Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 511 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

High pressure passing across the region will bring dry weather tonight and Tuesday. Some unsettled weather will return by midweek as a weakening area of broad low pressure moves into the Great Lakes.

An area of showers north of Georgian Bay and the Ottawa Valley will pass across northern New York early this evening as another shortwave will dig into the region. This activity should be over by midnight with improving skies, while the remainder of the area will remain dry under mainly clear skies. Lightening winds and clearing skies will provide good radiational cooling with overnight lows tonight in the 30s with a few upper 20s possible across the North Country.

Surface ridge settles over the area Tuesday, while the axis of an amplifying upper level ridge slides into the central Great Lakes.
This will maintain dry weather and plenty of sunshine. Modest warm advection along with sunshine will help modify temperature with highs getting into the 60s for many areas south of Lake Ontario, with 50s along the immediate Lake Ontario shoreline into the eastern Lake Ontario region.

Surface high pressure over Hudson Bay will extend south across the eastern Great Lakes Tuesday night. As this area of high pressure slides east, a weakening low pressure system is expected to slowly move across the Midwest and into the Great Lakes region Wednesday through Thursday. Thereafter, it will be engulfed by a secondary low pressure system over Manitoba, leading to a shallow but stubborn upper level troughing pattern across much of the Northeast.

This system will ease a pair of warm frontal boundaries through the forecast area from the southwest Tuesday night into Wednesday, followed by a increasingly diffuse cold front late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. While Tuesday night will be dry with increasing clouds as surface high pressure remains in control over the region, rain chances will ramp up from the west by Wednesday morning as a plume of Gulf moisture gets pulled northward into the region. The main warm frontal boundary is expected to slow, if not completely stalling out over the region as it runs up against the strong ridge over New England.
This will likely cause sharply lower rain chances Wednesday for the North Country compared to areas south of Lake Ontario and western New York.

System cold front works in from the west Wednesday night and Thursday bringing another round of showers. Better instability parameters ahead and along this front could bring a few embedded thunderstorms to Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night. Far western New York is then expected to begin drying out by Thursday evening.

Temperatures through the midweek timeframe will heavily depend on the timing of the frontal passages and precipitation, although temperatures should average on the mild side both Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s both days.

A large low pressure system will be in the process of stacking in the vicinity of James Bay on Friday. This increasingly positively tilted trough associated with the system will swing a pair of cold fronts through the region between Friday and Saturday. This will lead to renewed chances for rain showers by the end of the week as well as a day-to- day cooling trend from Friday into the weekend. Showers should taper off with less coverage from late Saturday morning through Sunday. Monday should also be mainly dry, but a few sprinkles or showers can't be completely ruled out as a quick moving shortwave trough crosses the area. But a sfc high over the region and the lack of synoptic moisture should limit the potential for any precip.

Temperatures will start out above normal for Friday, but will cool to around 5 degrees below normal for the weekend. Temperatures start to warm back to normal on Monday.

High pressure will continue to build into the region with clearing skies this evening. High confidence for VFR through the period everywhere except for KART, where an isolated shower this evening could bring a brief period of MVFR conditions. West-northwest winds gusting to 20-25 knots will diminish around sunset this evening with light winds overnight into Tuesday morning. While skies will be mainly clear, not anticipating any valley fog with incoming drier airmass.


Tuesday...Mainly VFR with a chance of showers late Tuesday night over western NY.
Wednesday and Thursday...MVFR/VFR with showers likely.
Friday and Saturday...MVFR/VFR with a chance of showers.

High pressure will build over the both lakes tonight and Tuesday.
Winds will be light and variable on Lake Erie with an onshore flow developing by Tuesday afternoon. Elevated west winds on Lake Ontario into early tonight will diminish by Tuesday morning with an onshore flow developing by Tuesday afternoon.

Elevated easterly winds and small craft conditions should develop on Lake Ontario, especially on the western end ahead of an approaching warm front by Wednesday. Winds turn more southerly on both lakes behind the warm front by Thursday.
