Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Binghamton NY 656 PM EST Sat Dec 2 2023

Spotty showers and some drizzle continues over north central NY this evening. A round of steadier rain is expected Sunday as a low pressure system moves through. Temperatures will be above average into early next week. The pattern remains unsettled next week, with a cooling trend and perhaps some snow showers by mid to late week.


Increased the coverage of drizzle and fog a bit for tonight with the evening updates based on recent observations. Main concern looks to be late tomorrow afternoon into the evening where model soundings show some elevated instability west of I-81 possibly resulting in a few thunderstorms. Given the limited amount of instability now modeled it does not look like gusty winds would transfer to the surface at this time.

345 PM Update...

Spotty showers and pockets of drizzle continue to work their way across CNY, but they will be diminishing this evening and becoming more concentrated near and north of the NYS Thruway and around the Finger Lakes along a stalled frontal boundary.
Meanwhile low pressure developing over the Southeast will be moving north along the spine of the Appalachians overnight and rain will be pushing in from the south before daybreak tomorrow.
Rain is expected to reach NE PA between 4-6 AM and reach the Southern Tier prior to daybreak. Rain will continue to spread northward across the rest of CNY through the morning.
Temperatures will be relatively mild tonight with lows in the lower 40s. Northern Oneida County will slip back into the upper 30s.

As this low moves to the east and off the mid-Atlantic coast during the mid-to-late afternoon, a second area of low pressure will cross the eastern Great Lakes enhancing showers over CNY into the evening. Some of the CAMS do hint at the potential of a gusty line of showers moving west to east over the area during the evening hours, so this will be something to watch. Despite the clouds and rain, the flow will be generally out of the south keeping it mild with highs tomorrow in the upper 40s and low 50s. Rainfall totals for late tonight through tomorrow night are still on track to range between 0.50-1.00 inch.

330 PM Update:

Surface low pressure over Lake Ontario will lift into the middle Saint Lawrence Valley by Monday morning. Steadier rain will lift out of the area Sunday night, with W to WNW flow bringing lake effect rain showers, mixing with snow at times in higher elevation areas heading into Monday morning. 850 mb temps will be in the -5 to -7C range, promoting light precipitation, continuing into Tuesday as precip changes to mostly light snow.

330 PM Update:

Expect some fluctuation in light lake effect snow showers Tuesday night into Wednesday, with light precip still favored. A clipper system may drop into the area Thursday, spreading rain and snow showers over most of the area through the early evening hours, before diminishing again. SW flow will bring warmer temperatures to the area Friday and Saturday, with precip chances lingering over north-central NY.

645 PM Update A weak surface front has been slowly dropping south with drizzle and light rain showers as well as widespread fog north of the front. ITH and SYR are seeing LIFR conditions and it does not look like the conditions will change much through at least before 6Z. Vis may improve between the drizzle/rain showers but cigs will likely stay low. The drizzle and showers are headed into RME in the next hour but persistent fog was less certain.
BGM and ELM look to get some of the low cigs as well though confidence was lower that any vis restrictions would develop at ELM. AVP will hold onto VFR for a while longer until rain moves in late tonight around 8Z. SE winds will help keep cigs a little higher for the overnight but as the winds become more SW aloft tomorrow morning, cigs will likely fall to near IFR.

With rain and plentiful low level moisture, most terminals will see IFR vis and cigs through much of the day into 0Z. Some brief improvement is possible in the afternoon as some instability develops and could help mix in some drier air to the surface mainly for ITH and ELM. The better conditions will not last long so IFR conditions were kept in the TAFs as prevailing.


Sunday night...Restrictions likely, especially for the CNY terminals, due to lingering rain showers and areas of fog.

Monday through Tuesday...Possible restrictions due to rain and snow showers.

Wednesday...Mostly VFR.

Thursday... Restrictions possible due to snow showers.
