AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Albany NY 940 PM EDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. A gradual warming trend is expected this week with temperatures back above normal by Wednesday. Spotty showers are possible at times through Tuesday, with a couple more periods of precipitation possible Tuesday night into Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/. As of 930 PM EDT, another small upper level impulse was producing isolated/scattered showers and sprinkles across southern VT, the upper Hudson Valley and Lake George/Saratoga region. These showers/sprinkles should continue tracking southeast through midnight, affecting the northern Taconics, Berkshires, and northeast portions of the Capital Region before decreasing in coverage and ending around midnight.

In the wake of these showers/sprinkles, some clearing was noted upstream, before thickening high/mid level clouds approach from the Great Lakes region. This period of clearing toward and especially just after midnight should allow temps to quickly fall off into the 40s for many areas, with some 30s possible across portions of the southern Adirondacks, upper Hudson Valley and southern VT. Also, in areas where showers occurred this evening, some patchy fog may develop given light to calm winds combined with the moist boundary layer and quick cooling, and have added this mention in the forecast.

Increasing warm advection from the west is expected as the deep midlevel trough shifts eastward, which should result in an increase in clouds once again toward daybreak Tuesday. Near to slightly below normal temps are expected, although temps will likely reach mins a couple of hours before sunrise, with some potential for warming closer to sunrise as the thicker clouds arrive.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. A series of generally weak disturbances are expected to generate isolated to scattered showers at times through Tuesday night, with potential for a more organized area of rainfall on Wednesday, though with low predictability at this time. Temperatures will continue to moderate through midweek.

Northwest flow aloft continues on Tuesday, but the airmass will moderate as weak 850 mb warm air advection occurs from the west. Although deep layer moisture will be somewhat limited, it will be on the increase Tuesday, and weak isentropic lift may result in a few showers at times, particularly along and north of I-90. Highs on the order of 5F warmer than today are expected as the airmass moderates, which are still slightly below normal. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected. Perhaps a bit more shower coverage Tuesday night as a stronger wave is forecast to slide through. Lows forecast to be milder than recent nights, generally in the 50s.

Wednesday, the midlevel flow is forecast to flatten out but remain energetic with potential for another wave or two to track through. Models seem to be depicting one or more organized areas of precipitation (possible MCS) tracking eastward from the lower western Great Lakes. Forecast instability looks to mainly remain to the south of the forecast area where these complexes would preferentially seem to track. However, some elevated instability is noted with Showalter values slightly below zero over the eastern Catskills, mid Hudson Valley, and Litchfield Hills, so have included likely PoPs and slight chance of thunder there. Elsewhere, chance of showers associated with the wave and cold front tracking through. Highs will be tricky and dependent on precipitation coverage, but will again go several degrees warmer than the previous day as 850 mb temps warm back into the low to mid teens (C). Drying trend in the cards for Wednesday night in the wake of the wave, with somewhat mild low temps in the 50s to near 60.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The end of the work week will feature temperatures well above normal before a cold front swings through the region, cooling things off for the weekend.

Thursday and Friday will be unseasonably warm and humid with south- southwesterly surface flow ushering in a humid airmass. This will result in unsettled weather starting Friday as a weak upper level shortwave passes overhead. A few light showers may be possible during the early morning hours on Friday. Chances then increase throughout the day within the warm sector as the main upper level trough axis digs southward into New York. Thunderstorms will also be possible during the afternoon and evening hours. Latest model soundings show 1000-1500 J/kg surface based instability with PWATs over an inch. So while there will likely be plenty of instability, the best forcing with the surface front will be delayed past peak heating. Afternoon highs on Friday look to be the warmest of the week with mid 80s in the valleys and lower 80s elsewhere.

The upper trough axis and surface cold front approach late Friday night/early Saturday morning. This will bring continued chances for rain showers and even thunderstorms. Though, the timing isn't ideal for strong thunderstorm potential past peak heating. The front will exit to our east Saturday morning with a drier and more seasonable airmass working its way into the region. A few showers may linger into the day on Saturday but should dry out for the remainder of the weekend and into next work week. Highs on Saturday will generally be in the 70s to low 80s. By Sunday, afternoon highs will be in the mid 60s to lower 70s, with lower humidity. Overnight lows will vary throughout the period with the mildest night being Friday night where lows will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. The coolest night looks to be Sunday night, with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.

AVIATION /02Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. An upper level disturbance passing through the region could bring a brief shower/sprinkle through 04Z/Tue, mainly for KGFL.

Otherwise, mainly dry late tonight through Tuesday, although can not completely rule out a passing shower/sprinkle Tuesday afternoon ahead of an approaching warm front and another upper level disturbance.

VFR conditions are expected through Tuesday. However, can not rule out some patchy ground fog at KGFL and possibly KPSF later tonight if evening showers pass through, and skies clear out briefly. This possibility looks greatest at KGFL. Should this occur, a period of MVFR/IFR conditions, mainly for VSBY, could occur between roughly 04Z-09Z/Tue.

Light/variable winds overnight should become southwest to west at 5-10 KT by mid to late Tuesday morning and should persist into the afternoon.

Outlook .

Tuesday Night: Moderate Operational Impact. Chance of SHRA. Wednesday: Moderate Operational Impact. Chance of SHRA. Wednesday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Thursday: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Thursday Night: No Operational Impact. NO SIG WX. Friday: Moderate Operational Impact Chance of SHRA. TSRA. Friday Night: Moderate Operational Impact Chance of SHRA. TSRA. Saturday: Low Operational Impact. Slight Chance of SHRA.

FIRE WEATHER. Partly to mostly cloudy with RH values not as dry or breezy Tuesday compared with Monday. Minimum RH of around 40 to 60 percent expected. A couple of spotty showers are possible, especially north of I-90. Wednesday will be milder and a bit more humid with scattered showers expected. It will become somewhat breezy in the afternoon.

HYDROLOGY. A couple of periods of mainly insignificant precipitation are expected into midweek. There is potential for a more organized complex of showers and thunderstorms to track into the eastern Catskills, Mid Hudson Valley, and Litchfield Hills Wednesday, but confidence is low and it is more likely that any heavy rainfall potential will remain to the south.

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.
