Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 249 PM EST Thu Dec 5 2019

SYNOPSIS. A weak area of low pressure over Wisconsin will move across our forecast area on Friday. This will produce a general snowfall with most areas picking up a couple inches of accumulation. Some nuisance lake snows in its wake will then be found southeast of both lakes Friday night into Saturday. Milder weather can then be anticipated Sunday into the start of the new work week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. A lowering cap with the onset of weak warm advection this evening will weaken and bring an end to the nuisance lake snows found southeast of both lakes. There will be no rest for the weary though . as a synoptic system is already on our far western horizon.

A 100kt jet streak over the upper-most Mississippi valley this evening will support an area of light snow that will gradually blossom into a large area of accumulating snow as it passes through the Lower Great Lakes on Friday. The expansion and intensification of the approaching synoptic based snow will come as a result of an associated sfc reflection becoming organized within a tight H925- 70 baroclinic zone under the aforementioned UL jet.

As the sfc wave approaches our region late tonight . it will evolve into a weak 'clipper-like' low that will cross our region during the day Friday. Lift generated under the left front (exit region) quadrant of the 100kt H25 jet will coincide with forcing from a 40- 45kt low level jet to produce a 4-6 hour burst of steady snow that will cross our region LATE tonight through the first half of Friday morning. Snow accumulations will generally total one to three inches.

In the wake of the system . the widespread synoptic snow will give way to more lake driven snows Friday afternoon and evening as H85 temps will drop off to around -10c. The deepening cold air will prompt the limiting cap to rise to nearly 10kft . so this next round of lake snow could include some moderately heavy activity times Friday night. A general 300-310 steering flow will direct the lake effect into the typical snowbelts southeast of both lakes where two to four inches of accumulation will be possible. Outside of the main lake effect areas . there could be enough scattered snow shower activity to leave a coating in some areas. It will be a colder night with mins in the teens away from the lake shores.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. Lake effect snow showers will continue into the morning on Saturday southeast of Lake Ontario. Snow showers will further dissipate through the morning as an area of high pressure tracks toward the area. As ridging increases with the high approaching from the southwest, lowering equilibrium heights and drier air will start to reduce the lake response off of Lake Ontario. By the start of this period, any lake response off of Lake Erie should be minimal to none as the drier air and ridging from the approaching area of high pressure gets to the Lake Erie area earlier.

Outside of any potential lake effect off of Lake Ontario, with the area of high pressure centering over the Finger Lakes by mid- afternoon on Saturday, the weather overall will be dry. This will continue through the late day on Sunday as the area of high pressure tracks east to the coast of New England by Sunday afternoon. As the area of high pressure crosses the region, west to northwest winds will shift to the south through the day on Saturday. As winds shift, cold air advection will weaken and warm air advection will take over from west to east. Before coming to an end, cold air advection will cause the 850H temperatures to bottom out at around -12C across WNY and to -15C east of Lake Ontario on Saturday morning. With the cold air advection continuing through Saturday, high temperatures will be in the low to mid 20s east of Lake Ontario and in the upper 20s to near 30 for all other areas.

Dry and cool conditions will continue through Saturday night as the area of high pressure slides east through the night. Temperatures Saturday night will be in the low to mid teens east of Lake Ontario, and in the upper teens to mid 20s for the higher terrain to the lake plains respectively.

On Sunday, as the area of high pressure tracks farther east and a trough approaches from the west, increased southerly flow will start to increase warm air advection through the day. With the area of high pressure influencing the weather, dry conditions are expected across the area through the daytime hours. After early morning lows in the upper teens to mid 20s, the afternoon highs will be in the low to mid 30s east of Lake Ontario and in the upper 30s to mid 40s across the rest of the area.

Sunday night, a frontal boundary and trough will slowly track toward the area. As the boundary tracks east, weak waves of low pressure will track northeast, increasing our chances for precipitation. Chance POPs will cover far WNY by the late evening, and continue to increase from west to east through the night. Increased forcing and increasing moisture will cause precipitation to track farther east into the area, and most locations will have likely POPs by daybreak on Monday. As precipitation starts, it should be mostly in the form of rain, but some higher spots where the temperatures remain cooler could see some mixing with or change to snow. Lows Sunday night will be in the low to mid 30s across the higher terrain, and in the upper 30s to near 40 for the lower elevations.

On Monday, an area of low pressure centered over the mid-Mississippi Valley will track northeast along the nearly stationary boundary to Lake Huron by the evening on Monday, strengthening in the process. This area of low pressure will strengthen in the left exit region of a strengthening 250 jet with 250H winds reaching 160 kts as it tracks northeast across the Great Lakes. Precipitation on Monday will continue to overspread the region through the day, making for a soggy first day of the workweek. Most of the precipitation on Monday will be in the form of rain, but some snow or mixing with snow early will be possible in the higher terrain. Highs on Monday will be in the low to mid 40s across the higher terrain, and in the upper 40s to near 50 in the lower elevations.

Monday night, the area of low pressure will track northeast from near Lake Huron to western Quebec. As this system continues to track northeast, its trailing cold front will approach the area. Forcing and a continued moisture influx ahead of the front will help continue the likelihood of rain across the area. Low temperatures Monday night will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. In the wake of a strong cold front . dramatically colder air will pour across the Great Lakes Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. The magnitude and depth of the cold air, available moisture, and position of upper level features all look to be FAVORABLE FOR A SIGNIFICANT LAKE EFFECT SNOW EVENT east of Lakes Erie and Ontario. Obviously at this time range specifics are not possible in terms of location and amounts. Stay tuned.

AVIATION /20Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Cigs of 2500 to 3500 ft late this afternoon should improve to around 5000 ft by evening as the lake supported snow showers weaken and become less widespread. The exceptions will be southeast of both lakes where mainly MVFR cigs will accompany lake effect snow showers. Vsbys in areas of lake snows will range from 2-5SM.

Mainly VFR conditions early tonight will then deteriorate . as weak low pressure approaching from the Upper Great Lakes will lead to the onset of widespread snow after 08z. Cigs will drop to MVFR levels while vsbys will drop to IFR to LIFR levels across the far western counties.

IFR to LIFR conditions in widespread snow can be expected thorugh midday Friday. Slow improvement is anticipated for the afternoon and evening.

Outlook . Saturday and Sunday . VFR. Monday . VFR to MVFR in rain showers. Tuesday . MVFR in mixed precipitation.

MARINE. Small craft advisories will progressively drop off tonight . as fresh northwesterlies will gradually weaken with the passage of a shortwave ridge.

In the wake of a clipper-like surface low on Friday . northwest winds will freshen on both lakes Friday night. This could lead to a new round of SCAs for Lake Erie and parts of Lake Ontario.

A large area of high pressure will pass over the Lower Great Lakes on Saturday. This will support generally light winds and negligible waves. Southerly winds will then freshen on both lakes late Saturday night and Sunday. While this will push the highest wave action into Canadian waters . rough conditions north of Mexico Bay could support a SCA.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EST this evening for LEZ040- 041. Small Craft Advisory until 5 PM EST this afternoon for LEZ020. Small Craft Advisory until 5 AM EST Friday for LOZ043>045. Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EST this evening for LOZ042.
