Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 1030 AM EDT Thu Aug 13 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry weather through the end of the week, with temperatures remaining above average. Low pressure will bring the chance for rain this weekend before a cold front ushers in cooler weather next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. High pressure remains in control of our region today with only passing cirrus departing the eastern fringe of the area as of 1030 AM. More cirrus is poised over the western Great Lakes, but in between these two areas and deep moisture limited to Pennsylvania, an utter chasm of dry air remains in place over western New York and the Finger Lakes. This will be our predominant regime for today which will allow for abundant sunshine and still low humidity values. The net result will be yet another day with above normal temperatures.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. High pressure over northern Quebec will slowly drift southward Friday and Friday night. Dry conditions are expected across the eastern Great Lakes during this time. Temperatures will rise into the low to mid 80s Friday and fall into the low to mid 60s Friday night.

A slow moving closed upper level low will become an open wave across the Ohio Valley Saturday and Saturday night. Surface low pressure will deepen over Ohio and West Virginia while high pressure remains across the Northeast. As these two airmasses draw closer a strong easterly low-level jet will transport moisture from the Atlantic just south of New York State. As low pressure moves northward, the chance for showers will increase across Western NY Saturday and Saturday night. Mostly dry conditions expected east of Lake Ontario. By Sunday, the high off New England will quickly depart and low pressure over eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania will transfer to the Mid-Atlantic coast. Warm air advection will increase across the region while moisture spills into New York State. Showers are likely Sunday.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A well defined upper level trough will push east across the Mid-West and eventually the Northeast throughout the first half of the new work week. As the upper level trough approaches, its associated cold front will cross the central Great Lakes Sunday night before crossing the area on Monday. With its arrival and passage, expect the chances and likelihood of showers and thunderstorms to increase from west to east throughout the day on Monday.

As the front departs the region and enters the Northeast, chances for showers will decrease from west to east Monday night. Behind the departing system, a large area of high pressure will engulf much of the eastern half of the CONUS Tuesday before beginning to build overhead on Wednesday. With that said, residual instability over the region on Tuesday along with any leftover moisture may be conducive to support a few showers. Otherwise, primarily dry weather for the remainder of the forecast period.

Highs throughout the first half of the work week will range in the 70s, with the exception of a couple of 80 degree readings along the Lake Plains on Monday.

AVIATION /15Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. High pressure and light winds with no ceilings expected through tonight. Southern Tier valley fog developing late tonight.

Outlook .

Friday and Friday Night . Mainly VFR with local IFR in river valley fog across the Southern Tier late Friday night. Saturday through Monday . Mainly VFR with a chance of showers.

MARINE. High pressure across the Great Lakes will maintain overall light winds and waves on the lakes through tonight. High pressure drifts to the north Friday and Friday night while low pressure moves through the Ohio Valley. This will lead to an increasing northeast flow, with small craft headlines possible Friday night.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
