Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 631 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

High pressure will build into the area today, bringing mainly dry weather that will last through the first part of the new work week. Temperatures will be below average through Monday, before returning to near normal levels by Tuesday.

IR satellite imagery shows cloudy skies across western NY and north central NY this morning. With a weak surface trough nearby, the stratus deck will hold especially across far western NY this morning. This trough may set off a few sprinkles or light rain shower across the Saint Lawrence Valley where deeper moisture is found.

An upper level trough will remain across the forecast area today through Monday. Cyclonic flow will maintain cool and breezy conditions, however unlike Saturday it will be drier. Surface analysis shows a weak surface trough across western Lake Ontario to eastern Lake Erie this morning. A wealth of clouds extend from southern Michigan to central NY with cloud-free conditions across the Saint Lawrence Valley this morning. This shield of clouds will slowly move east maintaining mostly cloudy skies through a bulk of the morning. The weak surface trough will move across the forecast area and clearing will begin from west to east late this morning through afternoon, with the exception of development of strato cumulus forming inland along the stable lake airmasses. Breezy today with gusts 20-30 mph by this afternoon.

A cold front will move across north central NY tonight. The front will encounter the dry airmass in place across the Northeast and showers will diminish as they approach the region. Chilly tonight with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s across the higher terrain to the low 30s elsewhere. Warm air advection will begin Monday as the core of the coldest air retreats to the northeast. Surface high pressure will remain in place and dry conditions are expected across the region. Warmer Monday with highs in the 50s and light winds.

While this period will start innocent enough with fair dry weather and moderating temperatures...a relatively flat upper level pattern will experience significant amplification that will lead to very active weather for the middle of the week. This will include a general quarter inch dousing of rain to add to our already very soggy start to Spring
The details

A wedge of high pressure extending from Nova Scotia and coastal New England to the Deep South will continue to provide fair dry weather to the region Monday night through at least early Tuesday afternoon.
The return flow around the backside of this fair weather feature will combine with a developing storm system over the Upper Great Lakes to direct a deepening southerly flow of notably milder air into our region. After several days of temperatures topping out in the 40s to lower 50s...a well mixed (35-40 LLJ) environment of H85 temps arnd +2c will allow us to look forward to widespread readings in the 60s Tuesday afternoon. This is where the 'party' will end though.

A vigorous Pacific based shortwave crossing the Upper Great Lakes Tuesday afternoon will phase with an already established longwave trough over eastern Canada during the course of Tuesday night. In the process...a wavy sfc frontal boundary along the leading edge of a sharp baroclinic zone will SLOWLY press through our forecast area through midday Wednesday.

Initially...a large swath of widespread rain will advect into our area from Ohio late Tuesday and especially Tuesday night. The precipitation will be supported by low level convergence along and ahead of a pre frontal sfc trough with significant reinforcing upper level lift in the vcnty of the left front exit region of a cyclonically curved 120kt H25 jet. PWAT values will hover just below 1.0" in the environment...thus supporting some moderately heavy rain at times. Will use 100% pops for the overnight period. While not overly impressed with the potential for convection...there is just enough elevated CAPE being advertised to maintain slgt chc wording for thunderstorms...mainly for the western counties and more directly for the Srn Tier. Basin average rainfall will be in the vcnty of a quarter inch...with local amounts as high as a half inch.

As the last sfc wave exits our region along the slow moving frontal boundary Wednesday morning...strong H925-70 frontogenetic forcing will take over on the backside of the system. While the deepest moisture will have been pushed across New England by this time...
there should still be enough moisture left behind during the morning hours to support leftover showers and possibly some steadier pockets of rain...mainly from the Finger Lakes eastward. The bulk of the moisture will then be stripped away by midday Wednesday...while very strong cold advection on gusty northwest winds will send H85 temps plunging below zero. The leftover rain showers could end as a bit of graupel or wet snow in the afternoon...especially across the elevated terrain. The cold advection should also promote a neutral...if not a non-diurnal temp trend for the afternoon with temps slowly falling through the 40s during a time of partial clearing.

A large Canadian sfc high centered over the Great Lakes Wednesday night will be accompanied by an influx of very dry air...and this will help to counteract a minimal lake response from a north- northwest upslope flow over Lake Ontario. The result will be fair dry weather...albeit it chilly with temperatures away from the lakes falling below freezing.

This period will largely feature fair dry weather with day to day a ridge over the nations mid section on Thursday will gradually push east to the Ohio valley and Lower Great Lakes by the weekend. While this high confidence solution will guarantee that our temperatures will climb to above normal levels...there is also increasing confidence that clouds and showers will accompany the warmer weather to start the weekend. More on that in the days to come.

VFR conditions will continue across western and north central NY through tonight.

A stratus deck with ceilings averaging 4-6k feet will remain across western NY and portions of north central NY this morning. A weak surface boundary will move through the region today and this should lower lower ceilings slightly across the higher terrain including KJHW through Sunday morning.

Strato cumulus will form along lake breezes today resulting in ceilings 3-5k feet from KIAG/KBUF to KROC. FEW-SCT ceilings will be across KJHW and KART. Clouds and winds will diminish through tonight.


Monday...Mainly VFR.
Tuesday...Mainly VFR. A chance of showers later in the afternoon.
Tuesday night and Wednesday...Areas of MVFR with showers.
Thursday...Mainly VFR.

After a brief lull, westerly winds will increase again today and another period of Small Craft Advisory conditions are expected on Lake Erie and the Upper Niagara River and the eastern end of Lake Ontario through tonight. Weaker winds and waves will reside across the waters Monday through Monday night. Southerly winds will freshen on the waters Tuesday and will likely result in Small Craft Advisory conditions into mid-week.

MARINE...Small Craft Advisory from 1 PM this afternoon to midnight EDT tonight for LEZ020-040-041.
Small Craft Advisory from 11 AM this morning to 6 AM EDT Monday for LOZ044-045.
