Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 257 PM EST Mon Jan 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. While weak high pressure will provide fair dry weather through the first half of tonight . conditions will then deteriorate as a storm passing over the region on Tuesday will guarantee that we will experience some wintry precipitation. A wintry mix will be found across at least the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes region . while mainly snow will be found elsewhere. All areas will pick up a little light snow Tuesday night. Temperatures for the remainder of the week will average below normal . especially on Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Weak high pressure will provide us with fair dry weather through at least the first half of tonight.

A weak sfc low over the Upper Ohio Valley late tonight will then track across our forecast area on Tuesday. While this will guarantee that our region will experience wintry precipitation . there is still some uncertainty as to how far north the mixed pcpn will get. At this juncture . a wintry mix is anticipated for the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes region late tonight into Tuesday with snow and sleet accumulations forecast to be in the vcnty of 1-2 inches. Meanwhile sites further north should pick up mainly wet snow to the tue of 3-5 inches.

Given the more northerly track of the system and after collaboration with adjacent offices . have expanded the area for the winter wx advisory for the remaining counties (Ern Lake Ontario region)

Tuesday night . colder air in the wake of the exiting sfc low will enable any residual mixed pcpn to change back to just snow. Snow amounts expected Tues night will range from an inch or so over the western counties to as much as three more inches east of Lake Ontario.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Cold northerly flow will support scattered lake driven snow showers Wednesday and Wednesday night . but low cap and drying synoptic environment will prevent significant accumulations.

Relatively cold H85 temps of -15 to -18c will support scattered lake snow showers Thursday and Friday . although generally insignificant snowfall amounts are expected (cap <6kft). Temps will average well below normal.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Lake effect snow showers will end by Saturday as high pressure will builds into the Lower Great Lakes.

A mid level trough will reach the central US by Saturday night, then move towards the Ohio Valley and eastern Great Lakes Sunday. Warm air advection ahead of a surface low will increase chances for rain, snow, and/or a wintry mix Sunday. There are timing differences in the mid-range models but all are in agreement that low pressure will deepen as it moves off the east coast into early next week. Wrap- around moisture will increase the chance for snow across the region during this time.

AVIATION /20Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. VFR conditions with generally mid and high clouds will be found throughout the region through the first half of tonight.

Conditions will then deteriorate late tonight and especially Tuesday when a weak surface low will move through the region. Cigs will lower to MVFR levels with mixed pcpn across the Southern Tier late tonight with MVFR overspreading the remainder of western New York during the day Tuesday. Pcpn will be largely mixed freezing rain and sleet across the Southern Tier Tuesday morning and midday . then snow later in the day into Tuesday night. The remainder of the region should experience MVFR to IFR conditions in mainly wet snow with this event.

Outlook .

Wednesday . Scattered snow showers with local IFR and MVFR CIGS in the morning, improving to VFR. Thursday and Friday . MVFR/VFR with a chance of snow showers. Saturday . Mainly VFR but MVFR possible early in Rochester.

MARINE. High pressure will build across the area today, with light winds and negligible waves lasting into tonight.

Low pressure will then move northeastward from the Ohio Valley tonight and weaken as it moves across Western New York Tuesday and Tuesday night. High pressure will remain to the north of the Great Lakes. This will result in a period of stronger ENE winds on the lakes, which is likely to require small craft headlines for most of Lake Ontario, and possibly Lake Erie tonight into Tuesday night.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . Winter Weather Advisory from noon Tuesday to 8 AM EST Wednesday for NYZ007-008. Winter Weather Advisory from 9 AM Tuesday to 6 AM EST Wednesday for NYZ005-006. Winter Weather Advisory from 8 AM Tuesday to 1 AM EST Wednesday for NYZ001>004-010-011-014. Winter Weather Advisory from 4 AM to 7 PM EST Tuesday for NYZ019>021. Winter Weather Advisory from 6 AM to 10 PM EST Tuesday for NYZ012-013-085. MARINE . None.

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.
