Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 802 PM EDT Tue Aug 11 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front will cross the area late this evening and early overnight. This front will produce a few showers and thunderstorms. Mainly dry weather will then return Wednesday through the end of the week, with temperatures remaining above average.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. WV loop shows axis of shortwave trough has moved into southern Quebec and eastern NY taking vigorous convection to the east of our forecast area. Have seen a few showers over Niagara and Orleans county since late afternoon and the main cold front is just starting to slip across the lower Niagara River back toward Long Point on Lake Erie. Though better upper support by far is to our east, could still be a shower or maybe a thunderstorm as the cold front moves across western NY rest of this evening. A very low chance though.

After late this evening, rest of the night will be quiet in terms of convection. With a cooling airmass and as surface high pressure edges from the mid Mississippi River valley to the central Great Lakes, expect abundant valley fog development overnight and into Wednesday morning.

Once the fog mixes out, expect a quiet day for Wed with generally light winds and sunny or mostly sunny skies except for some passing cirrus. Afternoon temperatures should still be able to reach the lower to mid 80s, but dew points are expected to fall throughout the day and result in a more comfortable day overall when compared to recent afternoons.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. A broad ridge of high pressure will extend from Hudson Bay to the Great Lakes Wednesday night and Thursday. This will result in dry weather with mainly clear skies. The surface ridge will build across Quebec on Friday, while a weak mid-level low develops near Kentucky. Most model guidance keeps the area dry, with only a small chance a few showers will sneak into the Southern Tier Friday afternoon. Otherwise, a dry pattern will persist through Friday.

High temperatures will range from the low to mid 80s. Due to the close proximity of the surface high the forecast is slightly cooler than consensus guidance for low temperatures with lows in the mid 50s to lower 60s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. High pressure will track east from Quebec into northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes during the weekend. Depending on the extent of the ridge, this may allow moisture and rain associated with a mid-level low into the area. Most 12Z model guidance has trended a drier for our our area with this system. However, guidance suggests a potential for significant rainfall (2+ inches) somewhere with this system, so even though chances are low there is a risk of steady/heavy rainfall. The best chance for any rain is across southern and western portions of the forecast area. Temperatures will remain slightly above normal during the weekend.

A cold front will cross the area on Monday. This will lead to a chance for showers and thunderstorms, and will also usher in cooler weather for Tuesday.

AVIATION /00Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Threat of a few showers and maybe a brief MVFR ceiling remains in play until midnight at IAG and BUF as cold front works across western NY. Othewise, the main concern overnight will be the development of locally dense valley fog with associated LIFR conditions, some of this getting into JHW through daybreak on Wednesday. Other terminals should stay VFR though into Wednesday.

Outlook .

Thursday and Friday . Mainly VFR with local IFR in river valley fog across the Southern Tier each late night and morning. Saturday and Sunday . Mainly VFR with a chance of showers.

MARINE. After some choppy conditions this evening especially on Lake Erie, expect winds and waves to quickly diminish overnight. Relatively light winds are then expected for Wednesday and Thursday.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . None. 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.
