Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 226 PM EDT Mon Mar 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will slowly cross the region tonight before moving off the New England coast Tuesday. This will produce widespread rain showers through tonight, which may mix with some wet snow later tonight especially across higher terrain. Showers will decrease in coverage Tuesday as the system moves away. Mainly dry weather will then return for Wednesday through the end of the week with slowly warming temperatures.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Radar imagery showing widespread showers and light rain across the region this afternoon, with a few small embedded pockets of moderate rain. The rain will remain fairly widespread through the rest of the afternoon and evening with temperatures remaining steady in the low to mid 40s in most locations, and upper 40s southeast of Lake Ontario.

Vertically stacked low pressure over the Algonquin Highlands of southern Ontario this afternoon will move southeast across central and eastern NY tonight before weakening further and moving off the New England coast Tuesday. Deep synoptic scale moisture and periods of ascent from vorticity maxima orbiting the closed low will continue to support widespread showers through tonight. The synoptic scale forcing will be augmented by marginal lake enhancement as the airmass grows colder aloft, and also by upslope flow across the higher terrain east and southeast of both lakes. Precipitation will be all rain through this evening, with some wet snow then mixing in across higher terrain late tonight through early Tuesday. There may be a slushy coating of snow on the grass across the highest terrain. Across lower elevations rain will still be the predominant precipitation type, although a few wet flakes may mix in at times very late tonight and early Tuesday. Lows will reach the mid to upper 30s on the lake plains, and lower 30s across higher terrain.

The coverage of precipitation will quickly diminish from late morning through the afternoon Tuesday as the closed low continues to weaken and move away from the region. By mid to late afternoon most areas should be dry, with just a few isolated to widely scattered showers left from the western Southern Tier to the western Finger Lakes. Expect highs in the low to mid 40s in most locations.

Tuesday night most locations will remain dry, with just a few isolated to widely scattered showers possible across the western Southern Tier and western Finger Lakes near a weak mid level trough axis which will be the remnants of the weakening closed low. Weak northeast upslope flow will likely allow plenty of cloud cover to remain across the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes, with clearing more likely for the North Country and areas along the south shore of Lake Ontario where dry air from southern Ontario will begin to advect southward. Lows will drop into the lower 30s in most locations, with mid to upper 20s for the North Country.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. A broad upper level low across Southern New England on Wednesday will gradually move east off into the Atlantic through Friday. Meanwhile, an elongated ridge of high pressure across central CONUS will gradually build eastward across our region during the period. This will establish a cool, but mainly dry, pattern with a weak flow and minimal dynamic forcing. The upper level low will maintain quite a bit of moisture and clouds, especially across eastern portions of the forecast area. There might be a stray rain or snow shower east of Lake Ontario as weak vorticity maxes pivot around the back of the upper low.

This will maintain cool weather for Wednesday and Thursday with 850mb temperatures around -6C supporting daytime highs in the mid 40s to lower 50s. The surface high will finally build across our region on Friday, providing a bit more sunshine and warmer weather with highs in the lower to mid 50s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Ridging at the surface and aloft will remain across our region through Saturday. Expect pleasant weather on Saturday, due to a gradual warming trend and a bit more sunshine. 12z model consensus has trended slightly slower will the passage of a weak cold front or wave, which will extend from low pressure tracking into Georgian Bay. This weak boundary is expected to move across the area on Sunday, bringing a small chance of showers with its passage. Then some model guidance shows a diffuse shortwave crossing our region on Monday. Given model differences will carry rather uniform low chance PoPs across the region on Sunday and Monday. The jet stream will remain to our north and keep any real cold air trapped well into Canada. As a result, temperatures will still average slightly above normal on Monday, even on the 'cold' side of the front.

AVIATION /19Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Widespread showers and areas of light rain will continue through the rest of the afternoon and through most of tonight. VSBY will be a mix of VFR and MVFR in the showers, with MVFR more prevalent in areas of persistent rain. CIGS will continue to slowly lower through the afternoon, with MVFR becoming widespread at lower elevations and IFR across higher terrain. CIGS will lower further overnight through early Tuesday morning, with IFR becoming widespread across the lower and higher elevations of Western NY, and MVFR across the lower elevations east of Lake Ontario. The low stratus may intersect some of the higher hills of the Southern Tier tonight through early Tuesday morning, with hilltop fog and mountain obscuration developing.

Showers will decrease in coverage on Tuesday, with most areas becoming mainly dry by afternoon outside of a few isolated showers from the Southern Tier into the western Finger Lakes. CIGS in low stratus will begin to improve during the afternoon, with higher elevations improving from IFR to MVFR, and lower elevations near the lakeshores improving to VFR.

Outlook .

Wednesday through Saturday . Mainly VFR.

MARINE. Moderate southwest winds on Lake Erie this afternoon will begin to diminish by early evening, allowing winds and waves to drop below Small Craft Advisory criteria. Winds will then become light overnight through Tuesday morning on both lakes. Northeast winds will increase on Lake Ontario from mid morning through the afternoon on Tuesday. Winds and waves should stay below Small Craft Advisory levels, but choppy conditions will develop along the south shore. The northeast winds may increase further Tuesday night through early Wednesday, and may support a period of Small Craft conditions along the south shore of Lake Ontario.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 11 PM EDT this evening for LEZ040- 041.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.
