Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 323 AM EST Sun Jan 17 2021

SYNOPSIS. A large . slow moving storm system will make its way from New England to the Canadian maritimes today with cold air in its wake supporting accumulating lake enhanced snow east of both Lakes Erie and Ontario. While the widespread snow will gradually taper off east of Lake Ontario late today and tonight . lake snows will become more common east of Lake Erie In fact. the higher terrain south of Buffalo could pick up a foot of snow by Monday night Otherwise. a more wintry pattern will keep frequent . accumulating snow showers in the forecast through at least mid week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/. Deep moisture in the wake of a stacked low over Maine will keep accumulating . lake enhanced snows over the Eastern Lake Ontario region through most of today. This will especially be the case from the Tug Hill south where as much as six more inches of accumulation is expected by nightfall. The southward progression of a sfc trough will push the lake enhanced snows to the south shore of the lake tonight where an inch or so of accumulation is anticipated.

Meanwhile . generally nuisance lake enhanced snow showers are already in place across parts of the Srn Tier. Deeper synoptic moisture moving in ahead of the next shortwave will combine with a lifting cap to fuel more efficient snow making for that area later today into tonight. Have thus raised a winter weather advisory for that area that will be in effect through at least Monday. Daytime snow accums across the Southern Tier will generally range from one to three inches with an additional 2 to 4 inches expected tonight.

Otherwise . today and tonight will continue to feature a wealth of clouds across the region. Scattered flurries and nuisance snow showers found outside of the aforementioned lake snow areas today will increase in coverage tonight with a sfc trough sagging into the region. Most areas outside of the lake snow areas should be able to scrape up at least a coating . if not an inch or so of accumulation. This could make some roadways slick for the Monday morning commute.

Sfc based trough over the western counties on Monday will focus enough lift for a general inch or two accumulation. While this could be a headache for motorists on untreated roadways . the main concern will more concentrated lake snows east of Lake Erie. Three to six inches of snow are expected to accumulate on Monday across parts of the SOuthern Tier . especially for the higher terrain. Unlike the previous day (Sun) . Monday afternoon temps will struggle to make it to freezing in most areas. This will further aggravate road conditions.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. Several disturbances will traverse through a thermal trough that will extend from the Upper Great Lakes across Lake Ontario during the Monday night through Tuesday night time period. Unlike the days leading into this period . a colder airmass with H85 temps of -10 to -12c will certainly support enough instability over the lakes for pure lake effect. This will focus accumulating lake snows east of both lakes. Headlines will likely be needed for this 36 hour period.

The trough will push south of Lake Ontario on Wednesday . and with a -15c H85 airmass in place . fairly widespread lake snow showers can be anticipated for the western counties.

Ridging Wednesday night with non-diurnal temp trend.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Behind the passing system, 850H temps of around -15C to -18C will continue to allow for the potential for a lake response east of both lakes into the first half of Wednesday morning. But synoptic moisture as of right now looks minimal, so any lake response looks weak with light snow.

An area of low pressure will track from near James Bay southeast to Southern Quebec from Thursday morning through Friday morning. As this system tracks southeast, an associated warm front will cross the WNY and Northern Finger Lakes area, causing warming temperatures aloft where 850H temps warm to around -5C for Thursday morning. Some snow showers will accompany the passing warm front, with additional snow showers more likely with the weak passing cold front later in the day on Thursday into Thursday night.

Behind the passing cold front Thursday night, lake enhanced and then lake effect snow is expected east and southeast of the lakes on and off through Saturday as 850H temperatures drop from around -9C Friday morning to around -18C by Saturday morning.

During this period temperatures will be around 5 to as much as 10 degrees below normal, except on Thursday and Friday where temperatures will be near to slightly above normal.

AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. For the 06Z TAFS plumes of snow to the east of both lakes will bring IFR and lower flight conditions. Though marginal instability, conditions will favor heavy snow east of Lake Ontario that will continue to bring KART IFR and lower ceiling and visibility this morning. As winds subtly veer Sunday this snow off Lake Ontario will orient just south of KART and across the southern Tug Hill region. Meanwhile off Lake Erie, though lighter, snow showers will continue to produce MVFR/IFR flight conditions for KJHW through the morning hours. Tonight this band of snow off Lake Erie may sneak up towards KBUF with light snow showers. As a surface trough drops southward across the region tonight, it will then carry snows back southward, with lake effect snow with reduced visibilities likely near KIAG/KROC tonight . with snows off Lake Erie also in the vicinity of KJHW.

Outside of the lake snows, MVFR flight conditions will be widespread . and southwest winds will be gusty . up to 25 knots or so.

Outlook .

Monday through Thursday . MVFR/IFR possible in scattered snow showers east of both lakes.

MARINE. Fresh to strong westerlies will continue to support small craft advisories today into at least this evening for all of the New York nearshore waters.

As the sfc pressure gradient weakens tonight . winds will gradually subside. This will especially be the case on Lake Erie where winds and waves are forecast to drop below small craft advisory criteria by late evening.

While moderate to occasionally fresh westerlies will produce choppy conditions throughout the Lower Great Lakes on Monday . conditions are expected to remain below SCA criteria.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . Winter Storm Warning until 7 PM EST this evening for NYZ006>008. Winter Weather Advisory until 5 PM EST Monday for NYZ012-019- 020-085. MARINE .
