AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Albany NY 120 AM EDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. The holiday weekend into early next week looks very warm and mainly dry.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 106 AM EDT . Any remaining convection has diminished, so have removed pops and will mention dry forecast the rest of the night. Dealing with plenty of low stratus clouds and patchy fog, especially for areas from around the Mohawk and Hudson Valleys south/east. Increased cloud cover and added mention of dense fog, as some ASOS observations indicating 1/2 to 1/4 mile visibility. Low temperatures will be in the lower to mid 60s below 1500 feet with mid and upper 50s above that.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. Models show height rises for Independence Day in the wake of today/tonight's shortwave. In addition, a drier airmass should be in place with PWATs generally 1.25 inches or less, close to seasonal normal values. Forecast sounding suggest rather deep mixing, which should allow dewpoints to fall into the 50s and low 60s in the afternoon. So it follows that model QPF is sparse tomorrow, with just some activity forecast over the higher terrain of western New England and perhaps the eastern Catskills, where we will maintain slight chance PoPs. Forecast soundings suggest skinny CAPE with a lot of dry air at mid levels, so it seems that updrafts would have difficulty sustaining themselves. With 850 mb temps around 15C, expect highs mainly in the 80s, several degrees above normal. A tranquil night is expected Saturday night, although an isolated storm over the southern Adirondacks associated with weak height falls cannot be ruled out toward daybreak Sunday. Lows slightly milder than normal in the mid-50s to mid-60s.

On Sunday, the forecast area will be in rather fast northwesterly flow between an expansive upper ridge encompassing much of the eastern US and a trough working into northern New England. It will be a similar airmass to Independence Day, with very warm highs in the 80s to near 90 and rather low humidity levels. As such, model instability progs are not impressive, generally under 1000 J/kg. However, there is a hint of a weak shortwave tracking into our northern zones (southern Adirondacks and Lake George - Glens Falls region), along with a weak surface boundary that could touch off some showers and storms. 20-30 PoPs will handle this for now. Another tranquil night expected Sunday night with lows in the mid- 50s to mid-60s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Hot and humid weather is on tap as an upper-level ridge builds across the region. Temperatures early in the week will range from the 80s to lower 90s, then slowly rise to the mid-80s to mid-90s Wednesday through Friday. Dew points will generally be in the 60s with some lower 70s possible, especially by the later part of the week. This could yield apparent temperatures in the 95-100 F range in some parts of the region. Multiple days of heat headlines may be needed.

With the hot and humid air mass, multiple shortwaves/disturbances are expected to pass overhead, which can aid in mainly afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. Monday and Tuesday look to be the days with the least coverage (isolated) with greater coverage (scattered) Wednesday through Friday. It is too soon to determine severe potential on these days, though rather high precipitable water values of 1.25 to 1.75" could lead to locally heavy rainfall.

AVIATION /05Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Gradual clearing through daybreak. Fog forming in areas that have cleared. Including IFR visibilities and ceilings in areas that have cleared and have fog now, with fog continuing through around 10Z. Ceilings below 1000 feet at KPSF will continue through about 10Z with some intermittent MVFR visibilities. KPOU should have a ceiling just above 1000 feet through daybreak.

After the clouds and fog end around daybreak, only scattered clouds well above 3000 feet with VFR visibilities through this evening.

Winds will be light, mainly north to northeast through this evening at less than 10 kt.

Outlook .

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

FIRE WEATHER. A very warm and drier airmass will take hold for the weekend into Monday. Minimum RH values are expected to be in the 30 to 50 percent range for Independence Day, and 30 to 40 percent for Sunday and Monday. They will rebound to 80 to 100 percent at night. Winds will be fairly light each day. Precipitation chances will be minimal.

HYDROLOGY. Locally heavy rainfall remains possible through this evening, mainly along and south of I-90. Basin average totals are generally 0.25 to 1.00 inches south of I-90, but locally up to two inches is possible. Some urban/poor drainage flooding cannot be ruled out. High flash flood guidance due to dry antecedent conditions where the heaviest rainfall is forecast over the Mid Hudson Valley/Litchfield Hills will mitigate flash flood potential, although isolated flash flooding cannot be ruled out.

Mainly dry weather returns for the rest of the holiday weekend into Monday with only a couple of isolated thunderstorms possible at times.

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.
