SYNOPSIS. A cold northwest flow will continue to produce light lake effect snow showers at times today southeast of the lakes with very light additional accumulation. High pressure will move into the region providing a period of quiet weather and a gradual warming trend Wednesday through Friday. Low pressure will then move into the eastern Great Lakes this weekend, bringing a return to unsettled weather.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Cold northwest flow prevails this morning as an expansive area of high pressure drops slowly south into the Midwest and Corn Belt. Despite drying profiles and lowering inversion heights, inversion top temperatures right in the dendritic growth zone and continues to produce plenty of lake clouds and light snow showers and flurries across much western New York this morning, with the Canadian GEM and satellite trends suggesting a weak upstream connection to Lake Huron. The light snow has increased a little in coverage and intensity over the past hour. The flurries and light snow showers will remain fairly widespread through mid morning before starting to fade away. Most areas will only see a dusting of fresh accumulation, with a small corridor over northeast Erie, western Genesee, and Wyoming counties possibly seeing up to an inch of fluff.

High pressure will continue its slow movement to the east today, reaching the Ohio valley by this afternoon. Backing flow on the northern periphery will bring the beginning stages of warm air advection aloft this afternoon. This will further weaken lingering snow shower activity and expect the activity across western New York to end this afternoon. Inversion heights remain a little higher off Lake Ontario, which may allow a few snow showers to redevelop southeast of Lake Ontario and with the backing flow any activity that does redevelop will be carried northward towards the Tug Hill region during the afternoon through early tonight. Additional snow accumulations will be very minor and less than an inch. Moisture east of Lake Ontario may become too shallow tonight, which could result in a bit of freezing drizzle, but chances of this occurring appear to be on the low side.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. Ridging will maintain dry weather as it moves east across the region through the mid week period. A gradual warming trend is expected as a southerly flow sends highs from the lower to mid 30s Wednesday into the upper 30s to lower 40s by Thursday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Quiet weather will continue for most of Friday as an area of high pressure over the Northeast and Eastern Canada slowly moves east. An approaching area of low pressure from the Tennessee Valley will start to increase POPs for Friday evening, with chance POPs across WNY. The area of low pressure will continue to track northeast toward the area and center over the western end of Lake Erie by Saturday morning. The low will slowly track east before a secondary and stronger area of low pressure develops Saturday evening off the coast of NY/NJ. The coastal low will continue to strengthen as it tracks northeast to the Gulf of Maine by Sunday night.

Likely POPs will be in place from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. A heavy water laden snow looks likely now, but temperatures will need to be monitored as any bump up in the temperatures will mean more rain likely. Some rain will mix in for Saturday afternoon across the lower elevations, but pure rain areas as of right now looks to be limited as model guidance continues to come in a bit cooler. Wrap around moisture will keep precipitation going through Sunday night before tapering off on Monday to showery coverage.

Temperatures will be in the upper 30s to low 40s on Friday, and in the mid 30s for Saturday and Sunday. Overall in the long term temperatures don't look to cool off much with temps aloft at 850 hPa staying mostly above -10C through most of next week, and if temps do drop to near -10C it looks to be brief. Even beyond this period, some models continue to lack cold temps anywhere, with the Euro lacking any 0C 850H readings late next week until you go all the way up to the Hudson Bay, but that being said, it is 10 days out.

AVIATION /14Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Lake effect clouds will continue this morning with bases higher MVFR to lower VFR (2500-3500 ft AGL). Scattered light snow showers will continue at KIAG, KBUF, and KJHW this morning, but visibilities should generally remain at or above 4SM. A small area of steadier light snow just east of KBUF will produce some IFR VSBY through late morning.

Light snow showers across western New York will gradually end during the day today, although MVFR CIGS may linger east and southeast of the lake. Lake effect snow showers and MVFR CIGS southeast of Lake Ontario will move to the east end of the lake later in the afternoon as winds become WSW. Some of this may move into KART toward evening.

Outlook .

Wednesday through Friday . Generally VFR. Saturday . MVFR/IFR possible with rain and wet snow.

MARINE. Surface high pressure across the Midwest will gradually settle over the Ohio Valley this afternoon and tonight which will allow a moderate pressure gradient to develop across the lower Great lakes. The resulting pressure gradient will allow light northwesterlies this morning to back southwest and freshen, with small craft conditons developing later this afternoon and tonight on the nearshore waters of both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. These conditions may linger into Wednesday.

High pressure will build north with quieter marine conditions developing later Wednesday and likely lasting through Friday.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM this afternoon to 7 AM EST Wednesday for LEZ040-041. Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM this afternoon to 7 AM EST Wednesday for LOZ042>044. Small Craft Advisory from 5 PM this afternoon to 3 PM EST Wednesday for LOZ045.

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.
