperatures in the upper 90s to lower 100s from midday through the afternoon. Nighttime temperatures will also remain elevated, with muggy conditions lasting even if heat index values drop some after sunset.

Model consensus shows the axis of the anomalously strong nearly 600 decameter ridge will be just to our south and southeast Thursday, just a slight jog from its position on Wednesday. This may bring 500 mb heights down just a smidge, along with surface temperatures/dew points possibly a couple of degrees cooler. All in all, very similar to the hot and steamy conditions expected for Wednesday, with heat index values again ranging from the mid 90s to very low 100s for the bulk of western and northcentral NY.

Positioning/proximity of the upper level ridge will suppress most of convection, but afternoon heating and instability with some forcing along lake breeze boundaries may bring some showers and storms each afternoon. Better chance for an isolated shower/storm would be toward the North Country/Saint Lawrence Valley closer to the northern periphery of the ridge.

A very gradual day-to-day 'cooling' is then expected for the Fri-Sun timeframe as successive shortwaves traversing eastward through central and eastern Canada slowly suppress the ridge to the south, leaving a quasi-zonal flow in place across the CONUS by the end of the period. That said, still want to emphasize that conditions are still going to remain very warm to hot with elevated humidity levels. In terms of temperatures, upper 80s/low 90s Friday will slowly trend downward to the mid and upper 80s by the end of the weekend, with the highest elevations several degrees cooler respectively on any given day. Heat index values will reach the low to mid 90s for all of the lower terrain Friday afternoon, upper 80s to low 90s Saturday afternoon, and mid 80s to near 90 by Sunday.

In terms of precipitation, there will be some increase in convection potential as we close out the work week and head into next weekend.
This will be owed to mainly two things: Upper level disturbances riding the northern periphery of the upper ridge passing closer and closer to the area as the center of the ridge slowly sags further south through the period, while a surface boundary also sags south toward the region from Canada. Areas that do receive some showers/storms, will enjoy some relief, however any reprieve will only be temporary.

A deep trough, sfc low and cold front will track across the region on Sunday night into Monday morning with widespread showers possible. The most notable change with this system will be the cooler air moving in behind the front. Highs on Monday will drop back into the upper 70s to mid 80s for the entire area.

Fog is possible in the Southern Tier river valleys with a brief period of MVFR vsby possible at KJHW. Otherwise, VFR at all terminals.

Mainly VFR flight conditions on Tuesday. Showers and storms will develop during the afternoon hours. Localized MVFR or lower possible.


Wednesday through Saturday...Mainly VFR, but a chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms inland from the lakes.

High pressure will be near the eastern Great Lakes through much of this week, offering light winds, generally 15 knots or less on the lakes.

A prolonged period of heat is expected for our region this week.
