AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Albany NY 1045 AM EDT Tue Apr 23 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will shift eastward today bringing partly to mostly sunny, breezy and milder weather. A low pressure system will bring some rain and a localized high elevation rain snow mix tonight through Wednesday. High pressure then returns with dry weather to end the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/

UPDATE
As of 1045 AM EDT, weak surface high pressure continues to be squeezed between an approaching frontal low to the west and a cutoff flow drifting northward to the east over the Atlantic. Modest pressure falls have begun locally per regional ASOS and NYS Mesonet observations, but cloud cover has largely remained to the west of the region; have therefore lowered sky cover expectation through the afternoon, however mostly cloudy skies are still anticipated for this evening.
Temperatures are warming as expected beneath sunny skies, while dewpoints have remained fairly low, supporting the issuance of Special Weather Statements in collaboration with state environmental and forestry agencies across VT and much of NY for enhanced risk of fire spread as gusty south winds increase over the coming few hours. Forecast therefore remains on track; see previous discussion below...

.PREV DISCUSSION [0645 AM EDT]...High pressure will be positioned to our east today. The approach of a positively tilted upper-level trough and surface low pressure system from the west will result in a gradual increase in high clouds through the day, but it should still remain partly to mostly sunny through the afternoon. Following a cold start to the day with temperatures in the mid-20s to mid-30s, southerly return flow will aid in temperatures rebounding into the 60s for most areas with some upper 50s across the higher elevations. An increased pressure gradient will result in breezy conditions developing this afternoon where a few gusts could reach 25 mph.
Any precipitation from our approaching system will hold off until at least the evening hours.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
A neutral to positively tilted upper level trough will cross the region Tuesday night through Wednesday. Low pressure will track near or just north of our area on Wednesday with a strong cold front crossing the region on Wednesday. Clouds will increase and thicken this evening with showers arriving from west to east overnight into Wednesday morning. There is the chance for some breaks of sun to occur for areas south and east of the Capital District on Wednesday that some weak instability develops and results in the potential for a rumble of thunder with any convective showers that develop. Precipitation should taper off from northwest to southeast Wednesday afternoon. The arrival of cold air at the surface and aloft behind the cold front could result in some wet snowflakes mixing in across portions of the Adirondacks and southern Greens Wednesday afternoon before precipitation ends but generally no accumulation is expected.
Overall QPF amounts look rather light for this evening with less than 0.20 inches across much of the area. Upslope flow could result in some QPF amounts up to 0.40 inches across the Adirondacks. The clouds and southerly flow will keep temperatures milder tonight with values in the upper 30s to mid-40s. Temperatures reach the lower 40s to upper 50s on Wednesday with falling temperatures in the afternoon hours behind the cold front. Windy conditions will develop behind the front as well with some gusts over 30 mph possible.

Canadian high pressure builds in Wednesday night and will remain anchored over the region through Thursday night. Clear/mostly clear and dry weather is expected during this time with less wind compared to Wednesday. It will be on the cold side both Wednesday and Thursday night with lows in the 20s to lower 30s.
Highs will only reach the 50s on Thursday with some upper 40s across the higher elevations.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
The period starts out on Friday with high pressure over the region providing dry conditions, near normal temperatures and relatively light winds. The high will shift eastward off the New England coast Fri night, with a slight southerly flow developing. This will result in low temperatures not as cold as the previous few nights.

An upper level ridge axis will move east across the area on Saturday. Guidance has slightly slowed the arrival of some showers associated with a warm front approaching from the south/west as it encounters the ridging. So will now mention only slight chance PoPs from the Hudson Valley east and low chance west through Sat afternoon. The upper ridge is expected to flatten somewhat as a possible disturbance aloft moves through Sat night. Along with the warm front, this should yield scattered showers with milder lows in the 40s.

The warm front should lift north of our region on Sunday, as upper ridging becomes re-established. This will result in temperatures warming to above normal levels with lower/mid 70s for highs in most valleys. There will still be a slight/low chance of some showers spilling over the ridge, but overall it looks mainly dry Sun into Sun night. The peak of the anomalous warmth is expected to occur on Mon, with the ridge axis overhead and developing low level SW flow. A cold front approaching from the west may bring showers and perhaps even a few thunderstorms Mon afternoon/evening.

AVIATION /15Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Through 12z Wednesday...VFR conditions will likely prevail through the 24 hour TAF period with high pressure over the region early this morning, then shifting eastward off the New England coast during the day. Just some high level cirrus clouds will be around today. Mid level clouds will move in from the north/west late this evening into the overnight hours ahead of a low pressure system starting to approach from the Great Lakes region. Cigs are expected to lower to around 4-5 kft by around 09z Wednesday, with scattered showers developing as the system gets closer. Some borderline MVFR conditions are possible around or shortly after 12z Wed.

Winds will initially be near calm through early this morning, then becoming southerly and increasing to around 10-13 kt with gusts of 20-25 kt developing by this afternoon. Winds tonight will remain southerly with speeds decreasing to around 5-10 kt.
Borderline low level wind shear may develop this evening as SW winds aloft increase. Will continue to monitor trends and will include in subsequent TAFs if confidence increases.

FIRE WEATHER
High pressure will shift eastward today bringing partly to mostly sunny, breezy and milder weather with temperatures rising into the 60s with some upper 50s across the higher elevations. RH values will lower to 25 to 35 percent during the afternoon hours with southerly winds gusting to around 25 mph.

A period of rainfall is expected tonight through Wednesday and may mix with or end as a brief period of snow across portions of the Adirondacks and southern Greens before ending. Dry weather then returns for Thursday and Friday with winds generally 5 to 15 mph both days.
