AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Albany NY 359 AM EDT Fri Apr 10 2020

SYNOPSIS. Brisk, cool and unsettled weather will impact the region today as a large storm system tracks northeastward into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Some accumulation of snow is expected across the higher terrain with some rain showers for valley locations. Both the winds and the precipitation will subside tonight as high pressure builds in from the west. This high pressure area will bring a tranquil start to the weekend under partial April sunshine. Clouds increase Sunday before our next storm set to impact the region into early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. . Wind Advisory remains in effect for portions of eastern New York and western New England . . Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for accumulating snow across portions of the Adirondacks .

An active period of weather for the end of this week as large stacked low across the Canadian Maritimes will slowly lift northeastward today. Considerable wrap around moisture along with lake effect activity downwind of Lake Ontario will persist most of the day. While H850 temperatures will be more than cold enough for mainly snow, April sunshine will likely warm the boundary layer for a rain/snow mixture for lower elevations down to the valleys. For those higher terrains, with already a little snow pack from some snow overnight, some additional accumulations are expected. While the Froude number is at or greater than 2, the flow is supercritical/unblocked (rapid flow) so plenty of precipitation across many portions of the region through early afternoon. Thereafter, the Froude number falls where some of the snow accumulations will become a little more focused across the Dacks and into the southern Greens. Per coordination, we will continue without headlines for the southern Greens due to both accumulation potential and coverage (SPS could be issued).

Regarding the wind magnitudes, mixing layer heights will climb to between 3-4k feet where 30-40kt wind speeds reside. Combine those with some channeling down the Mohawk into the Capital Region, central Taconics and Berkshires, the wind advisory will remain in effect today.

High temperatures will range from 30s across the terrain to near 50F for the mid-Hudson Valley.

Winds, precipitation and cloud coverage will diminish through tonight as the large storm across the Canadian Maritimes continues to pull away with reduced influences for our region and high pressure ridge axis approaches from the central Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. A rather chilly night across the county warning area with mainly 20s for the terrain and lower 30s for the Hudson River Valley (H850 temperatures around -10C toward 12Z Saturday).

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. Saturday-Saturday night . The low and mid level flow becomes anticyclonic with high pressure building in from the OH Valley and the Mid Atlantic States. Despite increasing amounts of April sunshine, temps will run below normal to open the weekend with 40s to lower 50s in the valleys, and 30s to lower 40s over the hills and mtns as H850 temperatures rebound at or around -6C. The winds will be greatly reduced with the weaker sfc pressure gradient over the region. Fair and cold weather is expected Saturday Night, as the sfc high moves offshore. Some high and mid level clouds may drift in overnight in advance of next upstream developing storm with lows in the 20s to lower 30s.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The periods starts on Easter Sunday with ridging over the Northeast ahead of a deep and vigorous impulse moving through Texas rounding the base of a longwave trough. Southerly flow is forecast over the local area ahead of a sprawling area of low pressure attendant to this impulse. Despite clouds likely thickening, rather mild temperatures can be expected with the southerly flow. Some signal that a few showers could occur north and west of the Capital District along a sharpening warm frontal signature.

Main period of potentially impactful weather appears to be Sunday night into Tuesday as cyclogenesis occurs in conjunction with the aforementioned impulse ejecting quickly northeastward, going negatively tilted, and phasing with some northern stream energy. Latest deterministic models are seriously impressive with respect to the deepening rate and minimum central pressure of this cyclone considering its forecast inland track from the mid-Mississippi Valley to near James Bay 00Z Mon to 00Z Tue. For instance, 00Z ECMWF/GFS deepen the low around 20 mb over this time frame, with the minimum central pressure 965-970mb. Also, the 00Z GEFS has nearly all of its members reaching a minimum central pressure below 970 mb. However, as we are still 4-5 days out, a lot of factors have to come together for a storm of this magnitude to develop and much can change. For now, will continue to highlight the potential for strong winds in the warm sector on Monday, along with moderate to possibly heavy rainfall late Sunday night into Monday. Temperatures are likely to be very mild with the warm front easily clearing the area if latest model projections are correct, and some embedded thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.

Monday night into Tuesday, indications are for the dry slot to move into our area, with any precipitation becoming more showery and light. Winds may continue to be strong on Tuesday in the cold advection if the storm ends up being as strong as advertised, but it is not a classic track for a high/damaging westerly wind event. An anomalously cool airmass looks to set up in the wake of the cold front, persisting through the remainder of the forecast. Some periods of showers cannot be ruled out with disturbances rotating through the cyclonic flow, but predictability is low at this time. Some snow across the higher terrain cannot be ruled out with the anomalously cool airmass, especially at night.

AVIATION /06Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR conditions across the terminals at the start of the TAF period. Lingering moisture interacting with an upper disturbance moving in from the north could result in an isolated rain/snow shower for the rest of the night, but confidence is not high enough to include in the TAFs. As the disturbance nears the area during the day on Friday, coverage of showers will increase primarily over the higher terrain away from the terminals, but a few rain showers (possibly mixed with some wet snowflakes at times early and late in the day and throughout the day at KPSF) could drift over the terminals from time to time. Skies will likely become broken to overcast with low VFR and possibly some MVFR at times. Clouds and showers will diminish in coverage after 00Z Saturday.

Winds will increase late tonight into Friday morning, gusting to 30-40 kt at times from the west during most of the day. The winds will diminish after 00Z Saturday, but some gusts to 20-25kt are still possible.

Outlook .

Saturday: Low Operational Impact. Breezy. NO SIG WX. Saturday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Sunday: Low Operational Impact. Slight Chance of RA. Sunday Night: High Operational Impact. Breezy. Definite RA. Monday: High Operational Impact Breezy. Definite SHRA. RA . TSRA. Monday Night: Moderate Operational Impact. Breezy. Chance of SHRA. Tuesday: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX.

FIRE WEATHER. Brisk, cool and unsettled weather will impact the region today as a large storm system tracks northeastward into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Some accumulation of snow is expected across the higher terrain with some rain showers for valley locations. Both the winds and the precipitation will subside tonight as high pressure builds in from the west. This high pressure area will bring a tranquil start to the weekend under partial April sunshine. Clouds increase Sunday before our next storm set to impact the region into early next week.

The RH values will lower only to 40 to 70 percent during the afternoon, some 30s into the mid-Hudson Valley and southern portions of Litchfield County, CT. Expect the RH values to recover to around 70 to 95 percent Saturday morning.

West to northwest winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 35 to 50 mph by late morning and afternoon. Wind magnitudes will slowly diminish Friday night.

HYDROLOGY. No widespread hydro problems are expected into this weekend. Probabilities of increasing impacts from moderate to heavy rainfall are increasing for early next week.

Previous rainfall has resulted in some minor rises on rivers and streams; however, no widespread flooding occurred.

Cloudy, blustery and cool weather, with more valley rain showers and mountain snow showers are expected today through Friday evening. Some light to isolated moderate amounts of snow are possible for the western Adirondacks and southern Green Mtns.

Although most of the weekend will be dry, more rain looks to return for Sunday night through Monday Night. Another widespread soaking rainfall will be possible. The rainfall could be locally heavy and will have to monitor for some within bank sharp rises, if heavy QPF materializes in portions of the ALY HSA.
