Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY 1014 PM EST Fri Feb 21 2020

SYNOPSIS. Expansive high pressure centered over the Tennessee valley will offer fair dry weather for our region through through the weekend with notable day to day warming. Temperatures by Sunday afternoon will be firmly in the 40s across the western counties . with the Genesee valley flirting with 50. Conditions will gradually deteriorate late Monday . then a prolonged period of unsettled weather will be with us for the rest of the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/. A large area of high pressure centered over the Tennessee Valley will become anchored over the Southeastern states during the weekend. This will guarantee fair dry weather for our forecast area overnight and Saturday . although a 45 to 50kt low level jet found just to the north of the expansive sfc high will keep a stiff breeze in place for much of the next 18 hours.

Temperatures will become increasingly more tolerable as well. The sub arctic air from Thursday night has exited the region . and with a combination of weak warm advection and gusty winds in the boundary layer to keep the environment mixed . the mercury tonight will only drop to the upper teens and 20s. This will be an improvement of about 10 degrees for most areas from what we experienced last (Thurs) night. The trend will certainly continue Saturday . as afternoon temperatures will generally range from 35 to 40. This is just about where we should be for this time of year.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. High pressure over the far southeast CONUS with weak ridging into northeast will provide dry weather through most of Monday. Steady warming trend continues with highs reaching well above climo Sunday through Monday with highs in the 40s both days and lows Sunday night not even dropping below freezing for most, though a few upper 20s will occur in the North Country. Clouds increase from the southwest on Monday, though rain showers should hold off til Monday night for majority of the area.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. A robust shortwave crossing the Gulf of Alaska this weekend will dive southeast across the Intermountain West on Monday. As we progress through the heart of the new work week . this energy will help to carve out a deep longwave trough that is eventually forecast to evolve into a large closed off storm system over Quebec by weeks end. While this will support a prolonged period of unsettled weather across our region . the trend for the resulting surface features has been to shift to the west. This will favor more rain for the FIRST HALF of the event Tuesday and Wednesday . then as cold air deepens on its backside . widespread accumulating snow can be anticipated for Thursday and Friday. While this snowfall could result in some slick travel . SIGNIFICANT impacts will likely be confined to the lake enhanced areas southeast of both lakes.

Eventually . arctic air will then charge south across our region as we make our way into next weekend.

AVIATION /03Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. VFR conditions will be in place throughout western and north central New York through the TAF period. While fair weather will be in place . sfc wind gusts will reach 30 kts at times . especially at KIAG and KBUF.

Outlook . Saturday night through Sunday night . VFR. Monday . Deteriorating to MVFR with rain showers likely. Tuesday . MVFR to IFR in scattered rain showers. Wednesday . MVFR to IFR with rain or snow showers likely.

MARINE. Fresh to strong southwesterlies will remain in place across the Lower Great Lakes overnight through a vast majority of the day Saturday. Winds and waves will then relax Saturday afternoon as the pressure gradient weakens.

BUF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NY . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EST Saturday for LEZ020-040- 041. Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EST Saturday for LOZ042>045.

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.
